    Yes, Tim's obviously trying to forge the "social" spirit in the "community"...

    And of course RIP Dave Brubeck - he almost became 92, so many other jazz musicians died way too early.

    So true ... most with plenty of help from sustance abuse! Dave was truly an icon. Here are my top five pianists of all time for any other jazz aficionados on the forum.

    1. Oscar Peterson
    2. Billy Taylor
    3. Dave Brubeck
    4. Bill Evans
    5. Herbie Hancock

    Here's some that come to mind you didn't mention, can't really order them

    - Horace Silver
    - Chick Corea
    - Bobby Timmons
    - Duke Pearson
    - Duke Ellington (kinda obvious and I haven't heard enough of him, but what I've heard from his post-swing era material was poetry)

    Good choices as well, nobetter. I do like Chick Corea and of course, Ellington is a legend but there is no body better than Oscar Peterson IMHO. Plus a shout out to Jalopy ... he is/was Canadian!
