you have to to hand it to jalc…  the produtions there are fantastic.  this new year’s eve performance by two of my current favorite pianists is like a turbo-charged piano trio, plus the great jimmy heath (recently deceased, r.i.p.) and nicholas payton thrown in just because new year’s eve at dizzy’s.  with two pianos, i’m always reminded of the salieri line from amadeus that there are simply too many notes (and the first track definitely felt that way). but then, as i always say, too much is not enough, and nothing exceeds like excess.  oh, and speaking of new year… happy lunar new year!  health, luck, and prosperity to all.

the two grand pianos are nestled together opposite each other, cyrus chesnut on the left, benny green on your right
