PETERSON Oscar

PETERSON OSCAR EMMANUEL (P)

Montreal, Canada. 15/8/1925. – Mississauga, Canada. 23/12/2007.

Il padre lavorava come portabagagli nelle ferrovie canadesi e dedicava il tempo libero alla musica e proprio nell’orchestrina di famiglia che, il figlio Oscar, ha fatto il suo debutto. A quattordici anni ha partecipato ad un concorso per musicisti dilettanti, risultando primo ed è stato scritturato dalla stazione radiofonica di Montreal. Ha perfezionato i suoi studi musicali con Paul de Marky, dedicandosi anche alla musica classica. Nel 1944 è entrato nell’orchestra di Johnny Holmes. Già nel 1947 è stato indicato come il miglior musicista canadese e nel 1949 è emigrato negli Stati Uniti dove è stato scritturato da Norman Granz che lo ha presentato alla Carnegie Hall nella sua Jazz At The Philarmonic. Ha subito riscosso grande successo ed è stato subito invitato a prendere parte ad una serie numerose incisioni. Nel 1953 ha messo su il suo primo trio con Herb Ellis e Ray Brown, attivo sino al 1958, in seguito Ed Thigpen ha preso il posto di Ellis sino al 1965. Tra il 1960 ed il 1963 ha fondato e diretto una scuola di musica a Toronto. Durante la sua lunga e prolifica carriera ha suonato ed inciso con un gran numero di musicisti tra i quali: Lester Young, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Carter, Lionel Hampton, Coleman Hawkins, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Milton Jackson, Stan Getz, John Lippman. Ha registrato molti album da solista, con un’orchestra sinfonica ed ha avuto una lunga collaborazione con il bassista Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen. Dal 1993 ha dovuto limitare la sua attività per un disturbo cardiaco che lo ha colpito al lato sinistro limitandogli l’uso della mano, ciononostante ha continuato anche se in modo molto ridotto l’attività sia concertistica che di registrazione. I suoi punti di riferimento sono stati Nat King Cole per l’eleganza, per il tocco elegante ed il gusto armonico, e Art Tatum per la grande padronanza della tastiera e di tutte le tecniche pianistiche. Naturalmente a sua volta ha fatto scuola. Pianista ritenuto da qualcuno eterogeneo e meccanico ma dotato di un grande virtuosismo, di una tecnica spaventosa e dallo swing poderoso e coinvolgente. Senz’altro uno dei pianisti più importanti e completi della storia del jazz.

PETRINI ALBERTO (P)

Pianista che si è affacciato alla ribalta nel nuovo panorama pianistico dell’inizio degli anni ’90. Musicista che non tende a metter in mostra delle particolari doti stilistiche, ma cerca di esprimersi in atmosfere rarefatte. Il suo modo di suonare prezioso e cullante ricorda il Keith Jarrett. IL suo è un pianismo dalla linearità narrativa che dopo una introduzione pacata cresce, in modo ascetico e solitario. Pianista dal tocco strumentale bello e cantabile. Manca solo nell’interpretazione dei brani quella idea che li rende memorabili.
