Love Ballade – Oscar Peterson (sheet music)
Best Sheet Music download from our Library.
Oscar Peterson (Montreal, August 15, 1925-Mississauga, December 23, 2007) was a Canadian jazz pianist.
His style, formed during the forties as in the case of other pianists such as Erroll Garner and George Shearing, oscillates between swing and bop, and falls within the classicist or traditional trend of jazz.
A follower of Art Tatum, he is an acoustic pianist with great technique, with a remarkable ability to play with speed and great ability to swing, regardless of the playing tempo. Both his performances in small groups and accompanying singers are praised, although his best moments are as a soloist.
Although underappreciated, Peterson is also a songwriter. For example, he wrote and recorded the famed ‘Canadiana Suite’ in 1964. Several of his own works have been recorded on electric piano. Exceptionally vocal, his voice is very reminiscent of Nat King Cole’s.Follow @LibrarySheet
