    Blue Blazes

    This probably requires a fast theater organ or an electronic organ. Ideally, it should be a bit faster than recorded, but it has some excruciatingly difficult passages regardless of speed. Best described as quasi boogie woogie. Boogie was quite popular when I was a youngster in the thirties and forties of the last century. Some was good, much was trash. Pinetop Smith's Boogie is still one of my favorites.

    Blue Blazes

    It is a bit loud, so be careful.


    The mp3 uses GPO organ and Fatar midi keyboard.

    Another masterpiece, Richard!

    Wow!! Great polyrythmic contrasts. Your hands and feet are working at full throttle.

    Electrifying GPO church!


    More!

    Aptly named, indeed, Richard -- quite a ride!

    This would be dynamite on a big ol' theater organ:
    There are quite a few of these still around that
    have been restored and preserved.

    Best,

    That's some wild and crazy boogie. You sure come up with the different music.

    That organ sure is flying around.
