In honor of what would have been Oscar Peterson's 90th birthday in 2015 - piano virtuoso and influencer of some the most celebrated jazz artists in the world - his widow Kelly Peterson created a tribute to her late husband by recording some of the world’s greatest jazz pianists performing Oscar’s rarely heard compositions. Last night, the tribute came to Symphony Center with a star-studded lineup of astonishing talent.

The cast featured pianists Audrey Morris, Kenny Barron, Robi Botos, Bill Charlap, Benny Green, Ramsey Lewis and Renee Rosnes, with Dave Young on bass and Celine Peterson (Oscar and Kelly Peterson's daughter) as narrator. Photos by @toddrphoto.
