Musikmesse-Session mit Jon Hammond Band http://www.facebook.com/events/836105496404711/ Wie jedes Jahr gibt Jon Hammond und Band sich die Ehre anlässlich der Musik Messe in Frankfurt bei uns zu spielen! Donnerstag, 13. März - Jon Hammond Band CONFIRMED: Jon Hammond Band 18th Consecutive Year! Jon's musikmesse-Session Funky Jazz and Blues Schon traditionell findet bei uns zur Frankfurter Musikmesse ein Treffen hochkarätiger Musiker statt. Wie auch in den vergangenen Jahren ist der aus New York stammende Orgelspieler Jon Hammond, mit Joe Berger „Berger-meister“, Peter Klohmann und Giovanni Gulino, angesagt. Im Spiel geht Jon Hammond absolut in seiner Musik und seiner Leidenschaft für den guten alten Hammond-Sound auf. Mit 18 Jahren kaufte er sich seine erste Hammond B3 und tourte mit der Rockband Hades im Vorprogramm von Tower Of Power oder Michael Bloomfield. Ein regelrechter Genießer: Seinen Kopf wiegt er ständig von einer Seite zur anderen. Die linke Hand ersetzt größtenteils den Part eines Bassisten, zusätzlich zu den verschiedenen Klangfarben, die er manuell justiert. Der Gitarrist Joe Berger gleicht einem Saiten-Hasardeur. Er spielte bereits mit Who-Bassist John Entwistle und sorgte in dessen Band für den Studio-Mix. Peter Klohmann ist ein junger talentierter Tenorsaxophonist. Giovanni Totò Gulino ziseliert an den Becken, setzt genaue Akzente auf der Fußtrommel und spielt leichte, luftige Melodien auf der Snare.

Sincerely, Jon Hammond Hammond Organ USA Stand #5100 photos by Larry Gay of West Coast Live Radio Program - Scott May, Scott and Ellis Hall, Ellis and Steve Simmons, Jon Hammond at the new Hammond A-162 Console organ with powerful internal sound system, every living room and Church needs one! INTRODUCING THE A-162 | Hammond USA - http://hammondorganco.com/introducing-the-a-162/ ON THEIR 80th ANNIVERSARY, HAMMOND ORGAN RE-IMAGINES THE CLASSIC “A-100” Popular model retains the legendary sound at a budget price While the HAMMOND B-3 remains the world standard for Electronic Organs, its “little brother”, the model A-100, has its devotees as well. HAMMOND USA announces the release of the A-162, inspired by the original, which was released in 1960. The classic A-100 was a self-contained instrument needing no external speakers, providing the inimitable Hammond tone in a compact “footprint”, having all the features of the Hammond flagship, at a more modest price. The New Model A-162 continues that tradition. Using the same VASE III Tonal “Engine” as their top-of-the-line B-3mkII, the new A-162 gives all the power and sound expected from a Hammond, with the familiar reverse-key presets, Touch-Response Percussion, Chorus-Vibrato, and twin waterfall keyboards with 25-note pedalboard. The new A-162 features a powerful 150-watt onboard sound system with a compliment of five heavy duty speakers, one of which is a 15” woofer for rich pedal/bass tones. This system even surpasses the beloved antique A-100 with the inclusion of a state-of-the-art Digital Leslie™, a benefit not found on the original. The option remains, however, to attach a physical Leslie speaker to expand the tonal range, if necessary. The demand for the “vintage” Hammond Organ sound remains high, but the number of instruments from the 50’s and 60’s are rapidly diminishing, Hammond has mined its 80 year history to produce instruments that look, sound and perform like their beloved models, bypassing the complex mechanical apparatus of the past, executing their exact functions in the digital realm. This modern approach provides not only stability and confidence, but allows for precise control and extensive customization and adaptability. You can now “dial in” all the unique characteristics and intangibles that you desire in a Hammond Organ and Leslie. You can have the “A-100” you’ve always wanted. Its small “footprint” is perfect for smaller Churches, Chapels, Schools, Homes and Studios, and its affordable price is in everyone’s budget. The classic A-100 brought the Hammond magic to a wider audience, and the same spirit is alive in the technologically advanced A-162, providing all the stirring and traditional music Hammond is famous for. For 80 years, Hammond is the SOUND, the SOUL, the ONE!!

Jennifer and I wanted to get to the club early so that we could get a sound check and settle in. Faina picked us up and we stuffed my organ and all our equipment in her compact car and off we went to Le Club in the Taganka Theatre Building. When we arrived the big friendly doormen picked up my heavy cases like they were toothpicks and brought them up the stairs for me! Vladimir the sound engineer for the club was very smooth and professional, and a very nice guy. We got a good sound on the organ and then came Eduard Zizak the great drummer! I had already met Eduard in New York the week before when he was there performing with Igor's quartet at Birdland. Eduard is an incredible drummer and also a very nice guy. We made a little soundcheck and right away I could tell that he had listened to my music and we would lock up with some very tight grooves...no problem! But where was Igor? I was hoping for a little mini-rehearsel with Igor but when I saw the public coming in to have dinner I knew it was too late for that! Igor arrived with his entourage and it was great to see him...he told me not to worry and apologised for not coming earlier. Igor is in big demand with a very busy schedule, so I am very lucky and honored that he could take the time to perform with me together even as his new cd album "Prophecy" was just released on the Universal Label. We had time only for a 5 minute soundcheck and I showed Igor my book. This was going to be a very spontaneous performance, no doubt about it! We decided to record it, and Vladimir did a fantastic job on the recording on their new digital recording console that they had just brought back from New York. From the first notes I knew that this would be one of those magic nights I would never forget. The response from the audience was wonderful. I could only say in Russsian, "Ya LuBlu Vas"...which means, I love you all. And when I said the words to the people I got a great feeling back from them. First set was just fine and then on the break I was introduced to many press people and some fantastic local musicians. I was very honored that they all came to greet me. And then Igor proudly introduced me to 2 of the legendary jazz musicians of Moscow-accordionist Vladimir Danilin and guitarist Alexei Kuznezov. They said they had their instruments in the car and so yes we decided right away to make a live session together. It was incredible from the first song on the 2nd set, playing together with these fantastic Moscow musicians! It felt like we had been playing together for 20 years. These musicians are some of the greatest I have ever heard and played together with. The audience was loving every bit of it, just as much as I! I was so happy that Vladimir was getting it all on tape and Jennifer was also running the video machine and taking pictures also. By the end of the night I was very satisfied with how everything went. Igor personally drove Jennifer and I back to the hotel in his nice car with fantastic sound system. Great night!

John! - Jon Hammond Band http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Entwistle John Alec Entwistle (9 October 1944 – 27 June 2002) was a British musician, songwriter, singer, film and music producer, who was best known as the bass guitarist for British rock band The Who. He was the only member of the band to have formal musical training. His aggressive lead sound influenced many rock bass players.[1][2] He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Who in 1990. John Entwistle's instrumental approach used pentatonic lead lines, and a then-unusual trebly sound ("full treble, full volume") created by roundwound RotoSound steel bass strings. He was nicknamed "The Ox", as well as "Thunderfingers" – because his digits became a blur across the four-string fretboard.[3] In 2011, a Rolling Stone reader poll selected him as the greatest bassist of all time.[4] The Biography Channel has declared that John Entwistle is considered by many to be the best bass guitarist that ever lived, and that it is often said that he did for the bass what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar. irth name John Alec Entwistle Also known as The Ox, Thunderfingers, The Quiet One, Big Johnny Twinkle Born 9 October 1944 Chiswick, London, England Died 27 June 2002 (aged 57) Paradise, Nevada, United States Genres Rock, art rock, hard rock, power pop Occupations Musician, songwriter, record producer, musical arranger Instruments Bass guitar, vocals, French horn, keyboards, piano, trumpet, double bass, harmonica, jaw harp, bugle, percussion, eight-string bass guitar Years active 1961–2002 Labels Polydor, MCA, ATCO Records, Track Records, Griffin Music Associated acts The Who, The John Entwistle Band, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, Gov't Mule, Led Zeppelin, The Fabulous Poodles, Susanna Hoffs, Tipton, Entwistle & Powell, Téléphone Entwistle was born on 9 October 1944 in Chiswick, a suburb of London.[6] He was an only child. His father, Herbert, played trumpet[7] and his mother, Queenie Maud (29 November 1922 – 4 March 2011)[citation needed], played piano.[8] His parents' marriage failed soon after he was born, and he was mostly raised by his grandparents in South Acton.[9] Divorce was uncommon in the 1940s, and this contributed to Entwistle becoming reserved and socialising little.[8] His musical career began aged 7, when he started piano lessons. He did not enjoy the experience and after joining Acton County Grammar School aged 11, switched to the trumpet,[8] moving to french horn when he joined the Middlesex School's Symphony Orchestra.[9] He met Pete Townshend in the second year of school, and the two formed a trad jazz band, The Confederates. The group only played one gig together, before they decided that rock 'n' roll was a more attractive prospect.[7] Entwistle, in particular, was having difficulty hearing his trumpet with bands, and decided to switch to playing guitar. However, due to his large fingers, and also his fondness for the low guitar tones of Duane Eddy, he decided to take up the bass.[10] He made his own instrument at home, and soon attracted the attention of Roger Daltrey, who had been the year above Entwistle at Acton County, but had since left to work in sheet metal. Daltrey was aware of Entwistle's reputation and asked him to join as bassist for his band, The Detours.[11] Early career[edit] After joining the Detours, Entwistle played a major role in encouraging Pete Townshend's budding talent on the guitar, and insisting that Townshend be admitted into the band as well. Eventually, Roger Daltrey fired all the members of his band with the exception of Entwistle, Townshend and the drummer, Doug Sandom, although in Sandom's case it was only because he had not yet found a drummer with sufficient talent to replace him. Upon the entry of Keith Moon to the band, Roger Daltrey relinquished the role of guitarist to Pete Townshend, instead becoming frontman and lead singer.[citation needed] The band considered several changes of name, temporarily performing as the High Numbers, and finally settling on the name The Who while Entwistle was still working as a tax clerk.[12] When the band decided that the blond Roger Daltrey needed to stand out more from the others, Entwistle dyed his naturally golden hair black, and it remained so until the early 1980s.[citation needed] Around 1963, John Entwistle played in a London band called The Initials for a short while; the band split when a planned resident engagement in Spain fell through. In 1967, Entwistle married his childhood sweetheart Alison Wise and bought a large semi-detached home in Acton, filling it with all sorts of extraordinary artefacts, ranging from suits of armour to a tarantula spider. His eccentricity and taste for the bizarre was to remain with him throughout his life, and when he finally moved out of the city in 1978, to Stow-on-the-Wold in Gloucestershire, his 17-bedroom mansion, Quarwood, resembled a museum. It also housed one of the largest guitar collections belonging to any rock musician...cont. http://www.jonhammondband.com/news.html — with Bernard Purdie Jon's archive https://archive.org/details/HammondCast81 Danny Glover Actor Activist visiting with Jon Hammond on Jon's radio program, touching on a whole range of topics of global importance and locally in San Francisco where the broadcast happened on 1550 AM KYCY and KYOU - revisiting concerts attended at Bill Graham's Fillmore, talking about the music that inspired him while attending San Francisco State University, Chambers Brothers, Aretha Franklin, John Coltrane a shout out to saxophonist Ron Stallings (R.I.P.) and more, a truly incredible in-depth interview covering his work in movies, the ACT Theatre Group, United Nations and works of Richard Wright and his wife at Bomani Gallery.
