Who was/were the pianist/pianists in Frankie Trumbauer’s recording session of Oct 10, 1929? On that day Tram and a contingent of Whiteman musicians went to the OKeh studios in New York City and recorded three numbers.
This from Lord’s disco.

You will see that, according to Lord, Lennie Hayton and Hoagy Carmichael were the pianists and Hayton also played celeste But there is conflicting data in the literature. I present herewith data I gathered from discographies.
Delaunay – Hayton, p and cel
Rust – Carmichael p and cel, replaces Hayton (who was on p and cel in Tram’s sessions of May 21, May 22, Sep 18 and Oct 15, 1929.
Evans and Kiner – Hayton p and cel, Carmichael p "Carmichael on W-403051-C (Manhattan rag) only."
Mosaic set on Bix, Tram and Tea – Carmichael p cel voc effects in Turn on the H and Sunnyside Up; Carmichael p in Manhatttan Rag. “Trumbauer, Venuti and others provide some unruly counterpoint behind Smith Ballew in Turn on the Heat. Hoagy Carmicahel, newly arrived in New York, is in all probability one of the culprits. He’s at the piano for his own instrumental novelty Manahttan Rag clearly written with Bix in mind.”
Mitchell – In the listing of musicians Hayton or Carmichael p and cel[ next to the title of each of the three numbers: HC p.
The Old Masters set on Tram – Carmichael p cel
