    Such a melodic player is Jon Lord, probably the most melodic of all the rock keyboard players & that is saying something, considering the other great players out there!

    Lovely to see this.

    Not sure about the first song, but the second one is “A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square”

    Sadly missed but what treasured memories.

    First song is “I’m in the mood for love”, written by the great Jimmy McHugh (I believe)


    So beautifully played 🙂
