No, Roman's design uses one more VCA per filter  because he's got voltage-controlled resonance too, not because his design does Bandpass as well. If you were happy with no VC resonance, you could use pots for resonance control, and do the design with one 2164. You'd still get the Bandpass output, because it's still a SVF.

Alternatively, you could use a LM13700 for the resonance VCAs for the two filters, although the 2164 VCA's log response is a good fit in this application and helps improve the linearity of the resonance control. Since this is still two chips not one, I don't see much advantage. Probably log pots would work well, though. That would make a very compact circuit.
