From 1951 to 1966, bassist Ray Brown and pianist Oscar Peterson were partners in the Oscar Peterson Trio, recording some of the most exciting and beloved jazz music of that era. This concert catches the spirit of this famous and fruitful collaboration with some of today’s finest keyboard and string bass artists. Our special guest will be bassist John Clayton, considered Ray Brown’s main protégé and legacy-keeper, who performs on Mr. Brown’s bass. Also performing will be Larry Fuller, Ray Brown's final pianist, as well as all three members of the Jeff Hamilton Trio

John Clayton recently dropped by the studios of Jazz 88 to talk to Dave Drexler on "Inside Art" about this concert and his time performing with Ray Brown.

The San Diego Union-Tribune has published a story featuring personal reflections on the greatness of Oscar Peterson and Ray Brown by our guests Jeff Hamilton and Mike Wofford plus a fascinating assortment of quotes by the late jazzmen themselves!

*San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear as part of this concert.
