Further Listening
There is rich tradition of solo jazz piano playing and a huge library of recordings from which to choose. I always return to Jessica Williams' 2010 "Touch" as a model of solo piano playing brilliance. She is understated and profound on this live recording and there's just enough crowd noise and glasses "clinking" in the background to make you feel like you are there.
