12/25/2007 Dig Up The Roots

 

The show had more of a winter feel than holiday: cold and bright, dreary and muted yet with some brightness and humor to round it all out.

Piano great, and giant of a man Oscar Peterson passed away this week. The show started (and ended) with a nice jazz set that included Blossom Dearie's Figure 8 song from the TV series Multiplication Rock. There were tunes from the land of 1960's TV, Gregorian England, contemporary classics and, as always, a few surprises thrown in and around.
