Biggs is a serious, gigantic figure in the world of organ music. He has a strict playing style, a regime if you will. He seeks out the gourmet menu of the world's organs to render compositions perfectly. In little words, he is DA MAN. He is inside Bach's head 100% in a way that at time stuns me. His playing sends my mind to Musicville like no other organist. I have a fairly complete EPB discography on vinyl.
My exposure to Virgil Fox is a as sort-of pop stylist. Nothing against him, but there's nothing going on there. Maybe I'm just being a blockhead and saying "I like what I like" but, well...
