AARON EMERSON- FANFARE FOR THE COMMON MAN
Recently Aaron Emerson, the son of Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, traveled all the way from the UK to pay us a visit. EMEAPP is the caretaker of many of Keith’s instruments throughout his career, from his famous Moog synthesizer to battle-scarred Hammond organs and everything else in between. Aaron wanted to come over and record some audio and video for an upcoming re-release of an ELP recording and to utilize several of his father’s instruments. During a break, we asked Aaron if he’d be willing to throw down on his father’s 1972 Steinway Model D, our most recently acquired piece of Keith’s gear. He graciously obliged our request and what resulted was an emotional and highly personal solo performance of his own arrangement of Aaron Copland’s Fanfare For The Common Man, recorded by ELP for their Works Vol. 1 album in 1977.
