Oscar Peterson Thoughts On Alvin...


Dear Alvin, Thanks for creating a great website about yourself. In this day and age everthing is twitter of Facebook, it takes determination and alot of pride to post your life story in a website. Many prople just don't take the time to read anymore. So, I heard your stuff up here in Boston on the Harvard radio station. "From I Ain't Lookin'At You" recording. Please continue to make great jazz music. I also grew up in the Bronx, Pelham Parkway. a different experience but on a similar level of economic existance and finding ways to get around it. My Dad was a jazz bassist and vocalist but, my family did not respect him or encourage music,...or anything for that matter. Anyway, you're great. Thanks for telling your story. Sincerely, Mike Turk
