Korla Pandit: Miserlou (1951)

May 15, 2008

And now for something completely different. I love how, in the first transition, he slaps the lower manual to emulate a drum. He keeps WATCHING me through the whole piece, feels almost creepy.

I wonder what the history of performers playing 2 keyboards at the same time is? People around in the 1970s remember Keith Emerson playing an entire stage of keyboards. Here Korla Pandit amazes us with his multi-keyboard virtuosity and exotic scales and sounds.
