9Richard Barbieri
10Rick Wakeman

All of these players are great but I personally believe Rick Wakeman is the best. If you need proof just listen to Fragile, Close to the Edge, Tales from Topographical Oceans, Going for the One; Anderson, Bruford, Wakemon, Howe; and his Life on Mars piano tribute to David Bowie.
