Bobby Forrester
Bobby (* 1947) was one of the greats of the Hammond Organ in Jazz and Rhythm & Blues. He worked for years with countless legends of Black music, from Lena Horne to Ruth Brown and everyone in between. However his life was tragically cut short at the age of 54, while he was still an extremely active sideman in the New York City Jazz scene. In 1993 Bobby took his working group into the studio in hopes that a label would pick it up, but to date it had never been released. He died in 2002.
