Oliver Jones has been playing piano for 75 of his 81 years, much of it in his hometown of Montreal. His family moved houses to be closer to the Peterson family, whose son Oscar’s star was already rising. Jones studied under Peterson’s sister Daisy, considered the best piano teacher in Montreal. After building his reputation in local jazz clubs, beginning as a child—he was nine years old at his first gig—Jones then spent 16 years based out of Puerto Rico, touring with Kenny Hamilton. Since returning to Canada in the 80s, Jones has recorded nearly two dozen albums, the most recent being Just for My Lady in 2013. Known for his lightning-fast technique, solid articulation, powerful lyricism, and rollicking rhythms, Jones is a national treasure.
Oliver Jones has received the National Order of Quebec, a Governor General’s Award, two Juno Awards, a Martin Luther King Jr. Award, is an officer of the Order of Canada, and even has his own stamp.
