Jon Hammond’s Road Baggage: The GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case for Sk1 Hammond and Briggs & Riley Travelware

Jon Hammond says, protect your investment in Sk1 Hammond with the custom molded Polyethylene “Polyethylene glycol (PEG)” Flight Case product from Gator Cases

Recommendation from Jon Hammond The GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case for Sk1 Ultra-Portable Organ

Jon Hammond — When you travel with your instruments as much as I do, you want to have a solid protective flight case for your instrument,

for the new Hammond Sk1 ultra-portable combo organ I highly recommend the GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case from a company called Gator Cases.

The fit is nearly perfect, it locks in to place when you close the case and for extra insurance you can put a small additional piece of foam in the small gap:

LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

History

An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

Run by Mike Mikell and Pat Mikell, from 1969 to 1991 it was a regular venue for New York’s top studio and session musicians who would turn up for jam sessions with major soul, funk and jazz artists visiting the city.[1]
Among the performers and bands associated with Mikell’s are Stuff, the alliance of studio musicians that played almost weekly at Mikell’s in the 1970s.
In early 1980, the club served for rehearsals for Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers Big Band, which included Wynton Marsalis, and which would result in the live album Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers Big Band – Live at Montreux and North Sea (1980).[2] Other artists appearing at the club in the 1980s included Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, Cedar Walton and Mickey Roker (June 1983[3]), Paquito D’Rivera (January 1984[4]).

At Whole Foods concerts, locals recall jazz roots
Whole Foods Market, located at 97th Street and Columbus Avenue, is partnering with the Jazz Foundation of America to bring weekly concerts to the store.
By Sonalee Rau
Published September 30, 2010
This fall, the best place to find free jazz will be your local Whole Foods.


Whole Foods Market, located at 97th Street and Columbus Avenue, is partnering with the Jazz Foundation of America to bring weekly concerts to the store, as part of the foundation’s Jazz Legend Fall Series. Every Friday through Oct. 29, from 5:00 to 7:00, organizers hope to transform the supermarket into a music hall.


This particular Whole Foods has roots in the blues—it stands around the same site that neighborhood mainstay Mikell’s Jazz Club did between 1969 and 1991.


“We really wanted to connect historically with the long-term residents in the community, as well as with the new residents who would be moving in,” said Whole Foods Marketing Team Leader Kimberly Robison, who is coordinating the Jazz Legend Series.


Many of the musicians featured in the 10-week series once played at Mikell’s Jazz Club. “Whitney Houston was discovered there, Wynton Marsalis. … Various great musicians performed at that location,” Robison said. “One of my friends, he had moved away to Chicago and when he came back, Mikell’s was closed—and he started crying because it meant that much to him in his personal life. It was a community place and such a historic club.”


Last Friday’s concert featured saxophonist Eric Wyatt as part of a quartet that included bass, drums, and piano. The musicians played in the store’s cafeteria, and the event had a strong neighborhood turnout.


“We’ve had a great turnout and a warm reception, and this has become a way in which to tell the story of the neighborhood,” she said.


The Jazz Foundation of America has played a major role in the sponsorship of the series and provides support to jazz musicians—particularly aging artists, according to Robison.


More than just an escape from the produce aisle, patrons said the concerts serve as something of an oasis in a neighborhood that has changed dramatically over the past few decades. Smaller family-owned establishments have made way for the large stores that occupy the Columbus Square area today.


Upper West Side resident Lynn Hilaire remembered Mikell’s fondly as a popular destination for jazz aficionados. “It was a great spot, they had great jazz, they really had great people there. And it’s sort of legendary in the neighborhood.”


Hilaire said that the development of this neighborhood has its positive and negative aspects. While she enjoys having easy access to shopping, it has come at a price. “I had a view of Central Park for 37 years. Now I have [a view of] the people who live in the building in front of my living room window,” she said.


Other Whole Foods customers agreed that the face of the neighborhood has undergone remarkable change over the years. “It was a tennis court over there! Back in the seventies,” said concert-goer Barbara Johnson, gesturing to a space across the street from the grocery store.


“Some days it looks like 34th Street,” added local resident Dolores Zecca.


Sabella Curry, a regular at the Friday evening events who said she’d been coming since last year, used to frequent Mikell’s while it was still open. She shared Hilaire’s sentiments about the development of Columbus Square, but said the Jazz Legend Series is “the greatest.”


“Everybody have something to do on Friday that’s free, meeting and talking with other people. It’s good for us senior citizens,” she said.

■ 11月1日(月) 晴れ
この日は何故なのかトリプルブッキング。プライベートで日本に立ち寄られたジョン・ハモンドさん、日本ツアーを終えて帰国前の敦賀明子さん。そして、これもまた関西からの帰路に立ち寄られた田中光栄さん。何の脈絡もなく集まった3人にアフターファイブコンサートをお願いしてしまったのはスズキ楽器貿易の北米担当者だった。



ジョン・ハモンドさんはショービジネスの表舞台に出てくることは少ないが、フランクフルトメッセでは25年、ナムショーでもレギュラーのように演奏されているエンドーサーである。今回も鈴木会長に唯会いたいという一念で来日された律儀なお人柄です。



派手さこそないがベーシックな彼のオルガンプレイは聴く人に安心感を与えてくれます。セラピストの術中に入っていくかのように、仕事を終えた従業員たちの心を癒してくれました。

LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

History

An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

    My first residence in Paris France – L’hotel
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Hotel
    L’Hôtel is a 4-star luxury hotel in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris.
    When previously known as the Hôtel d’Alsace, Oscar Wilde spent his last days there in room 16, famously remarking “I am dying beyond my means”. Other former residents include Marlon Brando, actress and singer Mistinguett, and writer Jorge Luis Borges, who said it seemed to have been “sculpted by a cabinet maker”.[1] The hosting of Borges in this hotel was not by chance: when he was nine, he translated Wilde’s “The Happy Prince” into Spanish and since then he had become a big fan of his work; Borges wanted to die where the writer of his childhood had also died.

          Folks, you gotta’ have heavy duty connections to park your Hammond B3 organ and five-piece band right in front of City Hall in San Francisco for a concert…and I got ’em! That’s James Preston from Sons of Champlin band on drums, I got the leader chair at my 1965 Hammond B3 organ. I have since sent that organ down to Australia to a good friend of mine

                    Merci Beaucoup George Whitman Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris December 12, 1913 – December 14, 2011 from Jon Hammond

                    12/15/2011 New York, NY — R.I.P. George Whitman founder of Shakespeare & Co. Book Shop in Paris, I shot this photo of George’s best friend Lawrence Ferlinghetti the Poet in front of George’s shop when I met him and Lawrence on my first journey to Paris 1981. The child is George’s daughter Sylvia, she is grown up now and runs the shop, she will carry on for George there in St. Michel Paris – Jon Hammond *note: thanks / merci beaucoup for all the great Sunday teas 4PM-6PM I attended at your apartment when I was living in Paris George! JH

                    Photo by Jon Hammond – Lawrence Ferlinghetti and young Sylvia Whitman in front of Shakespeare & Company book shop in St. Michel Paris with umbrella, photo by Jon Hammond circa 1981:

                    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Whitman

                    Whitman founded his bookstore in 1951 and named it Le Mistral, then later named it after Sylvia Beach’s earlier Paris bookstore “Shakespeare and Company”.[3] His shop, located at 37 rue de la Bûcherie in Paris, was opened in August 1951 (two years before a sister bookshop City Lights was opened in San Francisco by Lawrence Ferlinghetti) by George Whitman with an inheritance from his aunt. He called the shop “Le Mistral” after his first French girlfriend. From the very first night he allowed travellers, young writers, poets and artists to lodge in exchange for a hand in cleaning the shop, building shelves and selling books. Sylvia Beach, whose famous shop was on 12, rue de l’Odéon, was still in Paris and came to Le Mistral to see the writers of the new generation, whom Anaïs Nin called Xerox artists,[citation needed] read aloud their new work. Whitman modeled his shop after Sylvia Beach’s. As it was the only free English-language lending library in Paris, the Beats who arrived at the Beat Hotel on rue Git-le-Coeur quickly found their way to the small bookshop and made a place for themselves there. In 1962, Sylvia Beach died, willing to Whitman a good deal of her private books and the rights to the name Shakespeare and Company. In 1964, Le Mistral was renamed Shakespeare and Company. Whitman named his daughter, born in 1981, after his bibliophilic predecessor; Sylvia Whitman took over the running of the shop in 2003 at age 22.[4]
                    Whitman allowed young travellers to stay in the residential quarters of his rue de la Bûcherie premises (specifically published writers); and one was also encouraged to read a book a day during your stay and were asked for two hours work as contribution to the running of the shop. All Whitman asked of his guests is to provide a short “biography” and photograph and work a short period in the shop. On Sunday mornings he traditionally cooked his guests a pancake breakfast, brewing up a thin ersatz “syrup” out of some burnt sugar and water.
                    Whitman began to receive international notice when a documentary titled Portrait of a Bookstore as an Old Man, by Gonzague Pichelin and Benjamin Sutherland, ran on The Sundance Channel in fall 2005. At the end of the film, Whitman trimmed his hair using the flame of a candle, set his hair on fire, and then doused it.
                    On Wednesday, September 26, 2007, journalist Gerry Hadden’s story on George Whitman, his daughter Sylvia, and Shakespeare & Company aired on NPR’s The World (a co-production of the BBC, Public Radio International (PRI), and the Boston radio station WGBH).[5][6]
                    [edit]Death

                    Whitman died on December 14, 2011, at age 98, at home in the apartment above his bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, in Paris. He will be buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in the east of Paris.

                    *Note, regrettfully, sadly and tragically Oliver Johnson was murdered in Paris 2004 by a homeless man who is now in prison: *From Jazzhouse.org : Oliver Johnson was a noted participant in the free jazz movement of the 1960s, but was a versatile and adaptable performer in many settings. He settled in Paris in the late-60s. He worked with a number of major figures from the free and experimental scene, including Anthony Braxton, Dewey Redman, Sam Rivers, Archie Shepp, the Art Ensemble of Chicago and David Murray, as well as more mainstream players, including Hampton Hawes, Bobby Hutcherson, Maynard Ferguson, Yusef Lateef, Atilla Zoller and Johnny Griffin. He worked regularly with saxophonist Steve Lacy between 1978-89. He co-led the trio TOK with Takashi Kako and Kent Carter. His body was discovered on a bench near Les Halles.

In the case of LATE RENT it is partially true, but now in 2005 I have taken the opportunity to take control of my music and visuals bringing them to you in the absolute highest quality thanks to my outstanding team of specialists. It has been a long road with many detours along the way but thankfully all the master recordings are intact and I was able to locate the photos which artist Michael August has shaped in to a creation that conveys the look of my tv show and tells you many things about this music before you even open the box. Hammond B3 freaks will not be disappointed. Joe Berger preserved the master recordings well. 25 years have passed from the start of this project with the first recordings. I am happy to say that now today my Rent is NOT Late! And the music of LATE RENT is available for the Ring Tones on your Phones. We appreciate your feedback by phone, email or good old fashioned snail-mail. Jon & Late Rent Team

                    About JON HAMMOND:

                    In 1983 Jon formed Backbeat Productions. Assisted by Lori
                    Friedman. With completely format original music and visuals – in a
                    radio adapted to television, Hammond´s innovative show quickly
                    became a Manhattan cable TV favorite. The show has been a
                    vehicle for new music and art for over 20 years. Many of today´s
                    new shows have been directly influenced by the Jon Hammond
                    Show – but the J.H. Show is known as the original show of it´s
                    type, and stands as the “Flagship” of public television.

                    About LORI

                    Known as New York´s #1 Editor and Video artist.
                    Her work has evolved from the top advertising agencies, to form a
                    collaboration known as: Backbeat Productions. Under the direction
                    of Jon Hammond, her work has been seen by millions of people
                    every week on The Jon Hammond Show. Called by Billboard
                    Magazine: The alternative to MTV. Lori´s visuals are inspired in the
                    studio – by the music. Hundrets of hours were spent synchronizing
                    the music and the visuals, to create a hybrid. A synergy of visual
                    and musical improvisation. A modern “Fantasia”…the television of the future… with overtones of the vintage 60´s – 70´s psychedelic movement.

                    LATE RENT Music of The Jon Hammond Show MCTV
                    *Audiophile Quality Remasterings of Jon Hammond’s Greatest Hits
                    Letter To The Listener From JON HAMMOND
                    Dear Listener: In my life I have been extremely fortunate to have been able to pursue my dream of being a musician, composer, broadcaster/journalist and impressario around the world. The music you will hear on this disc is exactly as I assembled the pieces carefully from over a 14 year period of my best recordings up to the year of 1995. In one late-night/early-morning session with my co-producer/engineer Joe Berger, we put together all the tracks which became my first official release titled Late Rent, the theme song of my tv show The Jon Hammond Show. Since the completion of that project many things have happened or as we say, water under the bridge. Now I am happy to be able to bring forth the record 10 years later in the best quality audio with complete quality control so that for the first time I can present some of my most faithful
                    compositions to my listeners as I always wanted to. The music is timeless and as Ray Charles once said, “When you’re dead you’re done”, but Jon Hammond says, “The music lives on and it will keep traveling long after I’m gone.” A message sent to all with no guarantee it has been received. I am the eternal optimist, having literally gone to live in other countries with nothing but my music and my instrument. Often I have played with musicians who can not speak English, but the language of music is international & universal. The rhythm of life exists on these tracks and like a musical photograph it has captured the spirit of my travels and life experiences. Late Rent is not just a title, it is a true story of my life struggles to get the rent paid and by many miracles I managed to get it paid every time, often down to a few moments of impending doom (better late than never!)…the music always came first for me and I am proud to present it to you now again better than ever. May this be the soundtrack to your life & travels and help groove you safely to your destinations sure as the sun rises in the morning.
                    Melody is King, and ™ The FINGERS…are the SINGERS!”
                    Crank it up kick back and enjoy, this is the music that has taken me around the world.
                    Sincerely,
                    Jon Hammond

                    They say history repeats itself. In the case of LATE RENT it is partially true, but now in 2005 I have taken the opportunity to take control of my music and visuals bringing them to you in the absolute highest quality thanks to my outstanding team of specialists. It has been a long road with many detours along the way but thankfully all the master recordings are intact and I was able to locate the photos which artist Michael August has shaped in to a creation that conveys the look of my tv show and tells you many things about this music before you even open the box. Hammond B3 freaks will not be disappointed. Joe Berger preserved the master recordings well. 25 years have passed from the start of this project with the first recordings. I am happy to say that now today my Rent is NOT Late!
                    And the music of LATE RENT is available for the Ring Tones on your Phones.
                    We appreciate your feedback by phone, email or good old fashioned snail-mail.

                    The Day I Met Steve Jobs Personally In San Francisco by Jon Hammond

                    Jon Hammond San Francisco CA — Let me preface this post by saying I am deeply saddened by the too-young death of Steve Jobs, but I am

                    very thankful to have met him personally and I am one of the beneficiaries of his incredible body of work. Thanks Steve!

                    As follows: On January 11th 2005 I attended The MacWorld Expo Keynote given by Steve Jobs at Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. Just prior to MacWorld my

                    first album re-release digitally remastered “Late Rent” went on to the iTunes Store so I was very excited about the whole concept of being able to offer my music through

                    the iTunes platform and I brought along one of the CD’s in my pocket.

                    The Keynote was really great, although I wasn’t really sure that Steve was there live because he was projected up on to the big screen throughout the presentation.

                    I thought it might be possible that it was a prepared film, but he occasionally made references to the day’s weather (rain predicted) and some other things that made it

                    current. Near the end of the presentation he brought out a surprise guest, President of Sony Kunitake Ando and they pledged a commitment to work together

                    on HD video. John Mayer came out and played at the end, the presentation was over and so I went in to the exhibits directly afterwards.

                    I was speaking with one of the Apple black shirt guys when all of a sudden I saw Steve. He saw me and I know he doesn’t like to be approached but he must have thought

                    he either knew me or recognized me and he came right over to meet me. I saw him coming so I reached in my pocket and pulled out my CD Late Rent fresh copy still in

                    the shrink wrap. I introduced myself and thanked Steve for the wonderful opportunity for all the composers and musicians to get our music out through iTunes (I am a member

                    of ASCAP) and I told him I would like to give him my Late Rent album if he would take it. He said “Sure!”

                    He then (this showed me how intense he is, I will never forget) I handed it to him and right away he looked at the cover art work and then looked straight at me to verify it

                    was indeed me on the cover. He then said “Thanks!” and I told him it was great to meet him…Steve walked away holding the CD in both hands still studying the artwork

                    intensely as approx. 50 people were following him like the Pied Piper, shouting out Steve Steve…over here!. Steve was absorbed in the art work, and there is plenty to look

                    at and copy to read, Michael August aka ILLUSTRATORP who designs my album covers so fantastically made sure of that!

                    After I met Steve Jobs it seemed that everything I did with Apple had been blessed by him, and maybe it has / had been!

                    Thanks for everything Steve Jobs,

                    sincerely,

                    LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

                    The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

                    History

                    An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
                    During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
                    In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
                    In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
                    The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

                    Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

                    NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
                    “It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
                    Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
                    His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

                    ■ 11月1日(月) 晴れ
                    この日は何故なのかトリプルブッキング。プライベートで日本に立ち寄られたジョン・ハモンドさん、日本ツアーを終えて帰国前の敦賀明子さん。そして、これもまた関西からの帰路に立ち寄られた田中光栄さん。何の脈絡もなく集まった3人にアフターファイブコンサートをお願いしてしまったのはスズキ楽器貿易の北米担当者だった。



                    ジョン・ハモンドさんはショービジネスの表舞台に出てくることは少ないが、フランクフルトメッセでは25年、ナムショーでもレギュラーのように演奏されているエンドーサーである。今回も鈴木会長に唯会いたいという一念で来日された律儀なお人柄です。



                    派手さこそないがベーシックな彼のオルガンプレイは聴く人に安心感を与えてくれます。セラピストの術中に入っていくかのように、仕事を終えた従業員たちの心を癒してくれました。

                    LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

                    The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

                    History

                    An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
                    During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
                    In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
                    In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
                    The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

                    This is a re-issue of Jon’s 1995 European release “Late Rent.” Never before available in the U.S., it contains a collection of recordings featuring Bernard Purdie and Steve Ferrone on drums, as well as Todd Anderson and Alex Foster on sax, Barry Finnerty and Graham Hawthorne, Ray Grappone, Jim Preston and Chuggy Carter. The record is a swinging and funky compilation of original tracks written by Jon Hammond, as well as some anecdotal asides and a guest appearance by Jazzbeaux Collins. Lots of great solos and organ sounds as well as melodies and groove.
