With pianists George Duke & Kenny Werner, organist Larry Goldings, and pianist/accordionist Gil Goldstein, Seattle bassist Dan Dean brings together some of the top keyboard talents in the world for an intimate set of duo performances, each displaying an abundance of spontaneity and spirited exchanges. With Goldings, the duo explores the bop of "In Walked Bud" to the funk of "I Feel Good." Pianists Kenny Werner & George Duke take on standards such as "Stella By Starlight" and "S'Wonderful," while Gil Goldstein adds accordion to the mix with a look at "Lover Man." With the performer's varied and singular styles there is great textural variety and the emphasis is always on musical conversation with a lot of deep interplay.
