Andy LaVerne is featured playing two Yamaha grand pianos on this session, though it was not your typical overdub; it was essentially done live with LaVerne playing first on one instrument equipped with a disklavier (essentially a computer that records all the nuances of what's played) and accompanying the first performance live on a second piano, enabling better interaction. LaVerne's hypnotic "Pair Of Chairs" introduces the concept with success, while Bill Evans' little known "Orbit" is given a Brazilian flavor. "Maiden Voyage" works particularly well with two pianos, which would be very difficult to pull off as a solo; then in Chick Corea's "Spain" LaVerne makes use of the full range of both keyboards combined for a richly textured arrangement. This is a very interesting experiment worth acquiring by fans of duo piano. ~ Ken Dryden
