The Nice ... Karelia Suite Live 1969The Nice (Keith Emerson) - Karelia Suite 1969 using Hammond L100 with Leslie cabinets.
The video shows Emerson throwing his L100 about and using the on/off switch to create the great rock effects that he has become known for - Emerson had previously learnt about these 'tricks' some years earlier from the legendary organist Don Shinn who played organ with The Soul Agents.
Keith Emerson acknowledges that Don Shinn was a pioneer within the progressive rock movement during the late 60's and that he, Shinn, had a major influence on Emerson's style of playing.

The Nice, die in ihrem Musikstil neben Jazz und Rock auch klassische Musik vereinten, mit "Hang On To A Dream" live im Beat Club am 25.10.1969.
The British progressive rock group The Nice is best known for their combination of different music styles like rock, jazz and classical music and relevant adaptions: "America" by Leonard Bernstein, "Karelia Suite" by Jean Sibelius, "Brandenburg Concerto No. 3" by Johann Sebastian Bach and others. And also for the controversy of burning an American flag during the live performance of Bersteins America.

The Nice - Country Pie - Live Essen 1969A black and white clip of The Nice, performing Bob Dylan's Country Pie at the Song Days Festival in Essen, Germany, on October11th, 1969. I know this track from their Five Bridges album, but this version seems a little slower and with just a bit more swing. The sound is mixed a little in favour of Emerson, with Lee Jackson's vocals being lowest in the mix (probably few complaints there right?) and the eternally underrated Brian Davidson's drums being pretty audible at all times. Love that overdriven organ tone. I quite liked what The Nice had going on, with Davidson's jazzy drumming having a swing and, dare I say groove, missing from Carl Palmer's technical chatter. Lee Jackson's elastic Vox bass tone was a million miles away from the more conventional Fender bass tones of the day. Emerson clearly had his sight on higher matters, dragging classical repertoire into the rock field and deftly throwing in quotes left right and centre. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto appears on this Bob Dylan cover!
