Japanese jazz and classical pianist Makoto Ozone has performed with Chick Corea, Branford Marsalis, and was a favourite of Oscar Peterson. He founded the group No Name Horses, hosts a jazz radio program, and writes music for live theatre and TV.
“The astonishing Seoul-born singer Youn Sun Nah ... [is] a discreet, diminutive vocal giant.” (The Guardian) “Youn Sun Nah is “a UFO touching the universe of music with a magnificent voice and passionate originality” (Le Monde). Her guitarist is the great Swede, Ulf Wakenius, who was a member of Oscar’s quartet for over a decade.

Presented in partnership with The Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival.
The Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival takes place over three concerts and includes the Canadian Jazz Master Awards, lifetime achievement accolades given to two prominent Canadian jazz musicians, one living and one posthumously. Two of the concerts take place in Koerner Hall with some artists dear to Oscar, such as Makoto Ozone, Ulf Wakenius, and Christian McBride.
