Oscar Peterson Piano Lesson

Thisis one of the most impressive videos I’ve seen. In an appearance on The Dick Cavett Show, Oscar showcases his talent and intelligence by doing some off-the-cuff demonstrations of different jazz piano styles. All Dick has to do is name the style, and Oscar gives a clear explanation and plays a short example. It’s fascinating. He shows us the styles of Art Tatum, Nat King Cole, Earl Garner, and George Shearing, as well as several other techniques. Mind-blowing.
