Keith Emerson was one of Lee Evans, CEO of JAMBOX Entertainment Studios early inspirations to get into analog synths in the 70s.
Keith Emerson was a maniac and a genius on the keys. Whether on acoustic piano or flippin out on his modular Moog! He was an amazing player, one of the best of that era.
Being very accomplished, gifted and versatile, He also played the crap out of some inverted Bach pieces (meaning he climbed up on the lid of his grand piano and played pieces from the back of the piano , great contemporary 20th Century classical pieces, and even held his own playing jazz with the Great Jazz Pianist legend Oscar Peterson. Keith always intrigued. RIP Keith Emerson. Much Respect!
