No mention of Kenny Kirkland very surprising.

I know he played with Sting and thats taboo for jazz fans but the guy can flatout dominate the keys.

Didn't see the fantastic Earl Hines on the thread either. Obviously channeling some Monk on this one. I love this recording from 64.

When it comes to jazz pianists there's Thelonious Monk and then everyone else.

No offense, Duke.

McCoy Tyner is probably my favourite these days. I'm also a huge fan of Alexander Von Schlippenbach.
