i will say, crazy as it is whenever volta shows up on shuffle on the iphone at work and it's one of the organ heavy songs (meccamputechture, basically all of scabdates, etc.) i've found myself getting a big grin on my face because while it's sad he's gone, the great thing about musicians is you still have the tunes and with ikey you can still feel it in every recording how much of his soul he was putting into it.
He's one of those guys that even if you're talking to someone who doesn't play keys, you should show them his stuff to get people to understand what it is to play with real SOUL, to really throw yourself into it. You can hear it in people like ikey, that passion that doesn't always come through with people who are so obsessed with technicalities or perfection. Sad though still to lose one of the few great organ players on the planet, i'll give the man this: he had a tone that anyone who's heard him before could easily pick out of a crowd.
