    Greetings, Cherry Blossom

    Not sure if you knew this... but Oscar Peterson's brother, Fred, died of tuberculosis at only 16 years of age. And according to Oscar, Fred was the greatest pianist he'd ever heard. In which case...

    One can only imagine the musical virtuosity and artistic vertical of this young man's talent. What say you?

    Bounty & Blessings to You & Yours,

    Lokman

    I think I do recall reading that somewhere before.

    But, how sad for his family. TB and Polio took a lot of people, Black and White, during those years.


    However, I've heard of similar stories in other areas.

    For example:

    Melvin Franklin (bass singer of The Temptations) had a male relative back in his home-state of Alabama who had a bass voice DEEPER than Melvin's!

    Can you IMAGINE THAT?!
