Orange Peel (Reuben Wilson) - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Clonewheel Organ Clavia

YouTube via rounder2u. Nice bass.
"Here is my arrangement of 'Orange Peel'.
This organ funk song comes from the great organist Reuben Wilson's record 'Blue Mode', released in 1969.

The song is built upon a syncopated bassline keeping the groove in C at all times, and to that a 4 bar melody riff/melody phrase is added. The melody phrase is played by a saxophone on the original recording. I play the melody phrase chorded, first after the bass line intro, then after the first solo chorus and during the ending. The rest of the song is filled up with riffs of my own, and I will also take the blame for the repeated one note right hand Intro and the one note right hand Outro :-)

The organ is a Clavia Nord C1 - a Hammond B-3 clonewheel organ.

Nord C1 Registrations and Settings:
Upper 88 0800 000. No Vibrato/Chorus. Percussion On, Soft, Fast, Second.
