Jon Lord - Gemini Suite album review

Album Review

Reissue of late Deep Purple keyboard player’s classical-rock fusion record

Back in 1971, Jon Lord took a much more leading role in Deep Purple, and was able to push through projects such as 1969’s Concerto For Group And Orchestra, an ambitious attempt to solder his dual backgrounds in orchestral music and blues-based heavy rock. It seemed quite logical at the time; after all, The Who were in the process of inaugurating rock opera, and the idea of the adolescent medium of rock graduating to a higher plane of sophistication felt like a proper one for serious musicians to pursue.
