Music in the Key of Oscar

This riveting music documentary traces the history of piano legend Oscar Peterson, from his early days as Montreal's teenage boogie-woogie sensation through his meteoric rise to international celebrity. One highlight in this treasure trove of musical gems is the legendary Oscar Peterson Trio (bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis) who after a twenty-year hiatus, reunited in order to "prove that it still had the magic."
Over 100 minutes of classic and contemporary performances, rare film footage, in-depth interviews with a cast of jazz legends and multiple Bonus Features, create a chronicle spanning five decades of Oscar Peterson's unforgettable music.
