Monk (Straight No Chaser), Cecil Taylor (Unit Structures), Keith Jarret (Koln Concert), Bill Evans (Kind of Blue), Herbie Hancock (Chameleon, Filles De Kilimanjaro), and Oscar Peterson (Diz and Getz) are a few of the pianists (and albums they feature on) in the jazz field that I really enjoy.

hey king, if you like bill evans from that period you should definitely hear "Everybody Digs Bill Evans", Prestige, 1958. "Peace Piece" is my favorite but it's all great!

I'm also big on 'Sunday at the Village Vanguard' and 'Waltz for Debby'. Not just for the piano playing, upright player Scott LaFaro is a giant as well.

Actually he did some nice session work on Kevin Ayers's "Sweet Deceiver" album before he became a household name. I also remember hearing that he auditioned for King Crimson, as a replacement for Greg Lake.

And I guess no one needs to be reminded that "The Lion King" soundtrack is a death-metal masterpiece.

Monk is my favorite, hands down.

Has everyone here heard of HERMANN SZOBEL? Fucking guy is/was amazing. He's an obscure European, was 18 when he recorded his only album in '76 on Arista, then disappeared literally. It was never released on CD. Dave Samuels of ZINY fame plays vibes on it. It's like hearing Monk jamming with Billy Cobham - Spectrum era.
Punch the guys' name in on youtube to hear it, also a very good dude set up a myspace page with info on him and more sound clips. Every Zappa fan needs to hear this guy, no shit.

Yeah, I do agree. She's on 2 of mine : Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 and 3 piano sonatas (Moonlight/Waldstein/Pathetic). Her interpretation of the Waldstein sonata is really amazing.

But my favorite pianist is Georges Cziffra.

He made incredible transcription works and interpretations of classical music pieces. He is also the king on the hardest Liszt piano compositions.

Here are two videos of Cziffra:This guy really has his own style.

So what do you think about him?

There's something against calling Beethoven's 8th piano sonata "Pathetic"...

Have I mentioned Wibi Soerjadi? He sure may be too popularistic but he did great renditions of Saint-Saëns's 2nd and 4th piano concerto.

Yaa I know that most of these titles do not come from Beethoven and were found by the editors or poets:
  • Moonlight: the original title was Quasi Una Fantasia.
  • Waldstein: it is also often called Aurora.
  • Pathetic: the title is not from Beethoven, however some historians said that he possibly admitted it and used it.

There are two Sonata Quasi Una Fantasia's by Beethoven; the other one is nr 13. The actual title of the 8th is Pathetique, I'm not sure if that translates to Pathetic in English.

Anyway I prefer to use opus numbers. I always mix up Pathetique with Appassionata.

You are right it is Pathétique which would rather mean sad or melancholic in English anyway :oops:

if Art Tatum was the best, then how come your favorite is someone who was slightly less great than Tatum?

Thanks for asking Aybe, sometimes you feel a certain way without really thinking "why?” it's good to have to explain yourself. When considering why I feel,” Although Monks my favorite Art Tatum was the greatest" my first thought is it's the music. Although it is easy listening to Tatum to be astonished at his ability, his virtuosity, he is generally interrupting someone else’s composition, in a style of jazz that is not my favorite. With Thelonious it's the music, the use of dissonance combined with unique playing style. I'm not sure how detailed of a response you are looking for so that's my "easy teenage New York version". Music Verses Musician.
By the way AYBE isn't this Ian Underwood's mug on the Mothermania album
