While I love his playing in a trio setting, especially with Ray Brown on bass and either Herb Ellis on guitar or Ed Thigpen on drums, this solo album allows him to stand out and shine. And that he does. Listen to the sound samples on this page. Listen free to Oscar Peterson Exclusively For My Friends At Long Last Love, Easy Walker and more. 25 tracks 144:49. Oscar Peterson 1925-2007 was a Canadian jazz pianist and composer. Born in Montreal, Canada, Peterson began learning trumpet and piano from his father at the age of five, but by the age of seven, after a bout of tuberculosis, he concentrated on the piano. Some of the artists who influenced Peterson during the early years were Teddy Wilson, Nat King Cole, James P. Johnson, and the legendary Art Tatum, to whom many have tried to compare Peterson in later years. Exclusively for My Friends, Volume 4: My Favorite Instrument aka Soul-O Contents. Album infos.
