the synth band Art of Moog, produces albums for other artists, and writes for Sound on Sound magazine.
This quote from his review says it all:
"Orange Tree Sample's Famous E may be the best virtual Rhodes you can buy."
Orange Tree Samples is the company, which
is selling our product, so please tell anyone you think would be interested!

The New Year 2020 Special Interview at Inside MusiCast!
"While the rest of Los Angeles is sleeping, Jay Graydon is hard at work. His nocturnal schedule started when he was
in high school and has persisted throughout his career, but this magical time of the day has afforded Jay with the
creative timetable to write and produce countless gold, platinum and Grammy winning albums and songs. We last had
Jay on the show ten years ago when we discussed various highlights of his career, so we're pleased to have him back
to update us on several recent topics, including the new JaR album, his 'E' Model Rhodes project, some guitars from
his collection that he's parting ways with, and so much more.
I have remastered Past to Present - the 70s and
as usual, the incredible Fab Filter plugins and some others as well allow so much
flexibility! This album is interesting as it is an adventure through my history leading up to the point of before
becoming a 1st call studio guitarist up to the point when I made the move to producing and writing. - Jay
