This is where Iโ€™m at as well. I have to say there are more mofos on the US side, but I resonate more with UK playing.

Iโ€™ve always found this surprising incidentally, for all its inflated ego outside music US piano is surprisingly low testo. I canโ€™t say I hear the nation in their pianists, except maybe Wild.
