Just discovered this by recommendation. I absolutely want to jam like this guy. Absolutely stellar.

Any recent discoveries you guys have?

Probably nothing new around here, but I recently stumbled across The Piano Guys (also their homepage).

ThePianoGuys' own Jon Schmidt's performance of his own composition called "All of Me" is nothing short of mind-blowing (it was also the first time I have seen someone play with their forearms laugh ).

The sheet music can be obtained for several bucks on their site.

Also of the jazz idiom, I've been listening to a lot of Makoto Ozone lately.

Didn`t like him. There are those on this forum who I prefer. He was too erratic, disjointed, the opposite of Oscar Peterson. imo . . . . wife didn`t like his stuff either!

My Dad introduced me to George Winston, who's bloody fantastic. All of his albums are worth checking out, but here's a couple of my favourite songs of his from the album Autumn:
