Pianist Walter Murphy studied jazz and classical piano at the Manhattan School of Music and was an arranger for Doc Severinsen and The Tonight Show orchestra. He had a moment of pop stardom in 1976 with the song "A Fifth of Beethoven." It topped the pop charts and reached number ten on the RB side. Murphy soon returned to his more familiar surroundings.
He recorded classical hits in new arrangements, funky style.
That probably explains why we are only coming up with only that one hit....15 minutes of fame.
As far as not responding to post ...it wasn't you . What I meant was I posted but maybe as a guest so it never got to the board and therfore was not seen. I must have been asleep at the wheel not to have noticed. Now that I have a little more information. Here in Rochester we also have a famous school of music...Eastman School Of Music. Doc plays here many times. Maybe I can find something. I'm real good at diging things up.
Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.
