Jazz Piano Music for Relaxation
The piano has played a central role in jazz music since its inception. Piano masters have pushed the boundaries of the genre in both solo and ensemble settings, expanding the possibilities of jazz music.
Calm’s relaxing Jazz Piano playlist celebrates the greatest players from the 1930s to today’s masters, featuring some of the most iconic songs jazz has produced.
Jazz Piano is filled with character. It is music that will inspire you, great music to study and focus to, relaxing music for a dinner party, or just to unwind after work. It lets you lean back and take a journey through the history of jazz music.
You’ll hear the entire evolution of jazz music; pianists such as Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell elevate the sound of bebop in the 1940s. Bill Evans takes that sound and adds a distinct classical influence. Canadian icon, Oscar Peterson, pushes the rhythmic variations forward. Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett add elements of rock and funk in the 1970s to create smooth jazz fusion. Modern pianists like Cyrus Chestnut, Iiro Rantala, and Stefano Bollani continue expanding the boundaries of jazz music.
Lose yourself in this beautiful calm music channel and marvel at what these masters do with the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements of the piano.
