Psycho Jazz: Dr. Ray’s Musical Talents

Although Dr. Ray talks a lot for a living, he still has enough of the old fire left to push out a few tunes on his Hammond organ. He learned to play the organ when he was young — his dad made him take lessons. Although he didn’t like to practice, it paid off. He entertained his way through eight years of university education by playing in dinner clubs.

Listen to a few of Dr. Ray’s favorite tunes below.
