This album brings together two great American jazz pianists, Dave McKenna and Hall Overton, for a one-off session of piano jazz, released in 1960.
Swing pianist McKenna was famous for his powerful left hand approach that often seemed to eliminate the need for a bass player. Overton worked in both classical and jazz as both a composer and pianist, recording with such jazz greats as Stan Getz and Jimmy Raney. He is perhaps best known for his orchestrations of Thelonius Monk’s piano solos.
