The 1960s was the beginning of the Golden Age of film and TV themes and producers were looking for harmonica players. Tommy Morgan had the skills and would tackle anything. He became the “go-to” man for recording sessions, something he did for decades. Tommy said he had done over 900 film scores and 7000 recording sessions.
Phil Hopkins interviewed Tommy Morgan in 2010 about his long career as a mainly chromatic harmonica player who played on hundreds of film scores and thousands of recording dates.
when I saw the new box full of second hand records, I resisted buying over 20 recordings including 78rpm discs by Bessie Smith and Mead Lux Lewis but could not resist 4 10″ LPs by King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Josh White and Chris Barber, which were a part of my music education in the mid 1950s.
