Jazz piano faceoff - please vote

The thread below on jazz pianists prompted me to pose this poll question: Which performance below (linked) do you prefer, the Bill Charlap trio or the Dan Nimmer trio?


Nimmer is nearly 20 years younger so that's no knock on this kid but he has a ways to go to develop Charlap's touch and melodic drive.
I agree with Jonsher certainly about touch. Beyond that, Charlap has a harmonic development along with a technical virtuosity and fluidity that is considerably beyond Nimmer IMHO. Some of this can be attributed to different styles which is quite evident but not all of it. No knock on the kid for sure!

It is just great to see and hear that jazz continues to live through the dedication and passion of these talented musicians. Thanks for turning me on to Nimmer!!
