Piano jazz: Marcus Roberts

Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Piano jazz is where I bathe. One of my brimming fountains of joy and cleanliness is Marcus Roberts. Once pianist with Wynton Marsalis, he has made a tub of albums on his own. I have one fublime favorite: "Alone with 3 Giants." It is a solo and serene take on compositions from Ellington, Monk and Jelly Roll Morton.

Who's your piano jazz person? Your platonic disk?
