ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM (guitarist and keyboardist)  I couldn't find a good clip of JOBIM on youtube, but if you know the album GETZ/GILBERTO that's JOBIM on the piano...

Thanks for the Jobim info, AHD--for some reason I always assumed he was also playing guitar on GETZ/GILBERTO.

How did this thread go so long without mentioning

33. Thelonius Monk?

This footage of him at work is from the recommended documentary STRAIGHT NO CHASER.

No.35 - Alan Price - The Animals "House Of The Rising Sun" alone merits inclusion.

DAVE BRUBECK (this youtube clip is great, and BRUBECK's best known recording, but I should point out that the keyboard kind of takes a backseat to the sax... under 5 minutes)

Brubeck's a major fave!  Didn't post him earlier because there's too much competition in this field, but I would have gotten around to him if no one else did.

I almost posted this one this morning, but opted against it because the sax is featured more than the keyboard. Good call!

Well, one must consider one's audience.  This one features keyboards a bit more:

And for #39, VINCE GUARALDI (I couldn't find anything over on youtube except a ton of other people playing his well known compositions)  Perhaps someone who is better at youtube search could find VINCE GUARALDI himself...??  Here's one of dozens of clips over there, at least this is GUARALDI's music:

You're right, AHD, kind of hard to find Guaraldi clips.  Guess he didn't like to be filmed...  maybe he was afraid the Man was trying to steal his soul.  Here's his son talking about dad for a documentary, with some Vince stills:

If you can get over the fact that he turned into a jerk and sellout, he's got major chops.

42. George Winston

I'm not particularly into New Age music, but Winston's album Linus & Lucy: The Music of Vince Guaraldi, with music from the Peanuts cartoons, won me over. Couldn't find a You Tube clip from that album, but his other music is quite good as well.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
