I own a double LP containing 24 songs played by Bobby Hackett, accompanied by Glen Osser on organ and piano. It is a re-issue by some French label and apart from the titles there are no further data. What I'd like to know is whether this organ is a so called electronic organ, as some of my friends say, or is it a pipe organ, like they had in movie theatres. If it's an electronic it's NOT a Hammond, more like a Lowrey. The sound is like the ones we had here in Holland, in movie theatres and radio studios. Come to think of it, 'Fats' Waller made also recordings on organ. Anybody?
