Seriously people, you must watch Jelani Eddington's incredible rendition of the Main Title from the Star Wars Symphonic Suite on a Sanfilippo Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. It starts slow but it gets pretty crazy after a while. And the end—holy crap that end. Is he playing in the Death Star or what?

The organ is not in a galaxy far away but in Barrington, Illinois. I didn't even know this kind of pipe organs existed, with all those instruments attached to it. Awesome instrument and even more awesome skills.

I grew up with a Wurlitzer Pipe Organ in my basement. My Father made a business of reconditioning, installing, tuning, and restoring these beauties. He even had organs in three Seattle/Tacoma area pizza places called Pizza and Pipes where they would show silent movies and cartoons while the organs played along. Good memories!
