Maybe the most famous solo keyboardists, none of them is strictly progressive, but both two are in P.A. Who of them is closer to the progressive feel?

While both are in Prog Related, I consider both to have been "progressive" (approach to music), and I think one could say that both have made progressive music, and I consider both to have made "Prog" category suitable albums under the purview of this site. For example, Vangelis' Hypothesis and Dragon (also include L"Apocalypse des Animaux) and Jarre's Oxygene and Equinoxe.

Guess it partially mean what you mean by progressive.  I can't say for sure which artist progressed music more, nor would I say which had a more progressive approach to music. I went with Vangelis, not just for his "solo" work (early period particularly), but also for his work with Aphrodite's Child.

Vangelis gets my vote because of Aphrodites Child and his work with Jon Anderson. Really like JMJ's work as well.

I like Vangelis much more. He has played more styles than JMJ. I think he could be perfect for Yes when Wakeman left and Moraz (great player) took his place.

Vangelis for me, predominently because of his work with Anderson.

Vangelis.

Isao Tomita comes to mind as a solo keyboardist as well and has an extensive library.

Vangelis has a much more diverse discography (albedo is more jazz-rock than electronic music !)
I love more albums by Vangelis than by JMJ.
So my vote goes to Vangelis.

I like much both two, and I mus admit that Vangelis has more prog past than Jarre. But at this time J.M.Jarre's music attracts me more. So  beyond the prog elements I will go with J.M.Jarre.

Vangelis, because of albums like Heaven and Hell, El Greco and Mythodea which are pushing the boundaries of prog in that they incorporate Opera/Oratorium in the best way possible...

I find the music of Vangelis more progressive but I enjoy more the music of JMJ.I listened to a lot of TD and Vangelis and when I heard for the1st time Oxygene I was blown away

Jean Michel and his synthesizing mayhem. Vangelis also have some great stuff but too often sounds 'sweet' or 'new agey' for my taste.

Voted for Vangelis. He had some great period in 70-s, later his works became just melodic well orchestrated synth-pop or new age. Jarre always was synth-pop musician for me.

yes a genious versus and entrepenuerial activist. Both admirable but Vangelis will leave most creativity to dust especially 200 years from now :-)

Tomita's Chicks really cracks me up.  A man not known for original works but worthy of kudos for original interpretations.

LOL
Walter/Wendy Carlos got a reputation for synth interpretations of classical pieces, but this is sheer genius:

Jarre for me, easily.  My experience with Vangelis is that he's too 'soundtracky' for my personal tastes.  Jarre on the other hand was one of my first influences.  On a somwehat related note, Tomita never did anything for me.  I thought his patch selection was too gimickey and actually detracted from the listening experience.  Granted, I don't know that he actually did his own music, so maybe making it gimickey was the best way to go.
