Dream Awhile - Bobby Hackett

Stardust
Dream Awhile
Bobby Hackett
With Johnny Seng on the Wurlitzer Pipe Organ
Arrangements by Glenn Osser
Columbia CL 1602
1961

From the back cover: The organ played by Gleen Osser and Johnny Seng is the four-manual Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, formerly the famous Paramount Theatre Studio organ. It is presently installed in the studio of Richard Loderhose. Mr. Seng, a demonstrator for the Wurlitzer company, provides a rich backdrop for the persuasive Hackett sound.

From March 6, 1961 Billboard: Bobby Hackett moved out of the jazz scene several years back to join the Jackie Gleason crew in some successful mood albums, and this new one featuring the fine, clean - Hackett trumpet tones against a mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ… The organ essays, the sound of an ork or band – it's that big, and Hackett moves in to take his pleasant solos.
