I am a Steinway and Sons artist, have sold millions of recordings and had over 30 White House performances. Requests were made at a White House party for some Stevie Wonder tunes so I immediately pulled out my iPad, summoned Musicnotes and bought sheet music for "Overjoyed" and "Ribbon in the Sky". Your company has made me look great in so many performances. Thank you for this fabulous gift musicnotes is to performers.

As a piano bar performer I must try to play all requests. I need the sheet music now, today, while it is hot and can earn me tips. I don't have time to find it in a collection or something containing songs I already have, or to wait for the Post Office to deliver it to me. With Musicnotes I can order it, pay for it, and have it in minutes. I can use the song that night & make a better living.

What do we know about Jon Lord? Memories for Keyboardist DEEP PURPLE | Culture
Perhaps, not everyone knows that it was Lord, and not the troublemaker-guitarist Blackmore or the vociferous Gillan, who was the central core of the group, its bond and, in fact, the oldest member. It was he who was at the base of DEEP PURPLE from the moment when a neighbor in a rented apartment - Chris Curtis - carried away John with the idea of founding a progressive rock band. Chris muddied the project, found producers, but then abandoned the idea. But the Lord remained. nine0003
Even after the appearance of Ritchie Blackmore, Lord remained the main ideologue and helmsman of DEEP PURPLE of the 1960s (though he was also the oldest in the group). Then John actively wrote songs, did all the arrangements and in some places even sang along. His organ sounded on recordings equal to the frantic Blackmore guitar. It is enough to listen to such songs as "Anthen", "Blind", "April".
Ritchie Blackmore on "April":
“I was born this month. At first I had just a little random melody. I showed it to John and he came up with a "classic" piece for the middle part of the composition. At twenty-five, I had never heard anything like it. It was bold enough for the time."
The pinnacle of Jon Lord's personal ambitions in DEEP PURPLE was the so-called Concerto for Group and Orchestra. The fact is that our hero was brought up on classical music from early childhood (his father was a saxophonist), adored Tchaikovsky, Bach, Grieg, Dvorak and planned to make a career in this direction (for which he graduated from the London Royal College of Music). At the same time, he was fond of theater (he studied at the School of Stage Speech) and even managed to work in a law office, where he heard rockers such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly on the radio. nine0003
As rock music emerged from its narrow shores in the 1960s and spread out into a wide tide, picking up a variety of styles and currents, John decided that this was the best suited for self-realization. Already in the early works of DEEP PURPLE one can hear this desire of the Lord to weave the classics into the rock format. And in 1969, he was ripe for a risky and revolutionary idea - to write a suite in which a rock band would play with a symphony orchestra. nine0003
What is revolutionary about this? - you ask. What about the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper? What about PROCOL HARUM and MOODY BLUES? But the thing is, Lord wasn't going to use the orchestra just to spice up a rock song. His goal was to make classical and rock sound on an equal footing, and to find common ground on an equal footing. The crazy idea was supported by the conductor Malcolm Arnold. But the members of the orchestra itself played with the "hairies" obviously without pleasure. nine0003
“I had a little Vox amp and every time I started playing these guys just plugged their ears: 'Too loud'! So I'm trying to make the audience hear me, and these violinists are sitting next to me with their fingers in their ears. You can imagine how much this inspired me."
"Group concert with orchestra" didn't bring any money to the group, but made noise. However, Blackmore and the newly appeared Gillan realized that it was not worth further indulging Lord's ambitions, and stated that they wanted more hard and rock music. Jon Lord did not resist, the group was more important for him than personal ambitions. In addition, he greatly respected the talent and flair of the guitarist and vocalist of DEEP PURPLE. nine0003
“If there's ever a PURPLE formula, it's Gillan's voice, Richie's guitar. The rest is not so important, and the structure of the song does not matter. Richie will always find the right riff, and Gillan will always find his bearings in any song. "
As a result, the famous album "In Rock" was born - one of the pillars of the "hard rock" style. Lord, although he faded into the shadow of Blackmore and Gillan, his organ remained the "calling card" of the group's style (as well as branded inclusions of classics in the fabric of heavy rock). John's passages sounded convincing, dense and powerful even against the backdrop of Richie's frenetic guitar (just listen to "Speed King", "Highway Star", "Child in Time", "Fireball", "Pictures Of Home"). nine0003
“I'm starting to understand what the word sensuality means. I have always been a cold organist. Technically competent, but without a drop of feeling. I learned a lot from our guitarist Richie and I learned a lot from drummer Ian. …Actually, Richie is actually a big fan of classical music. But on stage, he is good at hiding that side of his personality (laughs).” nine0003
It must be said that the keyboardist's first and constant love was the Hammond electric organ, with which he did not part even when his colleagues switched to synthesizers. However, John continued to play the piano as well, so that, as he said, "the fingers did not become lazy" .
Despite the fact that in the 1970s Lorde was no longer the main music ideologist of the group, it was he who remained its unifying center. His suave manner, tact and integrity have made him the main peacemaker for almost the entire history of DEEP PURPLE. nine0003
“I've always been one of the quietest in the group, the most phlegmatic. That is why they often turned to me: “Listen, otherwise you think, John, about this and that ?! Here we have different opinions. Probably, I'll hit him in the eye?..' Forces, emotions were spent on 'peacemaking'...”.
Sometimes the strength of the Lord's persuasion was not enough. But even when they left the group - first Gillan with bassist Glover, and then Blackmore himself - John tried to save the group to the last. In fact, he and drummer Ian Paice were the only permanent members of DEEP PURPLE. In addition, they are friendly and even married to twin sisters. nine0003
“Moreover, each of us is sure that he chose the best one ... The twins are very faithful to each other: if my wife left somewhere, then her sister did not forget to call and find out how things were going whether you need help. So Ian and I, in general, married favorably - we got not one wife, but two!
It's funny that in 1973, Lord took David Coverdale to replace Gillan, and after the breakup of DEEP PURPLE, Coverdale took Lord as keyboard player in his band WHITESNAKE. At 19'84 DEEP PURPLE reunited and John remained with the band until 2002. At the same time, throughout the band's career, Lord did not forget about his old passion and released solo albums, where he continued to forge links between classics and rock.
“Sometimes people say to me: how can you play this music when you are also making completely different music? How can you love rock music and classical music? To me it sounds like someone is asking: how can you eat meat if you eat potatoes? Now, after every concert, I only listen to classical music in my bathroom. Without Mozart, I probably would have died a long time ago and would have been lying in the cemetery!” nine0151
In 1999, John celebrated the 30th anniversary of his "Concerto for Group and Orchestra" and again performed it in public. Interestingly, the lost score was literally restored by ear by the Danish musician Mojo de Goeij. True, like last time, one elderly violinist strictly told bassist Glover not to “stun” her by chance, but after the concert she was satisfied. nine0003
“After 30 years, this music came back and changed my life again… It gave me the courage to leave and pursue a new career outside of a rock band.”
In recent years, Lord has completely gone into solo work - in many ways difficult and incomprehensible to an ordinary rock music lover.
