          Do you just do these lists off of the top of your head?

              I thought perhaps by the title you were looking for sheet music to play....

              One of my fav's is Maple Leaf Rag, but is too difficult for my skill level...maybe when I was in middle school at the peak of my piano playing days.

                If you're looking for a bit of jazz, I love the live album from Stan Getz and Kenny Barron - People Time. It's a sax/piano duet which equally features both artists. Getz played like he knew it would be his final album, and Kenny Barron was equally impressive as a one man rhythm section and soloist.

                  Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op.13 ("Pathetique")
                  Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58
                  Works by Craig Armstrong ("Glasgow Love Theme")
                  Works by Vienna Teng (Piano + Vocal) ("Say Uncle", "Lullaby for a Stormy Night")

                  Most of those are songs that'll make you warm and fuzzy =)

                    Definitely Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz if you can find it.

                      Yes and no.
                      The artists are my favorites, but I have my entire LP and Cd collection ripped as FLAC and catalogued in OrangeCD by genre, instrument, artist, album and year, so in seconds I can list all my piano albums

                        django do you want pure piano?? im a pure piano guy... one of my favorite piano albums is "Christopher O riley - true love waits (christopher o riley plays radiohead)"

                        a very raw piano performance (and probably pretty well known) is "gonzales - solo piano"

                        some not so pure piano is yann tiersen who does a lot of soundtracks with slight ambience added to the piano, but its still very emotional piano pieces imo

                        edit: another one thats pretty good is aphex twin - drukgqs (spelling im not sure of..). Yeah its aphex twin but apparently he can do piano also and do it well..

                          For something cool, besides the music, look into the Zenph Re-Performance of Glenn Gould's 1955 performance of J.S Bach - The Goldberg Variations. There are some MP3 downloads on the linked page.

                          Check out their store for more piano "re-performances".

                            Great choices!
                            Apparently you just got hypothetically banned by the unnamed new mods for the AV123.com forum that are working to clean the forums up on a forum that is currently closed. Sucks to be you :bite me:

                              Two that would be "must haves" to me in the jazz piano genre would be....

                              Professor Longhair Anthology......A good overall view of his work. New Orleans "boogie-woogie" style. Professor Longhair (Fess) was THE master of the genre. Plus, it's a fun listen.

                              Although way more prolific, and different, Oscar Peterson took traditional jazz piano to heights not known. Lots of his music available, but OSCAR IN PARIS is as good a starting point as any. Plus, it's well recorded and is a great Telarc disc.
