Oscar Peterson: Black + White explores the seven-decade career of a jazz master: from his days as a child prodigy in Montreal, to the development of his signature sound on recordings with his trio; from collaborations with huge stars of his era, to his tenacious experiences confronting racism and segregation while touring the United States, which culminated with his epic composition, Hymn to Freedom. Featuring appearances by musical legends as well as stunning new performances, Oscar Peterson: Black + White is a ground-breaking “docu-concert” that explores the sound, stardom, and staggering virtuosity of an international jazz icon.
