Oscar Peterson - Berlin Concert 1989
This performance from Berlin in 1989 features the Master of the Keyboard backed by the equally legendary bassist
Niels-Henning Oersted Pedersen and drummer Martin Drew. Oscar Peterson was a star in Canada, his homeland, before Norman Granz brought him to this country in 1949 for a surprise debut at Carnegie Hall. First, a perennial mainstay of Jazz at the Philharmonic, the charismatic Oscar Peterson soon enjoyed universal popularity. This DVD is a prime example of how he delighted the audiences of five continents in the framework of his superb trios.

Ben Webster (1909-1973) was, without a doubt, one of the most important and influential tenor saxophonists in jazz. This outstanding DVD gives us the rare opportunity to not only listen to Webster, but to see him in performance, exquisitely backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio featuring the late Danish bassist
Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen. This DVD boasts excellent sound and image quality (in color) given the time of the performance, allowing us to listen and see the magic that these two musical giants produced together. The program, as was normally the case with Webster's concerts, consists of jazz standards, an occasional blues and numerous Ellington tunes.
