The Tender Game is a wonderful showcase for jazz great Peterson and animator Hubley
29 December 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

The Tender Game is one of two animated shorts scored by the recently departed Oscar Peterson that Amid at Cartoon Brew showcased as linked from YouTube. John Hubley directed with wife Faith Elliott as editor and Robert Cannon and Emery Hawkins as animators. It's basically a boy-meet-girl story as abstractedly depicted to the strains of the song "Tenderly" as sung by Ella Fitzgerald in the beginning with Peterson and his Trio providing the rest of the instrumental bridge. What wonderful feelings are played on screen as advanced by both the music and the way the characters move to the rhythm! Hubley gives a romantic dream-like vibe throughout with compelling aid from Ms. Fitzgerald and Peterson. Highly recommended for both jazz and animation buffs.
