Oscar Peterson's widow files copyright lawsuit
NEW YORK (AP) - The widow of jazz pianist Oscar Peterson has filed a $1 million lawsuit against singer Hilary Kole for copyright infringement.
Kelly Peterson filed the suit in Manhattan federal court this week.
She claims Kole gave copies of four tracks she recorded with the pianist to an Internet radio program and that the radio program played at least one of the tunes.
The Daily News ( http://nydn.us/XR0uWd) reports the recordings were made in 2006 at the behest of Peterson's record producer and have never been released.
Peterson died in 2007. He was celebrated for such American standards as "Our Love is Here to Stay" and "My Romance."
Kole has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and frequently collaborated with Peterson.
A message was left for her manager.
