If you are stranded on desert island and you don't have a soccer ball but you do have the music of only one keyboard influence on MP3*, who would that be?

*Of course by some miracle you have an unlimited supply of fresh batteries and an MP3 player, and maybe some self powered monitors.

Herbie Hancock. Thrust and Speak Like A Child are my desert island albums without a doubt; add to that all the Miles Davis classics plus his guest spots with Stevie Wonder and Milton Nascimento, I'm set for a while on that desert island.

That’s a hard one. Would have to decide between Cory Henry, Scott Joplin, and Peter James.

Same here as they say you want to learn history of great jazz musicians get either all of Miles Davis albums or Art Blakey and Jazz Messengers everyone great was on those albums at some point. So for piano/keyboard for me it's Herbie Hancock from his BlueNote days as a sideman playing more traditional, on to Mwandishi band that morphed into the Headhunters, to his mixture of Jazz, Funky, EDM, and Pop. Duo with Chick Corea, Gershwin album on to today with Robert Glasper he covers it all. Plus he was a media composer about the time he was getting out of college and thanks to advice from Donald Bird he never signed away his royalties he financed he own career. He went to college on a piano scholarship, but love electronics switched majors and that is why he was a pioneer of synthesizers in Jazz.

Sadly for me it was in my aspiring recording engineer days I got to hangout with Herbie for a bit at one of the Milton Nascimento sessions. I wish I had know I would be heading back to playing, I would of had more to try and talk to Herbie about.

Herbie is da man.

Tricky. I learned a ton as a kid by listening to (and aping) Jimmy Smith; it was my foot in the door for playing with some very skilled folks. I will always be grateful.

However, even though I am occasionally critical of some of his playing, there's a heck of a lot of compositional and improvisational chops to be gained from Keith Emerson -- not to mention an implicit course in 19th and 20th century music history.

Emerson by a nose.

A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Can't choose one but for Classic Jazz- Bud Powell and Bird (not piano but he's all encompassing). Early Herbie and Bill. Contemporary - Jarrett and Kenny Barron.

Classical - Rubinstein for Chopin. András Schiff or Angela Hewitt for Bach. Michelangeli and Perahia (contemporary) for most everything.

Rock- The Band, early Leon Russell, Traffic and anything else Winwood from that era.

RnB / Crossover Jazz - Joe Sample

And in his own category that's undefinable- Stevie.

I'm not sure you'd need to worry about having to listen to just one artist. Assuming you can dig in the sand, the island will be riddled with buried Nord Leads from centuries ago, so you can make your own music.

I’d want to keep a positive attitude, so Scott Joplin. Or Walter Wanderley.

Nord legs. Oh, sorry. Well, its a heretical view for a progger who reveres Patrick Moraz's duet period with Bill Bruford, but for sheer breadth and fascination, its a toss-up between Zawinul and Chick Corea. The former made synths uniquely lyrical and Chick's piano accompaniment on Stanley Clarke's "A Song For John" is a serious pinnacle.
