Cheryl Pyle wrote a lyric to Waltz No. 1, titled Two Reflect As One. The lyric was recorded by vocalist Gloria Cooper and the lead sheet with lyric, also in F minor, is available. For instrumentalists and vocalists both, we've made available a no-vocal, no-melody MP3 version of the track without a solo section.

A forward-leaning yet strongly swinging modern pianist, Cochrane studied with the noted Boston-based piano teacher Madame Margaret Chaloff (mother of Serge Chaloff) and the inimitable Jaki Byard. In a fruitful career, he has performed and/or recorded with saxophonists Michael Brecker, Sonny Fortune, Oliver Lake, David Schnitter and Chico Freeman and trumpeters Clark Terry, Valery Ponomarev, Jack Walrath and Ted Curson; also bassist Eddie Gomez, as well as many others.
