Keith Emerson at 69: Still Creating Keyboard Magic

Happy (belated) birthday to Keith Emerson, born on November 2, 1944 in Yorkshire, England.

Best known for his work with Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Keith continues his musical wizardry with his Keith Emerson Band (consisting of Marc Bonilla on guitar and vocals, Travis Davis on bass and Tony Pia on drums).

The band released The Three Fates Project last fall.

According to an online review of the album, Marc Bonilla says the title came from the coming together of three worlds: the keyboards and compositions of Emerson, the guitar and writing of Bonilla, and the conducting of Terje Mikkelsen with the 70-piece Münchner Rundfunkorchester.

The resulting hybrid, Bonilla believes, is unique in music history.

Keith Emerson says “without doubt I consider this to be the most important album since the ELP days.”

Here’s a taste:
