“It’s the group sound that’s important, even when you’re playing a solo. You not only have to know your own instrument, you must know the others and how to back them up at all times. That’s Jazz.” – Oscar Peterson, Canadian Jazz pianist & composer, considered to have been one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. Peterson’s career spanned 60 years during which time he made 200 recordings and won 8 Grammy Awards.
