Reva Marin (au)
For more than 50 years, Oscar Peterson has been one of the leading players on the international jazz stage. This book traces Oscarís beginnings in the poor, black neighborhoods of Montreal, where his West Indian parents immigrated. Oscar had success as a classical pianist, but his yearning to play jazz took him to the U.S., where he confronted the racial prejudice that he would face throughout his career. Provides an inside glimpse into what it is like to play jazz. Introduces difficult concepts like improvisation & explains the difference between the piano styles of boogie-woogie, stride & bebop. Takes readers inside the life of a jazz musician in a way that will be inspiring & revealing to anyone who has taken music lessons or dreamed of starting a band. Photos.
