I have some more to add. John Lennon, while primarily a rhythm guitarist, played piano on a lot of his solo songs. I am a Donald Fagen fan; he provided some beautiful piano and keyboard work on Steely Dan's and his solo albums (of course, he also hired a lot of great studio pros to play as well.) Lastly, good old Leon Russell (a fellow Nashville resident who I see at the grocery store occasionally) sang and played piano on his own albums as well as for Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Delaney & Bonnie, et al. Of the musicians listed above, Leon was by far the best pianist (and perhaps the worst singer) of the three.

Not far from my shop is a little Restaurant-Grill that has an absolutely incredible lady pianist/singer.

She has played there for years and years and is teaching on the side. Listening to her you would never understand why she hasn't become famous.

Until you 'see' her.

Not beautiful, not even pretty.

But the most wonderful singer/performer I have ever seen and a person with a heart to match.

May I give "Gill" my vote.

I forgot about Leon Russell. Also a really great record producer. He produced an Album by the great blues singer/guitarist Freddie King which was phenomenal.
