Good to see mention of two of my all-time fave piano albums, Evans' Explorations and Monk's Thelonious Alone. You could easily find your (or my) 20 great Jazz moments listening to those two masterworks only. Picking "bests" is a mug's game (as they used to say in hardboiled mysteries). But great moments? Much more reasonable and expansive/inclusive. (Nobody asked, but here are two more piano-driven albums I venerate: Ellington's Piano in the Background, where his playing is really front and center in the orchestra sessions, and Teddy Wilson's And Then They Wrote.) Keep on plunkin'!
