Hard to answer that question. There isn't a particular song because where I live, fantastic gospel piano players come a dime a dozen. ;):cool:

I agree Prof. Most of the greatest players aren't anywhere on the national radar. I can rattle off a handful no one has heard of outside of the genre...

Depends on if you're talking trad or modern. Modern is a different bag.

It certainly helps to make the distinction between traditional and modern gospel.

 

Either way, Thomas Whitfield was my favorite gospel KB player hands down.

 

Whitfield set the precedent for a lot heard in gospel today. Cats have digested his style and added various influences to the point that as MW and K mentioned, the stuff they are playing now is ridiculous i.e. good. ;):cool:

If I had to pick one, the Prof picked the right one. Anyone wanting to hear where today's gospel piano came from need not look any further than Thomas "The Maestro" Whitfield. His voicings are STILL standard setters...the harmonies he heard between voice and piano were nothing short of incredible.
