It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
It is not to say there are not other extremely gifted and great musicians out there. But, the thread was titled OP, so thought that was the main focus. This is a beautiful piece you have posted by Keith Jarrett, a musician I was not familiar with. But, more so now. So, thanks for posting it.
This is quite different then what I would expect from Mr. P., though. For one thing, it doesn't swing. Nor is it supposed to, I suppose. So, it is just WAY different.
Peterson certainly was not the most accurate/precise piano player I have ever heard. There are much better if this were the criteria. But, hard to beat when it comes to a really swinging sound. Just like when Ella Fitzgerald gets passed the MIC from Barbara Streisand, the chandeliers start to swing. Both are extremely gifted singers (IMHO,) but WAY different.
