Something is messed up -- not sure how to proceed -- I'd appreciate guidance from experienced editors. The paragraph starting with "One of the signature pianos is located in the lobby of the Arts Commons formerly, Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts " states that the concert hall is in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada when in fact it is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The cited article states the event occurred in Edmonton at a concert hall located in Calgary on the very night that the Juno Awards main gala was happening in Calgary, which would seem to preclude the event from happening in Calgary on that date.
So it probably was in Edmonton, but the venue in the article is incorrect. I haven't found any other citation that might clarify the situation. Goodwithfish talk30 January UTC. Did you know that Glenn Gould admired Mr. Peterson - in one of his letters he refers to it.
One Canadian pianist to another. Is there some reason the last edit removed the second and Its All Right With Me - Oscar Peterson - Please Mr.Peterson: Oscar Peterson paragraphs?
I don;t care if you edit anonymously, but it would be nice to know why a major change like that has been made. I got on this page redirected by a link to the oscar peterson trio. Since the trio had during several years fixed members and appeared as an entity, wouldn't it be appropiate to separate the discography for the albums from the Oscar Peterson Trio and from Oscar Peterson as soloist or with companion?
Jazz pianist - that was his entire professional career, a great career. He was one of the best pianists who professionally played jazz music, from boogie-woogie to ballads. He also accompanied some great jazz singers. His jazz recordings are very uneven in perfomance quality; some are great, some are not. However, calling him one of the best of ALL pianists would be wrong in many ways. He never recorded serious classical piano concertos by Franz Lisztor Tchaikovskyor Sergei Rachmaninov on professional level with a full symphony orchestra.
Peterson himself admitted that he never reached the quality of piano playing of his jazz model, Art Tatum. Other great pianists in jazz were Duke EllingtonBill Evansand more. Young virtuoso Eldar Djangirov delivered some outstanding performances compared by many to Oscar Peterson, whom he calls Its All Right With Me - Oscar Peterson - Please Mr.Peterson: Oscar Peterson model, as well as Art Tatum.
His jazz trios, and some performances during 50s - 80s as accompanist, were very nice. Steve shelok honov30 December UTC. His opinion is reputable in jazz, albeit his profession as a jazz critic has little to do with ALL pianists. While I have no interest or desire in claiming anyone to be the "Best Pianist Ever" - such a thing is practically impossible - I do find the attitude that appears above rather priggy.
I think that the archaic attitude that "Classical Music" - a very misleading term in the first place - is somehow the benchmark against which other musicians should be graded is inappropriate. Jazz, Rock and many other forms have their own complexities which require skills that many what you refer to as classical pianists simply do not ordinarily have to deal with.
Improvisation is an obvious starting point for which Rachmaninov did not leave much room. Rachmanininov is NOT a classical composer except in the rather narrow minded world of "If he uses violins and stuff and was before it's classical" Those of you who feel that Classical Camelot Fantasy - Ceephax* - Drive Time is the real thing and all the rest are making the best of a bad job really don't have much of a clue.
My name is Andy. New to Wikipedia, not new to the music which you are misrepresenting. I have added the Oscar Peterson postage stamp to this page. It should be usuable under canadian crown copyright and even American Laws since this page is actually talking about the stamp.

A wonderful gentle man of free spirit and peace. A major loss to the world of jazz. They broke the mold when they made Oscar. His style never changed in all the years he performed—and it didn't need to change.
He got it right the first time! Rest in peace, Oscar. Basser g talk25 December UTC. The first sentence states that he was a "jazz pianist, singer Are there any notable songs or albums which he actually sings on? Blackjays1 talk2 January UTC. An editor has questioned the user box listing "pianist" before "composer".
You could say that the entire article, with many references, documents his primacy as a pianist. He composed some nice pieces and on a Mac when I visited him inbut he spent most of his time playing others' pieces.
I also added "Canadian leader" which the article also documents. He also sang in a few pieces, as the previous discussion noted, but it was non-notable a record label tried to get him to emulate Nat King Cole in the early s. Bellagio99 talk18 January UTC. Agree with Paul Erik. Being an iconic figure among fans is one thing, compare to Glenn Gouldanother Canadian genius, arguably the best Canadian pianist, and an definitive icon and role model for some classical pianists just like Peterson is for some jazz pianists ; albeit Glenn Gould's infobox does not mention him as an icon.
Comparing pianist to pianist is fare, but comparing a pianist to a hockey star, especially the caliber of the Great Gretzy, please I love Oscar Peterson, his 50s trio and his 70s solo piano works are Palestines And Jews - Various - Dordt Hits Back!, still other jazz pianists of his time were no less great: Art TatumBill EvansDuke Ellington to name just a few. However, outside of jazz piano specialty, there are quite many supreme pianists in Canada and in the rest of the world.

Glenn Gouldanother Canadian genius, arguably the best Canadian pianist, and an definitive icon and role model for some classical pianists just like Peterson is for some jazz pianists ; albeit Glenn Gould's infobox does not mention him as a Canadian icon. Its All Right With Me - Oscar Peterson - Please Mr.Peterson: Oscar Peterson among entertainers and critics simply does not exist, decisions are motivated by personal likings, politics and money, not by serious quality and beauty, sadly.
Encyclopedias are to be more careful, especially in such "grey area" as mixing jazz pianists with classical pianists and declaring the best of all. Only a few of jazz pianists accomplished decent performances of high end classical piano concertos with symphony orchestras, Chick Corea's and Keith Jarrett's performances of Mozart's piano concerto No.
None of the jazz pianists were able to perform seriously difficult piano pieces like this or concertos by Franz Lisztor the No. We Its All Right With Me - Oscar Peterson - Please Mr.Peterson: Oscar Peterson yet to see any jazz pianist play Liszt's La Campanella like this or like this .
Chopin's Revolutionary Etude is rarely played by Both Ends Burning - Roxy Music - Siren pianists like this take by Andre Wattsjust see this . Mixing Oscar Peterson with all pianists, including classical musicians mentioned above, is not serious, and does not do justice to this great jazz man. Let Canada decide who is their national icon. Let more professionals with adequate scope, exposure and knowledge formulate definitions, ranking, and who is who.
No matter how much we like some entertainers, we are just Wikipedia users, not decision makers. Steve shelok honov21 January UTC. I edited the sentence about Paul de Marky. De Marky was not a student of Liszt he was born 9 years after Liszt's deathbut he was a student of Istvan Thoman who was a student of Franz Liszt. Batonpower talk22 January UTC.
