Jazz Sounds for Electro 5D

Postby GusIsSkylark » 20 Sep 2017, 15:34

Greetings everyone!

What recommendations can you give me for Grand, Upright and Electric Pianos for jazz settings? Think Weather Report style of playing.
Also what is your organ drawbar configurations? Looking for mostly blues styles, think Jimmy Smith and Duane Allman kind of feel.

Thanks a lot,

Welcome to the forum.
Re Weather Report sounds: you are talking about Joe Zawinal. I have often listened to Weather Report songs, and thought "oh my gosh, what the heck is that sound, and which musician is it coming from, and how are they making that noise? It took me a while to realize that many of the bass-ish sounds were coming from Zawinal instead of Jaco, and that the noises that sounded like an electric guitar were coming from Jaco.

There was a wonderful video I saw of Weather Report performing "Birdland" live, which shows Zawinal's rig and how the band made the noises for that song.

So I think the question of how to generate keys sounds like Zawinal is unanswerable.

Achieving drawbar settings for blues songs will be a much more achievable goal, but there are others who are way smarter than me for that.
