I am impressed that Art Tatum is number one ( no argument here ), and that Fats Waller and James P. Johnson made the lst, although they should both be much higher. I agree Diana Krall does not belong anywhere near this list. No Eliane Elias? Trane’s Romanticism was heaven-bent and spiritual in contrast. Erroll is justifiably living a second life on the net and part of the problem for fans now is that Erroll died long ago and may have got overlooked somewhat.I understand that Art Tatum was very taken with him (”one day he will become something”)and I think Erroll drove him around a bit and even went up against Art in a piano duel(s).

Hey Charles. Cedar was awesome.Listen to him all the time.Always inventive, always funky. Michel Camillo. 19 McCoy Tyner Gene Harris should be among the best 10!!! AUTUMN IN MUSKOKA (Vol.1) is very good. John Hicks could really burn the keys, and Brother Newborn, was on par with the great Oscar Peterson.
