Art Tatum, Ben Webster - Gone with the Wind
youtube (the title link, above, is to this song)

Around 2:25 when the sax comes in, listen to the life Mr Webster puts into the sax's sound. The CD box set The Complete Pablo Group Masterpieces ( allmusic.com ) is one of my favorites CD sets.


King Cole Trio - Body and Soul

Before Mr Cole started singing, he was considered to be one of the better jazz pianists of the era.


Teddy Wilson - Rosetta

Mr. Wilson is a good contrast to Mr Tatum. The former is a very precise player, the latter tends to be a bit more ornate.


I could go on, but that should be enough to give you an entry into youtube on this musical genre.

Hard to think of a jazz pianist that could swing like Erroll Garner...

Ugh, just listen to all those wrong notes.
That's why I'm glad we have AutoTune!

--Erroll Garner - Erroll's Bounce

Just reading the transcription shows how crazy good he was. He could play 5 note 10th chords effortlessly, for chrissakes.

Doing more with less.
Count Basie.
