Yah I know I know, this is a guitar forum, but whatever, this subforum has been really great for diversifying my music collection (which tbh was stagnating due to lack of net), and I really want spread my wings further on the blues and jazz side of things so I'd like some recommendations for:

Blues pianists

And Jazz pieces that are primarily piano with guitar accompaniment.


Cheers.

Look into Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and Fats Domino.

All great pianists of the genre, though whether you'd count a lot of Stevie Wonder's stuff as blues/jazz is down to your opinion.
meh!

You could look up Monty Alexander, he's bascically a jazz pianist but her certainly does some blues and he has a lot of carribean influece, I think he's great.

In jazz, I would recommend Thelonious Monk. He's probably one of the better known jazz pianists, and for good reason.

Thelonious Monk is amazing. Reminds me a lot of Charles Mingus's Sextet's stuff. Awesome.
