“Introduction and Words about Gregg Gronowski for Sound Soul Summit for Gregg – Arcada Theatre – Jon Hammond at the microphone and Organ
Good evening St. Charles! We are here this evening to honor Gregg Gronowski and send up our music straight from the heart – I know everybody here in the Arcada Theatre was touched by Gregg and the amazing work he did with Hammond in just a few years working together with Scott, Ray Gerlich and Hammond USA Team and Suzuki Musical Instruments Team since he took over Sales and Marketing in 2012 – Gregg was a fine musician and a fine person – always professional and Gregg had a very special type of dry humor which I came to appreciate — I am proud to call him a friend – that I miss very much!
Let’s get right down to some music, I’m very happy to introduce on Tenor Saxophone: Steven Eisen – Drums: Sam Jewell, Joe Berger – guitar and yours truly at the Hammond organ.
This tune is from my first album, it’s entitled “Lydia’s Tune” – I wrote it in Paris in 1981 – Thanks Gregg & Lori and everybody for coming together for this here in the Arcada, thanks Ron Onesti for this fine bandstand and hospitality!
Program:
1. Lydia’s Tune
2. Cookin’ at the Arcada
3. (Late Rent chaser)? – 10 minutes ”

“Hammond organ concert to benefit family of Gregg Gronowski”
Kathy Cichon
Elgin Courier-News
The Hammond organ seems to inspire not just loyalty amongst the musicians who play it, but also a spirit of camaraderie.

“It’s not joining the Elks or the Moose Lodge or something, but it is a fraternity/sorority… People helping and coming together. A lot of this was formed by Gregg. If you needed help, Gregg was there to help,” said Scott May, organist for the Ides of March and project manager/artist liaison for Hammond USA. “That selflessness and brotherhood became the order of the day, and it’s been wonderful to have that with so many artists and so many big names. It started with Gregg, and now we perpetuate.”
More than 20 Hammond artists will come to together Wednesday, Feb. 22 at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles for the sixth annual Hammond Sound Soul Summit. The concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m., features musicians from across the genres including rock, jazz, pop, Gospel and more. During this year’s Summit – the first time the event is held in the Chicago area – they will celebrate the life of Gregg Gronowski, Hammond USA’s director of sales and marketing. Gronowski, who is credited with helping to create the family-like relationship among the Hammond musicians that’s affectionately dubbed “HamFam,” died in August 2016 following a massive stroke. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Gronowski’s family.

“He was a great guy, a special guy. He’s brought together this Hammond family,” said Robby Robinson, longtime music director for Frankie Valli. “He was kind of the Papa Bear of the HamFam. All of this Hammond organ people have this affinity and brotherhood so to speak, that it really is kind of a family. It’s really special, and I’m so blessed to be a part of it.”
The night of music features what May calls “an unprecedented lineup” of Hammond musicians across a variety of musical genres.

“You don’t get to see these artists together in one place. You’ll never see Mark Stein from Vanilla Fudge and Dr. Lonnie Smith together in the same show,” May said. “You’ll never see some of the Gospel artists and some of the rock artists together in the same show. It demonstrates the depth of Hammond family and the camaraderie we have.”

Among those performing are jazz legend Dr. Lonnie Smith, Mark Stein of Vanilla Fudge, Emiko, Rev. Jimmie Smith, Red Young of Eric Burdon’s The Animals, Kevin McKendree of the Brian Setzer and Delbert McClinton bands, Yates McKendree, former Tower of Power musician Ellis Hall, Kim Tibbs, Jon Hammond, Jim Afredson, Tommy Leershen, Justin Dillard, Anthony Williams of the Bobby Jones Gospel TV show, Marine LaCoste of Uncle Kracker, Gary Swan from Etta James’ band, Steven Eaklor, Peter Gallinari of Leslie West’s and Richie Scarlett’s bands and Jim Kozak. Also performing is May with the Ides of March featuring Jim Peterik, as well as Robinson with members of the Jersey Boys cast.

“We’re going to do a medley of Frankie Valli songs,” Robinson said. “I’ve been living those songs for ever and ever. ”

During the Summit, musical equipment donated by Addison-based Hammond – including an organ – will be raffled, with those proceeds also going to Gronowski’s family.

“Gregg was very, very special to the company. He wasn’t a keyboard player, he was a bass player by trade,” May said. “He learned a lot about the instrument and did a lot to bring the company up to a modern level.”

Robinson said Gronowski was a genuinely warm person who connected with everyone, and that he had a real passion for music and the Hammond organ. That passion for Hammond is something Robinson shares.

“I’ve been playing Hammond since the 60s. I own eight Hammond organs,” said Robinson, who is also a composer and producer.

What is it about the instrument that inspires such devotion?

“There is no other organ in pop music or rock music or Gospel music that has become the standard bearer for the instrument in any of those genres. It just doesn’t happen,” Robinson said. “It’s a one of a kind instrument. It’s hard to quantify exactly … but there’s no doubt that anybody who is Hammond organ player has a love affair with the instrument.

“I love to play piano but when I sit down at the Hammond organ, it’s the most fun thing I do in music,” he said. “There’s a special connection that I cannot articulate what it is, because it’s such an emotional experience that it’s hard to define it. But it is consistent and it is real.”

And during the Sound Soul Summit, audience members will have a chance to share that experience when the artists perform.

“Guitarists get all the press. Everybody loves guitar players. They get all the press and all the action. The keyboard players kind of sit back,” May said. “Now this is time for the keyboard players to step to the front of the stage and shine.”

Organ Meets Bigband in The Zeughaus Wismar – Camera: Heinz Lichius Am 30.07.2015 ist das Landesjugendjazzorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LaJazzO MV) mit seinem diesjährigen Solisten Jon Hammond in der Hansestadt Wismar zu Gast.
https://www.facebook.com/events/1625578051045838/
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 Grey – 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.

L to R Rick Andrson, Jon Hammond, Prairie Prince
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.

Jon Hammond visit with his piano teacher Tony Germain:
“So good to see my piano teacher main man Tony Germain 40 years later from the first day we met on Scheduling Day 1973, looking good Tony! Greatest piano and Hammond organ teacher folks!

Tony taught so many players well and created the organ department (long story!) Chairing the PIano Department, (he has a nice chair in his office and superb Steinway Grand Piano) – if you are lucky enough to be a student at Berklee and get to study with Tony Germain, then you are living under the lucky star – Tony is the Man!! Thanks for everything you showed me Tony, straightened me out big time” – Jon Hammond
*Return of the Student –

Here I am with my Piano Teacher main man Tony Germain 40 years to the day later from the first time we sat down together folks – interview coming soon, many thanks Tony! Jon Hammond
http://www.berklee.edu/people/tony-germain
Position: Assistant Chair
Department: Piano

Tony’s Steinway Grand Piano

“I think I might have been one of Berklee’s first graduates with what today is called the performance major in piano. So as assistant chair, I have a vested interest in making sure we’re still preparing piano, keyboard, and organ students, without being in any way style prejudiced. I also took the position to have a little bit more involvement with the curriculum—to see what I could personally add or help create.”

“When I went to Berklee, Ted Pease, Phil Wilson, and Mike Rendish were my role models and my teachers. They set the standard for what I’d become and how I would teach. They were all very good to me, and I could see how much they loved it. Here at Berklee, I’m giving back to something that has given me everything. I often describe Berklee as a musical Fantasy Island. I just don’t know where else I’d be happy.”

“Prior to becoming assistant chair of the Piano Department, I taught pretty much everything across the board for 33 years: harmony, ear training, arranging, ensembles. I created the Harmonic Ear Training course and taught it from about 1978 until I became assistant chair. I’m equally in love with private and classroom teaching, and have done it all my adult life. I probably get more out of it than my students do. But hopefully I inspire students to further their interests in whichever style of performance they desire—it’s my job to prepare them for the long haul. I still teach Survey of Piano Styles: History of Jazz Piano. I didn’t want to give it up. And I didn’t want to not teach entirely, because you lose touch if you’re out of the classroom.”

Career Highlights
B.M., Berklee College of Music
Performances with Judy Garland, Herb Pomeroy, Joe Hunt, and Dick Johnson

Hamamatsu Japan — i-Real demo is un-real! (by Toyota)
future is now – http://www.toyota-global.com/innovation/personal_mobility/i-real.html – Jon Hammond
i-REAL
Personal mobility that expands opportunities to meet “REAL” people, enjoy nature, and make traveling freer, more fun, and more comfortable.

The new personal mobility i-REAL was developed with the intention of increasing opportunities to enjoy encounters with a variety of people and objects by enabling movement. Development of this new type of mobility was unconstrained by conventional car manufacturing concepts.
The i-REAL was developed in order to decrease the environmental impact and energy consumption associated with individual daily travels. It runs on electricity up to 30 kilometers (approx. 18.6 miles) per charge. It is a three-wheeled vehicle, with two wheels in the front and one in the back, and is capable of switching driving modes between walking mode and cruising mode.

Hammond Jr. – Youth Organ rocks! Jon Hammond
Product Description
The Hammond organ youth!

The contents are it-oriented in earnest in appearance though they are pretty!
It is with nine draw bars, percussion function and can give surprisingly real organ sound! Even if a keyboard becomes insufficient, there is no problem if I connect it to the keyboard that there is much number of more keyboards because MIDI IN is carried!
To Hammond square, 259 tones have sound effects to be usable in a drama or a picture-story show built-in.
It is the keyboard which anyone can enjoy from “an adult to a child”♪
14 ensemble tones that it was selected carefully.
It “is great that but children play that I want to add a wind instrument to an instrumental ensemble”…Hammond square solves such a trouble. I can play the tone of the base musical instrument that a musical performance musical instrument and the sum musical instrument of the performance hard to please, transportation are great with a keyboard easily, and width of the ensemble opens.
In the tone that I repeat a draw bar tone, and is solid.
Can put the draw bar tone on a bus tone and an ensemble tone, and the thickness of the sound increases, and is solid; sound. When the harmonic overtone ingredient of the Hammond organ is piled up, each sound becomes rich.
It is equipped with a tone of the bus master. I can use it as a base musical instrument to be able to carry.
When a low tone was solid, was solid-looking, and the ensemble was finished; is played. Therefore I will use Hammond square as a base musical instrument. I connect Hammond square to a base amplifier and a keyboard amplifier, and it is changed quickly by a base musical instrument when I utilize a bus master tone and a bus tone. Ensemble becomes a more substantial thing.
Specifications
A sound source: VASEIII,128bit

Jon Hammond speaking with Neil Portnow, President of NARAS – in Hollywood CA at ASCAP Expo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Portnow
Neil’s Wiki Neil R. Portnow (born 1948, New York City) is the current president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). Portnow was formerly the vice-president of the West Coast division of Jive Records.
Portnow grew up in Great Neck, New York. He played bass guitar in a high school rock band, The Savages,[1] who released a 45rpm record “Cheating on me”/”Best thing you ever had”[2] on Red Fox Records that did not achieve serious commercial success, but was subsequently included in a compilation of garage bands.[3]
He graduated from The George Washington University in 1971.[4] He started out as a record producer and music supervisor. He worked with RCA Records as staff producer, as vice-president of A&R at Arista and EMI America . He was senior vice-president and then president at 20th Century Records.
He started working with Jive Records in 1989. He oversaw the expansion of their West Coast operation, making Jive a groundbreaking, successful label. Jive thrived under his leadership as Vice-President of the West Coast division and spearheaded the careers of some of the biggest acts of the late 1990s and early 2000s. He worked alongside Jive’s president Clive Calder who ran Jive’s parent company, the Zomba Label Group.
Portnow worked as music supervisor on three films: Permanent Record (1988), A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989), and Wired (1989), in which he also appeared briefly as a bandleader.

Hamburg Germany — No more bungee jumping off of the Heinrich-Hertz-Turm folks! – Jon Hammond

“After the observation platform and restaurant were closed (due to asbestos decontamination), former stuntman Jochen Schweitzer had a bungee jumping base installed. The restaurant will not open again due to new fire escape regulations, the bungee platform was closed at the end of 2001.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich-Hertz-Turm
The Heinrich-Hertz-Turm (named after the German physicist and Hamburg-born Heinrich Hertz) is a radio telecommunication tower and a famous landmark of Hamburg, Germany.
Designed by architect Fritz Trautwein, in co-operation with civil engineers Jörg Schlaich, Rudolf Bergermann and Fritz Leonhardt, it was built 1965–1968 for former Deutsche Bundespost (German Federal Post and Telecommunications Agency, now Deutsche Telekom ‘s subsidiary Deutsche Funkturm GmbH) near Planten un Blomen (a city park). With an overall height of 279,2 m (916 ft) it is Hamburg’s tallest building

R.I.P. Bill Graham – January 8, 1931 – October 25, 1991
I took this shot backstage, you can see in the foreground Jack Casady, I think Bill is speaking with Paul Kantner. To Bill’s left is Wavy Gravy with the cowboy hat and American Flag suit. A huge loss to all the music community!
The last time I ran in to Bill, it was about 3.30AM in the morning at The Carnegie Deli in New York City – he was unshaven and looked tired, but he wanted his corned beef sandwich in the middle of the night. I was in Frankfurt Germany when I got the horrible news of his helicopter crash 10/25/1991, rest in peace Bill – Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Graham_(promoter)
Born Wolodia Grajonca
January 8, 1931
Berlin, Germany
Died October 25, 1991 (aged 60)
Vallejo, California, U.S.
Occupation Rock promoter
Years active 1960s–1991; his death
Graham was born Wolodia Grajonca in Berlin,[1] the son of Frieda (née Sass) and Yankel Grajonca, an engineer.[2] He was given the nickname Wolfgang by his family early in his life.[3] He was the youngest son of a lower-middle-class Jewish family that had emigrated from Russia prior to the rise of Nazism.[4][5] Graham’s father died two days after his son’s birth.[6] Graham’s mother placed her son and his younger sister in an orphanage in Berlin due to the increasing peril to Jews in Germany. The orphanage sent them to France in a pre–Holocaust exchange of Jewish children for Christian orphans. Graham’s older sisters stayed behind with his mother. After the fall of France, Graham was among a group of Jewish orphans spirited out of France, some of whom finally reached America. But a majority of the children—including Graham’s older sister Tolla—did not survive the difficult journey. Graham thus was one of the One Thousand Children, (OTC), those mainly Jewish children who managed to flee Hitler and Europe and then came directly to America, but whose parents were forced to stay behind. Nearly all these OTC parents were murdered “by Hitler”. Graham’s mother was murdered in Auschwitz. Graham had five sisters, Rita, Evelyn, Sonja, Ester and Tolla, only two of whom survived. Ester moved to the United States and was very close to Graham in his later life. His sister Rita escaped, first to Shanghai and then (after the war) to the United States.[citation needed]
Once in the United States, Graham stayed in a foster home in The Bronx in New York City. After being taunted as an immigrant and being called a Nazi because of his German accented English, Graham first worked on his accent, eventually being able to speak in a perfect New York accent, and also changed his name to be more “American.” (He found “Graham” in the phonebook, it was closest to his real surname “Grajonca.” According to Graham, both “Bill” and “Graham” were meaningless to him). Graham graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School and then obtained a business degree from City College.[7][8] He was later quoted as describing his training as that of an “efficiency expert[disambiguation needed]”.
Graham was drafted into the United States Army in 1951, and served in the Korean War, where he was awarded both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Upon his return to the States he worked as a waiter/maître d’ in Catskill Mountain resorts in upstate New York during their heyday. He was later quoted as saying his experience as a maître d’ and with the poker games he hosted behind the scenes was good training for his eventual career as a promoter. Tito Puente, who played some of these resorts, went on record once saying that Graham was avid to learn Spanish from him, but only cared about the curse words.[9] It was during the 1950s that Graham became a champion mambo dancer in the mambo clubs of New York City.
Career

Graham in 1974
Graham moved from New York to San Francisco in the early 1960s to be closer to his sister, Rita. He was invited to attend a free concert in Golden Gate Park, where he made contact with the San Francisco Mime Troupe, a radical theater group. He gave up a promising business career to manage the troupe in 1965. After Mime Troupe leader Ronnie Davis was arrested on obscenity charges during an outdoor performance, Graham organized a benefit concert to cover the troupe’s legal fees. The concert was a success, and Graham saw a business opportunity.[11][12]
Graham began promoting more concerts to raise funds for the Mime Troupe and eventually left the troupe to promote concerts full-time. Charles Sullivan was a mid-20th century black entrepreneur and businessman in San Francisco who owned the master lease on the Fillmore Auditorium. Bill approached Charles to put on the Second Mime Troupe appeals concert at the Fillmore Auditorium on December 10, 1965 using Sullivan’s dance hall permit for the show. Graham later secured a contract from Sullivan for the open dates at the Fillmore Auditorium in 1966. Graham credits Sullivan with giving him his break in the music promotion business. Charles Sullivan was found murdered on August 2, 1966, south of Market Street in San Francisco. To this day the murder remains unsolved.
One of the first concerts Graham promoted was in partnership with Chet Helms of the Family Dog organization and featured the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. The concert was an overwhelming success and Graham saw an opportunity with the band.[14] Early the next morning, Graham called the band’s manager, Albert Grossman, and obtained exclusive rights to promote them. Shortly thereafter, Chet Helms arrived at Graham’s office, asking how Graham could have cut him out of the deal. Graham pointed out that Helms would not have known about it unless he had tried to do the same thing to Graham and advised him to “get up early” in the future.[citation needed]
A charismatic but often difficult personality, Graham produced shows attracting elements of America’s now legendary counterculture of the time such as Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Country Joe and The Fish, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, The Committee, The Fugs, Allen Ginsberg, and, a particular favorite of Graham’s, The Grateful Dead. He was the manager of Jefferson Airplane during 1967 and 1968. His successes and popularity allowed him to become the top concert promoter in rock music. He operated the famous venues the Fillmore West and Winterland (both in San Francisco) and the Fillmore East (in New York City), where the best up-and-coming acts would come to play. Graham also owned a record label, Fillmore Records, which was in operation from 1969 to circa 1976. Some of the artists who signed with Graham were Rod Stewart, Elvin Bishop and Cold Blood,[15] although of these it seems only Bishop actually issued albums on the Fillmore label.
In New York City, he formed a booking agency called The Millard Agency which organized the booking of bands into various venues across the US. Because his music venue was the Fillmore, it seemed obvious to call the booking agency Millard. (Millard Fillmore was the thirteenth president of the United States.) In his music venues, he also opened certain weekday nights for unknown bands, like Santana, to get exposure. Graham promoted the West-Coast leg of the legendary The Rolling Stones American Tour 1972, also known as S.T.P. Tour (for Stones Touring Party), as well as parts of the Rolling Stones 1975 and 1978 tours. He would then promote the entire Rolling Stones American Tour 1981 and Rolling Stones European Tour 1982. When the Stones returned to touring in 1989 with the Steel Wheels tour, Mick Jagger accepted the offer of Michael Cohl’s The BCL Group (Ballard Cohl Labatt).[16] to buy the concert, sponsorship, merchandising, radio, television, and film rights. Steel Wheels became the most financially successful in history. Graham later discovered that Cohl had offered only slightly more money. Graham took Jagger’s repudiation as a personal defeat, writing with eloquence and grace, “Losing the Stones was like watching my favorite lover become a whore.”[17]
In 1971, he closed the Fillmores on both coasts, citing a need to “find [himself]”. The movie Fillmore: The Last Days documents the closing of the Fillmore West. Graham retreated to a Greek island, but found the quietude disconcerting and later admitted being disappointed that no one there knew of him. He returned to promoting, first organizing concerts at smaller venues, like the Berkeley Community Theatre on the campus of Berkeley High School. He then leased out the Winterland Arena in San Francisco and promoted shows at the Cow Palace Auditorium in Daly City.[citation needed] In 1973 he promoted the largest outdoor concert at that time at Watkins Glen, New York with Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band and The Band. Over 600,000 paid were in attendance. He continued promoting stadium sized concerts at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco with Led Zeppelin in 1973 and started a series of stadium concerts at The Oakland Coliseum Stadium he called Day On The Green (DOG)in 1973 until 1992. Some of these concerts featured acts such as Grateful Dead and The Who in October of 1976, and Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan in 1987. His first large-scale outdoor benefit concert was for the San Francisco after-school programs, called the SNACK concert and starred Bob Dylan, with Neil Young, various members of the Grateful Dead and members of The Band.[11]
In the mid-1980s, in conjunction with the city of Mountain View, California, and Apple Inc. cofounder Steve Wozniak, he masterminded the creation of the Shoreline Amphitheatre, which became the premier venue for outdoor concerts in Silicon Valley. Throughout his career, Graham promoted benefit concerts.

Atlanta GA — CNN Center as seen from 60 floors up – Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNN_Center
The CNN Center is the world headquarters of the Cable News Network (CNN). The main newsrooms and studios for several of CNN’s news channels are located in the building. The facility’s commercial office space is occupied entirely by CNN and its parent company, Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner. The CNN Center is located in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia, adjacent to Centennial Olympic Park.
The CNN Center opened in 1976 as the Omni Hotel, which was a development by Cousins Properties Inc. as that was unsuccessful until CNN moved its headquarters there in 1987 from its Midtown Atlanta site (old home of the Progressive Club on 1050 Techwood Drive and home to Turner Broadcasting System).[1] The facility originally offered office space to various business tenants, as well as consulates over the years. The main floor featured an indoor ice skating rink, as well as a small number of restaurants and a Gold Mine video arcade. More famously, Sid and Marty Krofft built an indoor amusement park called The World of Sid and Marty Krofft, inspired by the creations of the popular children’s television producers. The park was the first indoor theme park and opened in 1976, it closed within six months. The complex also featured a multi-screen movie theater. For years, the theater offered showings of Gone with the Wind, Ted Turner’s favorite movie. The theater was replaced during renovations to put in a new newsroom for CNN’s website operations. The ice skating rink was filled in and a mosaic map of the world replaced it (featuring brass markers indicating the locations of CNN bureaus around the world). When CNN networks moved in in 1987, CNN Headline News (now known as HLN) was the first network to broadcast a show from it at 3.00 ET with its program # 96,115. Their sister channel started live programming at 6.00 ET of that day.

Debris from tornado in front of CNN Center
On March 14, 2008, a EF-2 [2] tornado passed through downtown Atlanta, damaging the CNN Center and leaving water and dust in the upper floors. The ceiling of the atrium was also damaged, causing water to pour in and partially flood the food court. CNN’s library was damaged, although it is unknown at the moment how much of its archives were damaged.[3] Numerous injuries and widespread damage were reported overall. The Omni Hotel, attached to the CNN Center, was evacuated as a precaution, and more than 400 rooms had to be emptied of occupancy for two weeks.

Atlanta GA from 60 floors up – Atlanta is the official capital of Georgia and is a city of Skyscrapers – Jon Hammond from 60 floors above Atlanta

List of tallest buildings in Atlanta:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tallest_buildings_in_Atlanta
Atlanta, the capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Georgia, is home to 256 completed high-rises,[1] 37 of which stand taller than 400 feet (122 m). The majority of the city’s skyscrapers are clustered around Peachtree Street in the Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead neighborhoods, with the suburban city of Sandy Springs also being the site of several skyscrapers. The tallest building in Atlanta is the 55-story Bank of America Plaza, which rises 1,023 feet (312 m) and was completed in 1992.[2] The Bank of America Plaza is also the tallest building in the United States outside of New York City and Chicago,[3] and the 9th-tallest building in the U.S. overall. The second-tallest building in Atlanta is SunTrust Plaza, which rises 871 feet (265 m).[4]
The history of skyscrapers in Atlanta began with the completion in 1892 of the Equitable Building.[5] The city later went through a major building boom that began in the 1980s and continued until the mid-1990s; the majority of the city’s skyscrapers, including its four tallest, have all been completed since 1985. Overall, Atlanta is the site of 15 completed buildings that are at least 492 feet (150 m) high. As of 2012, the skyline of Atlanta is ranked second in the Southeastern United States (behind Miami), seventh in the United States and 30th in the world with 56 buildings rising at least 330 feet (100 m) in height.[6] Of the 20 tallest buildings in Georgia, 18 are located in Atlanta;[7] the other two, Concourse Corporate Center V & VI are located in the neighboring city of Sandy Springs and stand as the tallest suburban buildings in the country.

The great Brazilian bassist Nilson Matta thanking the owner of the beautiful seasoned acoustic bass, before playing the hell out of it “Samba Meets Jazz!” at 4th annual JEN Jazz Education Network Conference – Atlanta GA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nilson_Matta
Nilson Matta is a premier Brazilian bassist and composer. He has been based in New York City since 1985. He is also known for his work with Trio Da Paz, Don Pullen African Brazilian Connection, Joe Henderson, Yo Yo Ma and Nilson Matta’s Brazilian Voyage.
Nilson’s latest project, called Nilson Matta’s Brazilian Voyage, is an exciting group playing many of Matta’s original songs mixed with Brazilian standards. For this album, Nilson called Harry Allen, Anne Drummond, Klaus Mueller, Ze Mauricio and Mauricio Zotterelli into the studio. The album, produced by Nilson and Luisa Matta is dedicated to his native country of Brazil. It literally takes the listener on a “Brazilian Voyage” through the many regions of that country.

Jon Hammond, bassist Bob Cranshaw, trumpeter Blake Martin at Local 802 Musicians Union stand at 4th annual JEN Jazz Education Network Conference – Bob Cranshaw’s career career spans the heyday of Blue Note Records to his recent involvement with the Musicians Union –

known to many as long-time bassist on Sesame Street TV Show – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Cranshaw
Melbourne R. “Bob” Cranshaw (born December 10, 1932, in Evanston, Illinois) is an American jazz bassist. His career spans the heyday of Blue Note Records to his recent involvement with the Musicians Union. He is perhaps best known for his long association with Sonny Rollins. Cranshaw has been in Rollins’s working band on and off for almost five decades, starting with the 1962 album The Bridge.
Some of Cranshaw’s best-known performances include on Lee Morgan’s The Sidewinder and Grant Green’s Idle Moments. Cranshaw also served as the sole session bassist to Sesame Street and The Electric Company songwriter and composer Joe Raposo, and played bass guitar on all songs, tracks, buttons and cues recorded by the Children’s Television Workshop during Raposo’s tenure.
Although he lacks the name recognition of other bassists, Cranshaw has performed and recorded with a wide range of leading jazz artists, including Ella Fitzgerald, Dexter Gordon, Grant Green, Coleman Hawkins, Jimmy Heath, Joe Henderson, Johnny Hodges, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, J.

Johnson, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley, Thelonious Monk, James Moody, Lee Morgan, Wes Montgomery, Oscar Peterson, Buddy Rich, George Shearing, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Shirley Scott, Stanley Turrentine, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, George Benson, and Joe Williams.
Along with Wes Montgomery’s brother Monk, Cranshaw was among the early jazz bassists to trade his upright bass for an electric bass. He was criticized for this by jazz purists, although he was forced to switch by a back injury incurred in a serious auto accident.
Throughout his long and distinguished career he has also performed on hundreds of television shows and film and television scores. He appears on The Blue Note Story, a 90-minute documentary of the famed jazz label.
Cranshaw was also a founding member of the short-lived MJT + 3 (Modern Jazz Two) that included Frank Strozier on alto saxophone, Harold Mabern on piano, Willie Thomas on trumpet, and Walter Perkins on drums. The Chicago-based group produced several albums, a number for Vee-Jay Records. Another vintage Cranshaw jam, 1964’s Blue Flames, featuring Shirley Scott, Stanley Turrentine and Otis Finch, was recorded for Prestige Records. Cranshaw also played live shows for tap dancer Maurice Hines, along with friend and drummer Paul Goldberg.
