i forgot to mention in the post below that most of the maybeck series (about 40 cds) are now available from emusic (at https://www.emusic.com). they are the best learning resource for solo jazz piano i know. a lot of standards are played, so that helps, and many of the greats have recorded in the series. the piano is well recorded, and they really are a goldmine of ideas.
you can feel confident that the site is quite safe to visit, and there is a free 50 downloads to begin (about 6 or 7 of the maybeck series cds for nothing!). you can subscribe for a montha at a time - depending on the number of downloads - about us$12 to us$19 for 50 to 90 downloads per month. i have subscribed for a month, and left it for a while and re-subscribed when i found some more stuff that i wanted. they never ever pestered me to join, and i had no problem cancelling after a month. and of course, all of these downloads are completely legal!

they have a huge catalogue of solo jazz piano stuff - for instance, lots of chick coreas latest albums, many of the marion mcpartland piano jazz series from radio where she interviews (and plays duets with) lots of jazz greats, oscar, monty alexander, most of bill evans' albums, george shearing, as well as some of the newer guys - check out john taylor with singer norma winstone.

does anyone know of any other similar sites?
