    There are so many superb jazz pianists and Svensson is one of them.

    One of my earliest favourite West Coast jazzmen was Shorty Rogers (and his Giants). The following sample lists many of the great musicians from his group.

    Speaking of excellent pianists - here is a great West Coast player who probably doesn't get enough credit,

    hi john, love the shorty rogers, i have all his albums except for the very hard to find shorty rogers meets tarzan on mgm. there really is an album by that title, it is a soundtrack from about 1963 and is a latin big band. the pete jolly, a master piano craftsman at work, great stuff.

    This piece is from1967, and represents what jazz is really capable of when it is played with passion, focus and sheer artistry.The effects that Nat Adderly coaxes/produces from his cornet still blows my mind--pun fully intended-- to this day. Why this never--at least to my knowledge--became a mega-hit, like The Work Song or Mercy, Mercy, Mercy--has always befuddled me; perhaps because of its length?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmpV6...6D05D858CF356A

    Here's a piece which I believe goes way beyond merely lovely to beautiful--not only aurally, but visually as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMCkS...eature=related

    One of my favorite pieces from EST Steve.

    http://youtu.be/kxwlkjZb6Iw

    Here is another. The piece that set me off with EST first posted by CD. If this was any more laid back it would be horizontal.

    Gord , Steve, teddy,

    All excellent music ;
    Gord - I've never previously heard anything by Les McCann and I'm greatly impressed - how did I miss him?
    teddy - I would have preferred the 2nd beautiful E.S.T. track without the orchestra - the trio is the truly lovely part.

    Cheers John

    Like Charlie Parker, Art Pepper was deeply into drugs - how could they possibly have played so well?

    I have this whole Cd and it is all great.

    I ask 2 main questions about this next piece.

    1. Does the organ qualify as a jazz instrument?
    2. Is this type of latin music jazz?
    Judge for yourseles but let me know.

    Cheers John

    john, the art pepper is a jazz classic.regardingthe organ, i would say it qualifys as a jazz instrument. i am not a great lover of the organ in jazz, but i have a few records by some of the top stars like jimmy smith and wild bill davis that i occationally listen. the other question, that is probably latin, it has a bossa nova feel to it. gord

    To my way of thinking--and listening--the organ is a beautiful instrument that doesn't belong in the jazz genre.
    I would characterize the piece you posted as falling into the category of bossa nova lite {and very lite at that}. I would not consider it to be jazz music--IMHO, of course. This is jazz--at least to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8MLRuFCtF0
