Oh hello! I thought we'd probably driven everyone else away and there were just four of us left; I was wondering what obscenities or non PC statements I could test this with...although not yet because I'm still finding it all very stimulating.
this thread is heading for a record no. of posts so I cant remember accurately if somone mentioned about an organ sounding 'wooden'. wot abaht this old piece which for me is one of the best smooth swinger toons from deep bass right up. Has a great effect particularly when u have a long line of people processing in step... they start to sway with the waves from the organ.
I wonder whether a 48 or 56 button job could not also do the business with this = with some powerful elec amplification of course. Or adding person with a bass tina to do the organ pedals?
wotever, it's great to listen to
PS I desperately want to hear but cant get Njurkowski's Vivaldi to load -- http://www.rowlhouse...o/VivaldiAm.mp3
Yes it was me; I said the organ was wooden due to it's huge mechanism, and ol' Widor's party piece (never knew it had a W; I'd have spelled it Vidor...) doesn't change my view. Yes it is fun, but it's still got that 'triumph of Man over machine' feeling, if you ask me, and I wouldn't pick it as a personal favourite. I'd have thought you could do it, although you'd need to trim the music a bit. I think it uses a lot of the extreme range of the organ. Perhaps it would make a good concertina band piece, alternatively?
Credit where credit's due; that's Danny C that did that recording, not Nick J. Both the link in Danny's post and the one you quote work fine for me so I don't know what you do next? It's worth hearing though.
