A great rock and roll pianist and an inspiration to many. I first noticed him on the Joe Cocker clip of The Letter, doing his imperturbable deadpan. Had a great knack with tasteful fills so that there was always just the right amount of piano. RIP Leon.
There’s an excellent TIDAL playlist: “Leon Russell: An Introduction”. Well worth a listen.
Listening to “Life Journey” now…Georgia on my Mind…
RIP Leon Russell. 2016 has been a harsh year.
