The Magic of Don Lee Ellis

Postby Mike Bracchi » 08 Feb 2015 17:30

Wotcha folks,

A short film by Anson Musselman of Don Lee Ellis, Organist.

For over five decades, Don Lee Ellis traveled the world, wowing audiences all over Europe, the United States and Asia with his skills as a master concert organ virtuoso. Don's primary instruments were the Hammond Concorde and X-66, but he has also performed on a Wurlitzer Pipe Organ from New York's famed Paramount Theater, and the Louis XIV-era pipe organ in the chapel at the Palace of Versailles.

Don's fluid and sometimes frenetic style combines the intricacies of classical orchestral music with modern and jazz influences.

This is a biography of the man who has entertained and inspired countless others throughout his career and life.

A great film :D
