I must have listened to it for at least 20 times already, my god it is best music I have ever heard.

That being said, are there any other similar piano songs?

I assume you're talking about Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert? He has a unique style, but he has recorded other solo albums. A recent a well-reviewed one is called RIO. Hard to recommend other stuff, but perhaps Brad Mehldau's Live at Marciac.

There is a great transcription of the concert available - I think through advance music. He is brilliant.

You should also check out the intro to What is This Thing Called Love from Whisper Not. That too is transcribed out on the web - killer ostinato introduction.

Right now there is Keith and there is everybody else.

Why not, Keith did it. You just have to read the book "groaning for dummies."

You can't be Keith, you can't be anyone but yourself. You can take some of the elements you like and incorporate into your own style. For example, this guy sounds to me like he has listened to Koln once or twice:

As has been said before, perhaps Mehldau is the closest thing to that kind of music. Browse some solo tunes of him on youtube and judge yourself.
I like very much his renditions to My favourite things (the longest one), O que serĂ¡, Blackbird and 50 ways to leave your lover, among other great compositions.
With regards to his albums (there are many) the one I like most is "Places", playing trio.
