Ferrante & Teicher were masters on the keyboards. These two excellent musicians while studying music at Julliard. They met in 1930 at the school, they began performing together while still in school. After graduation both joined the Julliard faculty.

This duo also experimented with prepared pianos, adding paper, sticks, rubber, wood blocks, metal bars, chains, glass, mallets, and other found objects to piano string beds. In this way they were able to produce a variety of bizarre sounds that sometimes resembled percussion instruments, and at other times resulted in special effects that sounded as if they were electronically synthesized.

Ferrante and Teicher ceased performing in 1989 and retired to Longboat Key and Siesta Key, respectively, close to each other on the west coast of Florida. They continued to play together occasionally at a local piano store.

During their career in the 1950's they released 20 albums, in the 60's they released 40 albums, in the 70's 27 albums were released, in the 80's 4, in the 90's 4 and in the 2000's they released six more.

This record was a promotional copy for radio stations so it had the same song on both sides. This record is in very good condition but on one side of the label are two stickers from the radio station they gave it to.
