Recommend me some good music with piano being the main insturment. No Ben Folds, Tori Amos, Elton John, or Billy Joel.

I guess George Gershwin would be out of the questin as well.

queens of the stone age occasionally employ piano, but its usually just banging on the same notes over and over again

Keith Jarrett.

His son is one of my best friends, I grew up playing in bands with him. Name dropping!

Anyway, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Bruce Hornsby, Traffic.

I'm not sure I really understand the question. Do you just want popular music or are jazz and classical okay?

If you're looking for blues piano - Henry Butler and Corey Harris "Vu-Du Menz" is fantastic piano work; also check out Henry Butler's solo work like "Blues After Sunset". Other artists - Professor LongHair, Sunnyland Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Spann and Johnnie Johnson.

You can't have a discussion about piano players (or composers) without mentioning Thelonious Monk!
