Oscar Emmanuel Peterson simply was one of the best and most beloved Jazz-pianists of all time, an influential player with deep roots in boogie-woogie and ragtime who lent his talented touch to everything from Swing to Bebop and even Pop.
John Coltrane was arguably the most influential saxophonist in modern Jazz. A deeply spiritual person, musician, and composer, a ceaseless innovator, a creative searcher and a searching creator from Bebop through Modal Jazz and into the Free Jazz Avantgarde.
