What tunes would you love to hear Pat present next with the Orchestrion? I would absolutely LOVE to hear It’s For You. That tune digs up emotions of nostalgia, peace, and happiness that I’ve never even felt.

Bookmark and Share Yossarian has a good point. I think those two Orchestrion ballads would translate well into the group setting. ’Its For You’, I think this chart has turned alot of people on to PMG. I just think you need a true human voice that Nana V. had, that most human urgency timbres, to pull it off. That intro guitar sound and Lyle’s synth, oh my, that is so so part of the chart.

Bookmark and Share Antonia worked really well of the existing PM stuff I thought. But to be honest I think the Orchestrion music works best written specifically for that medium. I’ve come to love that CD, after a long period of not particularly loving it but I think the compositions and the way they came about are very much relevant to the orchestrion. I’d like to put the question the other way round and ask what Orch songs would work well for the group. For me that’s easy: the two ’ballads’ and Spirit of the Air. The highlight of the CD for me is the fantastic guitar solo, chord sequence, and rhythm section arrangement from Extensions... sublime (and amazing live).
