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 - America 1968The Nice - America 1968
The Nice was an English progressive rock band from the 1960s, known for their unique blend of rock, jazz and classical music. Their debut album, The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack was released in 1967 to immediate acclaim; it is often considered the first progressive rock album.
The Nice are also a forerunner of the much more widely known Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
The Nice consisted initially of keyboardist Keith Emerson, bassist/vocalist Lee Jackson, drummer Brian Davison, and guitarist David O'List, more commonly known
as "Davy". All the members of the band are from England.
This song is an arrangement of Leonard Bernstein's "America" which Emerson described as the first ever instrumental protest song.
