I meant "interpreting someone else's composition"

Georges Cziffra - Warming Up
Nowadays anybody can do that with an iPad, but it was pretty impressive at the time.

I really like Wakeman. I know he got his own solo spots in concerts, but in the songs he seemed to be overshadowed a bit by Howe.

Listening to a Wakeman and Anderson gig from 2011 right now, and one can easily tell he (Wakeman) still masters his duties... Amazing.

I have many favorites, but I would like to bring up two. First, Leon Russell. He did beautiful session work for everyone from Sinatra to the Beach Boys, he played on nearly everything in the rock world that was any good in 1971 (well he never played with Frank...).

His country piano playing on the Hank Wilson discs he released in the 90s is wonderful as well.

The other name that needs consideration, for a much greater influence is Ray Charles. In the 1950s he married gospel and the blues together into a new musical language and drove those great songs with his piano. I suggest you listen to Hit the Road Jack, or Hallelujah, I Love Her So. These are simple songs that have definitive piano figures which don't get the credit, because they are almost a part of our DNA.

I've only heard these 2 albums by Hiromi. She can play a bit angularly at times (not that that's bad!), and has a great ear and technique.

She has good company too. David Fiuczynski plays on Time Control and I'm curious about this duet album.
