I don't know the guys name but that pianist from Joe Bonamassa. He's amazing
Glenn Gould performing Beethoven/Liszt Pastoral Symphony 6 1st movement
Jaco Pastorius & Rashied Ali: Broadway Blues
Bonus points for mentioning a drummer. They are musicians!
I can make my entire family flee screaming by simply picking up a sax and playing the first few notes of Charlie Parker's "Confirmation". I played it a couple of million times in a row , taking my tempo cues from the Hooterville Volunteer Fire Department Band, while we were all snowed in at the Overlook Hotel (all right, it was my parents' house up north, but saying "the Overlook Hotel" made the story better). They all seem to have developed some sort of enduring psychological allergic reaction to the song. That was years ago, and they still haven't recovered from the ordeal. But Lloyd the bartender liked it.
Sydney Bechet, maan..
Which leads me to trombonist Russell 'Big Chief' Moore
and Satchmo too:
One of the earliest albums I ever had was Soul Sauce by Cal Tjader. Can't say it was the Xylophone that nailed me but putting it up front in a Latin Jazz mix caused me to listen intently. Still a great listen.
Vince DiFiore, the trumpet player in the band Cake
That is exactly what I was going to say. On two classic albums he laid down 3 classic sax parts - Money, Us & Them, Shine On - then 20 years later added some great playing on Wearing The Inside Out. Truly great player adding just the right touches to great songs.
Thanks to Elkhorn! I thought her name was on the video. Theressa Anderson (sp) with talented feet too! lol
Jerry Lee Lewis kills the piano, but not half bad on the Strat.
Jimmy Smith this week, with Booker T. Jones and Jon Lord a close second and third...

When Johnny Hodges comes in for his solo at 3:25, after Ella's beautiful genius, time absolutely stops.
I could just give a one word answer: jazz, but to pick a player who deserves more attention, Art Farmer. He made every note count!
(Slipping in some Jim Hall, too, and
He's mainly known for the flugelhorn, but he also played trumpet and flumpet. Yes, that last one is really what you think it is, and Art invented it.
