The world premiere of Oscar Peterson’s AFRICA!
Early in 1983, Peterson completed and recorded his Africa Suite. Two songs from that suite, "Nigerian Marketplace" (containing echoes of gospel and salsa) and "Peace" (the blues-inspired conclusion) became part of his concert repertoire. The entire suite has never been performed live in front of an audience, until now.

Join Benny Green (piano), Christian McBride (bass), Lewis Nash (drums), and a big band conducted by John Clayton, complete with Peterson’s own piano on the Koerner Hall stage.
