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.


Peter Boelke started his career as a journalist in Berlin. Later he moved to Hamburg where he worked for the famous German news magazine DER SPIEGEL. For nearly 30 years he worked as a member and later as the chief of the magazine's economics department. From there, the passionate jazz enthusiast went on to write on his favorite subject for several well-known music magazines, meeting numerous jazz musicians along the way, including Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Tony Scott, Dave Brubeck, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Herbie Hancock, and Wynton Marsalis.
