PostSubject: Jon Lord   Fri Jul 25, 2014 8:07 pm

30 years before Tarja and Nightwish (plus others) began the musical process that would become 'Symphonic Metal' there was Jon Lord. Jon Lord (9 June 1941 - 16 July 2012) was an English composer, pianist, and Hammond organ player known for his pioneering work in fusing rock with classical or baroque forms, especially with Deep Purple, as well as Whitesnake, Paice Ashton Lord, The Artwoods, and The Flower Pot Men.


Lord's "Concerto For Group and Orchestra" (in 1969) was one of rock's earliest attempts to fuse two distinct musical idioms. Performed live at the Royal Albert Hall on 24 September 1969), it was recorded by the BBC and later released as an album. The Concerto gave Deep Purple its first highly publicised taste of mainstream fame and gave Lord the confidence to believe that his experiment and his compositional skill had a future, as well as giving Lord the opportunity to work with established classical figures, such as conductor Sir Malcolm Arnold (knighted in 1993), who brought his formidable skills to bear by helping Lord realise the work and to protect him from the inevitable disdain of the older members of the orchestra.

The upcoming release from EarMUSIC celebrates the musical life of a true pioneer. I'm getting the box set....I post it here because it may be of interest to others, too.

"The Sunflower Jam will donate all royalties out of the CD, DVD and Blu-Ray to The Jon Lord fellowship."
