The score for Boom
of the Tingling Strings

Boom of the Tingling Strings - Europe

May 31 2003 saw the European premier of Jon Lord's new orchestral piece Boom of the Tingling Strings at a concert in Luxembourg. A couple of people have told us what they thought.

 


A change of plan
Jon Lord aggravated an old ligamentous injury in his thumb at the last of three sold out performances at Sydney Opera House. This made playing classical piano almost impossible, but fortunately it didn't prevent Jon from playing Hammond organ. Thus, at the three solo dates at Melbourne, Sydney's The Basement and Coolum, Jon performed with The Hoochie Coochie Men, an Australian outfit featuring Bob Daisley (bass), Tim Gaze (guitar, vocals), Rob Grosser (drums, vocals) and Jim Conway (harmonica). The musical flavour at these three shows consisted of rock, blues and boogie. Turn it on up.
