'Every step forward in jazz piano has been taken within a context of what came before': Robert L Doerschuk surveys the careers of 88 jazz pianists - one for each key on the piano - beginning with the age of Jelly Roll Morton and Fats Waller and taking the story down to the present day with modern legends such as Harry Connick, Jr and Benny Green. Each of the essays includes analysis of the player's style and innovations, with discussion of key recordings.
