While Variety also commemorated his life here

Anthony Craven wrote to Newsdesk to say

"Sad to hear of the death of Tommy Morgan..

We communicated by EMail in  July 24th 2007. I wrote to him because I had the John Barry CD  "The Beyondnessof Things".

He wrote -  " i generally play a Hohner Chromatic  #270 (3 octave model in the key of C.( I do play the chromatics (as well as the diatonics) in different keys. The diatonics are generally the ones played in keys. I will sometimes play a chromatic in a different key, but rarely. I play in all keys on a key of C Chromatic.

"The Beyondness of Things" is a wonderful album, and recording in London in 1997 was a wonderful experience. For the solo on Heartland, I used a a Hohner Tenor
Harmonica ( key of C ).  Hering manufactures some very good instruments, and I have a very good Bariton

Best Wishes

Tommy Morgan"

Tommy's long career started as a 17 year old playing for the Andrews sisters until he suffered a stroke in 2013. A sad loss and comiserations go to his wife Lois; sons Matthew and Daniel; and granddaughter Addie Rae and his many friends.
