3155. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - The Three Fates
From: Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Year: 1970; Genre: Progressive Rock/classical
Last night I learned that Keith Emerson took his own life a couple days ago after struggling with physical ailments. It's sad on so many levels to lose such a monumental keyboardist/musician/writer/arranger of his talent; he will surely be missed without a doubt; may he rest in peace.
Anyway, whilst thinking about a good track to choose I came across this suite from Emerson, Lake & Palmer's first album based on the Three Fates of Greek Myth: Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. It's mostly Keith Emerson's keyboard work on both a grand pipe organ and piano all over the place stylistically all the way from classical to jazz, hard rock, and everything in between; almost 8 minutes of getting to hear a master musician play on his chosen instrument.

Hear The Three Fates on YouTube.
