Oscar, With Love, was released as a 3 CD set in 2015 to observe the 90th birthday of jazz piano legend Oscar Peterson (1925-2007). To honor her late husband, Kelly Peterson assembled some of the most celebrated jazz artists in the world to perform and record on the luminary's prized personal piano, then released the recordings as a deluxe collector's edition shortly before the 10-year anniversary of the celebrated pianist’s passing. Now, a deluxe limited edition 5-LP 180-gram box set, re-sequenced for vinyl, is slated to be released on February 21 in a two-piece box with a 40-page booklet.

Sadly this is not April 1st, and this is not a joke. The Banning CA facility housing Apollo/Transco lacquer manufacturing burned today and is apparently a total loss.
