  • Jazz (and not only) piano players

    For the past few weeks I must admit I’ve been listening mostly to piano players. I just needed some special music not to distract my attention (cuz i was preparing for my uinversity exams) but would make me think faster and deeper;)) The fact is reflected in my overall top: 12 out of 50 top artists overall are pianists. Some of them are more jazzy, some less, still everyone’s go something that makes him worth listening to. So here’s my list of favorite piano performers. I decided not to write about legendary Bill Evans simply because he’s a legend and everything’s already written about him. And you won’t find here Monty Alexander, which is also in my Overall chart and I love him, but… simply won’t;)

    1.Mr power – Jason Moran
    I got to know him only a few weeks ago but was momentarily blown away by the might and force of his music. He’s just released a new album, “Same mother” but I want especially to mark his gorgeous Planet Rock, which easily can represent the whole definition of the phrase *modern jazz*.
