    I would have to say that one of my favorite pianists would have to be Vince Guaraldi. He isn't the most talented, but the smooth jazz he produces is very satisfying to listen to, and he made the movie "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown". My favorite pianist of all time is Isaac Shepard however. The music he creates is so original, so pure, and he captures the mood and theme of ever topic he tries to express in his music. And, I have a little soft spot for him, because his song "Leaves in the Wind" helped me to hook up with the love of my life. smile

    Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubenstein, Sviatoslav Richter, Glenn Gould, Rachmaninoff and Alfred Brendel.

    Vladimir Ashenazy, because he has a more unique interpretation of some of Chopin's works.

    Hands down, my favorite pianist is Victor Borge.  The way he added humor to his music always lifted my spirits.  He is greatly missed in this 21st century of ours.

    No doubt, Bent Fabric  -  of course.

    You seem to be scratching your head and saying, 'who the H..L is Bent Fabric?' 
      You know who he is, you just probably forgot.  He wrote and recorded a little tune called, "Alley Cat",
