Perfectionist, practical joker, and one of the all-time greatest exponents of jazz, Oscar Peterson is unlike any music legend that ever was or ever will be. Dubbed the "Maharajah of Piano" by Duke Ellington, his utter dedication to music for the past seven decades has taken him to the pinnacle of international success and to the depths of emotional despair. Oscar Peterson: Keeping the Groove Alive reveals the man behind the legend, featuring compelling interviews with Diana Krall, Herbie Hancock, Phil Nimmons and many more. At 78, Oscar Peterson is still performing still keeping the groove alive.
