Lots of the names already mentioned but I also love Les McCann and Joe Gilman. Then there's Mark Levine.

Nicky Hopkins was so good. I got to see him a time or two with Quicksilver Messenger Service. He could play with anyone and fit right in.

Keith Godchaux did some excellent work in his early years with The Dead before he got strung out.

I'm not a fan of all of his music, but Bruce Hornsby has done some nice work.

Leon Russell always put on a good show.

Johnny Johnson. Chuck Berry's right, and left, hand man.

Those are my favorites.

I'd love to turn back time and watch Liszt, Chopin & Beethoven play the piano.

I bumped this after hearing this female player named Rachel Flowers. She's only 17 and already has chops like a pro.

Check out some of her You Tube vids.
