Oscar Peterson on the Synclavier [1983]

Happy New Year everybody, and here we have a marvelous video clip of the illustrious Canadian jazz pianist and composer Oscar Peterson in full-blown electronic home-studio mode! Oscar speaks candidly of the limitations he and his friends encounter on the piano. All-in-all he seems quite comfortable with (and excited by!) the new possibilities available within the latest sequencing and sound technologies, and especially the Synclavier II workstation. There are many beautiful synthesizers cameos herein, including a giant Roland System 100m, Roland System 700, Roland Jupiter 8, ARP 2500, ARP Chroma, and more. We understand Oscar was sponsored by Roland at around the time this video was produced. We would be thrilled to hear more of his electronic recordings.
