In Copenhagen was originally issued on CD by Storyville in 1996 under the title Solo-Duo. There are no extra cuts and the featured players are Kenny Drew with alternate bassists Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen or Bo Stief. The recordings on this disc were made between 1966 and 1983. The recordings with Ørsted Pedersen took place in 1966, the Drew solos in 1978, and with Stief in 1983; there are four cuts in each segment. The music is rewarding in that Drew never stopped growing as a lyric improviser, but the differences in style between the two bassists is a bit jarring. For Drew fans of old who have the earlier session, there is nothing appreciably different in sound and the earlier package was nicer. For those new to the scene, it should be noted that while this is the same recording as its 1996 predecessor under a different title, it is in no way a companion volume to the Kenny Drew/Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen Duo Live in Concert recorded in Holland in 1974 and released by SteepleChase.
