Swinging with Oscar: Tribute to Oscar Peterson by Rémi Bolduc
With several impressive tribute tours under his belt, one of Canada’s finest jazz saxophonists, Rémi Bolduc, brings his jazz ensemble to Toronto as part of their national “Swingin’ with Oscar” tour honoring the jazz icon, Oscar Peterson.
The legendary Oscar Peterson is recognized as one of the most important pianist in the entire history of jazz. During the course of his career, the Montreal-born pianist and composer played alongside music greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong. A few of Peterson’s music accomplishments include his 8 Grammy Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997, the Governor General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1992 and a Companion of the Order of Canada.
This concert, Swingin’ with Oscar, features The Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble, in a thrilling set commemorating the Canadian icon’s brilliance and profound influence on jazz music. Joining Rémi Bolduc are Taurey Bulter on piano, Fraser Hollins on bass and David Laing on drums.
The stop at Lula Lounge in Toronto is Bolduc’s only club date on the upcoming Ontario tour and offers an opportunity to see these fine artists in an intimate venue while enjoying food and drinks.
