For the coolest of cool jazz pianist on the planet, I'd recommend Keith Jarrett. I have almost ALL of his recordings and there's not one sitting
around collecting dust.
Then, for a rising star, of who I DO have all their recordings, I'd recommend Michael Kaeshammer. Totally great Boogie Woogie artist with a growing
following. I saw him live in Toronto a couple of years ago and he blew me away. I've heard that there is a new release coming out and you can bet
it's on my 'to get' list.
This vid, though, is more of the 'cool jazz' variety;
