Hello again progressive music lovers.

I can't think of a better way to start this thread than with the grand masters of the progressive music genre: Yes...

I'm glad I was able to still find this.

This is the third movement of Keith Emerson's "Piano Concerto #1" played by the "Barock Project."

For my money, this is the greatest symphonic piece ever written.

Now, I will post the concerto with Emerson and the Orchestra, I'm not sure if it's the LSO or the hand-picked orchestra the guys put together or perhaps the Canadian Symphony Orchestra, but it's soon to come.

Oh, and I'll be sure to put up ELP's "Pirates."

But this is wonderful in it's own right!

Thx :)

Here's ELP doing "Pirates" in Montreal in 1977.

I like that: a whole audience and orchestra of people dressed in their best formalwear and there's Carl with no shirt! :D

"No shirt, no shoes, no service!"

("But I'm with the band, man!")

Second half in next post.

Now, why the producers of "Pirates Of The Caribbean" weren't smart enough to work that into the movie, I'll never know. :think:

Thx :)

Now here's "Pirates" by the Barock Project and I have never heard this before, so let's see their interpretation, I can't wait! :popcorn:

Can't say I'm keen on the singer (I think he's been doing too much Wayne Newton. :think:) and what happened to the strings?

But that bass player, drummer and especially keyboard player are out of this world, they certainly earn their keep!

And you guessed it, Emerson's Piano Concerto with Emerson is next. :)

Thx :)

I was looking for a Bill Bruford interview, some of the insights he had on the early days of the progressive rock movement and came across this:

I'm not sure, but the bits I was looking for might be in there somewhere.

Still though, for someone wondering what progressive rock is about or means, this should fit the bill.

Thx :)
