One of my all time favourite Epic Music groups just released a new album: Resonance by Twelve Titans Music. Highly recommended! open.spotify.com/album/3pC… 🎵

@dominikhoecht I think you'll like to hear Lyle Mays' music. www.youtube.com/watch

@paulopinto I think you mix it up. Lyle Mays is more relaxing music. Twelve Titans Music (or Really Slow Motion, Two Steps From Hell,...) are Epic Music Groups. They create Trailer Music with epic (blasting) moments. BUT: I like Lyle Mays music. I listened to your recommendation and it's actually good.

@paulopinto @dominikhoecht I’ve been meaning to listen to Lyle Mays for years. Thanks for the reminder. Two of my favourite pianists (Brad Mehldau and Esbjörn Svensson) have also played with Pat Metheny.

@artkavanagh @dominikhoecht My favoutire pianists are Lyle Mays (RIP), Brad Mehldau, Esbjörn Svensson (RIP) and Paul Bley (not to mention Bill Evans). Pat Metheny has always been my musical inspiration.

@dominikhoecht yes, you're right. KInd of different mood.

@paulopinto I tend to like the pianists who were influenced by Bley (including Jarrett) more than Bley’s own playing. Other favourites of mine are Enrico Pieranunzi, John Taylor (RIP), Marcin Wasilewski and Benedikt Jahnel.

@artkavanagh Jarret is a reference also for me. But I was lucky enough to hear many (for me) unknown pianists in my town's Jazz Festival, for the last 27 years. I remember Sophia Domancich, Kenny Barron, among others.

@artkavanagh ohhh, I forgot Mal Waldron and Ran Blake.

@paulopinto I’ve got recordings by Domancich (with Simon Goubert and Jean-Jacques Avenel) and Kenny Barron. I used to go to a festival in Capbreton (SW France) where I heard Mulgrew Miller (RIP), Dado Moroni and Pieranunzi (whom I’ve also heard in Paris, twice, and Amsterdam). It must be nice to have a festival so close to home but I also enjoy travelling to them. Ran Blake is someone I’ve never managed to get into, though I know he’s widely admired.
