Umphrey’s McGee Debuts Emerson, Lake & Palmer Song In Honor Of Keith Emerson

first_imgYesterday, music fans everywhere were shocked by the news of Keith Emerson’s unfortunate passing. The keyboardist was a renowned musician, powering the melodies and progressive exploration of the rock trio Emerson Lake & Palmer. Certainly, a band like Umphrey’s McGee, known for a more progressive-leaning rock sound, would have been influenced by ELP’s tremendous works.With that in mind, Umphrey’s debuted a cover of “From The Beginning” in the encore, a song featured on ELP’s 1972 album, Trilogy. The classic tune was dedicated to the memory of Keith Emerson, and executed to perfection. The show featured many highlights, including a cover of Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” with beloved saxophonist Skerik. While we wait for media to emerge from the show, listen to the original version of “From The Beginning” below:You can also enjoy the second set-opening “All In Time” from the show, courtesy of Mark Masterson:  Check out the full setlist below, thanks to All Things Umphrey’s:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at The Moore Theatre, Seattle, WA – 3/11/16Set 1: October Rain > Conduit, Miss Tinkle’s Overture, Anchor Drops > Resolution > 2×2 > Little Gift > Alex’s HouseSet 2: All In Time > Attachments, Wappy Sprayberry > All In Time, The Crooked One > Mail Package, Can’t You Hear Me Knocking[1]Encore: From the Beginning[2] > In The Kitchen[1] with Skerik on saxophone[2] debut, Emerson, Lake & PalmerNotes: From the Beginning played in remembrance of Keith Emersonlast_img read more
