Relax With Larry Ferrari


Hands Across The Table

Relax With Larry Ferrari
Larry Ferrari, Hammond Organ
RCA Victor LPM-1496

From the back cover: Larry Ferrari's use of the Schulmerich "Harp-Celesta" with the Hammond organ demonstrates the broad field of originality the musician may explore in this unique new percussion instrument while making use of all the color, magnificence and versatility of the organ. Still a very young man, Larry Ferrari has been a master of the organ since he was nine years old, when he began playing in public. In addition to concert dates he appears regularly on Philadelphia's WFIL-TV and in such special events as the Music Festival sponsored by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

From Billboard - August 5, 1957: Popular Philadelphia organist bailiwick, of course. Actually, set is rather routine mood organ fare, cleanly, but not spectacularly recorded, and spotting a fairly intriguing cover for the mood trade. Standard tunes include "Hands Across The Table," "Stella By Starlight" and similar romantic fare. The organ is a Hammond. Can be sold if dealer doesn't already have more of this than he can handle.
