Anything by Scott Joplin gets my vote.
Maple Leaf Rag

I also vote for Scott Joplin. For the holidays, nothing beats George Winston’s “December” album.

T Lavitz was the keyboardist in Steve Morses band the Dixie Dregs and is my favorite modern keyboardist. Watch him play High Falutin’ Blues

Billy Joel has a fantastic album of pieces he composed in the classical style. It’s called Fantasies & Delusions: Music for Solo Piano, and there are plenty of clips on YouTube if you’re interested.

Gershwin would have to be my all-time favorite. I’m not a huge fan of the orchestral performances of songs like Rhapsody in Blue, but the piano version really captures my attention.
