My personal synopsis of “silent” cinema organists is that they must have the brain capacity of a “rocket scientist”. Remembering all of the organ settings, watching the picture, reading sheet music and working the foot pedals is pure magic for all to enjoy AND remember! Although Mr. Carter has passed on, we still have the incomparable genius of organist Dennis James to savor.

And what a thrill to hear Mr. Carter play again. Thanks for posting this. This IS the sound of the silents. No one has ever done it better. How lucky we were to have been born in time to hear Mr. Carter play and accompany great films on so many occasions. He was the real deal – the genuine link to the sound of Hollywood’s fabulous movie palace era.
