Lately, I've found myself listening to the Led Zeppelin track "Boogie with Stu," from the Physical Graffiti album, pretty much nonstop. Although I'd heard the piece before, recently I've been discovering just how much fun it is, and hence, I'm looking for recommendations of songs/albums that have a similar style/feel (uptempo, danceable, piano boogie, etc., but preferably instrumental and available via iTunes).
FWIW, I'm aware that Ian Stewart (of the song title) played piano on this track, that he worked with the Rolling Stones occasionally as well as with Charlie Watts' Rocket 88 jazz band in the '70s-'80s, and that he died prematurely in the mid-'80s, but I'm not concerned exclusively on his recordings alone. Pretty clearly Stewart worked consciously from a larger musical tradition, just one that I'm not as familiar with.
