HISTORY OF JAZZ PIANO DUOS
Though keyboard duet performances go back historically to chamber music in 18th-piano, more recently they have become particularly popular in jazz. World legends Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Nicholas Economo and Herbie Hancock, to name a few, are recent jazz pianists to have done duo piano concerts and albums.
