Oscar Peterson (1925-2007) was a Canadian jazz pianist and composer. Born in Montreal, Canada, Peterson began learning trumpet and piano from his father at the age of five, but by the age of seven, after a bout of tuberculosis, he concentrated on the piano. Some of the artists who influenced Peterson during the early years were Teddy Wilson, Nat "King" Cole, James P. Johnson, and the legendary Art Tatum, to whom many have tried to compare Peterson in later years.

I've loved Oscar Peterson as long I've known about him. This book was written about 15 years before he passed away, so I'd like to read something additional that covered the rest of his life. Lots of interesting stories and memories. I especially liked learning about the different types of racism he encountered during his lifetime, his embracing of new technology, and the fact that he went to High School with Maynard Ferguson.
