This concert was performed late in the career of this great jazzman. Still some magical touches, and some mesmerising solos from guitarist Ulf Wakenius.


Includes :- -Keeping the Groove Alive: The Life and Times of Oscar Peterson -Bosendorfer -- The Making Of The World's Greatest Instrument -The Complete Oscar Peterson on Verve Discography -Photogenic Journey of Vienna This concert was a very special event, and not just because of its celebratory circumstances and masterful music, but when a major figure acquires venerable status, he or she can take on a quality different from and more notable than mere charisma. It is as if all past achievements, experiences, and significant attributes have been crystallized into an aura that is both ethereal and palpable. One thinks of Muhammad Ali, Dame Judi Dench, Nelson Mandela - and assuredly on this evidence, Oscar Peterson. The outstanding camera work on this DVD captures the entire mood of the evening, not just the musicians' performance. The shots of the auditorium are as relevant and important as those of the bandstand. This audience really wanted to be there to experience one of the last great jazz masters whose art has touched millions of lives. Oscar Peterson "A Night In Vienna" is more than an evening of distinguished music-making, it is a distillation of all that he has accomplished and embodies, all that has made him - in the words of Quincy Jones, "one of the greatest musicians on the planet."
