This has to be one of my favorite piano intros of all time!!:D Not to mention a great trumpet solo. What are some of your favorite piano intros?

You are right. These are great piano and trumpet solos. You can tell this band has been together awhile.

Thanks for sharing this,
-John

In pop music, Freddy Gambrell's intro on Benson's reworking of Leon Russell's "This Masquerade" comes to mind.

I also like the intro to King Curtis' "Do you have Soul Now?" I don't remember who played it--- was it Tommy Flanagan? It is on the "In a Jazz groove" Album.

+1 on Parkers Mood - and Bird's own soulful call after that is of course a classic. What about John Lewis on Bird's Barbados? Those simple little trills so completely set the mood.
I actually wouldn't call Roland Hannah's piano solo there an intro - he is really playing a sort of 'hors d'oevre' solo - a great one at that.
