I love the guitar discussions, but what are some of your favorite keyboard solos ? One of my fave's is Bernie Worrell's on Sco-Mule off the Deepest End DVD.

I'll be the first to post these two:

Layla and Jessica!


Off the top of my head I also like Keith Godchaux's from the 5-8-77 Morning Dew, Butch Taylor from "Lie In Our Graves" (DMB) at The Gorge (9-8-2002 I think), and the intro to Soulshine (also Bernie Worrell, right?) on "Live...With a Little Help From Our Friends".

Chuck's solo on Old Love unplugged is an all-timer IMO

I don't know why I didn't mention this one first, but I once had a bootleg Mule New Year's Eve show ( I'm not sure of the year but it was with Woody ). Chuck Leavell was with them and did some blistering work on "Almost Cut My Hair".

Not what you had in mind on this thread, but close to my heart anyway.....

In early 1938, Goodman's band was brought to Carnegie Hall as somewhat of a joke by some of the super-rich as somewhat of comic relief during the depression, cold winter, rumors of war in Europe. Kind of a minstrel show. They ended up winning over the audience, their big finale was a song called Sing Sing Sing. Kinda' like Whipping Post of 1938. As the song wound down, concert approaching it's end, Goodman pointed toward the piano player, Jess Stacy, and said, "Take it." Stacy went through four choruses, right off the top of his head, in front of a somewhat hostile audience. Threw in some Beethoven, Rachmaninov, just to show the longhairs that came to mock that he could do that too. Very creative. I often think of that when listening to Duane's Liz Reed solo.

I'd say your comment definitely pertains to this topic...thanks for the cool history lesson.

Ray Manzarek ...his solos and interplay with Kreiger cooked...
particularly "Light My Fire" and "Riders of the Storm". Don't
know how many takes they usually recorded ... but I wouldn't
guess many because their instrumental breaks sound almost like
jams.

1st that comes to mind is the piano coda from Layla - hands down
Ray Manzerek - Riders on the Storm would be up here, too
Steve Winwood - Gimme Some Lovin

Leon Russell - have heard him get down on a number of tunes

Billy Preston

Keith Emerson

Rick Wakeman, Yessongs, "Excerpts from The Six Wives of Henry VIII," especially when he goes off on the Moog.

Can't remember which song, but David Sancious did a really cool solo while touring in Clapton's band. It was the tour that was recorded that became the One More Car, One More Rider album. Maybe "Going Down Slow"??

Always have liked Billy Preston's solo on The Beatles' "Get Back".

Of course, Chuck's "Jessica" & "High Falls" solos stand out in my head

The one of Leon Russell's that stands out is on the Leon Live album during "Out In The Woods".

Chris Stainton's solo with Clapton's band on "They're Red Hot"

Even though it is short & simple, I just LOVE Gregg's B-3 thing in Liz Reed on the Fillmore album.

John Mayall's solo piano track "Boogie Albert".

Anything by Jimmy Smith or Jack McDuff.

And, those Chico Marx piano pieces during Marx Brothers movies.

Well, not getting into all of them here, but, since they haven't been mentioned yet;
John Lord of Deep Purple on "Lazy" from Machine Head, and Greg Rolie of Santana on "Soul Sacrifice"

Emerson, Lake, & Palmer "Lucky Man"

That old Moog synthesizer at the end gets me every time.

Was kidding about Johnny - although I met him in a bar in Vermont one night and he seemed like a great guy.

I always loved Emerson, but my favorites in the Southern genre, outside our heroes, are Heard it in a Love Song and the solo in Call Me the Breeze.

In case you care what I like in the ABB repertoire, well, my daughter Jessica knows which one is my favorite - and she has the free spirited personality I think Richard had in mind when he wrote the song.

Greg
