    Recordings by Kenneth Goodman??

    Does anyone have any recordings of American concert and church organist Kenneth Goodman? He died in Chicago several years ago - was mainly active during the 1950's - 1970's.

    Hi Barry,

    Had not heard of this performer before.

    Did find his Obituary from 1999.

    There are other searches for him also with a great deal more info. I was not aware of him either. Strange I never heard of him in my college days or forgot maybe.

    Barry, I traveled 3 tours with him in the 60s and remember him saying that he did a "Return to Wannnamaker" concert but I don't have the tape. Gerry Shramek shramek@cvinternet.net

    I no long have it -- it was donated to the Stanford Archive of Recorded Sound with the rest of my organ records -- but there does exist an LP: WFB Productions 1206, called "Goodwill Abroad: Music of Aframerica" on which Kenneth Goodman plays three of his own compositions or improvisations as well as works by Bach, Corelli, Dupré, and Marcello on organs in Köln, Utrecht, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Gloucester. Not sure if Stanford has properly accessioned the records yet, but they should be able to make a copy once they have done so.
