Larry Dunn of Earth Wind and Fire recording a solo for Foley's debut album Motown. The video quality is pretty bad, so I can't quite make out what keyboard he is playing! It is from '92

Hello,

Its a Minimoog D. Larry Dunn is one of not many of the old-school 70s players who continued playing and recording with the Minimoog through the nineties and into the current era. He seems to mostly use the Voyager for gigging these
days.

Regards,

Thanks LWG! I thought it was a Minimoog from the sound, but I couldn't really see it.

I have been listening to EWF since I was really little so Larry Dunn has always been one of my favourites

Hello,

+1. His bass work on the D is just as badass (1st track):
