Oscar Peterson dies.

The great and wonderfully nimble Oscar Peterson died. Wow, I'll miss him and am very greatful for all the music he recorded.

CNN article.
Born on August 15, 1925, in a poor neighborhood southwest of Montreal, Peterson obtained a passion for music from his father. Daniel Peterson, a railway porter and self-taught musician, bestowed his love of music to his five children, offering them a means to escape from poverty.
