I'll toss in Felix Cavaliere from the Rascals of the '60s. He was great on organ and vocals IMO. Or maybe I'm showing my age

Well, I'll usually go with the prog guys for keys, Wakeman, Emerson, Moraz, etc., but Joey DeFrancesco definitely opened up a whole new world for me with his B3 playing. The first time I saw/heard him, it made my draw drop, quite literally. I first saw him on the BET Jazz Studio Jams program with Derek, Kofi, and the Flecktones guys (this show was also my introduction to Tuck Andress, another recent favorite of mine)

I'll also add John Medeski and Bernie Worrell to those already mentioned.

Lots of excellent talent listed! My personal favorite is Gregg...simply the best, to me! I also, really like Elton John on the piano, though I haven't seen him mentioned here.

I like everyone mentioned, has anyone said Rick Wright?

Pink Floyd is one of my favorites, but with so many sounds and noises I'm not sure exactly what he plays. Anyway, I like what I see on PULSE.
