.
(Classic Rock) Jon Lord's final studio work, a new version of his Concerto For Group and Orchestra, will be released on September 25.

It was recorded in Abbey Road Studios and features the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra plus Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa and Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse.

Lord, who died last month at 71, said of the album: "Over the years since leaving Deep Purple I've played it over 30 times, and in 2000 I did it well over 30 times with Purple on tour. I've been honing the piece. It's a marvelous and exciting prospect to have the definitive recording of the definitive score."
