Canadiana Suite is a 1964 album by Oscar Peterson.
The album was recorded on September 9, 1964 in New York and originally released on the Limelight label.
The remarkable pianist Oscar Peterson had never been thought of that much as a composer, making this set of eight of his compositions a bit of a surprise when it was originally released. Now available on CD, Peterson's tribute to his native Canada includes several noteworthy pieces of which "Hogtown Blues" and "Wheatland" are best known. With his 1964 trio (featuring bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen), Peterson swings hard but often with sensitivity throughout the enjoyable set.
Oscar Peterson – piano
Ray Brown – double bass
Ed Thigpen – drums
