In the history of jazz, the piano has always played an important role and was a major force in the development of different styles. Stretching over more than seven octaves, a piano's 88 black and white keys offer a wider range of sound than any other instrument and give musicians almost endless harmonical possibilities, practically making the piano a small orchestra on its own.

These 88 keys have inspired countless musicians, from ragtime compositions and rousing boogie-woogie tunes to the swinging improvisations of modern artists. From Scott Joplin and Jelly Roll Morton, from Earl Hines and Teddy Wilson, Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck to Lennie Tristano and McCoy Tyner - the list of great names is long.

Black & White is a tribute to these and other outstanding musicians who created a unique and distinctive style on the piano.

Includes four CDs featuring the most popular musical selections of these noted jazz pianists across various styles of jazz.
