Yes, Christmas is upon us and I’m writing a post about summertime. That boggles the mind, but I can always sneak in some Billy Preston, and frankly youtube is an addicting place when you start searching for that man. I recently finished a George Harrison tribute tour, and my role was….Billy Preston of course. Playing the Hammond organ is one thing, but playing his material is another, and also a humbling experience.
Halfway during this video mr. Preston does a stunning imitation of Ray Charles, make sure you don’t skip that.
