Canadian jazz pianist and composer Oscar Peterson was called the “Maharaja of the keyboard” by Duke Ellington, but simply “OP” by his friends. He released over 200 recordings, won eight Grammy Awards, and received numerous other awards and honours. He is considered one of the greatest jazz pianists, and played thousands of concerts worldwide in a career lasting more than 60 years. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 82.

Ella Fitzgerald was sometimes referred to as the “First Lady of Song”, “Queen of Jazz”, and “Lady Ella”. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing, timing, intonation, and a “horn-like” improvisational ability, particularly in her scat singing. She passed away in 1996 at the age of 79.
