Perhaps my musical education is not what it should be, but a quick search for "album 'one instrument'" didn't seem show this idea. Basically you take one instrument (piano) and have various musicians play music from their own genres on that particular piano. You might start off with a jazz player, then switch to a classical music player, then rockabilly, gospel, traditional, blues, avant-gard, etc. Ideally the players would be established artists. The point is: one piano can sound so very different in the hands of good musicians. I suppose other albums can be done for the violin and guitar.
