I'll submit a couple of options.

Tarkus, and Blow By Blow.

Regarding Blow By Blow....Max is the consummate support player with a few solos tossed in.
I suppose my age has influenced my choices....I know that there are countless options.


What you got?

Emerson was "The Man!" I think my favorite was "The Endless Enigma Pt. 1" thru "Fugue" and "The Endless Enigma Pt. 2" from the Trilogy album.

I always called that song "The Endless Enema." It was just too obvious to ignore.

For peeanner playing, Terry "T" Lavitz (RIP) of Dixie Dregs, Jazz is Dead, Widespread Panic, etc., fame is the guy.

Another guy with a similar style is Bruce Hornsby. Great player.

Roly,...glad you came along to 'attempt' to revive the FDP Keyboard Forum..!!...

..there are not many members here that contribute to this part of the FDP...It is understood that Fender is most closely associated with guitars and guitar amplifiers, even though, for a time, Fender built and marketed the "Fender Rhodes" keyboard after acquiring the brand from Harold Rhodes. I own one of those vintage keyboards and hope to keep it viable until it is time to pass it on.

I also own a vintage Fender Showman amplifier that I use to amplify the Rhodes...the combination sound is 'classic' to say the least... that amplifier is what initially attracted me to the FDP in pursuit of information with respect to proper restoration etc.

...in reference to Keith Emerson...to me he was the quintessential "rock keyboard artist"..combining the correct amount of theatrics into their live performances but at the same time infusing serious classical influences into their repertoire.

ELP were pioneers with respect to interjecting classical influences from the European Masters into popular music which had been predominately, and to some extent, continues to be dominated by african culture.

I agree that some of Emerson's music can be somewhat "difficult" to listen to...only in that it demands complete attention to detail...not something to put on whilst piddeling about...one must actively listen to what he is saying in order to appreciate his statement.

Keith was at the forefront of music technology when he incorporated the Moog Synthesizer into his music and created the first and still iconic synthesizer "Lucky Man" solo.

In the studio Keith was an uncompromising genius when it came to arrangements and performance...that is what ultimately led to the dissolution of Emerson Lake & Palmer...

Keith Emerson proved that a keyboard artist could "FRONT" a popular rock band and pack modern stadiums and arenas with music fans.

..as to Peegoo's reference to 'T Lavitz' and 'Bruce Hornsby'...both are monumental influences within the popular music idiom...and excellent examples of talented keyboard artists...I will also mention Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater fame however....
..none measure up to the stature of Mr. Emerson..!!!!

Love Max Middleton and I think I've already said that on earlier posts to this forum.

Like Rick Wakeman too.
