Piano JAZZ Music
on: November 17, 2003, 10:58:22 AM
I usually play classical piano music (Ravel, Debussy, Mompou, Blancafort, de Sévérac, Tailleferre, Scriabin, Liszt, Grieg, Madetoja, etc.) very much and I adore it. But I'm also pretty much into Jazz music and I enjoy playing Gerhswin's piano pieces a lot.

I'm sure that there has to be at least a few Jazz pianists in these boards. Can you recommend something really good for me? I'd appreciate it very much.

Much obliged.

;)

how about some of Chick Corea's Children's Songs? Even though many of the published Bill Evans books are inaccurate, they give you a decent idea of the tunes and the voicings.

Interesting subject... I personally have no tolerance for jazz. Excluding Paul Schoenfield's "Cafe Music" which is a really cool piano trio, its brilliant and somewhat hard.

Jazz fan here. The earliest jazz tune I know of (excluding Bach's bebop lines) is that late Beethoven sonata that almost swings in the last(?) movement ;-)

Into Bill Evans, Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, Michel Camilo and others...
Everyone's different. I am the same.
