Fanfare For The Uncommon Man: Official Keith Emerson Tribute Concert 2 DVD / 2 CD Box Set

Review by Gary Hill

In 2016 there was a concert held as a tribute to Keith Emerson. This amazing package captures that concert. This includes the concert on one DVD and also an audio recording of the show on two CDs. A second DVD is included with bonus features highlighted by interview segments.

The concert was a powerhouse show that included music from various points in Emerson's career from The Nice to ELP and more. The list of musicians includes people like Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, Jordan Rudess, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Marc Bonilla and more. It's such a powerful concert, and the passion for the work of Emerson shows threw in every performance. I can't imagine a better tribute to Mr. Emerson than this, and the whole package is a class act.

You will find bonus video footage of this release available at the Music Street Journal Youtube channel here:
