It's maybe odd, but I don't usually like music with singing. There's exceptions of course, but I prefer acoustic instrumental music. I'm fine with scratchy old recordings, and love stride and early jazz (plus the usual roster of great 20th century jazz pianists).

Can anyone suggest some blues piano recordings I might enjoy listening to?

Please step aside. You're standing in your own way.

Hey TW, I wasn't sure whether you wanted some vocals or not so the first one has some (with some good piano background I might add), the other is an instrumental favorite:

With Aunt Hagar's Blues (Art Tatum) you get the best of both stride and blues

If you get the Hal Leonard transcription book


there's a transcription of Aunt Hagar. It's also in one of the John Mehegan books and probably available for free online somewhere.

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for piano recordings. I agree with you, I prefer music without singing. I can listen to almost any instrumental, even Bluegrass, (no offense anyone) until they start singing. Exception for me is a good choir. I think you're the first person I've ever heard say this. thanks!

Funny, in the blues, I get burnt out on instrumentals and prefer all them 7's to support a really good vocal performance. T' each 'is own as it suits 'im.
