CD Music recording


Two piano giants are finally united in an album they waited half a century to record. Beyond virtuosity,what you hear is the unique complicity and kinship that is the Valdés legacy of both father and son. This celebration--on the eve of Bebo's 90th birthday--arrives devoid of bitterness. That is full of melody, rhythm and love of life. The repertory is performed on two pianos, except for tracks 1 and 8 that Chucho and Bebo respectively perform solo. But for these instances, Chucho can be heard on the left channel and Bebo on the right, corresponding to how they played--face to face--in the recording studio.
