 ProgressoR - Detailed Reviews - Colosseum - 1978 - "Wardance"
Well, the leader of the band Hiseman from then on has played just a second part in the composition of the pieces, but a study of the original style was fully unharmed and even improved.
But I'm not sure that the technical level and originality of Don Airey can be compared to those of the well-known virtuoso Rick Wakeman.
The relentless beautiful interplays between Moore and Airey as well as all the arrangements and improvisations, including jazz, are composed, in contradiction to pure jazz, where improvisation is just a state of mind.

 Ozzy Osbourne
By his own account, Ozzy's saving graces were the woman who would become his wife and manager, Sharon Arden (daughter of his first manager, Don Arden), and a young guitarist named Randy Rhoads from the band Quiet Riot.
Like Edward Van Halen, Rhoads was one of the most influential rock guitarists of his generation, and for similar reasons: both players combined a high degree of technical proficiency on the instrument, a fusion of classically-inspired and blues-oriented melodic ideas in improvisation, and a sense of showmanship that kept audiences engaged during performances.
Jake E. Lee, formerly of Ratt and Rough Cutt, was a more successful recruit than Torme, recording 1983's Bark at the Moon (with Daisley, Aldridge, and keyboard player Don Airey) and 1986's The Ultimate Sin (with bassist Phil Soussan and drummer Randy Castillo) and touring behind both albums.

 LET IT ROCK - DME Music Site
Don Airey is more than adequate in the organ department, yet the sound somehow mutated from the familiar, and typical PURPLE programme "Bananas" isn't.
Save for posh romanticism of "Haunted", a ballad seemingly ready-made for the MTV rotation, and the sad "Contact Lost", a heartfelt instrumental dedicated to the "Columbia" crew, all of this could be a bit more humorous though.
Don Airey simply shines on the Hammond and does "'70s Lord" better than the '90s Lord did.

Keyboard wizard Don Airey has been added to the album's line up and I must say his contribution is marvelous.
This is where Don Airey really gets to play a major role in a song's texture.

On keyboards was Don Airey, who has played with Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne, replacing the talented original Purple keyboardist Jon Lord, who recently departed the band after so many years of unmeasurable contribution to the Deep Purple sound.
However, Don Airey was very much the ideal replacement keyboardist for Jon Lord and was superb in his own fashion, impressing every Deep Purple fan present at the Singapore concert.
Halfway through Don Airey's keyboard solo, “Lazy,” Gillan turned to one member of the audience and gestured at his own pot-belly.
