Hi,

Melotron ... the best player ... and did not just use it for "effect" like so many others, was the keyboard player for Barclay James Harvest ... far and away ... a serious melotron player instead of just an effect in a song or two. I don't remember his name ... Wooly Wolstenholme?

Bit's got it about right.  Many of the greatest players of all time are not that well known.  And many who populate the lists above are very good at what they do...but not nearly the avatar of their instrument.  Have you heard of Lenny Breau?  Chuck Loeb?  Chris Theile?  Jimmy Herring?  Oteil Burbridge?  Art Tatum?  Just to name a few off the top of my head.  I've got nothing against most all of the folks listed above but the list should pretty long, really, before you get to folks like Jon Anderson, Jack Bruce or Ian Anderson.  V-e-r-y long indeed.

Frank Zappa - one of the best rock composers ever if we would only have enough guts to listen to it and realize that we're hearing a ... concept on top of another ... and sometimes it sounds dissonant to our melodic/rnr ear ... over the years the music has mellowed a little and is more accessible ... must see is Zappa plays Zappa. It's excellent and end of conversation.


Agreed - the finest touring ensemble out there today.  Conversation ended.

Through anecdotes, since I've never actually heard them play, I think the greatest musicians ever are Beethoven, Mozart and Paganini.
Bass: Mel Schacher.
