Two-piano studio recording.

Double Trio Always
In Double Trio Always and Double Trio Live 2015, Stephanie and Paolo present their four-hands duo with a rhythm section. These albums feature Stephanie and Paolo's concept of the "Double Trio," where they play four-hands on one piano with the rhythm section, and also leave room for each other to play alone with the trio. Even if the latter formation can't be considered four-hands piano playing in the traditional sense, the two pianists decided to use this approach quite often because it produces a distinctive musical result, unlike that of the standard jazz piano trio with one pianist, mainly due to the continuous juxtaposition of two styles of improvisation.
