Craig Milverton is firmly established as one of Britain’s Top Jazz Pianists. "A master of whatever he chooses to perform" - Humphrey Lyttleton, "An extravagantly gifted pianist with an unrivalled sense of swing" Jazz CD of the Month - Dave Gelly, The Observer. "The best pianist to come along in Britain in the last 2 decades, and the nearest to the great Oscar Peterson" -Digby Fairweather. Just three of the quotes extolling Craig’s jazz talent. This has been recognised by winning the Jazz Piano Category of The British Jazz Awards in 2010.
In his latest project, 'A Tribute To Oscar Peterson' Craig pays homage to probably the greatest of all Jazz Pianists, and his biggest influence, Oscar Peterson. This show highlights all the great recordings of Oscar from his biggest hit 'Tenderly', to his bestselling Album 'Night Train' and also focuses on his great compositions including ‘The Canadiana Suite’ celebrating his homeland of Canada.
Craig recorded his tribute to Oscar in 2007 and has received top reviews in all the Jazz Press and featured at some big festivals including Brecon, London and Swanage and has performed at many top venues including Ronnie Scott's, Dean St Pizza Express and the Concorde Club. This concert is a must for all Peterson fans and all those people who love Jazz that swings.
Appearing with Craig are three of the most talented musicians on the jazz scene, Dominic Ashworth on guitar, winner of the Jazz Guitar Award in the 2006 British Jazz Awards, Julian Bury on double bass and Nick Millward on drums.
