Seeburg Celesta Super Orchestrion
by Stephen Kent Goodman (050413 MMDigest)

goodman_Celesta.jpg (27 kb) This is a notice to those of you who wanted to be informed when I would get finished with my one-of-a-kind Seeburg orchestrion playing Wurlitzer Mandolin PianOrchestra files, H rolls, G and 4X rolls and my own arrangements transcribed from genuine period dance orchestra orchestrations.  It's ready to receive visitors.

It sounds like a larger Mandolin PianOrchestra (of a least four ranks) or a Style 32 Concert PianOrchestra, except the range of expression is far greater and more dramatic.  Just give me a phone call or email telling me when you are going to be in the area.  The wait was worth it -- it's a hard act to follow.

This is the super orchestrion that Seeburg should have built, and, at the risk of sounding arrogant, Seeburg started it and I finished it.  Come judge for yourselves.
