Tigran Hamasyan is really amazing! I've been listening to him a lot lately. Are you familiar with Shai Maestro? He's another jazz pianist who Tigran is often compared to. If you like Tigran you might like Shai as well.

Shai Maestro - Paradox

Also, Tigran is releasing a new album in March this year. He already got one vid of him playing a track from that album on youtube:

Tigran Hamasyan - Fides Tua

Loudest is not always the best. Which is what I think this piano player is doing at this point.

If you want that wave, watch the frequency of it.

Hmm? Loudest is more like:

Tigran Hamasyan - The Grid
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0GObQv3pE0

Besides being one of the 'heaviest' pieces of jazz I've ever heard, it's also got one of the most bizarre rhythms. If anybody cares about the technicalities of the rhythm; at least in the beginning, the theme is written in alternating 17/16 and 15/16 measures (in additive 5+5+7/16 and 5+5+5/16 patterns). Together that's 32/16, which is two measures of regular old 4/4. If you try counting it as 4/4 it works somehow, but it becomes pretty clear that 4/4 is not what Tigran had in mind.

Tigran is basically just playing progrock/metal with a jazz trio in the album this song is from :p

.....and this pounding session from one, called by some, to be the greatest piano technician of the 20th century....an arguable point ( I saw him once live and his technique was absolutely jaw dropping ).....that being said I lean more toward Lloyd Glenn and Emil Gilels....

I like the album that this song is from. Tigran's sound and compositions really remind me of UK prog-metal-rockers Haken.
I also liked the piece from Shai Maestro, of whom I'd never head before, so thanks for the recommendation :)
 
After Klaus Dinger's death in 2008, this weekend we lost the other true legend of krautrock rhythm, Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit, after a bout of pneumonia. A jazz-trained drummer, Jaki's persistent grooves punctuated by minimalist fills underpinned the band's most seminal records and helped make Can one of the most revered and interesting of the kosmische bands of the era. Never was his contribution more perfect than on Halleluhwah, 19 minutes of a groove that constantly shifts little by little, and arguably one of the definitive songs of the genre (I would say that this, Neu!'s "Hallogallo", Faust's "Krautrock" and Kraftwerk's "Autobahn" are all pretty close to one another for that title). RIP.
