Honoring Oscar Peterson with Hilario Duran’s Trio

Renowned Cuban-Canadian piano maestro Hilario Duran, leading his Trio, will pay tribute to the legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. This musical endeavor stands as one of Duran’s most emotive expressions, celebrating the legacy of Peterson, an iconic figure in jazz history and one of Canada’s most esteemed musicians.

Duran’s journey in music traces back to the 1970s when he emerged as the chosen successor to Chucho Valdés in Cuba’s Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna, a leading modern big band at the time. His global tours and collaborations with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie and Michel Legrand, notably during his tenure with Arturo Sandoval’s band as pianist, keyboardist, arranger, and musical director for nine years, have enriched his artistic repertoire.

Having embraced Canada as his home, Duran has garnered numerous accolades, including multiple Canadian JUNO Awards and nominations, multiple GRAMMY nominations, and recognition from the Canadian National Jazz Awards. Additionally, he received the prestigious 2007 Chico O’Farrill Lifetime Achievement Award from Latin Jazz USA for his exceptional contributions to Afro-Cuban Jazz and Latin Jazz.

The Trio’s performance promises a fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms, modern jazz elements, and contemporary harmonies in homage to Oscar Peterson’s profound musical legacy. With Hilario Duran’s masterful touch on the piano, the past, present, and future of Cuban music intertwines seamlessly with the swinging legacy of Oscar Peterson.

All About Jazz has aptly described Hilario Duran as “a pianist and composer of remarkable virtuosity,” highlighting his ability to craft marvelous music that transcends boundaries and captivates audiences worldwide.
