Oscar Peterson

A bridge from the present to MPS milestones of the past is built by the series "Ambassadors for MPS". Personalities of contemporary music culture such as Gilles Peterson, Ed Motta, Till Brönner or Götz Alsmann present their individual favourite albums from the Black Forest catalogue with personal liner notes, all in the usual high quality In trio formations, as soloist and co-musician of the Singers Unlimited - this is how the piano giant Oscar Peterson has shown himself so far on the re-releases from the MPS catalogue. In the series Ambassadors for MPS the Canadian now reveals another exciting face with a recording from 1969 selected by Till Brönner: On Motions & Emotions we experience him with jazz versions of popular pieces from pop, easy listening and songwriting as the protagonist of a quartet of long-time companions, embedded in rich orchestral colours. Painted by a wizard of the guild, the great Claus Ogerman, previously also in service to Antônio Carlos Jobim. Peterson plus quartet plus orchestra: inspiring detail work also in the popular sector. "The question of favorite albums is basically not an easy one, except in my case, because Motions & Emotions by Oscar Peterson is actually my all-time favorite album. I think Motions & Emotions is maybe even the perfect instrumental album." Till Brönner
