    I love many of the songs named and shown here, brings back so many memories, like they’re tattooed in your brain.
    Several years ago PBS had a concert by Marvin Hamlisch.
    When he first sat down at the piano and struck the first chord you could tell this guy is something special.
    I watched the whole concert not knowing any of the songs he played, but I was just blown away at his talent and the beauty of the music.
    Just wanted to throw this out there.

    Not necessarily my favorite, but I really enjoy the piano break on Tom Petty’s To Find a Friend from the Wildflowers album. I always thought Benmont was kind of a secret weapon of the Heartbreakers’ sound.

    Ah, this IS the one I "knew" I was forgetting!

    In terms of classical stuff, Chopin's Preludes. Exquisite.

    And when it's snowing, Bach.

    George Duke with Frank Zappa

    Uncle Remus


    It's at the end of the "Zappa medley" but it's so great I included the whole thing. George lets it rip on "Inca Roads" too. RIP GD and FZ!

    The Doors People are Strange



    John Lennon: Instant Karma



    Pink Floyd: The Great Gig in the Sky



    Beethoven's Moonlight and Appassionata sonatas. The entire sonatas are wonderful, but I am partial to the third movements in both. (I am partial to the Rudolf Serkin performances).

    W3stie's already posted Life On Mars, so I'm going with Ray Manzarek's solo in The Crystal Ship:

    Possibly Floyd Cramer... he certainly recorded an instrumental version of this song ?

    I tend to much DISlike electric piano. Sounds like crayons burping.

    But Billy Preston's electric piano on "Don't Let Me Down"--shazam! Great stuff.

    Already Mentioned... a whole bunch of Dave Brubeck & Thelonius Monk, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock.

    After that I mostly think Classical. Chopin, Bach, mostly.

    There's a lot of pop/rock piano I don't like even though I really love Piano. Too many artists who are not pianists who just take guitar-ish rhythm parts and take them over to the piano.

    Then there is Billy Joel.. I mostly hate his classic songs, even though he is quite a good pianist. I don't really mind Elton John.

    And then despite everything I said I like some of the Coldplay stuff with Piano.. even though it is probably not really "good piano", and the production on a lot of their albums is horrible if you start listening with a good audio system.

    I like the simpler Chopin stuff more than some of the bombastic stuff.



    Glenn Gould playing Bach's WTC.. I've never gotten sick of listening to this:
