The Rhodes has long been a serious topic of discussion in jazz music, given its historical role in the electric music of Miles Davis and others. Other than the grand piano, no other keyboard instrument has a more distinguished and cherished sound than the Rhodes keyboard. I’m sure that, when Harold Rhodes started designing pianos for injured war veterans during World War II, he had no idea what kind of musical revolution his invention would start some twenty years later. The place of electric instruments in jazz music is always going to be debated by some, but to me, the Fender Rhodes is the most pure, powerful instrument ever created.
