Oliver Jones is among the most famous living jazz musicians you've probably never heard of. The celebrated Canadian pianist was the protege of Oscar Peterson, and he's done much to spread the gospel of Canadian jazz in his 81 years. He marked his retirement this year with a special trio performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival and Jazz Night was there. We feature his final trio performance in Montreal, interview Cecile Peterson — the daughter of Oscar Peterson — and learn about some of Montreal's rich jazz history.
