I guess mine right now would have to be a Canadian going by the name of CaliKokat. This guy seems to be posting videos nearly every day, think he's up to almost 500 by now.

well this thread is taking off like wildfire...i also saw a couple of liberace videos on youtube though that were pretty cool; on one he does a samba, tico tico and on another explains how when he was growing up the big thing was the boogie woogie and then plays one. For some reason liberace always reminded me of bugs bunny.

I really like Darius Goodwin. He has a couple of Dave Grusin arrangements that are just fantastic.

Makin' Whoopie - from the movie "The Fabulous Baker Boys" (a really great movie by the way, with a great jazz soundtrack of original music and covers by Dave Grusin).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhMiM5FHXVE

awesome bluesy version of this song.

Mitch and Abby - from the movie "The Firm". Again a great movie, with a great jazz soundtrack of original music written by Dave Grusin.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5DY7tmhC_E

just beautiful. this song just melts me.

Calbee219, for sure. He started playing at 16, same as me, and he does Final Fantasy music, too, which I also enjoy playing. =D
He's an inspiration, in that it doesn't matter how old you are when you start.

This thread has gotten me to discover youtube. My favorite is one that I was reminded of by chance. Try Time0207. Its Fabrizio Caligaris who I heard (every night)on The Norwegian Dawn (cruise)in February. Why is he my favorite? His style sounded so much like the way my uncle played that it got me back interested in playing the piano again. So I have a lot of catching up to do after a 35 year absense.
Two other things-
If it wouldn't be Frabrizio, I'd agree with Andy007 and say Stuart Jones and Martin Rowberry (sniper22b). They are especially worth a listen to hear the difference between Stuart's funk and boggie contrasted with the relaxation (is that the right term) music that he has recorded.
Wonder about where "knightplayer" came from? I'm one of the folks that has an Alfred Knight piano. When I searched the site, all I could find is that most that posted thought they were over rated or flat out didn't like them. Mine is from 1961 and I love it.

Michel Petrucciani was amazing, tremendous feeling at 1:37 and then the amazing long poly-rythmic stretch starting at 2:01 (he died of a genetic disease at age 37) :

Classically trained, since 4 years old. (There's a video of her playing a Grieg Lyric piece at age 9 that is to die for.) As an adult she had Lazar Berman for a teacher.

Now composes covers for heavy metal music.

She's wonderful and full of passion.

Love Michel Petrucciani. What a lyrical player. That part where he's playing eight note runs in the right hand over triplet comping in the left! Never heard anyone quite do that.

Some great playing here by an early Billy Taylor. Interesting how well he incorporates his left hand in his playing. Creating a counterpoint, reminiscent of Lennie Tristano┬┤s playing I guess.

Among current players, Brad Mehldau uses a lot of left hand melodic counterpoint.

True, you can also hear him more recently "getting away" from conventionally playing the melody in the right and playing chords in the left hand. Instead he will arpeggiate the harmony under the melody. He does this especially on more contemporary, pop oriented tunes that he has done.

Keith Jarretts Solo-Concert from 1984 in Tokyo. His playing is so sensitiv and outstanding. Harmonies are well balanced and devided carefully to both hands. Harmony is not "per se" a fact, it is outcoming of the horizontal lines which are found in both hands. A almost contrapuntal type of playing in his performance you can listen starting at 3:58.

Here is the link to youtube
---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eq0EWNuR1H8

Here I did a transcription of the first 8 bars of his performance just to see how his is moving.

I don't really check out specific artists but rather just the songs I really like and want to play and don't give too much attention to the player.

Though I really like Kyle Landry, his original songs isn't too shabby, and love the improvisations. I don't think ill ever play like that but one can always dream.

I agree about Fabrizio Caligaris - can anyone give me some tips about how to play that chromatic run at 1.09 in Misty?
Maybe you just have to keep practicing it until your fingers bleed...

It's great that he's making his sheet music available too; not many seem to do that, so I'd appreciate any suggestions for others who do so! smile

There are a lot of good ones out there and I may be prejudiced, but I like my teacher's playing.
