If you like jazz, Art Tatum surely had the fastest fingers out there...

(sound only)

And I recommend Gonzales aka Jason Beck for modern classicalesque compositions, eg.

Do you like jazz? Piano trios, duets and quintets (drums, keyboards, bass, etc.) have some legendary talents. Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, etc. Smooth, classic jazz. Gotta love it.


I have an upcoming gig next Friday for a german Jazz Pianist:
Maria Baptist Trio

You could try your luck with Stravinsky. His piano arrangement for 4 hands of The Rite of Spring (especially Spring Rounds) is pure, classic, dark magic. I can also listen to the Moderato from The 5 fingers (Les qing doigts) for hours (also Stravinsky). Just barely a minute song that goes on forever and ever if you set in on repeat.

If your into other keyboard likes (or any other here are) check out "Alle Menschen Mussen Streben" of Max Reger (the recording with Iver Kleive is particularly good). That piece of music is... in lack of better expression: *ucked up, but truly beautifull if your into that kind of music.

Monk. Yes.

I waited 3 years to say that but you guys beat me to it.

I agree that Art Tatum was a great Jazz pianist. I also love Mary Lou Williams in that category.

Not bad. The opening track there develops slowly and thoughtfully. From the photo of her on the right (yours?) I was expecting a flashy powerhouse, but she moves at her own relaxed pace. Nice.

I haven't met her in person yet, and I'm still collecting ideas of how to transform her music and personality into a representative Album cover...
