LARRY CORYELL is one of the acknowledged innovators in Jazz; KENNY DREW, Jr. was recognized as one of the supreme pianists playing the music. �DUALITY� is a fitting addition to their collective legacies. Their selfless, inventive interplay on the recording epitomizes the best in duo playing. Continuing and expanding the grand tradition of Guitar/Piano partnerships demonstrated by Joe Pass/Oscar Peterson and Jim Hall/Bill Evans, Coryell/Drew stretch the genre to heights of new verve and elegance. Each artist contributes three original tunes. Coryell penned the complex burner �Szabodar,� the chamber jazz piece �Oil and Water,� and the guitar-overdubbed concerto �Duality: Nenad�s Sonata.� Drew provided the lilting �Farmer�s Waltz,� the ominous ballad �A Silent War,� and his tribute to a recently departed fellow piano giant, �Goodbye Mr. Jones.� � Jazz composers are represented by Horace Silver�s swinging �Silver�s Serenade,� Charles Mingus� blues �Nostalgia In Times Square� and Bobby Timmons� popular minor opus �Moanin�.� Played in a Latin mode, the standard �The Night Has A Thousand Eyes� completes the set. The two master musicians obviously inspire one another. They manage to sound like a big band at times, playing deftly arranged lines on �Moanin�, a classical duo on Larry�s idiomatic �Oil And Water,� and swinging virtuosos on everything. �DUALITY� is a feast for the head and the heart, for the mind and the soul. Both sublime and accessible, it is a gift from two musical wizards. The CD includes a behind-the-scenes �making of� video, made all the more poignant by the untimely passing of Kenny Drew, Jr. at the age of 56.
