Curt Prina 1928-2018

Just days after the untimely loss of Mark Whale, news is filtering of the death of the legendary Swiss born German organ star Curt Prina.  Originally a vibraphone exponent, Curt’s talents on piano and latterly organ made him practically a household name in Germany as well as being in frequent demand across the pond in the USA.  He was one of the most friendly characters around with a huge personality, kind heart and great sense of humour.  Also equally talented on trumpet, his organ skills saw him recreate classical, pop, big band, jazz and pop styles with the greatest of ease.  His close connection to Wersi is noteworthy as was his vast recordings catalogue.  Again, a void that will never be filled...  RIP Curt.  Pictured with Chris Powell in Zurich 1993
