The Lineage of Modern Jazz Piano free eBook by Richie Beirach

Richie and I created an eBook that highlights the ten most essential modern jazz piano players from Art Tatum to Cecil Taylor.

Richie went to great lengths to explain that these are not simply his favorite players, but instead are the ones who paved a new path forward in the evolution of jazz piano. These are the players that, if they hadn’t existed, jazz as we know it would be different and the players after them might not have been known.

The ten players are:

  • Art Tatum
  • Bud Powell
  • Thelonious Monk
  • Bill Evans
  • Paul Bley
  • Herbie Hancock
  • McCoy Tyner
  • Chick Corea
  • Kieth Jarrett
  • Cecil Taylor


For each player, Richie identifies their innovation, their influence, and three must-listen-to albums.
