Pianist Ben Paterson delves into the music of two of his heroes, Oscar Peterson and Nat King Cole, channeling the infectious swing feel and lyrical improvisation of the two jazz giants. Peterson and Cole both favored a drummer-less trio format of piano, bass, and guitar, one that allows the band to dig in to a hard-driving, yet subtle and nuanced groove that makes it impossible for listeners to sit still. Backed by Chicago's own Chris Madsen on sax, bassist Clark Sommers and guitarist Andy Brown, Peterson will deliver vocals on rarely-heard jazz standards picked especially for this tribute show at Winter's Jazz Club.
