    Intro - acoustic piano - Joe Cocker's cover of "Feelin' Alright":



    For years I thought this was Chris Stainton but apparently it's Artie Butler.

    Intro - electric piano - Small Faces "Lazy Sunday":



    At least we know this is Ian McLagan!

    Another Ian McLagan:

    Rikki Don’t Lose That Number always hits a spot for me. It’s a total ‘sample’ of Horace Silver’s Song for My Father, right? :)

    It’s is said Floyd wrote this while trying to mimic the nuances of a lead guitar.

    Three come to mind: Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata", his "Appassionata", and Floyd Kramer's "The Last Date".





    @RoscoeElegante, I appreciate your starting this thread. I love piano music, and I have a bad habit of not noticing it sometimes when I hear it.

    Billy Joel, New York state of mind, the whole song is great playing but the intro is just about perfect.

    Too many in various genre.

    - Intro to Stones "Monkey Man."

    - Intro to Traffic's "Glad/Freedom Rider."

    - Outro to Clapton's "Layla."

    - Intro to Steely Dan's "Josie." (And LOTS of other SD stuff.)

    - Almost anything Leon Russell played or played on.

    - Looking way back, all of Scott Joplin's work.


    I really could do this all day...

    Bill Evans - Blue In Green, Flamenco Sketches
    DeBussy's Claire De Lune

    Bruce Hornsby did a nice version of Jack Straw on Deadicated. Nothing spectacular, but it always resonated for me.

    Johnny Johnson for sure - I LOVE the little piano in Maybelline.
