Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments

Mailbag: “Jump”

April 29, 2010


Dear Michael,

Do the serious organists have any affection for the Van Halen song, “Jump”?
It prominently features a synthesizer emulating a pipe organ.
Do they ever play this song on the pipe organ?
Here’s a link to the song on YouTube:
Van Halen - Jump.

R.E.,

Have never heard of it being done…though I am not omniscient. Perhaps someone else knows better?
