Been exploring music and have always liked jazz. These three guys have made me want to learn!

1st is Tigran Hamasyan all his albums are amazing! My best find of the year. Here is a taste https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psjWrGkAil4

Next is the pianist who plays with Oliver Nelson specifically the song Patterns from Sound Pieces

I love it when I hear things and think to myself how the F#$k does someone come up with this? Im blown away and left with euphoria in my body. If anyone knows who the pianist is please tell. The piano solo starts at 3:35. Here is the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbKM1nb888w&list=FLmMtmydI_FrH7OSik5Id3TA&index=4

Last is Walter Bishop, Jr. because of this video right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LgE6M-ZCbQ&index=5&list=FLmMtmydI_FrH7OSik5Id3TA the song he plays at 3:40. I wish he could have taught me keys. But oh well learning by myself will do.

Just wanted to show everyone some new music.
Like I said iv just started listening to Jazz so post your favorite Jazz artists and add anything elts you want!

Victor Feldman, british pianist who also played vibes. He had a short stint with Miles Davis in the 60s but went into the studio. He's on some Steely Dan records, I think.
