Here's That Rainy Day

24.12.07



Canadian Jazz Giant, Oscar Peterson has died.

No matter his age, or the recent state of his health, this is an immense and devastating loss. Thank you for EVERYTHING Oscar, you will be missed.

From the year I was born, a great performance of "Just Friends"

  4. These occasions surprise with the depth of feeling for someone you have never met, but who has been an important part of your life. He will always be an important part of our lives.

  6. When I used to work for a glassblower at the corner of College & Spadina, Mr. Peterson used to come buy our artwork.

    Peace, Oscar Peterson. Thank you.

  7. The New York Times Magazine did their annual issue about those who passed away this year. I think what made me the most depressed was losing Pavorotti...
