Legendary jazz pianist and composer Oscar Peterson has died at the age of 82, friends said Monday, sounding the final note for one of the most celebrated musical careers of the 20th century. The Canadian, who reportedly died of kidney failure late Sunday, played with all the greats during his six decades in the business with a versatile style that ranged from boogie-woogie to stride to bebop. Jazz musician Oliver Jones bemoaned the "terrible, terrible loss" of his long-time friend. "But I'm very happy that he died the way that he wanted to, at home, with his family around him," he told CBC television.
