Don Airey is a keyboardist he played with may famous artists: Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne (solo), Rainbow, Colosseum II and many others. From few years he is an organist in Deep Purple.
He recorded 2 solo albums:
 
"A Light in the sky" (2008)(http://www.amazon.com/Light-Sky-Don-Airey/dp/B0011458LK) - audio samples
 
"K2: Tales of Triumph & Tragedy"(19880(http://www.amazon.com/K2-Triumph-Tragedy-Don-Airey/dp/B00020H8ZI) - audio samples
 
His first album isn't that good. Mainly pop or hard rock songs full of digital synthesizers. However his secodn effort "A Light in the sky" is much better. Keyboards are fully analoh (Hammond, Moog, pianos etc.). This record is full of different styles: mainly jazz-rock, symphonci prog (a la ELP) and heavy prog in the vain of his new band Deep Purple.

listening to Airey with the great Colosseum II right now, what an amazing band

didn't find A Light in the Sky all that progressive, or maybe I just didn't like it, I know I didn't feel it merited his inclusion as a solo artist but I'm sure many will disagree..  good luck
