0.0Dan-Dean-82552Seattle bassist Dan Dean is no stranger to Keyboard magazine: His sample libraries have won three Key Buy awards and he’s played with piano heroes like Dave Grusin, Bill Mays, Joey DeFrancesco, and scores more. On 251 (think jazz changes) Dan invited four stellar keyboardist buddies into the studio for a fantastic romp through ten standards and a George Duke original that will teach you how to play ballads, swing, and funk with a bassist. Whether you play B-3 (like Larry Goldings on “Georgia”), accordion (like Gil Goldstein on “Lover Man”), funk piano (like George Duke on “It’s On”), or straight-ahead jazz (like Kenny Werner on “Dolphin Dance”) this uplifting album shines an exciting new light on a classic collaboration.
