The Summer of Love is a celebration of the original “Human Be-In” held in San Francisco in 1967 promoting the principles of Peace, Love and Compassion. This event is considered by many to be the birth of the counter- culture and the spark that ignited the 60’s Hip movement; which took the world by storm. Presidents were impeached and wars were stopped, a sea of humanity stood up and said “Hell No”. This pivotal moment was the start of many earth-shattering events and a mass spiritual awaking that inspired the Peace Movement, Anti-War Movement, The Environmental Movements, Gay Rights Movement, Women’s Movement etc all having their start and taking hold during this period.
On June 4th, in San Francisco’s Polo Fields, there will be 21 bands, 32 speakers, Native American Indians, Tibetan Monks, all performing for FREE celebrating this spiritual awakening that shattered perceptions and made the world take notice. All are welcome – Admission FREE.
SUMMER OF LOVE PROCLAMATION
There are moments in time when a word or thought has such power it changes history; a generation so involved in the moment it becomes unstoppable; a spiritual awakening so profound that its very conception shatters perceptions, halts the world and makes people from all nations take notice.
It began with a simple four-letter word – LOVE! In the 1960s this word became synonymous with a generation and city called San Francisco. It was a concept, a belief deep in the hearts of all who were there (and those who wished they were). It began with Ken Kesey, the Merry Pranksters and their bus “Furthur”, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Beat Generation. They gathered in places like North Beach, Haight Ashbury, and in cities like Palo Alto, Berkeley, Seattle, Portland, New York and L.A. These pockets of counter- cultural, anti-establishment individuals questioned authority and their surroundings while searching for the real meaning of life and deeper truths. These small communities of like- minded individuals and their “families” of communal creativity focused on poetry, art, folk music, jazz, and rock ’n roll, demanding to be free of societal restrictions, restraints and hang- ups.
Then one summer it happened! “We Were Everywhere!” The pureness of thought exploded exponentially and there were now millions of us. This event, this historical moment, which included most of 1967, became known as the “SUMMER OF LOVE.”
During this period the Peace Movement was born, with the “Human Be-In” in San Francisco and then the “Love-Ins” in New York. Anti-war demonstrations occurred everywhere and college campuses erupted with thousands of people protesting the draft. The American Indians took Alcatraz, the Black Panthers took Sacramento and the Brown movement demanded social change. Even the Olympic athletes stood up with fist raised to show solidarity with the winds of change. This startled our government, a president was impeached and a war was stopped. An entire generation stood up and shouted “Hell no, we won’t go!”
During this period change was occurring on multiple levels, giving birth to a variety of social movements: the Free Speech Movement, the Free Love Movement, the Women’s Movement, the Gay Rights Movement, the Sexual Revolution, the Spiritual Movement, the Farm Workers Movement, the Environmental Movement, the Ecology Movement, the Animal Rights Movement, the Student Movements, the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-War Movement.
The message was clear – the world was uniting behind one principle and one thought – LOVE! – and its affirmation of PEACE, COMPASSION and UNDERSTANDING. The word was brought forth by musicians such as Peter Paul & Mary, Donovan, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, the
Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane and then carried on by many English musicians like Eric Clapton, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
In the midst of this freethinking environment a renaissance of gifted geniuses emerged with the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison. New concepts and inventions touched every segment of society: the transistor silicon wafer, the calculator, the personal computer and the internet. The international community was in awe of this explosion of creativity. All this started with a simple word, a simple thought – LOVE! And a generation of freethinking people who were willing to stand up and be counted while proudly proclaiming their willingness to be different.
This period of change is commemorated by celebrating the
“SUMMER OF LOVE”
It stands for:
Truth and individual freedom. Freedom of expression.
Freedom to make a choice – sexually, spiritually and socially.
Our right to be different. Our right to refuse to fight without judging those who did. Creativity, love and respect for all things. Our right to make a difference.
Our right to think independently. Our willingness to share with others.”

Anaheim, California — Jon Hammond receiving the news over his famous BlackBerry phone that his band’s scheduled concert on CenterStage NAMM Show has really been canceled – rarely do you see Hammond pressing the phone up to his ear because of microwaves emitting – but as NAMM Production Manager Greg Herreman’s voice came crackling over the phone with the decisive word “Canceled” it was clear the 6 piece band would not be playing this show until Winter NAMM 2018

Rare Footage from inside Jazz Kneipe Frankfurt!

I played 207 gigs in the famous JAZZ KNEIPE Frankfurt at Berlinerstr. 70 until Regina the boss finally closed the doors and moved to Spain a few years ago, usually in Duo, sometimes as Trio but more often than not as Solo. This was a special occasion because my bandmates from California came over so I had them on the gig with addition of Sgt. Al Wittig of U.S. Air Force on tenor, James Preston of Sons of Champlin band drums, Barry Finnerty gtr., myself Jon Hammond at XB-2 Hammond organ. This was a very special place frequented by all the musicians after there gigs. A 5 hour gig until wee hours of the morning, Live Music 7 days a week in rotation with musicians like Piano George, Izio Gross, Wilson de Oliveira and members of HR Bigband. Regina introduced me to Tony Lakatos the Hungarian tenor saxophonist who I play with still today. The club was not large but it had a great atmosphere and was always a safe place to hang out until as late as 5AM. Sadly the Jazz Kneipe is still shuttered there on Berlinerstr. directly behind the Frankfurter Hof Hotel. All musicians tip their hat when they pass by. There’s a lot of music in those walls!

Sennheiser to open Soundscape Showroom in the Westfield World Trade Center

“Daniel and Andreas Sennheiser who run the blossoming Sennheiser company, an audio business based in Germany. (CHRISTIAN BURKERT)”
BY
EBENEZER SAMUEL
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Monday, October 3, 2016, 2:47 PM
“Daniel Sennheiser knows exactly what he’s up against.

Along with his brother Andreas, Daniel Sennheiser runs the blossoming Sennheiser company, a blossoming audio business based in Germany. But he’s watched and admired New York City for a long time, come to appreciate the business challenges of the Big Apple.

And along the way, Sennheiser says, he’s come to view New York City as a pivotal battleground for any business ready to go global.

“New York has been the beginning of a lot of things,” Sennheiser says. “This is a melting pot, that has brought up so many things, brought up Broadway. New York is very fast-living. And that’s positive in a sense that they’re quick to pick up new trends and things.
“But that also means you need to make a certain amount of noise.”

And now, it’s time for Sennheiser to make some noise. In late October, the company will take up residence in the Big Apple, opening the Sennheiser Soundscape Showroom in the Westfield World Trade Center.

It’s a venue that will be filled with Sennheiser’s unique products, but the focus isn’t on selling. Instead, Sennheiser is focused on introducing New Yorkers to its distinctive audio, part of a first step in establishing the company as a sound powerhouse in a nation that’s spent the last few years in the midst of a great headphone awakening.

“We believe it’s the right time for us to make a big splash to share our version of the future of audio with New York,” says Andreas.

It’s an intriguing vision from a company that’s long delivered high-quality sound but has consistently lacked the profile of the bigger names in the industry. Beats by Dre and Bose own the majority of U.S. mindshare, and both companies are highly visible, utilized by both celebrities and major sports franchises.
Sennheiser has never had such presence, and that’s mostly by choice. Look closely during your next NBA on TNT broadcast, and you may notice Sennheiser headsets on the play-by-play guys. But the company has historically done little marketing, preferring to let its devices shine on their own merits.

The Soundscape Showroom isn’t the start of some massive ad campaign, either. But it is part of a company-wide initiative to be more visible in the United States, to draw more notice to an underrated line of products. Just a few years ago, the company set up a small pop-up store on the East Side. With the Soundscape Showroom, it’s going bigger, aiming to be a national presence.

“It’s to raise a little awareness. We’re just not present enough,” Daniel says, before talking proudly of Sennheiser’s lore. “Sennheiser is the inventor of the hi-fi headphone. Not a lot of people know that.”

Indeed, few realize just how potent Sennheiser products truly are. It was Sennheiser that released the first pair of open headphones way back in 1968, and it’s Sennheiser that’s continued to chase perfect, pure sound throughout the last few decades.

And it’s Sennheiser that last year debuted the HE1 Orpheus, a handcrafted set of headphones powered by a massive amplifier built from marble and driven by gold-vaporized electrodes and platinum vaporized-diaphragms. It’s a device that costs tens of thousands of dollars and is hardly for use with your iPad on the train – but it’s a device that showcases Sennheiser’s pursuit of high-level sound.

“Sennheiser has been on the forefront of audio strategy for years,” says Daniel. “We just added the sexy aesthetics after we did the sound.”

Sound remains the company’s top priority, but in recent years, it’s been pushing to match the more attractive headphones delivered by the likes of Beats and Bose. There’s the Momentum line of headphones, a sharp-looking line of headphones with rugged leather bands that seem tailor made for the stylish Manhattanite.

And just this summer, Sennheiser released the PXC 550, a noise-canceling Bluetooth pair of cans designed to go head-to-head with Bose’s QuietComfort line, but with touch controls built onto the earcups.
These products, says Daniel Sennheiser, are examples of Sennheiser’s ability to adapt to culture, proof that the company’s products truly can fit the New Yorker. The Sennheiser aesthetic is unique, and the Momentums are especially eye-catching units, as fashion-conscious as they come.

The hope is that consumers enter the Soundscape Showroom and see these products, falling in love with a new brand of headphone.

“The qualities (of Sennheiser headphones) are great — the material, the leather, the steal,” Daniel says. “But you also have to have the opportunity to touch it. In our experience, audio is something you can’t describe. You have to put it on your head.

“Sennheiser is not a brand for everyone. I think we’re a brand for people who are in the know, who are creative, who really look for special things. That’s why I think a place like New York is the place to be.”

And that’s precisely why Sennheiser is finally here, with the Soundscape Showroom as its first truly potent portal in the United States. The goal is to build from here, Andreas says, to finally aggressively cultivate the Sennheiser brand in the U.S.

It won’t be easy, not with Beats and Bose dominant. But Sennheiser arrives prepared.

“We have a serious plan, but we’re also nimble enough to adjust,” says Daniel. “As Frank Sinatra said, ‘If you can make it here, you can make it everywhere.'”

“Interview: Co-CEO Dr Andreas Sennheiser” credit: PSN Europe http://www.psneurope.com/interview-co-ceo-dr-andreas-sennheiser/

“Dr Andreas Sennheiser took over the running of his family business with his brother Daniel in May of 2013. In the three years since, the company has released some notable technology – but there have been some serious changes at the company along the way. In an wide-ranging and candid interview, Dave Robinson discovers what the young co-CEO thinks about the $50k Orpheus headphones, the restructuring of the company, the fiercely competitive marketplace and what gets him out of bed in a morning…

Let’s begin with AMBEO, your 3D, immersive audio concept.

Dr Andreas Sennheiser: At CES, we launched something we’ve been working on for the last 5-7 years: algorithms for ‘immersive audio’. When we started research, we thought it was going to be relevant: it was a gut feeling that what exists wasn’t good enough. While we did research on these algorithms, we didn’t know where it was going to go, but with big content providers such as Universal and Red Bull Media embarking in 360-degree video and immersive audio recordings in the last 12-18 months, suddenly a huge new world has opened up for us. So, we’ve started to compile all the technology into distinct solutions for recording, mixing, processing, playing back. And that’s what we showed with the AMBEO brand at CES [and NAMM and PL+S]. It’s the starting point of something we will develop with our customers.

We really are positioning ourselves to take advantage of whatever 3D format emerges, a format with a higher emotional impact. Many artists have said to us, the only way to really connect with the audience the way they want to is to play live – but if they had a format that captured that, so that users at home could listen to it in a way similar to actually being there, then they would have a higher engagement with the listeners. That’s when we got serious about bringing AMBEO to the market.

At NAMM you demonstrated a surround-style ‘tetra mic’, with its ‘virtual miking technique’ software, which could change the way things are recorded…

The interesting thing about this is that we have to combine different technologies in order to make the immersive experience perfect; to integrate different technologies to make the transition from reality to virtual reality seamless.

With third party involvement?

By presenting it in its initial stage, it’s an invitation to our customers to think ahead, whether that’s a possible approach for them, how they would use it, and to find new applications for it. It’s all software based at the moment – we have a virtualisation algorithm, an upmix algorithm – we don’t really have a hardware decoder at this point, but if we see a stronger need, we can go in that direction, too.

Let’s talk about Orpheus, the HE 1, the ‘world’s most expensive headphone’.

The HE 1 for us is a product, a statement, and an indication of our innovation culture, to a certain extent. We could have said, we still have the Orpheus from 1991, it’s still considered the best headphone in the world, why do something better? But part of our culture is to not be happy with anything that exists now, regardless of whether we invented it or not. About 10 years ago, we decided it was the time for the world to experience the next level. On one hand, it’s beyond common sense. But, on the other, by being so intensively on the limits of physics, we learn so much for other applications.

You make it sound like the Space Programme…

Yes, exactly, and this pushes the entire Sennheiser culture into new ways. Think about the effect this has at the company when a group of people bring out a flagship that will be there for another couple of decades. That has a huge motivational impact on the other employees; at the same time, it tells the industry that what exists is not good enough for Sennheiser, so we will push it forward.

I’ve heard the HE 1s. They make sound ‘visceral’, I would suggest.

People have ‘seen’ things, heard things which they haven’t heard before, or been able to describe.

Do you think they are worth $50,000?

[Immediately] Absolutely. No doubt.

What sort of reaction have you had to them?

A product like this is dividing: people who rave about it, others who say, Is it worth the money? But to me, it’s not the point: it’s about buying into an exclusivity which sets you apart, in a positive way, from the masses. It’s connoisseurship. From the feedback we’ve got, most of the customers who are interested in the HE 1 are audiophiles who say, Audio is my life.

The original Orpheus had a run of some 300 units. When HE 1 ships later this year, will that be limited to 300 too?

We are not planning any limitation this time: but it is limited by the price and the capacity – making one per day – and the level of customisation. We have significant requests for customised versions.

You mean I can have them in pink?

Someone wants it in solid jade instead of marble, for instance. The exclusivity includes the concept of a one-off product, as long as the sound properties are not affected.

How many do you think you’ll be making?

We have more than 50 ordered. I don’t believe it’s going to stop at 100 or 200. I personally believe that it’s something that’s going to be with you for life, and we will offer servicing on it so it will be with you as long as you want to enjoy it.

Turning to the other end of the market, consumer headphones: it’s an increasingly aggressive and crowded marketplace. What is Sennheiser doing there?

We’re trying to be more focused on specific target groups. With the Momentum line, for example, we are targeting a specific type of personality, people who have a certain style and way of expressing themselves. We’re not just looking at price points and shelf space, and that will set us apart from just having X metres of headphone hangers.

You put into place a ‘selective distribution’ model a couple of years ago – other makes have done that too…

It ensures that the brand is represented in the appropriate way. If [our models] were at a cash-and-carry checkout for five pounds [six euros], it would just damage the brand. You can’t credibly have a product like that and the HE 1.

Are you worried that brands like Beats are changing the market?

It’s not necessarily a concern – it is, rather, keeping us on our toes. That increasingly competitive environment was beneficial in two ways: one, it grew the market; two, it forced us to think what Sennheiser is all about, what is at our core, what is our heritage. We’re the only ones to have the 1968 invention of the open-back HD 414 headphone; we’re the only one that has the innovation culture and heritage. How can we use that to be more relevant and have a higher value for the customer? So, with the success of the Momentum line, the higher end HD 800 line, the professional headphones – the HD 25 still being an icon – this process has been healthy for us because it gave us a stronger sense of identity which we are able to communicate.

How successful has the D9000 digital wireless system been?

It’s a huge success, especially in the last year where the ‘Digital Dividend’ [spectrum sell-off] in Japan gave us extra demand and business. Digital 9000 is successful beyond our initial imagination for a simple reason: we positioned and developed it as a system to be used on stage for singers and touring, because it was so flexible. But the corporate world has discovered it, because of its high-level encryption and flexibility in use. We saw a lot of companies adopt it, such as a major American retail chain. There’s a huge market there.

Since you and your brother Daniel became joint CEOs three years ago, you’ve restructured the company. I get the impression, some of that has been easy, and some of it has been hard. Is that correct?

We went from a territorial approach to a sales channel approach. In Europe, there’s no borders for commerce. Consumer is one part, professional is another, and so on.

In a reorganisation like that, you always have a working assumption. Sometimes you assume, sometimes you just hope for the best. The reorganisation was a great success, especially with the feedback we got from our customers. Did everything work out like we planned? With a change of that magnitude, we discovered things we had to fine-tune. That was a learning experience. For us it was more important to go in the direction that makes sense for the future rather than stay with something we know but might not be any longer relevant.

Some of your ideas were quite radical: staff had to look at their roles within the company and say, this is what I do, and this is what I want to do…

You are spot on. We had hundreds of people in new roles, so there was an element of change management.

…Which can be difficult.

Absolutely! And I have empathy with people who are uncertain for a period, who have to find their role and it’s not all clear from Day One. But part of our culture is to go through changes with our employees, and that means everyone can design their future and their fate, which brings the downside of uncertainty with it.

But some people don’t want to do that.

Yes, but it’s part of our nature to involve people in their own destiny rather than giving them 100% certainty but no influence.

The impression I got from the staff video, made for the company’s 70th anniversary last year, is that your employees are pleased to be a part of the Sennheiser phenomenon. The smiles from the people in the factory were natural, not forced.

The passion and commitment, the joy of what we do is everywhere at Sennheiser. And that’s really part of my personal motivation. Seeing people committed to that extent gives me a reason to go forward.

Do you ever feel the burden of the family legacy, though? When you wake up, do you ever think, [in panicked voice] ‘Oh God, I’m running Sennheiser!’…?

[Smiling broadly] With great responsibility comes a certain weight. You have to think about what is good for the company, the customers, the employees. There are moments of doubt and pressure, but all-in-all, what makes me so confident of getting up in the morning is that I’m not alone here, there are 2,700 people who are highly committed and enjoy what they do. It’s not on my shoulders, it’s on 2,700 pairs of shoulders making their own destiny. With that in my mind, it’s easy to get up and assume that responsibility.

Good answer! What do you think you still need to do at the company?

Become quicker, more nimble to reacting to customer feedback.

Sennheiser seems to think about what it’s going to do, thinks some more, and then makes its move. It took you ages to adopt Dante, for instance. That approach can be positive – but negative too.

If 80% of our decisions are well-thought through and strategically directed, that’s exactly what we need. In hindsight, we could have taken some decisions earlier. On the other hand, ‘German engineering and thinking’ takes time. What our next challenge will be, is to preserve the thoroughness of where we want to go, but add an element of ‘start-up’ activity. A start-up culture with 70 years of experience, if you will. If we can do that, then we will be even quicker when supplying the customers with what they want.

Last question: the factory is on fire – you run in and grab three items. What are they?

First, the photo of my grandfather [Fritz Sennheiser, who started the company]. Second, the Emmy Award. [In 2013, Sennheiser was awarded the Philo T. Farnsworth Award, presented to a company whose “contributions over time have significantly impacted television technology and engineering”.] Third, my trolley, which holds all the stuff I use for daily work…

But which one product do you put on that trolley?

The D9000.

Not a classic microphone or headphone?

D9000 is a statement of innovation, and is ‘classic’ at the same time. It’s one of a kind. It’s an icon. It shows all the competency that’s in this company.

Sennheiser Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sennheiser

Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG (/ˈsɛnhaɪzər/; branded Sennheiser) is a private German audio company specializing in the design and production of a wide range of both consumer and high fidelity products, including microphones, headphones, telephony accessories, and avionics headsets for consumer, professional, and business applications.

The company was founded in 1945, just a few weeks after the end of World War II, by Fritz Sennheiser (1912–2010)[2][3] and seven fellow engineers of the University of Hannover in a laboratory called Laboratorium Wennebostel (shortened, “Lab W”). The laboratory was named after the village of Wennebostel in the municipality of Wedemark to where it had been moved due to the war. Its first product was a voltmeter.[1] Lab W began building microphones in 1946 with the DM1, and began developing them in 1947 with the DM2. By 1955, the company had 250 employees, and had begun production of many products including but not limited to: geophysical equipment, the Noise-Compensated microphone (DM4), microphone transformers, mixers, and miniature magnetic headphones. Labor W was renamed ‘Sennheiser electronic’ in 1958.[citation needed]

In 1968, Sennheiser released the world’s first open headphones.[4] The introduction of open headphones affected the headphone market as they were able to produce a more natural sound that many users preferred.[5]

Sennheiser was transformed into a limited partnership (KG) in 1973. In 1980, the company entered the aviation market, supplying Lufthansa with headsets.[6][7]

The company began producing modern wireless microphones in 1982, the same year when founder Fritz Sennheiser handed the management of the company over to his son, Jörg Sennheiser. In 1987, Sennheiser was awarded at the 59th Academy Awards for its MKH 816 shotgun microphone.

Also in 1991, Georg Neumann GmbH, Berlin, which builds studio microphones, became a part of Sennheiser.[8][9]

In 1996, Sennheiser received an Emmy Award for its advancements in RF wireless technology.[10] Also in 1996, Sennheiser became a private limited company (GmbH and Co. KG). Since then, Sennheiser has maintained its tradition of high quality audio technology, and still maintains those high standards today. Professor Dr. Fritz Sennheiser died in 2010.

On July 1, 2013, Daniel Sennheiser and Andreas Sennheiser were promoted to the position of CEO responsible for Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG.[11]

In October 2013, Sennheiser received the prestigious Philo T. Farnsworth Award at the 65th Primetime Emmy®Engineering Awards in Hollywood.[12] In May 2014, Sennheiser founded a new competence center for innovative streaming solutions, Sennheiser Streaming Technology GmbH (SST).

Folks, something told me I had better get on down to see my main man Lou Colombo last week

in Fort Myers FL, I played on Lou’s band for 2.5 years in Cape Cod at the Wychmere Harbor Club

and Thompson’s Clam Bar in Harwich Port MA. It was an important time of my life and career and

he was always very generous to me, kept me on my toes throwing tunes at me in all keys the music

never stopped once we hit.

I just saw Lou a few days ago in Fort Myers FL at the gig he was playing at his Daughter Sherri’s restaurant

and hub Marc Neeley – Roadhouse Cafe, he was at the top of his game, playing great as ever and looking like a

million dollars. I am deeply saddened to receive terrible tragic news this morning from Lou’s fine trombonist

Nelson E. Foucht that Lou was tragically killed last night just 4 blocks from Roadhouse Cafe coming home from the

gig. My deepest condolences to the Colombo Family, Lou’s Wife Noel, daughters Lori, Sherri, David all his 6 kids, extended

Family of friends and musicians. I am totally blown away, thankful that I had the opportunity to know him and play with

him nightly back in the 70’s and then to see and hear him again at the end of his life, thanks Lou!

Here are some photos from just a few days taken by my long-time great girlfriend Jennifer and myself at his gig,

R.I.P. Big Lou – Louis Colombo the greatest trumpet player bandleader baseball slugger and golfer ever!

I used to go with Lou to the golf course where he had the snack concession in Yarmouth just to watch him drive

balls in to outer space. I couldn’t believe how far and hard he could hit the ball. Lou would put on black

executioner gloves and hit the ball and it would disappear, just keep on sailing in to the sky like Lou’s spirit

must be now. His music and great memories will live on forever.

Sincerely,

Jon Hammond – Member AFM Local 802 and Local 6 Musicians Union

*Note: Lou’s band the other night at Roadhouse Cafe were so great, I’m so sorry cats:

Nelson Foucht on trombone, F.L. “Woody” Brubaker piano and keyboard bass, Richard Iannuzzi drums and Gil DiBenedetto tenor saxophone and clarinet.

Jon Hammond and Lou Colombo

**Note: Lou Colombo and my neighbor Leo Ball (R.I.P.) also a fine trumpet player member of Local 802 were born on the same day in Brockton MA

*Note: Lou called me on my cell phone when I was at the airport just about to fly out of Tampa TPA Airport, he told me he really dug

my album that I had given him “NDR SESSIONS Projekt” my first record of mostly standards, it was inspired much by him actually. Lou

was talking about the horn players on it, Lutz Buechner and Joe “Jo” Gallardo, he really dug them and he told me we were going to do

something back up in the Cape for sure. I was very touched by his call and he had called me on my previous birthday last year, I got

all choked up when he told me that. Thanks a million Lou!

„Organ meets Bigband“ das LaJJazzO M-V LandesJugendJazzOrchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern https://www.facebook.com/events/846845685410695/ Am 01.08.2015 ist das Landesjugendjazzorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LaJazzO MV) mit seinem diesjährigen Solisten Jon Hammond wieder im Klostergarten Rostock zu Gast. Covering Jimmy Smith’s Back at The Chicken Shack and The Sermon – Nachdem sich in den vergangenen Jahren das LaJazzO MV mit den in der Big Band vorkommenden Instrumenten musikalisch auseinandersetzte, wird in 2015 die Jazzorgel musikalisch thematisiert werden. Unter dem Titel “Organ meets Big Band” wird dieses sehr traditionsreiche Instrument der Jazzgeschichte in den Mittelpunkt der Konzertreihe im folgenden Jahr gestellt. Als Jazzinstrument wurde es von Fats Waller in den 30er Jahren eingeführt und hatte seine Hochzeit in den 50er Jahren durch seine Vertreter wie Jimmy Smith. Der international renommierte New Yorker Jazzorganist Jon Hammond wird zusammen mit dem LaJazzO MV unter der Leitung von Michael Leuschner den besonderen Charme dieses Instrumentes wieder zum Leben erwecken. Im Programm sind unter anderem Titel von Jimmy Smith, arrangiert von Steve Gray – eine Leihgabe aus dem Archiv der NDR-Bigband.

Jon Hammond studierte in den siebziger Jahren am Berklee College of Music und am City College San Francisco. Konzertreisen führten ihn quer durch die Vereinigten Staaten und Kanada. In seiner eigenen ‘Jon Hammond Show’ spielte er mit Musikern wie Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Butterfield, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, Sammy Davis Jr., Percy Sledge und vielen anderen. Auch in Europa fand und findet seine Musik unverändert viele Anhänger. Die Medien berichten wiederholt von einem unverwechselbaren und prägenden Sound. Jon Hammond hat u.a. auf der 20. Frankfurter Musikmesse mitgewirkt und tritt vornehmlich in Hamburg auf. “The Jon Hammond Show” is a funky, swinging Jazz instrumental revue, featuring notable international soloists and reflecting the influences of Miles Davis, The Crusaders and Jimmy Smith.

JON HAMMOND: “WHERE’S THE GIG?”
https://afm6.org/member-profile/jon-hammond-wheres-the-gig/
“Every time I see a musician walking down the street I say, ‘Hey, where’s the gig?’ Because it doesn’t matter what kind of music you play, if you’re carrying an instrument–going to a rehearsal, or coming back from a repair shop, whatever it is–we all need our gigs. And that’s what the union is all about. Hopefully, we can all keep working and be supportive of everybody’s gigs. There’s room for everybody.”

Jon Hammond is a musician, composer, bandleader, publisher, journalist, TV show host, radio DJ, and multi-media entrepreneur. He currently travels the world, playing gigs and attending trade shows.

THE EARLY YEARS
Jon Hammond was born in Chicago in 1953. His father was a doctor and his mother was a housewife. They both played the piano. In 1957, his parents moved Jon and his four sisters to Berkeley, CA, where his father worked in a hospital as head of the emergency room. When he was nine, Jon started accordion lessons. “In those days, they had studios where parents would drop their kids off after school for tap dancing and accordion lessons. There were accordion bands and they would compete against each other.”

Jon played his first gig at a senior citizens luncheon when he was eleven. Not only did he get a free lunch but he was paid $25 –a lot of money in those days. Jon says his father was supportive, but did not want him to pursue a music career. “He told me that music was a great hobby. He got me a wonderful professional accordion for my Bar Mitzvah, directly from John Molinari, one of the greatest accordionists who ever lived. It was a Guilietti Professional Tone Chamber accordion. That’s the accordion I won Jr. Jazz Champion on in 1966.”

In high school, Jon attended a private boys school in San Francisco. He was a class clown, and when it got to the point where he was going to be expelled, Jon took his accordion and ran away from home. He immersed himself in the San Francisco music scene and started playing organ in several bands. By 1971 he was in a four piece rock group called Hades which shared a rehearsal space with Quicksilver Messenger Service. “I was friends with their manager, Ron Polte, who also managed guitarist John Cipollina. We got to open for his band, Copperhead.”

Jon in the early 70s
Jon in the early 70s

Jon continued to play gigs in the Bay Area in different configurations, including a few gigs with a young Eddie Money. By this time Jon had become frustrated with the Bay Area scene. One night while playing a biker bar he got into a fight and his band didn’t come to his defense. “That was the last straw. I was angry and I said I wasn’t coming back.”

Jon moved to Boston in 1973 to attend the Berklee School of Music. He also got a gig playing in Boston’s Combat Zone backing up burlesque shows. When Jon saw one of his idols, pianist Keith Jarrett play in New York he told him he was going to Berklee and asked him for advice. “Keith looked me right in the eye and said ‘Berklee can be very dangerous for your music.’ It was like he popped this huge bubble. Years later I came to understand what he was talking about. You have to learn the fundamentals, but the music itself comes from a much deeper place. They can’t teach that, you have to find it yourself.”

When Jon’s teachers began sitting in on his gigs in Boston, he questioned why he was in school if the teachers were coming to play with him. He quit school, moved to Cape Cod and started playing with bandleader Lou Colombo. “He did all the private parties for Tip O’Neill. We played what they used to call the business man’s beat. On the gig it was forbidden to swing. It was like swing cut in half. So if you tried to go with the four, Lou would say, ‘Don’t swing it, don’t swing it.’ He pounded it into my head night after night.”

LATE RENT
In 1981 Jon took a trip to Paris where he broke through his writers block and wrote some of his best music. He returned to New York with his new tunes and started a production company with the idea of getting a record deal for a friend that had played on a #1 hit record. After months of pounding the pavement with no results, Jon realized he had better work on his own music before his money ran out. He took the last of his savings, including his upcoming rent money, and went into the studio to record what came to be known as “The Late Rent Sessions”.

The session had Todd Anderson on tenor sax, Barry Finnerty on guitar, Stephen Ferrone on drums, and Jon on B3. They recorded at Intergalactic, the last studio that John Lennon recorded in. Jon had no luck getting a record deal for his new project, but he did get gigs in New York with his band Jon Hammond and the Late Rent Session Men.

In 1982, Jon found out about public access television and the idea that anyone could produce a show and get it on TV. He started broadcasting on Manhattan’s public station in 1984. “I decided I was going to produce a radio show on TV. The first episodes showed just my tapping foot and my voice. It was a gimmick. We had graphics that were synchronized to go with the music. It worked out well. People dug it.” Within a few weeks, Jon was interviewed and featured in Billboard Magazine. The Jon Hammond Show was considered an alternative to the clips on Cable TV. “MTV was still in its infancy. We had a concept that was revolutionary. My phone started ringing and we were the hot kids on the block.”

LIVING ABROAD
Jon continued to play gigs in New York and produce his TV show. In 1987, he went to his first trade show (NAMM) where he was introduced to Mr. Julio Guilietti, the man who built his accordion. He then began traveling to trade shows and making contacts with musicians and companies around the world, including Hammond Suzuki. “They gave me the Hammond XB-2, the first really powerful portable Hammond organ. Glenn Derringer, one of my all-time heroes, presented it to me. I got one of the first. Paul Shaffer from the Letterman Show got the other. At the time there was only one EXP-100 expression pedal–we had to share the pedal. I used the pedal for my gigs and when Paul needed it I would bring it over to him at 30 Rockefeller Center on my bicycle.”

In the early 90s, when his New York gigs began drying up, Jon was encouraged to go to Germany. “It was a hard time. My father had just died and there were very few gigs. I got the XB-2 organ right when I needed it, so I decided to take a chance. I bought a roundtrip ticket to Frankfurt with an open return. I went with 50 bucks and stayed for a year. When I came back, I had 100 bucks.”

Jon stayed at a friend’s house and played a borrowed accordion on the street until he could get a band together. “I played on the street until my fingers turned blue and would collect enough money to get some fish soup. After about two weeks I got a call—I had put a band together and had 3 gigs coming up. A TV show had heard my story and wanted to do a story on me. At the first gig 19 people came; the second only 15 people came. Then I got the little spot on TV. When I came to the third gig people were lined up down the street. When I walked up I thought they were having an art exhibit. When they said, ‘No, they’re waiting for you.’ I choked up, I couldn’t even talk. So I’ve been playing there every year since. The people in Germany really saved my musical career at a time when very few things were happening for me in New York or San Francisco. I have a really good following in Europe. I keep busy as a musician in the States, playing hospitals and assisted living places, but my band dates I pretty much play overseas.”

Jon’s Late Rent Sessions was eventually released on a German label and received modest airplay. During the 90s he travelled back and forth to Europe, spending a year playing gigs in Paris, and eventually settling in Hamburg. Since then he has released two more albums and has played gigs in Moscow, Shanghai, and Australia. With the help of the internet, Jon is able to produce his TV show anywhere.

PRESENT DAY
In the mid-2000s Jon produced Hammondcast, a radio program for CBS that aired in San Francisco at four in the morning and was rebroadcast before Oakland A’s games. “When the baseball games played in the afternoon, my show would play for about 20 minutes and then it was pre-empted. I had a lot of fun with that.” His guests included Danny Glover, Barry Melton from Country Joe & the Fish, and many local people. “It took me awhile to figure out that I had permission to broadcast anything I wanted. I could play the London Philharmonic or Stevie Wonder. My tag line was ‘Hello, Hello, Hello! Wake up or go back to sleep…’”

Today, Jon continues to visit tradeshows and is determined to keep doing everything he does as long as he can. “I made a pact with my longtime co-producer, guitarist Joe Berger, that we are going to go to these trade shows until we are little old men with canes.”

Jon has released four CDs

Wiki:
The Tubes is a San Francisco-based rock band whose 1975 debut album included the hit single “White Punks on Dope”. During its first fifteen years or so, the band’s live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics.[citation needed] They are perhaps best remembered for their 1983 single “She’s a Beauty”, a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV; and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song “Dancin'” opposite a big band.
