Synopsis

Amazon.com
We've had saxophone quartets, brass bands, bass choirs, and even percussion ensembles, but as the title of a Professor Longhair documentary put it, piano players rarely ever play together. As much a piece of furniture as a musical instrument, pianos are difficult to gather in one spot. Producer/pianist James Williams got four of them together, however, for the delightful album The Key Players by the Contemporary Piano Ensemble. Williams actually gathered five pianists to rotate through the four piano benches: himself, Donald Brown, Harold Mabern, Mulgrew Miller, and Geoff Keezer. --Geoffrey Himes
