He was 36 and lived in Manhattan. The cause was a pulmonary infection, said a representative of his French record company, Francis Dreyfus Music. Petrucciani was a national hero in France, and Male feet records were best sellers in Europe. The French President, Jacques Chirac, was among the many who paid tribute to him yesterday, praising his ability to ''renew jazz, giving himself up to his art with passion, courage and musical genius. The career of Mr. Petrucciani, who was considered one of Midget jazz pianist great romantics of the jazz piano, flourished in spite of a severe physical disability. The pianist was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as ''glass bones,'' a disease that stunted his growth he was only three Midget jazz pianist tall Midget jazz pianist weighed barely 50 pounds and weakened his bones. Petrucciani had to be carried onto the stage, and he used a special attachment to work the sustaining pedal of the piano. The ailment didn't affect his hands, however, and he played with a seemingly inexhaustible vigor and enthusiasm. Petrucciani was born Midget jazz pianist Italian parents in Montpellier, France. His family was musical, and as Midget jazz pianist child he played the drums in a band with his father, Tony, a guitarist, and his brother Louis, a bassist. After studying classical music for eight years, he turned to jazz full time because he loved to improvise and wanted to Midget jazz pianist his own music.

Michel Petrucciani, Romantic Of Jazz Piano, Is Dead at 36

After a visit to New York he toured France in a duo with the saxophonist Lee Konitz, with whom he recorded an album of duets. While in California inMr. Petrucciani was discovered by the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, who made him a member of his quartet.

They toured Europe and recorded an album, ''Montreux ' Nobody can make a favorite list for someone else. If you made this click to see more top there would still be people with their favorites not on it. You explained that in the beginning so there should be no complaining. I did pick up a few names that I will make an effort to find for my own listening pleasure. Johnny Costa is comparable to Art Tatum.

My list: Meade Lux Lewis 2. Pete Johnson 3. Albert Ammons 4. Midget jazz pianist Yancey 5. Mary Midget jazz pianist Williams 6. Freddie Slack 7. Alan Toussant 8. Pinetop Smith 9. Hazel Scott Art Hodes. Who conducted this survey?

A bunch of rock musicians????? You made an attempt that is insurmountalble for Midget jazz pianist have left an indubitable mark on jazz from Tatum to Evans to Brubeck to Jamal………but Chick……come on. No Kenny Barron but you have that crackpot Keith Jarrett on this list? As with all harmonic instruments and probably even melodic ones there are so many elements in playing them. Greatest how; for what? There are Midget jazz pianist few names missing on your list, such as Vince Guaraldi, Russ Freeman, Dudley Moore, Egberto Gismonti, Claude Bolling; each of these have Midget jazz pianist talents that deserve mention.

Midget jazz pianist short, I suggest you might devise a poll based on categories — such as as harmonic creativity, melodic creativity, originality, interpretation, composition and form building, playing technique, influence on other musicians etc etc. I love Monk, but respectfully disagree about placing him at 2. If there is one piano player who, in my opinion, comes out tops in all categories it has to be the Midget jazz pianist Bill Evans.

First of all, there is a severe under-representation of brilliant, young pianists: And from the older but still highly active! The problem with lists like this is that they draw a stagnant picture of a very vibrant art. Plenty more good jazzpianists! I give you two european pianists: Art Tatum definitely 1.

Haifa fuck Watch Video Fucking Handsome. And no Billy Taylor? Anyway, the list is an interesting exercise because it makes one think. Pianists are musicians and musicians are artists and not marathon runners, tennis players or race car drivers. Second, nobody remembers Mel Powell and Johnny Guarnieri? The list should be extended to at least 88 names without ranking them. Pianists as any other professional musician are certainly competing with their art yet not for being ranked but for getting loved, respected, and paid well for their performances! Oscar Peterson number 2 after Art Tatum. I am glad that The Count and the Duke are in the top. It seems that they get forgotten as pianists Piano has so many fantastic players that for me I have a huge amount of favorites. Any list without Billy Taylor has no credibility. To me, Keith Jarrett is very overrated. Myra Melford is missing, and yes Diana Krall belongs there. Mulgrew Miller needs to be in there definitively. Fred Hersch is missing. We are all very lucky and should be grateful for so much great music!!! A beautiful filigree touch, consistent and even fingering, and excellent pedalling Swings effortlessly at any tempo, never thumps the instrument, as do inferior pianists. Disappointing to see that no one has mentioned Satoko Fujii so far. I agree with the many serious ommissions mentioned by others. First and foremost, Phineas Newborn Jr. When Memphis musicians and friends of Newborn first heard players like Bud Powell, they were not impressed because anything Bud did, Newborn could do more easily. I also am shocked that there are no women on this list. Any of these women in my opinion were superior to several names on this list: Also some pianists from outside the U. Gonzalo Rubalcaba unbelievable chops and ideas , Eldar Djangirov I heard and hung out with him when he was still in his teens—made me want to quit playing , Tete Montoliu, Bobby Enriquez amazing Filipino pianist not mentioned once in this thread , Adam Makowicz from Poland—I also saw him live and hung out with him. Not mentioned by anyone in this thread , Marian Petrescu unbelievable , Michel Camilo. How to compare Oscar Peterson and Thelonious Monk?! It is actually not a bad list. Oscar Peterson is much too high for my taste. There is an alternative top list over at Ranker. I think it was please some of you and it includes 3 females in the top That list is voted on by average joes and jills. Johnson made the lst, although they should both be much higher. Tough to include Joplin, who, although he was a great composer, and, arguably the first , left no recordings, save for his no doubt edited piano roll of Maple Leaf Rag. As one of the great Monk fans of all-time, owning every single one of his recordings okay not the very latest film music release yet, but until then having an all-Monk ensemble in college that I arranged 35 of his comps for, and my primary influence as a jazz pianist, to rank him 2 jazz pianist is crazy. If you take into account his composing and his position as a pioneer of bebop he should certainly be near the top but as pianist solely, not 2, really not Top As far a people who were left off the list Jessica WIlliams another Monk aficionado deserves a serious consideration. Anyone else own the album Mingus Plays Piano? Very under-appreciated album. You should be ashamed! Dave Grusiin and Bob James? As already pointed out by other folks here, there a few important omissions: You missed Dave Zoller. One of the true greats. Finishing work on a Theloneous Monk anniversary album. He is amazing! Perhaps this list should have gone with 88, still matching the number of keys. Too many great ones left off, as mentioned in the comments. If you needed to make some room in the 36 for the glaring omissions, conisder removing Shearing, Mays, Grusin and James. If in all this beautiful list there was no place for lennie tristano who wrote this list should do some homework. The ranking is ridiculous Monk for 2nd etc… IMO. These are all all great pianists but there are probably many we never heard of and some who were excluded. No females? BTW, no Denny Zeitlin? The Modern Jazz Quartet got me and countless others into modern jazz, as opposed to trad and Dixieland. Where the hell is John Lewis? How could you do this! For shame. Bobby Enriquez is my favorite! Fast, fast, fast! Others not mentioned: Aw, man. Have you got no heart? No Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson? Magicians of the boogie woogie. Bringers of joy. He gave and still gives me the largest goose bumps. Love him. Way overrated: Jessica Williams is one of the most under appreciated jazz pianists today. She has performed with other amazing musicians for years, and I only recently discovered her. She is a creative heart and soul jazz pianist. There is no best jazz pianists in this world but one fucking dangerous fucking idiot who got the pretension to class them. Lets not argue about who is missing it is impossible to have all names available, but in real terms in matters not a hoot because Bud Powell and Monk are there. Barry Harris, should be in the top twenty. John Hicks could really burn the keys, and Brother Newborn, was on par with the great Oscar Peterson. This is a sorry list of the greatest jazz pianist. Phineas Newborn is not here. This is total crap. This is posted by some Johnny come Lately. Jason Draper. Take another look and let us know what you think! No armenian piano player either. Tigran Hamasyan is by far one of the best piano players in the world. This is a good summary of jazz pianists. But ranking them is ridiculous. They all have their own style. If you are ranking, what are your criteria? If you have no criteria, what is the point. I might come up with a different list. So would you. I think the list captured most of the major players, missed a few that I would have included — McPartland and Newborn to name a couple — and some of the rankings are idiosyncratic. So, withal my disagreements, cool list. The omission of Marian McPartland is criminal. I do like your top 4 and was pleasantly surprised by it. He played with many of the jazz bands in the 30s and 40s Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey to name a few, and he had his own radio show. Here is just a sampling of his work and there is much more on youtube. His name is Ryo Fukui. Damn it! Hiromi Uehara! A must! And i happen to agree. Me too.

Had people cheering and crying at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Regarding his personal life, he had five significant relationships: With Marie-Laure he fathered a son, Alexandre, who inherited his condition. He also had a stepson named Rachid Roperch. In the late s, Petrucciani's lifestyle became increasingly taxing. He was performing over times per year, and in , the year before he died, he performed times. He became too weak to use crutches and had to resort to a wheelchair. His final manager said, "He was working too much — not only recording and doing concerts, but he was always on television, and he was always doing interviews. He got himself overworked, and you could see it. He pushed too much. Petrucciani died from a pulmonary infection a week after his 36th birthday. On 12 February , the French music channel Mezzo broadcast a special event paying homage to Petrucciani on the 10th anniversary of his death. The first two American albums featuring Petrucciani were produced by Gabreal Franklin. These were among the first albums to use digital recording technology, on Mitsubishi X80 recorders, so early on that the only manuals available were in Japanese; but Franklin and Tom Arrison managed to get them to function by trial and error. Osteogenesis imperfecta seemed to contribute greatly both to Petrucciani's personality and his playing style. By his own account, he was in almost constant physical pain. He said, "I love humor, I love to laugh, I love jokes, I love silliness, I love that, I think it's great, I think laughter is worth a whole lot of medicine. Though he often exhibited arrogance and even womanizing tendencies in his adolescent years, the defining characteristic of Petrucciani was his confidence. Michael Zwerin recalled one example: It was kind of hot. And Michel said, 'anybody know " Giant Steps? So there was this great silence. And Michel said, "Well, I do! That to me is Michel—'Well, I do! Petrucciani also appeared to have a quirky side. In a Mezzo documentary, he can be heard saying in a humorous voice, "I am very short! We'd walk into a restaurant, and he'd chomp. During his last years in New York, it seemed Michel's general attitude of carelessness was magnified. He said to his manager, "I want to have at least five women at once, I want to make a million dollars in one night. I won't die because of my handicap. It has nothing to do with that. What is known for certain is that Petrucciani was fiercely determined to take all the joy and satisfaction from life that he could. It's like driving a car, waiting for an accident. That's no way to drive a car. If you have an accident, you have an accident— c'est la vie. Just one week before he died of a pulmonary infection, he was up all night celebrating the new year with his friends. Stylistically, Petrucciani is most frequently compared to Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett for his lyricism and Oscar Peterson for his virtuosity. His playing was often quite dramatic; critics accuse him of over-indulgence and cheap showmanship; sometimes dismiss his music as being too accessible. Petrucciani was loose and playful in a rhythm section, and gave attention to a strong articulation of the melody. He sometimes paused at the peaks of his solo lines before descending again, as if in appreciation of his idea. Michel distinguished himself most obviously from his primary inspiration in that he lacked Bill Evans's cerebral approach to the piano. Petrucciani's interest was primarily in simply playing; he spent little time reharmonizing or arranging. Michel's unbridled love of the piano in no way entailed artistic carelessness. Indeed, he described the piano as literally taking him to his grave. Wayne Shorter summed up Michel Petrucciani's essential character and style in this quote:. View all New York Times newsletters. Moving to Paris, he recorded his first album at 17, and he was appearing regularly at European jazz festivals while still a teen-ager. After a visit to New York he toured France in a duo with the saxophonist Lee Konitz, with whom he recorded an album of duets. While in California in , Mr. Petrucciani was discovered by the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, who made him a member of his quartet. They toured Europe and recorded an album, ''Montreux ' In he was made a knight of the Legion of Honor in Paris. For all the comparisons to Bill Evans, Mr. Petrucciani had found his own style, which was more aggressive, fuller and sunnier than that of his idol and incorporated secondary influences as disparate as McCoy Tyner and Debussy. A marriage to Gilda Butta, a pianist, ended in divorce. He is survived by his companion, Isabelle, his publicist said, and by a son, Alexandre, and a stepson, Rachid Roperch, both of Paris, from a previous relationship. At the time of his death, he was hoping to set up an international jazz school in France. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles..

I would not put Monk at 2. Also, McCoy should be higher ranking than 6. Maybe swap with Monk… But, still a pretty good list of all the greats I know of.

Thank you! Of course then there is Erroll Garner. Downgraded by some because he was accepted by the unwashed masse and not given to pontification about the very real profound nature of jazz, he is hardly to blame that playing piano came so effortlessly to him or that he always believed audiences should be Midget jazz pianist.

Hell, he was playing the most complex chords and rhythmns long check this out self-described experts got around to giving them names. Sometimes I think Garner was not human. He did not have to rely on playing set riffs and pretending it was improvisation. He merely heard a song in his head and made up the new melody Midget jazz pianist that tune alone. He was completely ambidextrous and playing three against fours etc a horror to most human pianists was like taking candy from a baby to him.

He swung like no other. Sure some of the more obvious and elememtary things he did on piano could be imitated by lesser pianists. Taken as a wholehowever, I doub t there has ever been Midget jazz pianist spontaneously creative a Midget jazz pianist as Erroll Garner. Some scientists claim if you put a monkey at a typewriter and gave himyears or so, he would eventually write MacBeth or Romeo and Juliet. Probably top ten. There were better pure piano players. But Art definitely deserves to be number one.

Lists such as these are never definitive but are made to be debated and argued; to think of them in any other way is pointless. Ok, you gave us a Braxton and Threadgill set. Another vote for Al Haig. My top 14 jazz pianists in alphabetical order, based on 60 years of listening: Have never really understood the Art Tatum Midget jazz pianist. A list like this Midget jazz pianist never going to please anyone. A brilliant musician like Marian McPartland being left off is inexcusable.

And no Billy Midget jazz pianist Anyway, the list is an interesting exercise because it makes one think. Pianists are musicians and musicians are artists and not marathon runners, tennis players or race car drivers. Second, nobody remembers Mel Powell Midget jazz pianist Johnny Guarnieri?

Midget jazz pianist

The list should be extended to at least 88 names without ranking them. Pianists as any other professional musician are certainly competing with their art yet not for being ranked but for getting loved, respected, and paid well for their performances!

And Scott Joplin on the list? Being an Old Cool Cat, I think that it is difficult to choose the top 50 let alone 36! Also worth a mention was Joshua Riffkin playing Scott Joplin. Diana Kroll mentioned by others continues to grow in stature, and should make the top Old hands playing very sweet music.. Jessica Williams is not well known by most jazz lovers though she has released dozens of excellent CDs: She is much admired by jazz pianists and the few jazz radio stations that still exist e. I think she should have made the list. No one has a timeless list of The Greatest. For instance we could compile a list of the best percussive players the list would completely change — if you get my drift. Alan Broadbent, Aaron Diehl, Hiromi, there are so many out there. A list of the ten greats certainly would include Tatum, Evans, Bud Powell. Shearing, Oscar, Michele Le Grand for the few of us who have heard him live. Bill Charlap deserves recognition. Monk is in the Pantheon, not for his playing, but for the totality that he brings to the genre. They surely must be up there with the best. Brubeck was one of the most innovative pianists of his time. Nat king Cole was a jazz pianist before he became a singer. So please give credit where credit is due. I think there are two important ones missing. First, Lennie Tristano had a bigger influence on jazz piano than most people think about. Tristano contributed some extremely interesting rhythmic perspectives. Secondly, Clare Fischer had a huge influence, and no one as far as I could see has mentioned him. Herbie Hancock, several times during interviews, has given Clare credit for a significant part of his harmonic knowledge. And he used all that harmonic knowledge in his playing. And the list has 36 pianists because there are 36 black keys on the piano? Wow, Bill Evans before Oscar Peterson. Certainly Fats Waller should have been further up the list, and what about James P. How Nat King Cole was left out boggles the mind, he was only crucial in developing the Jazz trio, a format that made Bill Evans and so many others so popular. Bill Evans is the greatest of all jazzpinaist. Oscar Petersson as you mentionedmissused his tecnical ability. Bill evans had an nusicality creativity and a deep the is unmatched by any player. His beautifully sound and inovativ chord and sofisticated rythm was outstanding. He manged to allways play with such an high level despite his drug problem. He was a genious that contributed to the music as the great classical composers. Lenny Tristano? Oh, I know. Lenny Tristano! How about Lenny Tristano? Or Dave McKenna. Don Shirley? Not sure what category he goes in. Nat King Cole was marvelous. And now heresy time. Second to none. But his playing is mechanical and soulless. After hearing a few songs I just want to move on to someone with with some heart in their playing. The top 10 is MINT………. McPartland because apart from her undoubted talent she was very gracious when I spoke to her between sets at the Hickory House. At 88 yrs I have heard most of the musicians on the various lists. By the way nobody has mentioned George Zack, his contribution to Muggsies Someday Sweetheart and others really pleased me. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone hears beautiful music as it appeals to their ear. This amazing musician has got to be the most overlooked jazz pianist of all time! Agree with many comments,especially Marion MacPartland. And did I miss Dr Billy Taylor? What about George Gershwin? And Nat Cole? The list goes on ,doesnt it? Between Chucho and Art Tatum a toss up as I would have included John Lewis and everybody has their own list but this is YOUR list so there should be no criticism at all. Nobody can make a favorite list for someone else. If you made this list top there would still be people with their favorites not on it. You explained that in the beginning so there should be no complaining. I did pick up a few names that I will make an effort to find for my own listening pleasure. Johnny Costa is comparable to Art Tatum. My list: Meade Lux Lewis 2. Pete Johnson 3. Albert Ammons 4. Jimmy Yancey 5. Mary Lou Williams 6. Freddie Slack 7. Alan Toussant 8. Pinetop Smith 9. Hazel Scott Art Hodes. Who conducted this survey? A bunch of rock musicians????? You made an attempt that is insurmountalble for each have left an indubitable mark on jazz from Tatum to Evans to Brubeck to Jamal………but Chick……come on. No Kenny Barron but you have that crackpot Keith Jarrett on this list? As with all harmonic instruments and probably even melodic ones there are so many elements in playing them. Greatest how; for what? There are a few names missing on your list, such as Vince Guaraldi, Russ Freeman, Dudley Moore, Egberto Gismonti, Claude Bolling; each of these have special talents that deserve mention. In short, I suggest you might devise a poll based on categories — such as as harmonic creativity, melodic creativity, originality, interpretation, composition and form building, playing technique, influence on other musicians etc etc. I love Monk, but respectfully disagree about placing him at 2. If there is one piano player who, in my opinion, comes out tops in all categories it has to be the astounding Bill Evans. First of all, there is a severe under-representation of brilliant, young pianists: And from the older but still highly active! The problem with lists like this is that they draw a stagnant picture of a very vibrant art. Plenty more good jazzpianists! I give you two european pianists: Art Tatum definitely 1. I would not put Monk at 2. Also, McCoy should be higher ranking than 6. Maybe swap with Monk… But, still a pretty good list of all the greats I know of. Thank you! Of course then there is Erroll Garner. Downgraded by some because he was accepted by the unwashed masse and not given to pontification about the very real profound nature of jazz, he is hardly to blame that playing piano came so effortlessly to him or that he always believed audiences should be entertained. Hell, he was playing the most complex chords and rhythmns long before self-described experts got around to giving them names. Sometimes I think Garner was not human. He did not have to rely on playing set riffs and pretending it was improvisation. He merely heard a song in his head and made up the new melody using that tune alone. He was completely ambidextrous and playing three against fours etc a horror to most human pianists was like taking candy from a baby to him. He swung like no other. Sure some of the more obvious and elememtary things he did on piano could be imitated by lesser pianists. Taken as a whole , however, I doub t there has ever been as spontaneously creative a pianist as Erroll Garner. Some scientists claim if you put a monkey at a typewriter and gave him , years or so, he would eventually write MacBeth or Romeo and Juliet. Probably top ten. There were better pure piano players. But Art definitely deserves to be number one. Lists such as these are never definitive but are made to be debated and argued; to think of them in any other way is pointless. Ok, you gave us a Braxton and Threadgill set.. Another vote for Al Haig. My top 14 jazz pianists in alphabetical order, based on 60 years of listening: Have never really understood the Art Tatum worship. A list like this is never going to please anyone. A brilliant musician like Marian McPartland being left off is inexcusable. And no Billy Taylor? Anyway, the list is an interesting exercise because it makes one think. Pianists are musicians and musicians are artists and not marathon runners, tennis players or race car drivers. Second, nobody remembers Mel Powell and Johnny Guarnieri? The list should be extended to at least 88 names without ranking them. Pianists as any other professional musician are certainly competing with their art yet not for being ranked but for getting loved, respected, and paid well for their performances! Oscar Peterson number 2 after Art Tatum. I am glad that The Count and the Duke are in the top. It seems that they get forgotten as pianists Piano has so many fantastic players that for me I have a huge amount of favorites. Any list without Billy Taylor has no credibility. To me, Keith Jarrett is very overrated. Myra Melford is missing, and yes Diana Krall belongs there. Mulgrew Miller needs to be in there definitively. Fred Hersch is missing. We are all very lucky and should be grateful for so much great music!!! A beautiful filigree touch, consistent and even fingering, and excellent pedalling Swings effortlessly at any tempo, never thumps the instrument, as do inferior pianists. Disappointing to see that no one has mentioned Satoko Fujii so far. I agree with the many serious ommissions mentioned by others. First and foremost, Phineas Newborn Jr. When Memphis musicians and friends of Newborn first heard players like Bud Powell, they were not impressed because anything Bud did, Newborn could do more easily. I also am shocked that there are no women on this list. Any of these women in my opinion were superior to several names on this list: Also some pianists from outside the U. Gonzalo Rubalcaba unbelievable chops and ideas , Eldar Djangirov I heard and hung out with him when he was still in his teens—made me want to quit playing , Tete Montoliu, Bobby Enriquez amazing Filipino pianist not mentioned once in this thread , Adam Makowicz from Poland—I also saw him live and hung out with him. Not mentioned by anyone in this thread , Marian Petrescu unbelievable , Michel Camilo. How to compare Oscar Peterson and Thelonious Monk?! It is actually not a bad list. Oscar Peterson is much too high for my taste. There is an alternative top list over at Ranker. I think it was please some of you and it includes 3 females in the top That list is voted on by average joes and jills. Johnson made the lst, although they should both be much higher. Tough to include Joplin, who, although he was a great composer, and, arguably the first , left no recordings, save for his no doubt edited piano roll of Maple Leaf Rag. As one of the great Monk fans of all-time, owning every single one of his recordings okay not the very latest film music release yet, but until then having an all-Monk ensemble in college that I arranged 35 of his comps for, and my primary influence as a jazz pianist, to rank him 2 jazz pianist is crazy. If you take into account his composing and his position as a pioneer of bebop he should certainly be near the top but as pianist solely, not 2, really not Top As far a people who were left off the list Jessica WIlliams another Monk aficionado deserves a serious consideration. Anyone else own the album Mingus Plays Piano? Very under-appreciated album. You should be ashamed! Dave Grusiin and Bob James? As already pointed out by other folks here, there a few important omissions: You missed Dave Zoller. One of the true greats. Finishing work on a Theloneous Monk anniversary album. He is amazing! Perhaps this list should have gone with 88, still matching the number of keys. Too many great ones left off, as mentioned in the comments. If you needed to make some room in the 36 for the glaring omissions, conisder removing Shearing, Mays, Grusin and James. If in all this beautiful list there was no place for lennie tristano who wrote this list should do some homework. The ranking is ridiculous Monk for 2nd etc… IMO. These are all all great pianists but there are probably many we never heard of and some who were excluded. No females? BTW, no Denny Zeitlin? The Modern Jazz Quartet got me and countless others into modern jazz, as opposed to trad and Dixieland. Where the hell is John Lewis? How could you do this! For shame. Bobby Enriquez is my favorite! Fast, fast, fast! Others not mentioned: Aw, man. Have you got no heart? No Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson? Magicians of the boogie woogie. Bringers of joy. He gave and still gives me the largest goose bumps. Love him. Way overrated: Jessica Williams is one of the most under appreciated jazz pianists today. She has performed with other amazing musicians for years, and I only recently discovered her. She is a creative heart and soul jazz pianist. There is no best jazz pianists in this world but one fucking dangerous fucking idiot who got the pretension to class them. Lets not argue about who is missing it is impossible to have all names available, but in real terms in matters not a hoot because Bud Powell and Monk are there. Barry Harris, should be in the top twenty. John Hicks could really burn the keys, and Brother Newborn, was on par with the great Oscar Peterson. This is a sorry list of the greatest jazz pianist. Phineas Newborn is not here. This is total crap. This is posted by some Johnny come Lately. Jason Draper. Take another look and let us know what you think! No armenian piano player either. Tigran Hamasyan is by far one of the best piano players in the world. This is a good summary of jazz pianists. But ranking them is ridiculous. They all have their own style. If you are ranking, what are your criteria? If you have no criteria, what is the point. I might come up with a different list. So would you. I think the list captured most of the major players, missed a few that I would have included — McPartland and Newborn to name a couple — and some of the rankings are idiosyncratic. So, withal my disagreements, cool list. The omission of Marian McPartland is criminal. I do like your top 4 and was pleasantly surprised by it. He played with many of the jazz bands in the 30s and 40s Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey to name a few, and he had his own radio show. Here is just a sampling of his work and there is much more on youtube. His name is Ryo Fukui. Damn it! Hiromi Uehara! A must! And i happen to agree. Me too.

Dan Waldis June 30, at Andrew Petersen October 23, at 2: I really loved doing that, and afterwards getting on stage with a group again and playing with other people was a piece of cake! Regarding his personal life, he had five significant relationships: With Marie-Laure he fathered a son, Alexandre, who inherited his condition. He also had a stepson named Rachid Roperch. In the late s, Petrucciani's lifestyle became increasingly taxing. He was performing over times per year, and in , the year before he died, he performed times. He became too weak to use crutches and had to resort to a wheelchair. His final manager said, "He was working too much — not only recording and doing concerts, but he was always on television, and he was always doing interviews. He got himself overworked, and you could see it. He pushed too much. Petrucciani died from a pulmonary infection a week after his 36th birthday. On 12 February , the French music channel Mezzo broadcast a special event paying homage to Petrucciani on the 10th anniversary of his death. The first two American albums featuring Petrucciani were produced by Gabreal Franklin. These were among the first albums to use digital recording technology, on Mitsubishi X80 recorders, so early on that the only manuals available were in Japanese; but Franklin and Tom Arrison managed to get them to function by trial and error. Osteogenesis imperfecta seemed to contribute greatly both to Petrucciani's personality and his playing style. By his own account, he was in almost constant physical pain. He said, "I love humor, I love to laugh, I love jokes, I love silliness, I love that, I think it's great, I think laughter is worth a whole lot of medicine. Though he often exhibited arrogance and even womanizing tendencies in his adolescent years, the defining characteristic of Petrucciani was his confidence. Michael Zwerin recalled one example: It was kind of hot. And Michel said, 'anybody know " Giant Steps? So there was this great silence. And Michel said, "Well, I do! That to me is Michel—'Well, I do! Petrucciani also appeared to have a quirky side. In a Mezzo documentary, he can be heard saying in a humorous voice, "I am very short! We'd walk into a restaurant, and he'd chomp. During his last years in New York, it seemed Michel's general attitude of carelessness was magnified. He said to his manager, "I want to have at least five women at once, I want to make a million dollars in one night. I won't die because of my handicap. It has nothing to do with that. What is known for certain is that Petrucciani was fiercely determined to take all the joy and satisfaction from life that he could. It's like driving a car, waiting for an accident. That's no way to drive a car. If you have an accident, you have an accident— c'est la vie. Just one week before he died of a pulmonary infection, he was up all night celebrating the new year with his friends. Stylistically, Petrucciani is most frequently compared to Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett for his lyricism and Oscar Peterson for his virtuosity. His playing was often quite dramatic; critics accuse him of over-indulgence and cheap showmanship; sometimes dismiss his music as being too accessible. Petrucciani was loose and playful in a rhythm section, and gave attention to a strong articulation of the melody. He sometimes paused at the peaks of his solo lines before descending again, as if in appreciation of his idea. Michel distinguished himself most obviously from his primary inspiration in that he lacked Bill Evans's cerebral approach to the piano. Petrucciani's interest was primarily in simply playing; he spent little time reharmonizing or arranging. Michel's unbridled love of the piano in no way entailed artistic carelessness. Indeed, he described the piano as literally taking him to his grave..

I do like your top 4 and was pleasantly surprised by it. He played with many of the jazz bands in the 30s and 40s Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey to name a few, and he had his own radio show.

There he played with Kenny Clarke in and Clark Terry in Terry was missing a pianist, and when Petrucciani was carried onto the stage, he thought it was a joke; Petrucciani was not more than three feet tall.

But he astounded Terry and the rest of the festival with his prodigious talent and virtuosity. He was a dwarf, but he played like a giant. I said, 'listen, little guy — don't run away. I'll be back for you. Petrucciani's trip to Paris garnered mixed experiences but was undoubtedly musically and personally transforming.

He reports, "It was Midget jazz pianist to do with drugs and weird women, but I was lucky and got out safe. He wore a yachtsman's cap and frequently acted pushy and tough, referring Midget jazz pianist people as 'baby'.

He Midget jazz pianist how to say 'motherfucker' in French," said Michael Zwerinwho met Petrucciani when the pianist was fifteen.

Moving to Paris, he recorded his first album at 17, and he was appearing regularly at European jazz festivals while still a teen-ager. After a visit to New York he toured France in a duo with the saxophonist Lee Konitz, with whom he recorded an album of duets. While in California in , Mr. Petrucciani was discovered by the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, who made him a member of his quartet. They toured Europe and recorded an album, ''Montreux ' In he was made a knight of the Legion of Honor in Paris. For all the comparisons to Bill Evans, Mr. Petrucciani had found his own style, which was more aggressive, fuller and sunnier than that of his idol and incorporated secondary influences as disparate as McCoy Tyner and Debussy. A marriage to Gilda Butta, a pianist, ended in divorce. He is survived by his companion, Isabelle, his publicist said, and by a son, Alexandre, and a stepson, Rachid Roperch, both of Paris, from a previous relationship. At the time of his death, he was hoping to set up an international jazz school in France. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles.

If you take into account his composing and his position as a pioneer of bebop he should certainly be near the top but as pianist solely, not 2, really not Top As far a people who were left off the list Jessica WIlliams another Monk aficionado deserves a serious consideration. Anyone else own the album Mingus Plays Piano? Very under-appreciated album. You should be ashamed! Dave Grusiin and Bob James? As already pointed out by other folks here, there a few important omissions: You missed Dave Zoller. One of the true greats. Finishing work on a Theloneous Monk anniversary album. He is amazing! Perhaps this list should have gone with 88, still matching the number of keys. Too many great ones left off, as mentioned in the comments. If you needed to make some room in the 36 for the glaring omissions, conisder removing Shearing, Mays, Grusin and James. If in all this beautiful list there was no place for lennie tristano who wrote this list should do some homework. The ranking is ridiculous Monk for 2nd etc… IMO. These are all all great pianists but there are probably many we never heard of and some who were excluded. No females? BTW, no Denny Zeitlin? The Modern Jazz Quartet got me and countless others into modern jazz, as opposed to trad and Dixieland. Where the hell is John Lewis? How could you do this! For shame. Bobby Enriquez is my favorite! Fast, fast, fast! Others not mentioned: Aw, man. Have you got no heart? No Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson? Magicians of the boogie woogie. Bringers of joy. He gave and still gives me the largest goose bumps. Love him. Way overrated: Jessica Williams is one of the most under appreciated jazz pianists today. She has performed with other amazing musicians for years, and I only recently discovered her. She is a creative heart and soul jazz pianist. There is no best jazz pianists in this world but one fucking dangerous fucking idiot who got the pretension to class them. Lets not argue about who is missing it is impossible to have all names available, but in real terms in matters not a hoot because Bud Powell and Monk are there. Barry Harris, should be in the top twenty. John Hicks could really burn the keys, and Brother Newborn, was on par with the great Oscar Peterson. This is a sorry list of the greatest jazz pianist. Phineas Newborn is not here. This is total crap. This is posted by some Johnny come Lately. Jason Draper. Take another look and let us know what you think! No armenian piano player either. Tigran Hamasyan is by far one of the best piano players in the world. This is a good summary of jazz pianists. But ranking them is ridiculous. They all have their own style. If you are ranking, what are your criteria? If you have no criteria, what is the point. I might come up with a different list. So would you. I think the list captured most of the major players, missed a few that I would have included — McPartland and Newborn to name a couple — and some of the rankings are idiosyncratic. So, withal my disagreements, cool list. The omission of Marian McPartland is criminal. I do like your top 4 and was pleasantly surprised by it. He played with many of the jazz bands in the 30s and 40s Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey to name a few, and he had his own radio show. Here is just a sampling of his work and there is much more on youtube. His name is Ryo Fukui. Damn it! Hiromi Uehara! A must! And i happen to agree. Me too.

A marriage to Gilda Butta, a pianist, ended in divorce.

Newsletter Sign Up Continue reading the main story Please verify you're not a robot by clicking the box. I think both three could be a little bit Higher. And Craig Taborn should be for sure on the list! Because I am not a sexist I can not forget of course one of my favorite Marilyn Crispell! Earl Hines would hold the No. Another who could really deliver when the atmosphere was just right was Dorothy Donegan. Cedar was awesome. Listen to him all the time. Always inventive, always funky. Maestro, no question. Respect from England. Mal Waldron should just be in the top 5. And I am surprised that Brad Mehldau was not mentioned …. One of the main proponents of the Herbie Hancock school of jazz who played with everyone, including the Marsalisis and Kenny Garrett is a loser! And rock no less! Go clean your ears and learn some lineage!! I knew Kenny very well when we were students at MSM…Most important he was a wonderful soul who made you feel important…. Whenever I scroll through these lists I am pleased to find my CD collection has so many of the folks listed!! The great Jessica Williams. Mine as well, John. And I might add a few others not on the list or mentioned above: No Eddie Higgins? No Eliane Elias? I have listened to most on the list and they are all good…. Everybody goes ape over Art Tatum.. But he was all arpeggio and flash. Teddy Wilson and fats should be a lot higher on that list. Apart from that: Nobody misses Cedar Walton? Oscar Peterson 5?? Teddy Wilson 21 WTF? What about Milt Buckner? Ahmad told me this personally many times. Nat King Cole, was probably better known for his vocals, than being a piano player. His piano playing, to me was rather too simplistic and mundane when compared with the likes of Red Garland and Oscar Peterson. To put Erroll Garner at 17 is ludicrous-if you listen extensively he is really unparallelled musically-also had a great technique and he was certainly the greatest composer among all the jazz giants. I happened to meet Erroll on tour in and he was the most self effacing lovely man you could meet. Junior Mance told me in that everyone was blown away by Erroll in the early days in NY and they all wanted to play like him, Erroll is justifiably living a second life on the net and part of the problem for fans now is that Erroll died long ago and may have got overlooked somewhat. So he has to be right up there and is my favourite primarily because of his unique musicianship and his unmatched intros-beat that! And note Erroll looked and sounded like he was having the time of his life-tragically died too young from lung cacer at 55yrs. Imposible que no figure uno de los creadores y geniales pianistas del principio: I play and little piano and guitar and fancy myself as fairly knowledgeable in guitar, bass and drums……Maybe I know just enough to get into trouble……no one can ever agree on any list……ever. Have to agree that these names could fit in there somewhere. They also seem to find the perfect balance between restraint and expressivity while the others are simply on another level. Hey Daniel, yours is one of only few comments I could subscribe. Jarrett behind Monk? The very underestimated Dave MacKenna could be mentionned here. And Abdullah Ibrahim. And, of the younger generation, Robert Glasper. And, and, and…. Grusin and James nice people! Hill, Cables and Hersch should be higher. And how about Jess Stacy? Both Teddy W and Earl Hines felt he was their equal, and both are rightfully on this list. I personally think Mary Lou Williams should be somewhere on the list, maybe even Elaine Elias but there are a lot more great male jazz pianists than female. This is not the case with concert classical pianists. And Bill Evans really was the Master of them all. I do have some issues with some on list but the top 5 in a different order is very good but is debateable in some people. His Commodore recordings are one of the great pinnacles of jazz. Gonzalo Rubalcaba should be on list, somewhere near the top. And Brad Mehldau, of course. Thanks Herman. And then I saw your post. I love Tete. And George Gershwin! Lists are silly. You can always make the case for any of these folks but as time goes on people forget the greats of a somewhat earlier day. Duke should be in the top ten…wish he had recorded a solo album…. I disagree with the order of the entire list with the exception of Art Tatum. An I would move Bill Evans to 2 in front of Monk. The next time a poll like this is conducted, it should be taken among all the living jazz pianists. I mean Brubeck should be in the top 5, and Dave Grusin in the top 10 just based on the contribution they have made to jazz over the years. Other than that, might as well throw darts. I rate him up with Monk and far better than Art Tatum in his jazz input. Whats the reason for his omission. How does one compare pianists with different styles? Monk could have played like Tatum. Rather the genius opted to define his own style that fitted his original compositions and his improvisations. And the arguing goes on! If that surprises anyone. My interest is in most classical piano but admire jazz pianists who possess a solid thorough technique AND play with something resembling a pleasant singing tone. I have no use for the percussive style virtually devoid of dynamics that many exhibit. I agree with a couple of dozen on the list, but I would have thought that Maryanne McPartland deserved an entry somewhere. I agree with the guy who thought Iturbi was a better jazz pianists than many on this list. Wow -as a Jazz piano lover I could care less about the order, though it might be nice to see a list of living piano players. You should see the list I put together with the additional pianist mentioned in the comments here. My list is at 90 players, some of whom I have not heard before. I will enjoy the ride of just listening and enjoying…. Scott Joplin is on this list. Hmmm, has anyone ever actually heard Scott Joplin play?? No, is the answer. How laughable is this list. Scott Joplin made about 6 hand played piano rolls, including a composition by W. C Handy but he certainly should not be on this list. A great list, but as many people already said, loads of pretty good pianists are missing! Gil Evans? Andre was a young European hanging around LA at the time. One guess where Previn got his inspiration!! There are so many great Jazz Pianists!!!! They cannot possibly all fit in a list of 36 musicians!!! I guess the first 36 pianists are some of the best! Lists are a good way of focusing the mind, by making us consider who else could be there. Duke Ellington! What makes a great pianist, in any style of music, is not how fast or how many notes he can play, but his ability to develop the richest variety of colors. Must agree with some of the preceding comments: I say: No way Jose! Awesome list! Take Five is consistently regarded as the greatest Jazz tune of all time by many. Dave was also the second Jazz artist to be on the cover of Time Magazine, only second to the venerable Louis Armstrong. Lists are worthless when they leave out folk like this: Barry Harris? Nina Simone on keys as great a pure pianist as anyone? Billy Taylor? Randy Weston? I really think this is difficult work. Nevertheless, we must find a way to include several outstanding persons not on the list, in my order of priority they are: In time, Benny Green will need to be on the list as well. The best of all Jazz Pianist ist Keith Jarrett! In the combination of musical technique und being a great composer. Great list. WK is top ten for me. But the big name often overlooked is Sonny Clark — unmatched feel. Erroll Garner is a forgotten genius, should be placed at no. Ketil Bjornstadt 3. Ahmad Jamal 4. Joe Zawinul 5. Herbie Hancock 6. Claude Bolling 7. Mc Coy Tyner 8. Hiromi 9. Oscar Peterson Gonzalo Rubalcaba These are the pianists who define jazz today. You forgot Kenny Drew and Cecil Tayler should have had a higher range. And Scott Joplin on the list? Being an Old Cool Cat, I think that it is difficult to choose the top 50 let alone 36! Also worth a mention was Joshua Riffkin playing Scott Joplin. Diana Kroll mentioned by others continues to grow in stature, and should make the top Old hands playing very sweet music.. Jessica Williams is not well known by most jazz lovers though she has released dozens of excellent CDs: She is much admired by jazz pianists and the few jazz radio stations that still exist e. I think she should have made the list. No one has a timeless list of The Greatest. For instance we could compile a list of the best percussive players the list would completely change — if you get my drift. Alan Broadbent, Aaron Diehl, Hiromi, there are so many out there. A list of the ten greats certainly would include Tatum, Evans, Bud Powell. Shearing, Oscar, Michele Le Grand for the few of us who have heard him live. Bill Charlap deserves recognition. Monk is in the Pantheon, not for his playing, but for the totality that he brings to the genre. They surely must be up there with the best. Brubeck was one of the most innovative pianists of his time. Nat king Cole was a jazz pianist before he became a singer. So please give credit where credit is due. I think there are two important ones missing. First, Lennie Tristano had a bigger influence on jazz piano than most people think about. Tristano contributed some extremely interesting rhythmic perspectives. Secondly, Clare Fischer had a huge influence, and no one as far as I could see has mentioned him. Herbie Hancock, several times during interviews, has given Clare credit for a significant part of his harmonic knowledge. And he used all that harmonic knowledge in his playing. And the list has 36 pianists because there are 36 black keys on the piano? Wow, Bill Evans before Oscar Peterson. Certainly Fats Waller should have been further up the list, and what about James P. How Nat King Cole was left out boggles the mind, he was only crucial in developing the Jazz trio, a format that made Bill Evans and so many others so popular. Bill Evans is the greatest of all jazzpinaist. Oscar Petersson as you mentionedmissused his tecnical ability. Bill evans had an nusicality creativity and a deep the is unmatched by any player. His beautifully sound and inovativ chord and sofisticated rythm was outstanding. He manged to allways play with such an high level despite his drug problem. He was a genious that contributed to the music as the great classical composers. Lenny Tristano? Oh, I know. Lenny Tristano! How about Lenny Tristano? Or Dave McKenna. Don Shirley? Not sure what category he goes in. Nat King Cole was marvelous. And now heresy time. Second to none. But his playing is mechanical and soulless. After hearing a few songs I just want to move on to someone with with some heart in their playing. The top 10 is MINT………. McPartland because apart from her undoubted talent she was very gracious when I spoke to her between sets at the Hickory House. At 88 yrs I have heard most of the musicians on the various lists. By the way nobody has mentioned George Zack, his contribution to Muggsies Someday Sweetheart and others really pleased me. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone hears beautiful music as it appeals to their ear. This amazing musician has got to be the most overlooked jazz pianist of all time! Agree with many comments,especially Marion MacPartland. And did I miss Dr Billy Taylor? What about George Gershwin? And Nat Cole? The list goes on ,doesnt it? Between Chucho and Art Tatum a toss up as I would have included John Lewis and everybody has their own list but this is YOUR list so there should be no criticism at all. Nobody can make a favorite list for someone else. If you made this list top there would still be people with their favorites not on it. You explained that in the beginning so there should be no complaining. I did pick up a few names that I will make an effort to find for my own listening pleasure. Johnny Costa is comparable to Art Tatum. My list: Meade Lux Lewis 2. Pete Johnson 3. Albert Ammons 4. Jimmy Yancey 5. Mary Lou Williams 6. Freddie Slack 7. Alan Toussant 8. Pinetop Smith 9. Hazel Scott Art Hodes. Who conducted this survey? A bunch of rock musicians????? You made an attempt that is insurmountalble for each have left an indubitable mark on jazz from Tatum to Evans to Brubeck to Jamal………but Chick……come on. No Kenny Barron but you have that crackpot Keith Jarrett on this list? As with all harmonic instruments and probably even melodic ones there are so many elements in playing them. Greatest how; for what? There are a few names missing on your list, such as Vince Guaraldi, Russ Freeman, Dudley Moore, Egberto Gismonti, Claude Bolling; each of these have special talents that deserve mention. In short, I suggest you might devise a poll based on categories — such as as harmonic creativity, melodic creativity, originality, interpretation, composition and form building, playing technique, influence on other musicians etc etc. I love Monk, but respectfully disagree about placing him at 2. If there is one piano player who, in my opinion, comes out tops in all categories it has to be the astounding Bill Evans. First of all, there is a severe under-representation of brilliant, young pianists: And from the older but still highly active! The problem with lists like this is that they draw a stagnant picture of a very vibrant art. Plenty more good jazzpianists! I give you two european pianists: Art Tatum definitely 1. I would not put Monk at 2. Also, McCoy should be higher ranking than 6. Maybe swap with Monk… But, still a pretty good list of all the greats I know of. Thank you! Of course then there is Erroll Garner. Downgraded by some because he was accepted by the unwashed masse and not given to pontification about the very real profound nature of jazz, he is hardly to blame that playing piano came so effortlessly to him or that he always believed audiences should be entertained. Hell, he was playing the most complex chords and rhythmns long before self-described experts got around to giving them names. Sometimes I think Garner was not human. He did not have to rely on playing set riffs and pretending it was improvisation. He merely heard a song in his head and made up the new melody using that tune alone. He was completely ambidextrous and playing three against fours etc a horror to most human pianists was like taking candy from a baby to him. He swung like no other. Sure some of the more obvious and elememtary things he did on piano could be imitated by lesser pianists. Taken as a whole , however, I doub t there has ever been as spontaneously creative a pianist as Erroll Garner. Some scientists claim if you put a monkey at a typewriter and gave him , years or so, he would eventually write MacBeth or Romeo and Juliet. Probably top ten. There were better pure piano players. But Art definitely deserves to be number one. Lists such as these are never definitive but are made to be debated and argued; to think of them in any other way is pointless. Ok, you gave us a Braxton and Threadgill set.. Another vote for Al Haig. My top 14 jazz pianists in alphabetical order, based on 60 years of listening: Have never really understood the Art Tatum worship. A list like this is never going to please anyone. A brilliant musician like Marian McPartland being left off is inexcusable. And no Billy Taylor? Anyway, the list is an interesting exercise because it makes one think. Pianists are musicians and musicians are artists and not marathon runners, tennis players or race car drivers. Second, nobody remembers Mel Powell and Johnny Guarnieri? The list should be extended to at least 88 names without ranking them. Pianists as any other professional musician are certainly competing with their art yet not for being ranked but for getting loved, respected, and paid well for their performances! Oscar Peterson number 2 after Art Tatum. I am glad that The Count and the Duke are in the top. It seems that they get forgotten as pianists Piano has so many fantastic players that for me I have a huge amount of favorites. Any list without Billy Taylor has no credibility. To me, Keith Jarrett is very overrated. Myra Melford is missing, and yes Diana Krall belongs there. Mulgrew Miller needs to be in there definitively. Fred Hersch is missing. We are all very lucky and should be grateful for so much great music!!! A beautiful filigree touch, consistent and even fingering, and excellent pedalling Swings effortlessly at any tempo, never thumps the instrument, as do inferior pianists. Disappointing to see that no one has mentioned Satoko Fujii so far. I agree with the many serious ommissions mentioned by others. That took a lot of work. From the beginning, Petrucciani had always been musical, reportedly humming Wes Montgomery solos by the time he learned to speak. He began learning classical piano at the age of four, and was making music with his family by the age of nine. Petrucciani's layered harmonies, lyrical style, and articulation of melody have always been linked most strongly to this early exposure to Evans. Petrucciani gave his first professional concert at the age of At this point of his life, he was still quite fragile and had to be carried to and from the piano. His hands were average in length, but his size meant that he required aids to reach the piano's pedals. Petrucciani felt he needed to travel to Paris to begin his musical career, but he found it difficult to leave home. His father was protective, constantly concerned for his son's well-being and reluctant to put him in any danger. Petrucciani's drummer Aldo Romano said of Michel's father: He didn't trust anybody. He wanted to keep Petrucciani as a partner, to play music with. He was very jealous. So I had to fight to take him to Paris, because his father didn't want me to, because he wanted to keep him, like you would cage a monster. Petrucciani made his first trip to Paris at the age of fifteen. There he played with Kenny Clarke in and Clark Terry in Terry was missing a pianist, and when Petrucciani was carried onto the stage, he thought it was a joke; Petrucciani was not more than three feet tall. But he astounded Terry and the rest of the festival with his prodigious talent and virtuosity. He was a dwarf, but he played like a giant. I said, 'listen, little guy — don't run away. I'll be back for you. Petrucciani's trip to Paris garnered mixed experiences but was undoubtedly musically and personally transforming. He reports, "It was mostly to do with drugs and weird women, but I was lucky and got out safe. He wore a yachtsman's cap and frequently acted pushy and tough, referring to people as 'baby'. He knew how to say 'motherfucker' in French," said Michael Zwerin , who met Petrucciani when the pianist was fifteen. Petrucciani played in a trio with Kenny Clarke during his time in Paris and rose to stardom. After his stint in Paris, Petrucciani briefly returned to home before beginning his professional life. Living with his drummer, Romano, he was free of the protective presence of his father and began enjoying an independent lifestyle. Petrucciani began recording with Owl Records and struck up a friendship with the recording company's owner, Jean-Jacques Pussiau. Pussiau recalls that Petrucciani always seemed to be in a hurry to record, saying, "I don't want to lose time. Romano remembers: So he had to kill his second father somehow to move on. He needed to escape. He needed to go very far, as far as he could go, and that was California. Petrucciani travelled to the U. This calls into question his strange account of his time in Manhattan. He claimed to have scammed his way into the city on bad checks and hid out in Brooklyn with the help of Sicilian family connections. He also claimed to have played piano in a midtown brothel. What is known for certain is that he ended up in California in , where he visited retired saxophonist Charles Lloyd. Lloyd had stopped playing when people began to view his sidemen as more fashionable than he himself was. You triggered me. I heard this beauty in you and I said, 'well I have to take you 'round the world cause there's something so beautiful, it was like providence calling. On 22 February , with Petrucciani cradled in his arms, Lloyd walked onto the stage at Town Hall in New York City and sat him on his piano stool for what would be a historic evening in jazz history: The film's director John Charles Jopson would later recall in the reissued liner notes that the moment moved him to tears..

Patrice Rushin? Diana Krall? Plus, Diana Krall happens to be married to my favorite musical artist of all time, Mr. Elvis Costello! Feather Fingers. I agree Diana Krall does not belong anywhere near this list. Dianna Krall is a fine musician but is she really a great innovative pianist or just a good all around pianist and entertainer. I think you could make a strong case for Mary Lou Williams to be included on this list.

This list is the all-time great jazz pianists. McPartland and Williams should probably make the list but the other two? Come on. I mean, he was definitely one of the greatests of all time. Oscar Peterson should have been at Midget jazz pianist no 1 spot. My exact thought when reading this naive Midget jazz pianist. After TatumMonk and Evans Midget jazz pianist hard to set a pecking order, but the author needs to listen to Newborn; he Midget jazz pianist way ahead of many of the contemporaries listed.

Phineas Newborn Jr should, of course,…. Sexy mature women in Santa Rosa.
