Dave "Baby" Cortez

Here we go again. A 1959 instrumental #1 hit. This time we find an organ in the lead. A first for that instrument. This was also the first time a black musician had scored a top hit as an instrumentalist.

The "Happy Organ" was indeed happy. As was his hit "Rinky Dink". I thoroughly enjoyed his music and to the best of my memory he may have been my first introductions to a rock and roll organ.

Enjoy the music !
