You Look Good To Me – 2005
The immortal pianist, at 80, playing a touching ballad
Oscar Peterson (1925-2007) was one of the greatest pianists of all time, a brilliant virtuoso who could outswing all of his competitors.
A significant player by 1945 and a household name by the early 1950s, Peterson was on hundreds of records and performed at thousands of concerts during his 60-year career.
In 1993 Peterson suffered a stroke that put him out of action for two years and permanently weakened his left-hand; his health gradually declined during his final 12 years although he toured as often as he could.
Even though he was largely a one-handed pianist during his last period, Peterson still displays his musical genius during this memorable performance.
