Two by Two, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
After recording duets with five master pianists in early 1995 for Two by Two, Vol. 1, bassist Dave Young brought six more keyboardists into the studio for a follow-up volume later in the same year. The elegant interpretation of Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance" with Ellis Marsalis is taken at a deliberate tempo, showcasing a long solo by the leader.

After recording duets with five master pianists in early 1995 for Two by Two, Vol. 1, bassist Dave Young brought six more keyboardists into the studio for a follow-up volume later in the same year. The elegant interpretation of Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance" with Ellis Marsalis is taken at a deliberate tempo, showcasing a long solo by the leader. There's no mistaking the gospel background of Cyrus Chestnut in the rollicking take of "Make Me a Pallet on the Floor," though Young's lively accompaniment makes it sound like he is steeped in church music as well. The bassist contributed the constantly shifting post-bop vehicle "Bass Blues" for the meeting with Oliver Jones, with whom he has worked on many occasions. Kenny Barron is on hand for the lush treatment of "Loverman." Young alternates between playing arco and pizzicato with Barry Harris in Oscar Pettiford's delightful but infrequently performed "Pendulum at Falcon's Lair." The young Canadian pianist Renee Rosnes is on hand for the playful jazz waltz arrangement of "I'm All Smiles." Fans of these sessions will find an additional track from each of these duo dates on Side by Side, Vol. 3.
