    There are so many but three stand out for me: Olivier Latry: simply a genius, David Briggs again a genius, especially at improvisation and lastly Ian Tracey of Liverpool for being not only a wonderful player but a truly lovely guy whose open door policy to playing the mighty Liverpool Anglican has enabled many to enjoy that wonderful organ while visiting the city. I rate Roger Sayer, now at Temple Church as being one of the most exciting and underrated performers out there too. Oh one other who I really think is special: Paul Jacobs: terrific player.

    It seems each of us has his or her favorite pipe organist depending on the music, the style, the organ and upon popularity -or even looks. Right now I seen to be excited by the improvisations of Sophie-Veronique Cauchefer-Choplin. She's a really happy little ball of amazing genius and seems to be able to handle even the San Sulpice organ. The main thing is I like organists who have lots of fun playing and performing. And I don't care whether they are famous or not. Remember, most pipe organists don't make much money at all, anyway.

    Timmy, you might have forgotten Barbara Dennerheim. She's even played jazz on that Aeolian-Skinner behemoth at Riverside Church in NY and knocked 'em dead. Did you know that there is a CD of Fats Waller at the organ. Two engineers reworked a Wurlitzer to play his piano and organ rolls and its one of my favorite albums.
