Best Organ Music

There have been a lot of great organists who play different genres of organ music. One of the best rock and roll organists were Booker T & the MG’s. They are shown playing their classic Green Onions.


I bought the LP of The Cat recorded by Jimmy Smith playing his Hammond B3 organ. The title song The Cat is a song I have never got tired of, after listening to it for 48 years.


Denny McLain is known for being the last major league pitcher, to win 30 games when he won 31 in 1968. He also was a proficient organist, that plays two classics, More and Laura in this audio recording:

The late Leonard George DeStoppelaire, better known as Lenny Dee plays the classic It Had To Be You.


The late Ken Griffin who died in 1956 plays Now Is The Hour a classic Hawaiian song.


An unidentified organist playing a southern gospel classic Bye and Bye When the Morning Comes.


Nancy Bea Hefley playing the organ at a Los Angeles Dodgers game.


Hope these videos bring some memories of  present and  past organists, who have left an indelible impression on our lives with their music.
