Surprise scholarship aids Hayward pilot’s flight instruction dreams

“Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger shakes hands with Quincey Carr after presenting him with a certificate with which he may complete his training to become a flight instructor in Oakland, Calif., on Monday, Nov. 7, 2016. Carr, who was shot and paralyzed years ago, told his story to Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch (standing behind Sullenberger) who arranged for the Oakland Firefighters Random Acts charity to fund Carr’s flight education. (Kristopher Skinner/Bay Area News Group) ”
By George Kelly | gkelly@bayareanewsgroup.com
PUBLISHED: November 7, 2016 at 5:13 pm
“OAKLAND — “Whoa, whoa, oh my God!”

Quincey Carr cried out as he wheeled around full circle in his wheelchair as media and well-wishers quickly surrounded him at the corner of Hegenberger Road and Edgewater Drive near his job.

Only minutes before, an Oakland fire engine had pulled up to treat Carr in an attempt to distract him.
“They surprised me, they had the fire truck show up here and test my pulse and said ‘Are you OK?’” he said. “Then people just started swarming in, and I was like, ‘What is happening?’”

Carr, 32, of Hayward, was immediately surrounded by cameras and city leaders, including Mayor Libby Schaaf, and Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who presented him with a $10,000 scholarship check on behalf of Oakland Firefighters Random Acts to cover the cost of flight instruction classes.

“I’m just so happy that I can really devote all of the time in doing what I really want to do,” said Carr, who wields a bullhorn and signs six days a week to promote Ramos Furniture, a family-owned and operated chain of Northern California stores.

He came by his love of flight early with visits to his parents’ jobs at the Alameda Naval Air Station leading to model-plane collections, flight lessons and his own private pilot’s license at age 17 in 2002.

But tragedy struck on Aug. 11, 2006, when Carr, who learned he had passed his written exam for a commercial license, went out with his girlfriend to begin celebrations with a haircut at his regular barbershop on International Boulevard. When his girlfriend rebuffed a stranger’s flirting, the man left the shop but returned soon after with a gun and shot Carr three times, then fired two more shots into him on the floor.

Carr’s dreams were on hold. But he fought back through agonizing rehabilitation to teach ground instruction at a local flight school, take friends on occasional plane rides and play a weekly piano gig at a Union City hotel to make ends meet.
Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch said he met Carr earlier this year while visiting Ramos Furniture during a work break. It was after that chance meeting that Burch started thinking about how he could help Carr.

“We’re here to hopefully start him on a path to change his life. His dream has always been to be a flight instructor. Today, we’re here to help him realize his dream,” Burch said.

Larry Hendricks, a retired 30-year Oakland firefighter, said the mayor’s office contacted his nonprofit organization, Oakland Firefighters Random Acts, to help with Burch’s plan.

“When we heard (Burch) had taken the time to get the backstory of a guy hundreds of people had driven by in his wheelchair, it was a no-brainer for us,” Hendricks said.

At fire station No. 27 on Pardee Road, officials started talking about a scholarship that would allow Carr to train at Pacific States Aviation, a flight-based operator in Concord.

“I’ve known Quincey for more than 15 years,” Rashid Yahya, Pacific States vice president and chief pilot, said. “He still flies out of our academy using a special apparatus. I’m really glad we can help Quincey with his passion for flying and teaching. Once he gets his certificate, he can teach any student from private to commercial how to fly.”

Sullenberger praised Random Acts and all others who helped raise funds for Carr’s equipment and training.

“When I became a flight instructor when I was 20 years old, I very quickly realized it’s one thing to be able to accomplish something, to achieve a certain level of performance, but it’s quite another to, in very granular fashion, break that down into component parts and explain it to someone so they can begin to do it,” said Sullenberger, who lavished praise on Carr’s determination and perseverance in pursuing his flight instruction dreams.

“I’m going to tell him today that forever after when I see a small plane overhead, I’m going to say ‘I wonder if that’s Quincey?’”

HAMMOND® XK-5
“THE NEW ORIGINAL”
The HAMMOND B-3TM organ and its siblings such as the C-3TM and A-100TM have been the single most influential keyboard instruments in musical history, perhaps apart from the acoustic piano. When paired with the spinning Leslie® speaker, the HAMMOND’s sonic versatility defined the electrified keyboard sound of genres from rock to soul to Gospel to jazz. This sound is as sought after today as ever.
With the XK-5 and Heritage Series, HAMMOND is proud to announce that we’ve closed the final millimeters of the realism gap—in terms of both sound and feel—in a form factor that’s far more portable and affordable than a vintage Hammond organ. We are very proud of this instrument for providing an absolutely authentic playing experience that will meet the demands of even the most seasoned B-3 purist. Frankly, we feel it has no peer among today’s keyboard offerings.
“It’s very important to feel comfortable sitting at the organ. Sometimes I play an organ and it doesn’t feel like what I’m used to. First of all, [The XK-5] feels like
a B-3, just sitting at it.” – Dr. Lonnie Smith, legendary jazz organist
“It’s a Hammond B3! That’s what most of us want in
essence. But to be able to go beyond that and have all these incredible adjustments … I’m in love!” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)
Let’s face it: Moving and maintaining an antique Hammond will only become more difficult as time passes. Of course we have tons of respect for anyone who does, but to get all of the sound with none of the hassle, let’s learn why the XK-5 is destined to become The New OriginalTM
.
NEW PATENT-PENDING TECHNOLOGIES
The engineering team we’ve dedicated to the Hammond sound for over 30 years went back to the drawing board for nearly everything about the new XK-5, analyzing many classic organs and poring over original diagrams and blueprints that only we possess. Here are some of the biggest new ideas in the new Hammond XK-5.
2|Page
Hybrid Multiple Key Contact System: On classic Hammonds (and in our current, full-sized New B-3 Mk. II family), pressing a key closes nine mechanical contacts: one for each drawbar. Your ears usually hear the multiple harmonics as one note. Depress a key slowly, however, and you can hear the harmonics come in at slightly different times. Normal playing created a subtle “slop” between otherwise crisp attacks, and the more drawbars you pull out, the more of an almost subliminal but chewy and soulful character it impacts to the sound. One perhaps feels this more than hears it, but seasoned players certainly notice its absence.
You can’t accomplish this with a single MIDI note-on, which is what most of today’s organ and synth key actions use. In the XK-5, we use three mechanical contacts at different points in the keys’ travel. Each of these in turn triggers three virtual contacts, giving you separate “note on” connections for every drawbar frequency in the same manner as the original nine-contact electro-mechanical Hammond® organs. The result is a fingers-to-music connection that perfectly duplicates sitting at a vintage B while saving on weight and cost. Plus, the time-spread between these “note ons” is programmable, as is the order in which you hear the harmonics speak. And since the contacts all receive and transmit MIDI note data, you can capture every harmonic nuance of your performance in your DAW program of choice—to which you can directly connect the XK-5 via USB.
“The first thing that struck me was the action. I played a big Larry Young chord, and stretching and hitting that top note, it didn’t quite trigger all the way until I really pressed on it. That’s exactly what a B-3 does and what I expect as a B-3 player.” – Jim Alfredson (Organissimo, Janiva Magness)
(Jim – jamming on the XK5 – ModelA3)
Completely Redesigned Key-bed: The XK-5’s keyboard action is built in-house, not sourced from a third-party manufacturer. We designed it to duplicate the heft, bounce, and key dip of a “new old stock” and well-maintained B-3TM: No springy synth keys allowed! Master Hammond players who tested early prototypes confirmed that nothing comes closer to the feel and response they expect. Of course it has the “waterfall” key fronts critical to Hammond playing techniques such as palm slides. Play the XK-5 alongside any other modern organ and we’re convinced you’ll find the difference stunning.
“The feel of the keyboard, it kicks back at you.
It’s not dead, and it feels good.
See, that’s what we’re looking for!”- Dr. Lonnie Smith
“It’s like the feel of what I imagine it must have been like in 1968
when you put your hands on a brand new one. It feels great.”- Chuck Leavell
3|Page
All-New Sound Engine: The XK-5 employs new proprietary technology to recreate Hammond’s storied tone wheel generator with unprecedented accuracy and flexibility. Tone wheels were spinning discs on shafts, each with its own pickup pointing at the edge. The pattern of “teeth” cut into the edge of the wheel and its rotational speed determined the pitch. Modeling and sampling are combined in an exclusive process to capture the frequencies of all 91 tone wheels found in the original organs, not to mention other important sonic details such as key click, harmonic percussion, vibrato-chorus, and more.
Tone wheel generators have become like rare violins or classic cars: Even though Hammond originally calibrated all instruments that left the factory to sound identical, no two are exactly alike after decades of use. So we’ve extended the programmability of both the overall generator characteristics (such as leakage and cross-talk between pickups) and individual tone wheel behavior (such as the purity of the sine wave) to almost ludicrous depths. In addition to letting you perfectly duplicate different conditions of Hammonds—from showroom-new to road-abused if that’s what you’re going for—there’s the ability to recreate individual organs right down to the model, year, and serial number! Presets will capture the exact tonal qualities of famous artists’ instruments, from jazz great Dr. Lonnie Smith to Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) to Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey) and more.
Virtual Matching Transformer: An often overlooked subtlety of the Hammond sound was that the tone wheels generated tiny voltages that needed to be stepped up, and you could be “drawing on” some of the same wheels at the same time by playing similar notes with similar drawbar settings on both manuals. All signals from the upper, lower, and pedal manuals passed through a matching transformer that was intended to even things out before the signal moved on to the preamp and vibrato-chorus scanner. The transformer—a piece of iron with a coil wrapped around it—could “remember” some of its saturation based on how hard it had been working previously, thus affecting new notes played. Physicists call this hysteresis. Musically speaking, it affects how much “volume robbing” you hear and adds to what Hammond aficionados think of as the “breathing” quality of the organ. (The phenomenon is similar to why some recording engineers like transformer-equipped microphones and/or preamps for certain sounds.) In the XK-5, the matching transformer and its place in the signal chain is modeled precisely, and the saturation and hysteresis amounts are adjustable from barely-there to over-the-top. Like we said, we’re closing the final few millimeters of the realism gap.
MORE FEATURES
We didn’t stop there. Just a few of the XK-5’s more than 50 innovations and features include:
• Four full sets of Harmonic Drawbars plus pedal drawbars, just like on original Hammond
console organs including the B-3.
• 12 additional virtual tone wheels are devoted to harmonically complex pedal tones (i.e. more
than just 16′ and 8′ sine waves), as found on Hammonds beginning in 1945.
• Custom tone wheel profiles available via download.
• Our best-ever Digital Leslie effect. Anything else is just a “rotary simulator.”
• Continuously variable Digital Leslie speed if desired.

• Dedicated octave shift / transpose buttons.
• Improved DSP-based overdrive complemented by vacuum tube preamp.
• Improved vibrato-chorus.
• Dedicated on/off buttons and amount knobs for reverb, overdrive, and assignable multi-FX.
• Lower B drawbars can alternately control 9 MIDI CC messages for external gear.
• Left and right 1⁄4” outs can be used at the same time as Leslie output, for running the XK-5
through a real Leslie in parallel to stationary speakers, a subwoofer, or house P.A.
• More key-triggering modes for pedal-to-lower coupler (Manual Bass function).
• Firmware updatable via USB flash drive or directly from computer.
• Crisp new OLED display is more readable under different lighting conditions.
Of course we’ve retained the things that made working with the XK-3C and our compact SK-series keyboards a joy. Hold any button and the first page of parameters most relevant to it comes up in the display—holding the Leslie speed button for Digital Leslie settings, for example. This saves you a ton of menu-diving when customizing your sounds. New patch-naming and copying features also make your housekeeping even easier.
HERITAGE SERIES OVERVIEW
The single manual XK-5 forms the basis of our new Heritage Series, letting you configure as large or
as small a system as your gig requires.
For adding flawless and inspiring Hammond organ sound to your existing multi-keyboard rig, simply purchase the XK-5 single-manual unit. It contains all the tone-generating “brains” in case you want to expand later. From here, two systems offer a choice between contemporary or traditional looks for players who require dual manuals and/or pedals.
XK-5 Pro System
This system is best for touring musicians who carry their own gear but require a full portable B-3.
The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system. It features the same high-quality cabinetry as the main unit, with vertically extended side panels designed to cradle your XK-5. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance.
Jazz players who kick bass can add the XPK-250 two-octave radiating pedalboard, which includes our new EXP-250 expression pedal. Though the XK-5 is compatible with previous XK-3 and XK-3C Pro System expansion products such as the XLK-3 lower manual (though you’ll only get the multiple key contacts on the XK-5 itself), all the new components interconnect via H-BUS, our new connector that simplifies setup by carrying both data and power.
Rounding out the options are the open-footprint aluminum Pro stand, which folds for easy carry, and matching bench.

Model A-3TM
So named because it looks very much like Laurens Hammond’s first organ, the Model ATM he introduced in 1935, the Model A-3 is ideal for installation in a church or nightclub, or for any application where the appearance of a classic B-series Hammond is desired.
It begins with the XK5 and adds the A-3 lower manual, which functions exactly like the XLK-5 but has thicker side panels. The wooden “B-3 look” stand and bench match the cabinetry perfectly, as does the XPK-250 pedalboard with expression pedal.
HAMMOND will offer different bundles of these components through better retailers everywhere.
If you demand no less than perfection from your tone-wheel organ sound, a feel and responsiveness that will make you close your eyes and imagine you’re playing a vintage B-3, and programmability that will let you recreate any specific Hammond that may be in your mind’s ear, don’t settle for a “clone.” Insist on The New Original … the HAMMOND XK-5.
“I’m so glad Hammond is carrying on the tradition, and making it even better than it was in the beginning. Congratulations!” – Chuck Leavell

Sennheiser In The News led by system designer Norbert Hilbich AMBEO 3D audio soundscapes guidePORT system wow! Jon Hammond

Installation AV Says: “Sennheiser has announced a new collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London for the forthcoming exhibition You Say You Want a Revolution? Records & Rebels 1966 – 1970.

The exhibition will open to the public on 10 September 2016 and run until 26 February 2017, following which it will tour internationally. Sennheiser will provide immersive sound utilising its AMBEO 3D audio technology delivered through a guidePORT audio guide system.

Curated by Geoffrey Marsh and Victoria Broackes, the curatorial team behind the V&A’s David Bowie is, the new exhibition is designed in six distinct sections. It will explore the late 1960s through hundreds of exhibits from the V&A’s extensive collections alongside a selection of loans that range from design, music, film, fashion and consumer products to photography, posters and books. It is designed by Nissen Richards Studio, with video content designed by Fray studio, and sound design by Carolyn Downing.

Music will play a key role in the exhibition, said Broakes: “The music running through You Say You Want a Revolution will represent the backbone and heart of the exhibition; it will be an object in itself. Therefore, we are delighted to be working with Sennheiser once again. Their expertise in 3D immersive audio will push the limits of the sound experience still further.”

Working closely with the exhibition’s sound designer Carolyn Downing, the Sennheiser team, led by system designer Norbert Hilbich (left of picture), will be setting up two AMBEO 3D audio soundscapes. One will place visitors in an immersive environment evoking the political issues and fight against censorship and the establishment of the late 1960s while the other will recreate a live concert atmosphere with upmixed audio material from the period.

Hilbich told Installation that the new exhibition will contain a lot more music than David Bowie is. “We have quite a big bunch of songs that they think we should transfer to 3D audio, but the process is not finished. There are plenty of ideas – we now have to [think about] how we put it into operation, what will it sound like, which part of the songs we should take and so on.”

After being set up in the studio, Hilbich added, the mix will be adjusted on site to suit the acoustics of the venue – as was also done with the Bowie exhibition.

Visitors will be accompanied through the exhibition by a Sennheiser audio guide system. The guidePORT system will deliver hundreds of personal, automatically triggered stereo feeds simultaneously. It will transmit real-time, lip-sync audio to fully immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the late 1960s. The system at the V&A will comprise 750 receiver units with high-quality headphones, along with several transmission and trigger units that will be hidden from sight.

Robert Genereux (right of picture), business director system design at Sennheiser, said: “The headphone part [using the guidePORT system] will be similar, but along the way they are going to create ‘disturbances’ in the headphone experience in different sections. This will be a little bit of a difference [from] the guidePORT experience for Bowie, which is uniform all the way from the beginning to the ‘show moment’.”

Daniel Sennheiser, CEO of Sennheiser – pictured (centre) holding a replica of a 1968 set of Sennheiser headphones – commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to cooperate with the Victoria and Albert Museum on yet another fantastic project. The V&A is uniquely positioned to curate an exhibition about this transformational time in our more recent history. The artistic quality of the exhibition together with spectacular exhibits and an innovative state-of-the-art sound experience, featuring Sennheiser’s AMBEO 3D audio technology, will make this exhibition a truly immersive experience.”

PSN Europe Says: “Sennheiser to play major role at Sgt Pepper exhibition”

LINK http://www.psneurope.com/sennheiser-to-play-major-role-at-sgt-pepper-exhibition/

“Shards from Jimi Hendrix’s and Pete Townshend’s shattered guitars… The brown fringe jacket Roger Daltrey wore at Woodstock…. Handwritten lyrics for Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles… The suits worn by John Lennon and George Harrison on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…

All of these incredible artefacts are to be included in a major cultural retrospective to be held at the Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum in September 2016. Called You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966–70, the exhibition will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s upon life today.

It follows the success of 2013’s David Bowie Is – the most popular exhibition ever held at the V&A – and once again, Sennheiser technology, including the guidePORT system and the emerging AMBEO 3D environment, will play a major part in the presentation and production of the show.

You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966–70 will “investigate the upheaval, the explosive sense of freedom, and the legal changes that took place resulting in a fundamental shift in the mindset of the Western world”, say the curators, Victoria Broakes and Geoffrey Marsh. More than 350 objects from the period, encompassing photography, posters, literature, music, design, film, fashion, and performance, have been procured for the show: even a moon rock, and an Apple 1 computer (of which there are only four working models in the world).

Details of Record and Rebels 1966-70 – which will run from September 2016 to February 2017 – were revealed at former legendary ’60s bar (now a private club) the Bag O’ Nails, just off London’s Carnaby Street, at the end of February. Martin Roth, director of the V&A, said it was one of the most important exhibitions the museum had curated. Broakes and Marsh agreed that the Sgt Pepper suits were some of the most difficult objects to secure – but they were items considered essential to the show.

Levi’s and Sennheiser are key sponsors of the event, along with outfitter Fenwick and stylist Sassoon.

“I knew some of the concept, but not all of it until today, so and I think it’s going to be a really, really exciting exhibition!” Sennheiser co-CEO Daniel Sennheiser told PSNEurope at the launch. He noted that one of the show themes – how the 1960s have shaped how we think today – is very much in tune with his company philosophy.

In an introductory speech at the Bag O’Nails, Daniel spoke of how his grandfather’s business had mass-produced the HD414 headphones starting in 1968, and how it had gone on to be the “most sold headphone in the world”. Later, while clutching a pair based on the original ’60s design, Daniel told PSNEurope that the phones were never planned as a product but came about when some of the Sennheiser engineers were “playing around with microphone capsules” and noticed the transparency of the sound when they were placed close to the ear.

“My grandfather [Fritz Sennheiser] said, OK, let’s make a product out of it. He asked the distributor at the time how many they could sell. But no one could imagine having a hi-fi sound ‘in your head’. The distributor said, maybe 500 worldwide! But grandfather said, to make it work financially, I need to make 5,000.

“So he made 5,000 – and it was sold out in three months. And today, more than 12m pieces have been produced. And we can still sell you replacement earpads for a 1968 pair!” revealed Daniel.

Working with the exhibition’s sound designer Carolyn Downing, the Sennheiser team (led by system designer Norbert Hilbich) will be setting up two AMBEO 3D audio soundscapes at the museum. One will place visitors in an immersive environment evoking the political issues and fight against censorship and the establishment of the late 1960s; the other will recreate a live concert atmosphere with upmixed audio material from the period.

Of AMBEO 3D – demonstrated in London last year but launched official at CES earlier in 2016 – Daniel says: “The idea is to transport you into a different place.

“We’re still learning how to use it and what we [can] do with it. It’s not just one technology, it’s about the capturing, the mixing, the creation of the spacial audio, then the processing and the playback. [But] that’s where Sennheiser is uniquely positioned [at the V&A]: to provide the 3D audio and create an emotional experience in an exhibition which is already emotive in its content, so it’s a really good case study and demonstration for us.”

Visitors will be accompanied through the exhibition by Sennheiser’s guidePORT system, as they were for David Bowie Is…. GuidePORT can deliver hundreds of personal, automatically triggered stereo feeds simultaneously, and will transmit real-time, lip-sync audio to fully immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the period. The V&A implementation will comprise 750 receiver units with premium headphones (though Daniel didn’t know which models at the time), along with several transmission and trigger units, hidden from the public eye.

David Bowie Is has been on tour ever since the March 2013 V&A launch: it’s visited Toronto, Sao Paolo, Chicago, Melbourne, the Netherlands and is about to open in Tokyo. Daniel remarks, “If [Records and Rebels] is successful, I would love it to go on tour – but that is the V&A’s decision.”

Is Daniel a big fan of music from the era? “I would have loved to have been alive at that time. I’m a big fan of Zappa, Hendrix, Bob Dylan. I play guitar and piano – but I have more passion than talent!”

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.'”

The HAMMOND B-3TM organ and its siblings such as the C-3TM and A-100TM have been the single most influential keyboard instruments in musical history, perhaps apart from the acoustic piano. When paired with the spinning Leslie® speaker, the HAMMOND’s sonic versatility defined the electrified keyboard sound of genres from rock to soul to Gospel to jazz. This sound is as sought after today as ever.
With the XK-5 and Heritage Series, HAMMOND is proud to announce that we’ve closed the final millimeters of the realism gap—in terms of both sound and feel—in a form factor that’s far more portable and affordable than a vintage Hammond organ. We are very proud of this instrument for providing an absolutely authentic playing experience that will meet the demands of even the most seasoned B-3 purist. Frankly, we feel it has no peer among today’s keyboard offerings.
“It’s very important to feel comfortable sitting at the organ. Sometimes I play an organ and it doesn’t feel like what I’m used to. First of all, [The XK-5] feels like
a B-3, just sitting at it.” – Dr. Lonnie Smith, legendary jazz organist
“It’s a Hammond B3! That’s what most of us want in
essence. But to be able to go beyond that and have all these incredible adjustments … I’m in love!” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)
Let’s face it: Moving and maintaining an antique Hammond will only become more difficult as time passes. Of course we have tons of respect for anyone who does, but to get all of the sound with none of the hassle, let’s learn why the XK-5 is destined to become The New OriginalTM
.
NEW PATENT-PENDING TECHNOLOGIES
The engineering team we’ve dedicated to the Hammond sound for over 30 years went back to the drawing board for nearly everything about the new XK-5, analyzing many classic organs and poring over original diagrams and blueprints that only we possess. Here are some of the biggest new ideas in the new Hammond XK-5.
2|Page
Hybrid Multiple Key Contact System: On classic Hammonds (and in our current, full-sized New B-3 Mk. II family), pressing a key closes nine mechanical contacts: one for each drawbar. Your ears usually hear the multiple harmonics as one note. Depress a key slowly, however, and you can hear the harmonics come in at slightly different times. Normal playing created a subtle “slop” between otherwise crisp attacks, and the more drawbars you pull out, the more of an almost subliminal but chewy and soulful character it impacts to the sound. One perhaps feels this more than hears it, but seasoned players certainly notice its absence.
You can’t accomplish this with a single MIDI note-on, which is what most of today’s organ and synth key actions use. In the XK-5, we use three mechanical contacts at different points in the keys’ travel. Each of these in turn triggers three virtual contacts, giving you separate “note on” connections for every drawbar frequency in the same manner as the original nine-contact electro-mechanical Hammond® organs. The result is a fingers-to-music connection that perfectly duplicates sitting at a vintage B while saving on weight and cost. Plus, the time-spread between these “note ons” is programmable, as is the order in which you hear the harmonics speak. And since the contacts all receive and transmit MIDI note data, you can capture every harmonic nuance of your performance in your DAW program of choice—to which you can directly connect the XK-5 via USB.
“The first thing that struck me was the action. I played a big Larry Young chord, and stretching and hitting that top note, it didn’t quite trigger all the way until I really pressed on it. That’s exactly what a B-3 does and what I expect as a B-3 player.” – Jim Alfredson (Organissimo, Janiva Magness)
(Jim – jamming on the XK5 – ModelA3)
Completely Redesigned Key-bed: The XK-5’s keyboard action is built in-house, not sourced from a third-party manufacturer. We designed it to duplicate the heft, bounce, and key dip of a “new old stock” and well-maintained B-3TM: No springy synth keys allowed! Master Hammond players who tested early prototypes confirmed that nothing comes closer to the feel and response they expect. Of course it has the “waterfall” key fronts critical to Hammond playing techniques such as palm slides. Play the XK-5 alongside any other modern organ and we’re convinced you’ll find the difference stunning.
“The feel of the keyboard, it kicks back at you.
It’s not dead, and it feels good.
See, that’s what we’re looking for!”- Dr. Lonnie Smith
“It’s like the feel of what I imagine it must have been like in 1968
when you put your hands on a brand new one. It feels great.”- Chuck Leavell

All-New Sound Engine: The XK-5 employs new proprietary technology to recreate Hammond’s storied tone wheel generator with unprecedented accuracy and flexibility. Tone wheels were spinning discs on shafts, each with its own pickup pointing at the edge. The pattern of “teeth” cut into the edge of the wheel and its rotational speed determined the pitch. Modeling and sampling are combined in an exclusive process to capture the frequencies of all 91 tone wheels found in the original organs, not to mention other important sonic details such as key click, harmonic percussion, vibrato-chorus, and more.
Tone wheel generators have become like rare violins or classic cars: Even though Hammond originally calibrated all instruments that left the factory to sound identical, no two are exactly alike after decades of use. So we’ve extended the programmability of both the overall generator characteristics (such as leakage and cross-talk between pickups) and individual tone wheel behavior (such as the purity of the sine wave) to almost ludicrous depths. In addition to letting you perfectly duplicate different conditions of Hammonds—from showroom-new to road-abused if that’s what you’re going for—there’s the ability to recreate individual organs right down to the model, year, and serial number! Presets will capture the exact tonal qualities of famous artists’ instruments, from jazz great Dr. Lonnie Smith to Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) to Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey) and more.
Virtual Matching Transformer: An often overlooked subtlety of the Hammond sound was that the tone wheels generated tiny voltages that needed to be stepped up, and you could be “drawing on” some of the same wheels at the same time by playing similar notes with similar drawbar settings on both manuals. All signals from the upper, lower, and pedal manuals passed through a matching transformer that was intended to even things out before the signal moved on to the preamp and vibrato-chorus scanner. The transformer—a piece of iron with a coil wrapped around it—could “remember” some of its saturation based on how hard it had been working previously, thus affecting new notes played. Physicists call this hysteresis. Musically speaking, it affects how much “volume robbing” you hear and adds to what Hammond aficionados think of as the “breathing” quality of the organ. (The phenomenon is similar to why some recording engineers like transformer-equipped microphones and/or preamps for certain sounds.) In the XK-5, the matching transformer and its place in the signal chain is modeled precisely, and the saturation and hysteresis amounts are adjustable from barely-there to over-the-top. Like we said, we’re closing the final few millimeters of the realism gap.
MORE FEATURES
We didn’t stop there. Just a few of the XK-5’s more than 50 innovations and features include:
• Four full sets of Harmonic Drawbars plus pedal drawbars, just like on original Hammond
console organs including the B-3.
• 12 additional virtual tone wheels are devoted to harmonically complex pedal tones (i.e. more
than just 16′ and 8′ sine waves), as found on Hammonds beginning in 1945.
• Custom tone wheel profiles available via download.
• Our best-ever Digital Leslie effect. Anything else is just a “rotary simulator.”
• Continuously variable Digital Leslie speed if desired.
4|Page
• Dedicated octave shift / transpose buttons.
• Improved DSP-based overdrive complemented by vacuum tube preamp.
• Improved vibrato-chorus.
• Dedicated on/off buttons and amount knobs for reverb, overdrive, and assignable multi-FX.
• Lower B drawbars can alternately control 9 MIDI CC messages for external gear.
• Left and right 1⁄4” outs can be used at the same time as Leslie output, for running the XK-5
through a real Leslie in parallel to stationary speakers, a subwoofer, or house P.A.
• More key-triggering modes for pedal-to-lower coupler (Manual Bass function).
• Firmware updatable via USB flash drive or directly from computer.
• Crisp new OLED display is more readable under different lighting conditions.
Of course we’ve retained the things that made working with the XK-3C and our compact SK-series keyboards a joy. Hold any button and the first page of parameters most relevant to it comes up in the display—holding the Leslie speed button for Digital Leslie settings, for example. This saves you a ton of menu-diving when customizing your sounds. New patch-naming and copying features also make your housekeeping even easier.
HERITAGE SERIES OVERVIEW
The single manual XK-5 forms the basis of our new Heritage Series, letting you configure as large or
as small a system as your gig requires.
For adding flawless and inspiring Hammond organ sound to your existing multi-keyboard rig, simply purchase the XK-5 single-manual unit. It contains all the tone-generating “brains” in case you want to expand later. From here, two systems offer a choice between contemporary or traditional looks for players who require dual manuals and/or pedals.
XK-5 Pro System
This system is best for touring musicians who carry their own gear but require a full portable B-3.
The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system. It features the same high-quality cabinetry as the main unit, with vertically extended side panels designed to cradle your XK-5. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance.
Jazz players who kick bass can add the XPK-250 two-octave radiating pedalboard, which includes our new EXP-250 expression pedal. Though the XK-5 is compatible with previous XK-3 and XK-3C Pro System expansion products such as the XLK-3 lower manual (though you’ll only get the multiple key contacts on the XK-5 itself), all the new components interconnect via H-BUS, our new connector that simplifies setup by carrying both data and power.
Rounding out the options are the open-footprint aluminum Pro stand, which folds for easy carry, and matching bench.

Model A-3TM
So named because it looks very much like Laurens Hammond’s first organ, the Model ATM he introduced in 1935, the Model A-3 is ideal for installation in a church or nightclub, or for any application where the appearance of a classic B-series Hammond is desired.
It begins with the XK5 and adds the A-3 lower manual, which functions exactly like the XLK-5 but has thicker side panels. The wooden “B-3 look” stand and bench match the cabinetry perfectly, as does the XPK-250 pedalboard with expression pedal.
HAMMOND will offer different bundles of these components through better retailers everywhere.
If you demand no less than perfection from your tone-wheel organ sound, a feel and responsiveness that will make you close your eyes and imagine you’re playing a vintage B-3, and programmability that will let you recreate any specific Hammond that may be in your mind’s ear, don’t settle for a “clone.” Insist on The New Original … the HAMMOND XK-5.
“I’m so glad Hammond is carrying on the tradition, and making it even better than it was in the beginning. Congratulations!” – Chuck Leavell

Surprise scholarship aids Hayward pilot’s flight instruction dreams

Clay Burch (standing behind Sullenberger) who arranged for the Oakland Firefighters Random Acts charity to fund Carr’s flight education. (Kristopher Skinner/Bay Area News Group) ”
By George Kelly | gkelly@bayareanewsgroup.com
PUBLISHED: November 7, 2016 at 5:13 pm
“OAKLAND — “Whoa, whoa, oh my God!”

Quincey Carr cried out as he wheeled around full circle in his wheelchair as media and well-wishers quickly surrounded him at the corner of Hegenberger Road and Edgewater Drive near his job.

Only minutes before, an Oakland fire engine had pulled up to treat Carr in an attempt to distract him.
“They surprised me, they had the fire truck show up here and test my pulse and said ‘Are you OK?’” he said. “Then people just started swarming in, and I was like, ‘What is happening?’”

Carr, 32, of Hayward, was immediately surrounded by cameras and city leaders, including Mayor Libby Schaaf, and Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who presented him with a $10,000 scholarship check on behalf of Oakland Firefighters Random Acts to cover the cost of flight instruction classes.

“I’m just so happy that I can really devote all of the time in doing what I really want to do,” said Carr, who wields a bullhorn and signs six days a week to promote Ramos Furniture, a family-owned and operated chain of Northern California stores.

He came by his love of flight early with visits to his parents’ jobs at the Alameda Naval Air Station leading to model-plane collections, flight lessons and his own private pilot’s license at age 17 in 2002.

But tragedy struck on Aug. 11, 2006, when Carr, who learned he had passed his written exam for a commercial license, went out with his girlfriend to begin celebrations with a haircut at his regular barbershop on International Boulevard. When his girlfriend rebuffed a stranger’s flirting, the man left the shop but returned soon after with a gun and shot Carr three times, then fired two more shots into him on the floor.

Carr’s dreams were on hold. But he fought back through agonizing rehabilitation to teach ground instruction at a local flight school, take friends on occasional plane rides and play a weekly piano gig at a Union City hotel to make ends meet.
Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch said he met Carr earlier this year while visiting Ramos Furniture during a work break. It was after that chance meeting that Burch started thinking about how he could help Carr.

“We’re here to hopefully start him on a path to change his life. His dream has always been to be a flight instructor. Today, we’re here to help him realize his dream,” Burch said.

Larry Hendricks, a retired 30-year Oakland firefighter, said the mayor’s office contacted his nonprofit organization, Oakland Firefighters Random Acts, to help with Burch’s plan.

“When we heard (Burch) had taken the time to get the backstory of a guy hundreds of people had driven by in his wheelchair, it was a no-brainer for us,” Hendricks said.

At fire station No. 27 on Pardee Road, officials started talking about a scholarship that would allow Carr to train at Pacific States Aviation, a flight-based operator in Concord.

“I’ve known Quincey for more than 15 years,” Rashid Yahya, Pacific States vice president and chief pilot, said. “He still flies out of our academy using a special apparatus. I’m really glad we can help Quincey with his passion for flying and teaching. Once he gets his certificate, he can teach any student from private to commercial how to fly.”

Sullenberger praised Random Acts and all others who helped raise funds for Carr’s equipment and training.

“When I became a flight instructor when I was 20 years old, I very quickly realized it’s one thing to be able to accomplish something, to achieve a certain level of performance, but it’s quite another to, in very granular fashion, break that down into component parts and explain it to someone so they can begin to do it,” said Sullenberger, who lavished praise on Carr’s determination and perseverance in pursuing his flight instruction dreams.

“I’m going to tell him today that forever after when I see a small plane overhead, I’m going to say ‘I wonder if that’s Quincey?’”

“Quicksilver Quicksilver Messenger Service – Band​ manager Ron Polte dies in Mill Valley at 84″
” By Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

Posted: 09/16/16, 5:53 PM PDT | Updated: 6 hrs ago

Ron Polte, who managed the psychedelic rock band Quicksilver Messenger Service and the all-female quintet the Ace of Cups during the glory days of the San Francisco Sound, died Wednesday at his longtime home in Mill Valley. He was 84.

Mr. Polte had been suffering from multiple health problems and had been under Hospice care since May, said his wife of 20 years, Sally Robert.

“He was a good man,” said Quicksilver band member David Freiberg, speaking by phone from Florida while on tour with the Jefferson Starship. “I could always trust him to do what he thought was right.”

Born on the south side of Chicago into a family of nine children, Mr. Polte had a tough childhood, but managed to turn his life around after being in and out of trouble with the law as a teenager, his wife said.

In Chicago, he became friends with blues singer-songwriter Nick Gravenites (“Born in Chicago,” “Buried Alive in the Blues”) when they were teenagers and followed him out to San Francisco in the early 1960s. They were the first of the Chicago blues crowd, including Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, to relocate in the Bay Area, most of them settling in Marin and Sonoma counties.

In 1967, Mr. Polte took over management of Quicksilver and the Ace of Cups after their original manager, Ambrose Hollingworth, was seriously injured in a car crash near Muir Beach.

“When we needed somebody, there he was,” Freiberg said.

Quicksilver was the last of the San Francisco hippie bands to ink a major label deal when they signed with Capitol Records in late 1967.

“He took it slow and steady and wouldn’t take a deal if he didn’t think it was right,” Freiberg recalled. “It took a while, but we got a really good deal with Capitol.”

Mr. Polte was known as a dutiful and resourceful manager who did what he could to meet the needs of the young musicians in his bands. Freiberg remembered that when he and his Quicksilver bandmates were living together in a house in Mill Valley, they informed him of their desire to move onto a farm in the country with a barn where they could rehearse. Mr. Polte wasted no time making that wish come true.

“Within a week and a half, we were living on an old dairy farm in Olema,” Freiberg recalled, chuckling. “He really cared about making sure everybody was taken care of.”
Diane Vitalich of Novato, drummer for the Ace of Cups, recalled that when she and her bandmates needed transportation, Mr. Polte went to an auction of state vehicles at San Quentin and bought cars for all of them.

“He bought us five 1963 Dodge Darts,” she said. “They were all blue and all looked the same.”

During this time, Mr. Polte started Westpole, a booking agency that handled Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, the Sons of Champlin and other seminal Bay Area rock groups.

He’s also credited with inspiring the name of the band Electric Flag, a short-lived supergroup formed by Bloomfield, Gravenites, keyboardist Barry Goldberg, bassist Harvey Brooks and drummer Buddy Miles. According to Gravenites, Quicksilver had somehow come into possession of a light-up electric flag after a gig at a veterans hall.

“He brought it over to where we were all living and rehearsing in Tam Valley,” he recalled. “We plugged it in and it lit up and started waving. We said, ‘Hey, look at that. Let’s call ourselves the Electric Flag.’”

Eventually, Mr. Polte escaped from the hard living and tumult of the music business, spending time on a remote lodge in the New Mexico wilderness owned by Frank Werber, the charismatic manager of the Kingston Trio and owner of the Trident, a legendary Sausalito restaurant.

Through it all, he never lost the values that defined the ‘60s generation in San Francisco.

“All the altruistic thinking that came out of that era he agreed with a thousand percent,” Gravenites said. “He remained a firm defender of all the idealism from those years.”

In addition to his wife, Mr. Polte is survived by two daughters, Pamela Polte of Sutter Creek, Amador County, and Patti Ann Lindecker of Chicago; two sons, Thomas Polte of Chicago and Jeremy Polte of Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, and two sisters, Marilyn McMinn and Nancy Brunanchon of Pine Grove, Amador County.”

Theory of relativity
My long lost bro’ Albert.. Albert Einstein​!
Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein
Albert Einstein (/ˈælbərt ˈaɪnstaɪn/; German: [ˈalbɐrt ˈaɪnʃtaɪn] ( listen); 14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist and philosopher of science.[3] He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics).
The theory of relativity usually encompasses two theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity.[1] Concepts introduced by the theories of relativity include spacetime as a unified entity of space and time, relativity of simultaneity, kinematic and gravitational time dilation, and length contraction.

Nick Gravenites
Nick Gravenites – Nick’s bio “Biography
According to author and pop music critic Joel Selvin, Gravenites is “the original San Francisco connection for the Chicago crowd.” Gravenites is credited as a “musical handyman” helping such San Francisco bands as Quicksilver Messenger Service and Janis Joplin’s first solo group, the Kosmic Blues Band.

Gravenites also worked extensively with John Cipollina after producing the first Quicksilver Messenger Service album. He and Cipollina formed the Nick Gravenites–John Cipollina Band which toured a lot in Europe.

Gravenites was also a songwriter for the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which consisted of Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, and Michael Bloomfield, then formed The Electric Flag with Butterfield guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Gravenites is also responsible for writing the score for The Trip, produced the music for the movie Steelyard Blues.

He produced the pop hit “One Toke Over the Line” for Brewer & Shipley and the album Right Place, Wrong Time for Otis Rush, for which he was nominated for a Grammy Award. Together with John Kahn, Gravenites produced the album ‘Not mellowed with Age’ by Southern Comfort. Over the years, Gravenites would often use pianist Pete Sears in his band “Animal Mind”, including on his 1980 Blue Star album on which Sears played keyboards and bass. They also played together in front of 100,000 people on Earth Day 1990 at Crissy Field, San Francisco. Sears also joined him for a tour of Greece.

He still performs live in northern California. Gravenites was inducted to the Blues Hall of Fame in 2003 for his song “Born In Chicago”. He recently toured with the Chicago Blues Reunion and a new Electric Flag Band.”
**Excerpted from Huffington Post about Julius Karpen: ” Barry Melton, lead guitarist for Country Joe & the Fish, was quoted: “Chet was the antithesis of Bill Graham. Chet didn’t really care about money. The music always came first.”

Julius Karpen, who later managed Big Brother, was present when Hart phoned Melton. To Karpen, it sounded like “bitching between friends.” He asked Melton, “Did Mickey call you to complain about that quote?” Melton replied, “Oh, that’s Mickey. If you’re friends with Mickey, you’re always sparring with Mickey.”

The most poetic eulogy for Chet was written by Allen Cohen, who had been the editor of the first psychedelic underground paper, the San Francisco Oracle: “…There were darkened skied and a storm about to strike. The women cried and danced in the streets while the good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye down by the dock of the Bay. The day Chet Helms died Golden Gate Park was filled with mourners all with flowers in their hair. Big Brother played on all seven hills while Janis smiled from the clouds singing you got a piece of my heart….”

Only, Cohen himself was already dead. He had written that eulogy in January 2000, when there was a false report in the Chronicle that Chet had died. Chet decided to have a combination wake and resurrection. He hired a hearse and a coffin and invited 200 guests. He was driven up to the Gold Coast Restaurant. The coffin was rolled into the restaurant and opened. Chet lay there with flowers and a cell phone on his chest. All of a sudden, the phone rang. Chet rose to answer it, then walked through the crowd, toasting the mourners and greeting the cameras.”

Jon Hammond in Chicago IL interviewing Barry Dolins is Deputy Director of the Mayorâs Office of Special Events and the coordinator of the Chicago Blues Festival since 1985 on HammondCast show for KYOU & KYCY Radio 1550AM (San Francisco CA) Headliners & Program for 2007 Chicago Blues Festival: Thursday 6/7

Front Porch

11:30 AM Blues in the Schools
Carrying on a Blues Fest tradition, boogie-woogie pianist Erwin Helfer, vocalist Katherine Davis, and guitarist-pianist Eric Noden lead a group of students from Stone Academy in a performance that will no doubt also feature enthusiastic cameos from an assortment of guest stars. –DW

1:30 PM Aaron Moore
If this pianist hadn’t opted for a dependable day gig with Chicago’s Bureau of Streets and San in the 50s, relegating the blues to his spare time, he might now be as revered as Otis Spann or Johnny Jones. In the decade since his retirement he’s made an enthusiastic return to music, his hearty vocal style and rollicking technique — much influenced by Roosevelt Sykes — still intact. –BD

3 PM Bobby “Slim” James with Joanne Graham
Bobby “Slim” James, a club stalwart on the south and west sides, puts across his percussive guitar playing and choked, dramatic baritone vocals with a dose of flamboyant showmanship. He’ll perform with singer Joanne Graham, whose winning combination of sass and class lets her sound lusty or tough without getting too coarse. –DW

5 PM Phil Guy & the Chicago Machine
Notwithstanding his status as “the other Guy,” at this point Phil Guy is far more of a meat-and-potatoes bluesman than Buddy, and he’s certainly paid his dues — behind his brother, with Junior Wells, even on his own. You can hear both his south Louisiana upbringing and his south-side Chicago panache in his guitar work: he tosses in a little low-down funk now and again, but his lead lines stay blissfully focused. –BD

Crossroads

Noon Charles E. Shaw & the Chicago Blues Rebellion Band featuring Lady Sax and Lady Kat
Guitarist Charles E. Shaw can play everything from raw Chicago boogie blues to breezily romantic soul to post-John McLaughlin celestial fusion. His band will be joined by Lady Sax, an alto saxophonist from Gary who plays a solid blend of smooth pop-jazz and boogity funk, and rough-edged south-side vocalist Lady Kat, who does a knockout version of the witty, little-known Gloria Thompson Rodgers number “VooDoo Woman.” –DW

2 PM Osee Anderson & Da Blooze Folks
Formerly Lonnie Brooks’s second guitarist, Osee Anderson is equally at home with Delta minimalism and Wes Montgomery-style sophistication. He tends to rely a bit too heavily on pyrotechnics, but when he reins in that bad habit you can hear how committed he is — both to blues tradition and to his own eclectic set of influences. –DW

4 PM Hoochie Coochie Boys
Muddy Waters always hired stellar sidemen, and this set reunites five of them: harpist George “Mojo” Buford, guitarists John Primer and Rick Kreher, bassist Calvin “Fuzz” Jones, and drummer Ray “Killer” Allison. Local pianist Barrelhouse Chuck will do his best to fill the shoes of the late Otis Spann, and vocalist Muddy Waters Jr., who recently surfaced with plans to follow in his dad’s footsteps, will front the band. –BD

Louisiana Bayou Station & Social Club

12:30 PM Willis Prudhomme & Zydeco Express
Despite their similarities, Cajun and Creole musical traditions are distinct, and many fans and practitioners are adamant about keeping them that way. Not so accordionist Willis Prudhomme: mentored by Cajun legend Nathan Abshire, he combines bluesy, hectic zydeco with more sedate but no less complex Cajun material. –DW

2 PM Bob Hall
At least since the trad-jazz revival in the 40s and 50s, there have been plenty of die-hard aficionados of early American jazz and blues in Britain. London pianist Bob Hall plays as though he’s memorized stacks of classic blues, barrelhouse, and boogie records note for note, but his enthusiasm — and his freshly minted variations on vintage themes — help his music sound immediate instead of dated. –DW

3:30 PM Renaud Patigny
This Belgian pianist specializes in transcribing early 78s, and for this set he’ll deliver note-for-note re-creations of sides by the great Albert Ammons — despite the poor quality of the source recordings, he says his versions are 98 percent accurate. Those who already distrust the repertory movement among jazz preservationists won’t be thrilled with Patigny’s premise, but his dedication, expertise, and virtuosity make the results worth checking out. –DW

5 PM Carl “Sonny” Leyland and Lila Ammons
English pianist Carl “Sonny” Leyland, who specializes in what his Web site calls “obscure and primitive” styles, peppers his re-creations of vintage blues, jazz, and boogie-woogie with irreverent flashes of rockabilly and R & B and occasionally tosses in a wittily conceived original tune. He’s joined here by Lila Ammons, granddaughter of Albert, who sings with classical precision and bluesy gusto. –DW

Mississippi Juke Joint

12:30 PM Super Percy
This coarse-voiced belter and his Soul Clique Band are regulars in south- and west-side clubs and have recently been playing weekend gigs at Lee’s Unleaded Blues. Their energetic sets are mostly the usual Saturday-night fare, but they liven up their selection of blues, soul, and R & B standards with occasional tunes from Percy’s self-released 2005 CD Is It Real. –DW

2:30 PM John Primer
With his long service in bands led by Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and Magic Slim, John Primer is about as well–seasoned as a Chicago blues guitarist can possibly be. A native of Camden, Mississippi, he’s been playing electric blues with his own band for a while, his exuberant vocals and uncommonly fluid leads sticking close to the Chicago tradition. –BD

4 PM Jimmy “Duck” Holmes
Guitarist Jimmy “Duck” Holmes was mentored by Jack Owens, torchbearer for the so-called Bentonia school of acoustic blues, which is most closely associated with Skip James. Whether such a school existed at the time or was invented retrospectively is open to debate, but Holmes has mastered the primary components of the style: ghostly, high-pitched vocals and languorously picked chords and leads, mostly in an open E or E-minor tuning. –DW

6 PM Chicago Jam Station with Dave Specter, Aron Burton, and Kenny Smith
This evening the festival’s pro jam session is anchored by Dave Specter, a concise, T-Bone Walker-influenced guitarist who blends Kenny Burrell-style jazz with tough Chicago blues; veteran bassist Aron Burton, a former Albert Collins sideman; and drummer Kenny Smith, whose precise timekeeping owes something to the influence of his dad, longtime Muddy Waters trapsman Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. –BD

Route 66 Roadhouse

Noon Boogie Woogie Stomp: Honoring the Ammons Family
Three pianists who performed on the Louisiana Bayou Station & Social Club stage earlier today — Bob Hall, Renaud Patigny, and Carl “Sonny” Leyland — discuss boogie-woogie music and its legacy. They’re joined by vocalist Lila Ammons and her father, Edsel, one of Albert’s sons and a retired bishop of the United Methodist Church. –DW

2 PM Soul-Blues: The Lifeblood of the Blues Today moderated by Larry Hoffman
R The style known as soul-blues or southern soul — which has its roots in R & B, 60s deep soul, and the smooth, swinging 12-bar blues pioneered by the likes of T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, and Bobby “Blue” Bland, and these days draws increasingly on rap and hip-hop — not only continues to thrive in the south but has made plenty of converts outside it (a showcase at Arie Crown earlier this year sold out). This discussion features songwriter Bob Jones; singer Willie Clayton; Rip Daniels, owner of powerhouse Mississippi soul-blues station WJZD; and Julius Lewis, the Memphis promoter who put on the Arie Crown concert. –DW

4 PM Centennials Memorial
Jim O’Neal of Living Blues magazine, Michael Frank of Earwig Music, and writer-producers Bob Porter and Larry Hoffman reminisce about the festival’s centennial honorees, Albert Ammons and Sunnyland Slim, and a number of blues greats who’ve died since last year’s fest, including guitarists Homesick James, Henry Townsend, and Robert Lockwood Jr., singer Ruth Brown, harpist Snooky Pryor, and drummer Chico Chism. Sadly, they’ll now be able to add harpist Carey Bell, who passed away May 6. –DW

Petrillo Music Shell

6 PM Willie Clayton
R One of the leading lights of the contemporary soul-blues scene, Willie Clayton shows off his versatility on last year’s Gifted (Malaco), offering up buoyant pop tunes (“My Lover My Friend”) as well as his usual boudoir ballads (“When I Think About Cheating”) and synth-driven dance-floor workouts (“Sweet Lady,” “My Miss America”). His voice alternates between mellifluous crooning and hoarse, churchy imprecations, and though he’s sometimes so cocky onstage he comes off almost arrogant, he’s still a thrilling and charismatic showman. –DW

7:20 PM Jimmy Dawkins
R In 1969 Jimmy Dawkins’s Fast Fingers (Delmark) won the Grand Prix du Disque of the Hot Club de France, boosting his reputation but in the process saddling him with an inappropriate nickname. He tends to avoid flamboyant high-speed pyrotechnics, instead creating extended, slowly unfurling lines that burn savagely into your brain, and his preference for midrange tones over brilliant upper-register stuff reinforces the dark intensity of his music. His most recent release, 2004’s Tell Me Baby (Fedora), is a bit less harrowing than 1994’s Blues & Pain, but songs like “Falling Tears” and “Hard Life Blues” are still anything but easy listening. –DW

8:30 PM Koko Taylor & the Blues Machine
R She’s been hailed as Chicago’s Queen of the Blues for so long that it’s all but impossible to pinpoint the precise date of her coronation. Taylor’s seminal version of “Wang Dang Doodle,” cut while she was a protege of Willie Dixon at Chess Records, became a national hit in 1966, when Chicago blues records seldom managed that feat; the song remains her calling card today. She survived a life-threatening illness in late 2003, and on her comeback album, this year’s Old School (on Alligator, her label for more than 30 years), her voice is a bit growly with age but her bone-deep commitment to blues tradition is as strong as ever. –BD

Friday 6/8

Front Porch

11:30 AM Blues in the Schools
Harpist Billy Branch, a founder of the Blues in the Schools program, leads a group of Mississippi children who came to Chicago for a class with him, organized by the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. –DW

1 PM J.W. Williams & the Chi-Town Hustlers
When bassist and vocalist J.W. Williams formed the Chi-Town Hustlers in the 80s, he was still a member of Billy Branch’s Sons of Blues, and his band was sort of a subsidiary of the older group — they often played together and shared personnel. Williams spent some time away from the scene, but in recent years he’s been gigging in town with a reconstituted crew of Hustlers, playing the same brand of flamboyant, funky, irreverent blues. –DW

2:45 PM Vernon and Joe Harrington
Southpaw guitar slinger Vernon Harrington and his bassist brother, Joe, are members of the Bell-Harrington clan, which also includes Joe’s regular employer Eddy “the Chief” Clearwater and the late harp maestro Carey Bell. Vernon has a slinky, insinuating guitar style and a deft harmonic imagination, but he relies a little too heavily on overcooked standards. –DW

4 PM Lurrie Bell, Steve Bell, Billy Branch, and Matthew Skoller
R Guitarist Lurrie Bell was originally scheduled to play with his father, harmonica legend Carey Bell, who died on May 6. Three local harp men will be taking his place: Lurrie’s brother Steve, who was taught by Carey and has been playing with Lurrie on and off since they were boys; Billy Branch, Lurrie’s bandleader in the Sons of Blues in the early 80s; and dependable local Matthew Skoller, with whom Lurrie has worked regularly in recent years. Each of these harpists can establish a powerful synergetic empathy with Lurrie even under ordinary circumstances, so this set ought to be devastatingly intense. –DW

5:45 PM The No Static Blues Band featuring Mary, Lynn, and Renee Lane
Vocalist Mary Lane has been gracing west-side bandstands since the 50s, when she worked with the likes of Elmore James, Magic Sam, and Morris Pejoe (then her husband). She’s joined here by daughters Lynn and Renee, whose sweet singing and contemporary styles ought to leaven their mother’s stentorian, occasionally labored vocals and decidedly retro leanings. –DW

Crossroads

Noon Carl Weathersby
A former member of the Sons of Blues, this remarkably versatile guitarist can segue from screaming blues intensity to deep-soul seduction without missing a beat. The imaginative transitions he crafts between the different ideas and conceits he visits during a song make his music engaging and exciting rather than merely disorienting. –DW

2 PM Mighty Joe Young Jr. featuring Chontella Renee
The late guitarist Mighty Joe Young was an important figure in the development of modern Chicago blues, and Joe Jr.’s guitar style, both intense and subtle, is almost eerily reminiscent of his father’s. His daughter Chontella contributes fiery vocals that simultaneously evoke the church, the street corner, and the dance floor. –DW

4 PM Carlos Johnson & the Serious Blues Band
Yet another alum of Billy Branch’s Sons of Blues who’s carved out a solo career for himself, Carlos Johnson is a wide-ranging guitarist who sometimes forgets to connect the dots on his mix-and-match flights of fancy — though in recent years his playing has been more reliable and tasteful than ever. –DW

Louisiana Bayou Station & Social Club

Noon Daryl Davis
This gifted young African-American blues and boogie pianist studied music at Howard University, but he doesn’t wear his erudition on his sleeve: his shows are jubilant celebrations, not textbook lessons. –DW

1:30 PM Ken Saydak
This pianist has been a sideman to some of the best — Willie Kent, Otis Rush, Lonnie Brooks, and Johnny Winter, just for starters — but his solo work is what’s brought him the most acclaim. Saydak’s blend of traditional and modern blues styles reflects both the dedication of a craftsman and the zeal of an explorer for whom even well-trod paths represent opportunities to discover new beauty. –DW

3 PM Ariyo
Currently the pianist in Billy Branch’s Sons of Blues, Sumito Ariyoshi moved here from Japan in the early 80s, and before long was sitting in with legends like Eddie Taylor, Robert Lockwood Jr., and Jimmy Rogers. Over the years he’s tamed his weakness for excessive ornament and expanded his stylistic range: a typical set now includes rumba-laced New Orleans R & B, driving Chicago-style blues and boogie, and nuanced pop balladry. –DW

4:30 PM Willis Prudhomme & Zydeco Express
See Thursday.

Mississippi Juke Joint

Noon Jimmy “Duck” Holmes
See Thursday.

1:30 PM Terry “Big T” Williams, Wesley Jefferson
Bassist Wesley Jefferson and guitarist Terry “Big T” Williams are fixtures on the thriving blues circuit around Clarksdale, Mississippi. Their recorded debut, this year’s Meet Me in the Cotton Field (Broke & Hungry), throbs with sinister energy even when they’re playing acoustically — and when they plug in, like they do for their bone-shattering version of “Catfish Blues,” the intensity is almost unbearable. –DW

3 PM Clarksdale Delta Blues Museum
The Mississippi kids who appeared with Billy Branch on the Front Porch stage earlier today play a set of their own. –DW

4:30 PM Jimmy “Duck” Holmes
See Thursday.

6 PM Chicago Jam Station with Guy King, Calvin “Fuzz” Jones, and Kenny Smith
This evening’s jam session is led by guitarist Guy King, ex-sideman to Willie Kent, former Muddy Waters bassist Calvin “Fuzz” Jones, and drummer Kenny Smith, son of Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Jones’s longtime partner both with Muddy and in the Legendary Blues Band. –BD

Route 66 Roadhouse

Noon The Significance of the Berlin Jazz Festival as told by Jim O’Neal
In 1977 Living Blues magazine cofounder Jim O’Neal assembled a revue called “the New Generation of Chicago Blues” for the Berlin Jazz Festival, and here he trades stories with some of the musicians involved. See today’s Petrillo lineup for more. –DW

2 PM Blues: A Family Affair with Johnnie Mae Dunson and Jimi “Prime Time” Smith
Johnnie Mae Dunson and her son Jimi discuss some of the blessings and challenges faced by a multigenerational blues family. See below for their Petrillo lineup set. –DW

4 PM Chicago Blues Today
Reader blues critic David Whiteis, author of Chicago Blues: Portraits and Stories, and Karen Hanson, who wrote the new guidebook Today’s Chicago Blues, talk about the state of the Windy City scene. –BD

Petrillo Music Shell

6 PM Johnnie Mae Dunson and Jimi “Prime Time” Smith
In the 50s and 60s Johnnie Mae Dunson occasionally wrote songs for Jimmy Reed or drummed in his band, and today she’s carrying on as a charismatic and flamboyant singer. Her son, guitarist Jimi “Prime Time” Smith, played with Reed for a while before his death in 1976, then in the 80s accompanied other older–generation bluesmen, notably harpist Big Walter Horton. He usually stays rooted in the traditional styles he learned from his mentors but enlivens them with youthful zest and imagination — and best of all, he writes most of his own material. –DW

7:15 PM Billy Branch’s Sons of Blues 30th-anniversary reunion
R In 1977 Jim O’Neal of Living Blues magazine was commissioned to put together a group of up-and-coming Chicago bluesmen to appear with Willie Dixon at the Berlin Jazz Festival under the name “the New Generation of Chicago Blues.” Those dozen or so musicians put the world on notice that there were a bunch of young Turks in Chicago itching to bring the blues into a new era, and several important bands, most notably Branch’s Sons of Blues, evolved directly out of the Berlin group. This performance won’t be a full reunion — Dixon passed away in 1992 and several others have dropped out of music or out of sight — but it should have plenty of the adventurous, untamed spirit of the original event. –DW

Saturday 6/9

Front Porch

11:30 AM Fruteland Jackson’s Birthday Party
Local multi-instrumentalist, singer–songwriter, and educator Fruteland Jackson celebrates his 54th birthday. There’s no word as to whether Jackson has come up with any special music for the occasion, but given his flair for spinning songs out of day-to-day experiences (“Is That Your Real Name?” is about strangers’ favorite thing to ask him), it wouldn’t surprise me if he had. –DW

1:30 PM Wanda Johnson & Shrimp City Slim
South Carolina singer Wanda Johnson sometimes sounds a bit brittle, but she makes up for it with a supple vibrato and a tone that stays warm even in her upper register — not to mention her Tracy Chapman-esque knack for blending soul, blues, folk, and pop. Pianist Gary Erwin, aka Shrimp City Slim, runs the Erwin label, which has released two of Johnson’s discs so far; his melodic, splay-fingered style complements her well. –DW

3:30 PM Chicago Blues Harmonica Project Part II featuring Little Arthur Duncan, Charlie Love, Big D, Jeffery Taylor, Mervyn “Harmonica” Hinds, and Reginald Cooper
Septuagenarian Little Arthur Duncan and south-side mainstay Mervyn “Harmonica” Hinds are the best-known harpists in this lineup. Two of the others often play other instruments: Charlie Love leads the Silky Smooth Band as a singer and guitarist, and Jeffery Taylor is a popular drummer on the north-side circuit. Big D, a relatively young player, mixes jazzy jump and emotional Delta blues a la Little Walter, and Reginald Cooper has jobbed around town but isn’t yet established. The backing band consists of guitarists Rick Kreher and Illinois Slim, bassist E.G. McDaniel, pianist Mark Brumbach, and drummer Twist Turner. As with the first Harmonica Project in 2005, Severn Records will release a compilation showcasing these musicians later this year. –DW

6 PM Khalif Wailin’ Walter
With his high-energy brand of roadhouse-rocking blues, this former sideman for Carl Weathersby and Lonnie Brooks hasn’t often seemed to care much about subtlety. But on his forthcoming CD, Let Me Say That Again, the guitarist and singer focuses his Albert King-influenced leads with unprecedented taste and craftsmanship — a level of sophistication befitting a musician who claims a degree in jazz performance from Roosevelt University. –DW

Crossroads

Noon Elmore James Jr. with Cadillac Zack
Like his legendary father, Elmore James Jr. can fire off triplet-laden slide-guitar riffs in a raw, Delta-influenced style. Though he’s also capable of playing more contemporary blues, closer to R & B, here he’s backed by a rootsy band led by California guitarist Cadillac Zack and will likely stick to the older sounds. –DW

1:45 PM David Dee & Family
Primarily known for his song “Going Fishing,” an insistent good-time shuffle that became something of a blues-club standard in the mid-80s, Saint Louis guitarist David Dee serves up sparse, stinging Albert King-influenced licks as a tangy complement to his soul-streaked vocals. His daughters, who’ll join him here, are talented R & B singers in their own right. –BD

3:45 PM Honeydripper All-Stars
Featured in a forthcoming film by director John Sayles, this intriguingly eclectic group includes performers from all over the country: veteran Chicago saxman Eddie Shaw, young Texas guitarist Gary Clark Jr., Mississippi harpist Arthur Lee Williams, jazz pianist Henderson Huggins from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Detroit-bred singer Mable John, a former Raelette who recorded for both Motown and Stax in the 60s — her sassy “Your Good Thing (Is About to End)” was a hit for Stax in ’66 — and now lives in LA. –BD

Louisiana Bayou Station & Social Club

12:30 PM Dave Drazin
A nationally renowned photoplay pianist as well as a music scholar and film archivist, Chicagoan David Drazin provides period-appropriate accompaniment for silent films, using jazz and blues instead of the usual ragtime. –DW

2 PM Drink Small
R South Carolina septuagenarian Drink Small, aka “the Blues Doctor,” styles himself as the modern-day equivalent of a medicine-show minstrel. A lot of his material is anachronistic — what might have been subversively outrageous in a 1930s tent revue in rural Mississippi doesn’t pack quite the same wallop today — but his sly, barbed wit and bottomless energy lift him out of self-caricature. Though some of his zingers are meant for the crowd, he usually leavens them with self-deprecating buffoonery so his audience can laugh rather than cringe. –DW

4 PM Willis Prudhomme & Zydeco Express
See Thursday.

5 PM Tony Llorens
Best known for his work in theater and film, Tony Llorens currently serves as music director of Chicago’s esteemed ETA Creative Arts Foundation theater. But he’s also put in time as keyboardist, bandleader, and producer for Albert King and worked with ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughan — as the best blues artists have always done, he fuses high- and low-culture sensibilities with refreshing irreverence. –DW

Mississippi Juke Joint

Noon Terry “Big T” Williams
The Mississippi bluesman plays solo here. See Friday.

1:30 PM Homemade Jamz’ Blues Band
This family band consists of three siblings from the Perry family of Tupelo, Mississippi: 15-year-old guitarist Ryan, 12-year-old bassist Kyle, and 8-year-old drummer Taya. They won second place at the Blues Foundation’s 23rd International Blues Challenge in Memphis this year and have gotten rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. –DW

3 PM Alvin Youngblood Hart
R It’s hard to believe that guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart, who these days bills himself as “the Cosmic American Love Child of Howlin’ Wolf and Link Wray,” was ever pigeonholed as a blues revivalist, but that’s exactly what happened after he released his all-acoustic debut, Big Mama’s Door, in 1996. Since then, though, he’s interspersed his rootsier efforts with projects as diverse as a collaboration with guitarist Audley Freed of the Black Crowes and an ensemble combining blues and jazz that also includes saxophonist David Murray, Meters guitarist Leo Nocentelli, and spoken word by author Ishmael Reed; under his own name he’s branched out into grungy garage rock, western swing, honky-tonk waltzes, and Sonny Sharrock-style free-form explorations. And no matter what he plays, his molasses-rich baritone and bottomless vocabulary of melodic and harmonic elaborations, on themes both vintage and modern, keep his music aesthetically and emotionally focused. Here Hart will play solo, but even in such a stripped-down context he’s reliably provocative and forward looking. –DW

4:30 PM Jimmy “Duck” Holmes
See Thursday.

6 PM Chicago Jam Station with Guy King, Calvin “Fuzz” Jones, and Kenny Smith
See Friday.

Route 66 Roadhouse

11 AM The Great Lakes Blues Society Summit
In recent years local and regional blues societies have emerged as major forces in promoting and supporting the music. Here representatives of the Great Lakes Blues Society, one of the more influential in the midwest, will lead a panel discussion hosted by Big City Rhythm & Blues magazine. –DW

1:30 PM Blues on Film: John Sayles’s The Honeydripper
Director John Sayles will discuss The Honeydripper, scheduled for release later this year, which stars Danny Glover as the proprietor of an Alabama juke joint and also features the Honeydripper All-Stars (see above) and guitarist Keb’ Mo’. The late R & B vocalist Ruth Brown, who was supposed to appear as well, became too ill to travel to Alabama for filming but did record some songs for the soundtrack. –DW

3:30 PM Cultural Tourism: A Virtual Blues Tour on the Blues Trail
Do busloads of tourists really benefit a local or regional blues scene, given that most of those people will probably never set foot in the community again? Living Blues magazine cofounder Jim O’Neal discusses the role of “cultural tourism” with representatives of state and local organizations in Chicago, Mississippi, and Louisiana that have taken the lead in sponsoring pub crawls, bus tours, and similar enterprises. –DW

Petrillo Music Shell

5 PM Nellie “Tiger” Travis
Nellie Travis’s sultry vocals lend themselves most effectively to slick R & B-flavored soul-blues, and on her latest disc, 2005’s Wanna Be With You (Da Man), recorded with veteran soul-blues producer Floyd Hamberlin, she’s at her best — she croons, testifies, and occasionally wails through its densely textured slow jams, jaunty dance-floor workouts, and agreeably abrasive up-tempo booty shakers. –DW

6:10 PM Big Jay McNeely with Jesse Scinto
R Honking tenor saxophone was the backbone of both 1950s rock ‘n’ roll and its direct precedent, postwar R & B, and nobody exemplifies that sound like LA horn titan Big Jay McNeely — his 1949 smash “Deacon’s Hop” became the prototype for countless primal, blistering sax solos to come. Big Jay didn’t finesse anything: he reared back and squawked one mile-wide note incessantly, often while flat on his back or being pushed around a nightclub on a cart, driving his young fans into an apoplectic frenzy. He still has that big sound down pat, and when I saw him last month, not long after his 80th birthday, he used some of his old moves, droppingto his knees or strolling through the crowd while wailing on his trademark fluorescent–lacquered horn. If Jesse Scinto’s band provides him with a sufficient level of swing, Big Jay is liable to blow the band shell down. –BD

7:20 PM Irma Thomas & the Professionals
R Hurricane Katrina robbed Irma Thomas of her home and her nightclub, but those losses haven’t hurt her music. She’s long been revered in New Orleans the way Koko Taylor is here, but her sweet, understated voice is the antithesis of Koko’s strutting growl. At an outdoor gig last summer Thomas drew from her latest album, After the Rain (Rounder), whose poignant songs reflect the heartbreak of Katrina’s aftermath. But she can also radiate happiness — for instance when she exhorts a crowd to wave their hankies along with the second-line-powered “I Done Got Over It,” one of the classic tunes she cut with Allen Toussaint in the early 60s. Thomas also recorded the original version of “Time Is on My Side” — and though she seldom performs it now, her plaintive rendition blows the Stones’ out of the water. –BD

8:30 PM Magic Slim & the Teardrops
Though they now make their home in Lincoln, Nebraska, Magic Slim and his Teardrops were long one of Chicago’s most reliable blues bands. The Teardrops value ensemble work over virtuosic soloing, leaving plenty of room for Slim’s barbed-wire guitar and pulverizing vocals; the group has a bottomless shuffle-dominated repertoire, ranging from the warhorse “Mustang Sally” and a hilariously ribald “Mother Fuyer” to decades-old obscurities. –BD

Rest In Peace Lutz Büchner 5. August 1968 in Bremen; † 11. März 2016 in Tokio, Japan deutscher Jazzsaxophonist

Producer Jon Hammond
Audio/Visual sound, color
Language English

#Deutsch :
Büchner studierte an der Musikhochschule Hamburg bei Herb Geller und arbeitete dann mit dem Posaunisten Ed Kröger. Seit 1994 war er Mitglied der NDR Bigband. Zwischen 1996 und 1998 trat er in Hamburg regelmäßig mit Lucas Lindholm, Heinz Lichius und Buggy Braune und Gästen wie Wolfgang Schlüter und Gene Jackson auf. Außerdem arbeitete er mit Jörg Achim Kellers Small Bigband und mit Jürgen Attigs Low X, mit der Band von Nils Gessinger.

Von 2000 bis 2004 war Büchner Mitglied der Band von Alex Riel, mit der er das Album live at Jive (mit Carsten Dahl und Jesper Lundgaard) einspielte, Tourneen durch Dänemark, Norwegen und Vietnam unternahm und im Rolf-Liebermann-Studio des NDR auftrat. Seit 2001 war er Mitglied in der Band von Joe Gallardo, mit der er bei verschiedenen Festivals auftrat und das Album A Latin Shade of Blue aufnahm. Seit 2011 gehörte er zu Addi Münsters Old Merrytale Jazzband

Mit dem eigenen Quartett (mit Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius und Pepe Berns) trat Büchner 2005 bei den 2. Hamburger Jazztagen in der Kampnagel-Fabrik auf. Im selben Jahr entstand mit dem Trio Konnex (mit Björn Lücker und Philipp Steen) das gleichnamige Album, das im Folgejahr erschien. 2006 erschien Büchners Album Ring (mit Sandra Hempel, Danny Gottlieb, Vladislav Sendecki, Paul Imm und Jürgen Attig).

Mit der NDR Bigband trat Büchner bei Festivals in London, Chicago, Paris, New York und Peking auf und nahm an Tourneen durch Südamerika, Spanien, Portugal und Südafrika teil. Während einer Japan-Tournee der NDR-Bigband starb er in Tokio im Alter von 47 Jahren an einem Herzinfarkt. Er hinterlässt seine Frau und einen Sohn.[1]

Joachim Knuth, Programmdirektor Hörfunk beim NDR, schrieb zum Tod Büchners:

„Die Nachricht vom Tod Lutz Büchners macht mich sehr betroffen. Ich habe ihn als einen liebenswürdigen Menschen erlebt, der leidenschaftlich mit und für Musik lebte. Lutz Büchner hatte den Jazz im Blut. Er liebte den spielerischen Umgang mit der Musik, die Improvisation. Der Tod dieses beeindruckenden Saxofonisten ist für die NDR Bigband, für den NDR, ein großer Verlust.“

– Joachim Knuth: NDR-Online.de; 12. März 2016[1]

Die offizielle Trauerfeier fand am 5. April 2016 in Hamburg statt, zu der auch Büchners musikalischer Begleiter Al Jarreau aus den USA angereist war. Während des Trauerzuges wurden Lieder im Stil einer Jazz-Beerdigung aus Jarreaus Heimatstadt New Orleans gespielt.

Mourning Lutz Büchner – Jon Hammond :
https://www.facebook.com/notes/jon-hammond/mourning-lutz-büchner/10156648708165287

Folks, I am really in shock from hearing news of the unexpected and very sad death of my good friend Lutz Büchner! I really didn’t want to say it on the internet after receiving the horrible news in communications with our mutual good friend and fellow musician / bandmate Heinz Lichius. This is so hard to get my head around and accept it but I know it’s true that Lutz suffered a fatal heart attack while on tour in Tokyo Japan with his beloved NDR-bigband with Peter Erskine on the band – I can see Lutz’ smile and hear his voice and music in my mind like it was yesterday – and we spoke and played together so many times. So now I see the news releases are already out on the news FEEDS from the NDR, Hamburger Abendblatt etc. and a few too-early mentions on the Facebook, so I know it’s time to write a few words for those of you who might not know of Lutz Büchner, as follows: As Joe Gallardo the great trombonist and long-time colleague of Lutz’ said in email to me last night: “As you well know, Lutz was first of all a great human being and secondly, he was a masterful player. Lutz was my brother. We will all miss him.” – The very first time I met Lutz was in 1995 on a rainy night in Hamburg Eimsbüttel at the Thursday night weekly jazz session in Jazzclub Birdland – I had heard him the week before and pushed my Hammond organ on the wheels through the rain to the club and got there real early, Hr. Reichert the owner opened up the club and I was telling Mr. Reichert I came the week before but didn’t get to play so “early bird gets the worm…and maybe I’ll get to play with Lutz Büchner!” – well we did it and by good luck my friend Joris Dudli the great drummer was there – it was magic from the first hit. That’s where it started, I was living in Hamburg to play music and write tunes – like so many musicians following in the footsteps of The Beatles, by invitation of my sponsor Knut Benzner journalist moderator on the NDR. From then on together with main man Heinz Lichius drums who I had met just before when Heinz came over to meet me one afternoon – Heinz had recommended to check out Lutz, one of the finest rising musicians on the Hamburg scene. We had a lot of great times together on the bandstand and off from that time on – we played in Hamburg and his hometown of Bremen – turned out to be that Lutz was a real life jazz angel who saved my life at least twice, one time involving bringing me to the hospital / krankenhaus and translating to me what they were about to do to me – we escaped out the side door and the doctor came to our gig that night! I met Lutz’ Mom and Dad beautiful people when they came to hear us play in Bremen at Studio club April 7, 1998 – and most recently our last gigs together with my favorite musicians Michael Leuschner, (Heinz Lichius of course) “Fiete” Ernst-Friedrich Fiete Felsch NDR horn section brothers along with Joe Berger guitar, probably best gig of my life – Lutz was so happy to have found his love with his wife Bettina and he was always crazy about his son Asmus and his step daughters by Bettina, the happiest I have ever seen him, he glowed in the dark he had that much joy! — Back in 2005 I had an idea, I said to my long-time girlfriend Jennifer: Lutz is one of the greatest saxophonists I ever heard, I want to feature him on a CD release, he could be making a great record every day! I couldn’t believe that he didn’t have any feature albums out at that point – so I discussed it with Knut Benzner and we all co-produced a recording session for this purpose in the famous Studio 1 at NDR, the NDR SESSIONS Projekt was born, with the addition of “Joe G” / Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius and myself, Rudolf Grosser at the controls big SSL console, we started playing in the morning and I played through the magic bass amp belonging to Lucas Lindholm – the boys took one long coffee break and other than that we recorded tunes all day long – I am so grateful that I’ll always have this recording date together with Lutz, of course later on Lutz came out with more records – but this one for me is my special keepsake that went down with the blessings of NDR with the help of Knut Benzner and Axel Dürr. So many stories I can tell you, but most importantly everybody loved Lutz, I know there are a lot of tears flowing now around Hamburg and Bremen, my heart goes out to Lutz’ Family, Friends and Musicians music brothers and sisters! The 2nd to the last time we played together, I hadn’t seen Lutz for a while and he told me about a real miracle of survival when he was driving on the autobahn with Bettina and the kinder all his happy Family in the car, I think there was ice on the road – a car slammed in to the back of his car demolishing the car, but Lutz’ horns were in the trunk – they all got crushed but it saved his Family! They were all shaken up but OK – the lucky star was shining over them, and even though Lutz is not with us physically anymore, his lucky star will always be shining – he was competely dedicated to the NDR-bigband family of musicians and his own Family – always a huge inspiration to me as a person and master musician, rest in peace my very special good friend Lutz Büchner – my deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Lutz’ Mom and Dad and Bettina and his son Asmus and step children by Bettina – all the folks who know and love Lutz, sincerely, Jon Hammond

Report / Obituary from Stefan Gerdes NDR: https://www.ndr.de/orchester_chor/bigband/band/Trauer-um-Lutz-Buechner,buechner146.html – Stand: 12.03.2016 15:00 Uhr – Lesezeit: ca.4 Min. Trauer um Lutz Büchner “Der Saxofonist Lutz Büchner ist am 11. März während einer Japan-Tour der NDR Bigband im Alter von 47 Jahren an den Folgen eines Herzinfarkts verstorben. Es war ein großes Glück für die NDR Bigband, den Menschen und Musiker Lutz Büchner seit 22 Jahren in ihren Reihen zu haben. Er war ein grandioser, ein wahrhaft bedeutender Saxofonist mit einer unverkennbaren, einzigartigen Spielweise, die selbst dem ältesten und schon oft gehörten Jazzstandard immer wieder neue Seiten abgewinnen konnte. Vor allem aber brachte er auch seine Persönlichkeit in die Band ein: seinen Humor, sein ausgeglichenes Temperament und sein großes Interesse an allen Dingen des Lebens, das weit über die Musik hinaus reichte. Lutz Büchner war ein echter Teamplayer, vor und hinter den Kulissen.

Knuth: “Er lebte leidenschaftlich für und mit Musik”
Joachim Knuth, NDR Programmdirektor Hörfunk: “Die Nachricht vom Tod Lutz Büchners macht mich sehr betroffen. Ich habe ihn als einen liebenswürdigen Menschen erlebt, der leidenschaftlich mit und für Musik lebte. Lutz Büchner hatte den Jazz im Blut. Er liebte den spielerischen Umgang mit der Musik, die Improvisation. Der Tod dieses beeindruckenden Saxofonisten ist für die NDR Bigband, für den NDR, ein großer Verlust. Meine Gedanken sind in diesen Stunden bei der Familie und den Freunden Lutz Büchners.” Programmhinweis
In Erinnerung an Lutz Büchner stellen wir in der Sendung am 20. März ab 22.05 Uhr einige seiner schönesten Aufnahmen mit der NDR Bigband vor. — Fasziniert von Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner wurde am 5. August 1968 in Bremen geboren. Er interessierte sich schon früh für Musik, bekam klassischen Klarinettenunterricht und entdeckte als Teenager nach einem Konzertbesuch den Jazz. Als er den Trompeter Miles Davis hörte, faszinierte ihn die Möglichkeit, sich auch jenseits der geschrieben Noten auf eine ganz persönliche Weise ausdrücken zu können. Dieser improvisierten, sich immer neu erfindenden Musik wollte er sich widmen.

Lutz Büchner kam nach Hamburg und studierte Saxofon bei Herb Geller, dem damals bekanntesten Solisten der NDR Bigband. Schon bald spielte er dort im Saxofonsatz – zunächst als Gast, seit 1994 als festes Mitglied. In den Mittelpunkt zog es ihn, den eher besonnen Menschen, dabei nicht so sehr. Aber wenn das Scheinwerferlicht auf ihn zeigte und er zum Solo ansetzte, dann entwickelte sein Spiel eine ganz besondere Wirkung: Mit geschlossenen Augen stand er da, die Töne flossen ebenso überraschend wie logisch aus seinem Instrument, sein ganzer Körper schien sich dabei in Musik zu verwandeln.

In seinem Spiel steckte besondere Tiefe
Viele Gäste der NDR Bigband haben ihn und sein Spiel so erlebt und geschätzt: Jazzgrößen wie Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, Omar Sosa oder Abdullah Ibrahim genossen es, wenn Lutz Büchner neben ihnen spielte. Der Amerikaner Dale Wilson widmete ihm und seinem Saxofon-Kollegen Fiete Felsch eine ganze Big-Band-Suite, und die Komponistin Maria Schneider wollte ihn nach einem Besuch bei der NDR Bigband am liebsten gleich nach New York mitnehmen. Es waren nicht nur seine technischen Fertigkeiten und seine nahezu grenzenlosen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten, mit denen Lutz Büchner so begeisterte. In seinem Spiel steckte eine besondere Tiefe. “Es ist sein Sound”, sagte Maria Schneider einmal, “Lutz berührt mich.”

Solistische Höhenflüge und zarte Lyrik
In der Improvisation spiegelt sich ja immer der ganze Mensch. So konnte Lutz Büchner auf dem Tenorsaxofon unendlich packend, mitreißend und kraftvoll spielen. Unvergessen ist sein solistischer Höhenflug in der Duke-Ellington-Hommage “Diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue”, in der er minutenlang ein loderndes Feuer immer neu entfachte, bis die Zuschauer bei einem Auftritt der NDR Bigband in New York am Schluss buchstäblich aus den Sitzen gerissen wurden. Seine andere, lyrische Seite war besonders stark auf der Klarinette zu hören, auf der er zu den außergewöhnlichsten Stimmen des modernen Jazz zählte, vielleicht sogar weltweit. Intim und zart, wie gehaucht schwebten die Töne in die Luft, jeder von ihnen hatte Bedeutung.

Nicht nur in der NDR Bigband, auch in eigenen Formationen waren sein ausgeprägtes Spiel und seine ausgefeilten Kompositionen zu hören. Mit seinem Quartett (mit Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius und Pepe Berns) trat Lutz Büchner 2005 bei den 2. Hamburger Jazztagen in der Kampnagel-Fabrik auf. Im selben Jahr entstand mit dem Trio Connex (mit Björn Lücker und Philipp Steen) ein gleichnamiges Album, und 2006 erschien seine vielbeachtete, von der Kritik hochgelobte CD “Ring”.

“Mein Ziel ist es”, hat Lutz Büchner einmal gesagt, “ganz im Moment zu spielen.” Wir verdanken ihm viele unvergessliche Momente. Mit ihm verlieren wir einen lieben Menschen, einen großen Künstler und einen wunderbaren Kollegen.

Google Translation of Stefan Gerdes’ obituary of Lutz Büchner: Trauer um Lutz Büchner — The saxophonist Lutz Büchner died on March 11 during a Japan tour the NDR Bigband at the age of 47 years to a heart attack. It was a great happiness for the NDR Bigband, to have the man and musician Lutz Büchner for 22 years in its ranks. He was a magnificent, truly significant saxophonist with an unmistakable, unique play that even the oldest and often included jazz standard could abgewinnen new pages repeatedly. Above all, he also expressed his personality in the band a: his humor, his even temperament and his great interest in all things in life, which extended far beyond the music. Lutz Büchner was a real team player, before and behind the scenes.
Knuth: “He lived passionately and with music”
Joachim Knuth, NDR program director Radio: “The news of the death Lutz Büchner makes me very concerned I have experienced him as an amiable man who lived passionately and music Lutz Büchner had the Jazz in the blood He loved the playful use of… the music, the improvisation. the death of this impressive saxophonist for the NDR Bigband, for NDR, a great loss. My thoughts are at this time with the family and friends Lutz Büchner. ”
program Note
Daughter Lutz Büchner we in the mission on March 20, from 22:05 some of his most beautiful recordings with the NDR Bigband ago.
Fascinated by Miles Davis
Lutz Büchner was born on August 5, 1968 in Bremen. He took an early interest in music, got classical clarinet lessons and discovered as a teenager after a concert jazz. When he heard the trumpeter Miles Davis, he was fascinated by the opportunity to express themselves beyond the written notes on a very personal way. he wanted to devote himself to this improvised, always reinventing music.
Lutz Büchner came to Hamburg and studied saxophone with Herb Geller, the then famous soloists the NDR Bigband. Soon he was playing in saxophone sentence – initially as a guest, since 1994 as a permanent member. In the center, he moved, the more prudent people, not so much. But when the spotlight was on him and he started to Solo, then developed his game a very special effect: With eyes closed, he stood there, the sounds flowed as surprising as logically from his instrument, his whole body seemed to be doing in music to transform , — In his game put special depth
Many guests of the NDR Bigband have him and his game so experienced and appreciated: jazz greats such as Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, João Bosco, or Omar Sosa Abdullah Ibrahim enjoyed it when Lutz Büchner played next to them. The Americans Dale Wilson dedicated to him and his saxophone colleagues Fiete Felsch a whole big band suite, and the composer Maria Schneider wanted to take him for a visit to the NDR Bigband prefer equal to New York. It was not just his technique and its almost limitless expressive possibilities with which Lutz Büchner enthusiastic way. In his play put a special depth. “It is his sound,” Maria Schneider once said, “Lutz touched me.”

Soloistic booms and delicate poetry
In the improvisation so the whole man always reflects. So Lutz Büchner could play endlessly enthralling, exciting and powerful on the tenor saxophone. Unforgotten is his solo flight of the Duke Ellington Tribute “diminuendo, crescendo and crescendissimo in blue”, in which he several minutes a blazing fire always rekindled until the audience literally at a performance of the NDR Bigband in New York at the end of the Sitting were torn. His other, lyrical side was particularly strong to listen to the clarinet, on which he was one of the most extraordinary voices of modern jazz, perhaps the world. Intimate and delicate, like breathy floated the sounds in the air, each of them had meaning.

Not only in the NDR Bigband, even in his own formations were heard his strong play and his polished compositions. With his quartet (Sandra Hempel, Heinz Lichius and Pepe Berns) joined Lutz Büchner 2005 at the 2nd Hamburg jazz days in the Kampnagel factory. In the same year (with Björn Lücker and Philipp Steen) was created with the trio Connex a self-titled album, and in 2006 he released his highly acclaimed, highly acclaimed by critics CD “Ring”.

“My goal is,” Lutz Büchner once said, “to play the very moment.” We owe him many unforgettable moments. With him we lose a loved one, a great artist and a wonderful colleague.

Roy Clark Television Interview with Jon Hammond just before Roy appeared on the American Eagle Awards in Nashville Tennessee during Summer NAMM Show – Roy Clark an American Living Legend and long-time member of The Grand Ole Opry and The Country Music Hall of Fame – Roy’s wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Clark

Roy Linwood Clark (born April 15, 1933) is an American country music musician and performer. He is best known for hosting Hee Haw, a nationally televised country variety show, from 1969 to 1992. Roy Clark has been an important and influential figure in country music, both as a performer and helping to popularize the genre.
During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30-million viewership for Hee Haw. Clark is highly regarded and renowned as a guitarist and banjo player, and is also skilled on classical guitar and several other instruments. Although he has had hit songs as a pop vocalist (e.g., “Yesterday, When I Was Young” and “Thank God and Greyhound”), his instrumental skill has had an enormous effect on generations of bluegrass and country musicians. He has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, since 1987[1][2] and The Country Music Hall of Fame. BIOGRAPHY: Born in Meherrin, Virginia, Clark lived as a teenager in southeast Washington, D.C., where his father worked at the Washington Navy Yard. At 14, Clark began playing banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and by age 15 he had already won two National Banjo Championships[3] and world banjo/guitar flatpick championships. He was simultaneously pursuing a sporting career, first as a baseball player and then as a boxer, before dedicating himself solely to music. At 17, he had his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
At the age of 23, Clark obtained his pilot’s license and then bought a 1953 Piper Tri-Pacer (N1132C), which he flew for many years. This plane was raffled off on December 17, 2012, to benefit the charity Wings of Hope.[4] He has owned other planes, including a Mitsubishi MU-2, Stearman PT-17[5] and Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond 1A bizjet.[6]
By 1955, he was a regular on Jimmy Dean’s Washington, D.C., television program. Dean, who valued punctuality among musicians in his band, the Texas Wildcats, fired Clark for habitual tardiness, telling him, “You’re the most talented person I’ve ever fired.” Clark married Barbara Joyce Rupard on August 31, 1957.[7] In 1960, Clark went out to Las Vegas, where he worked as a guitarist in a band led by former West Coast Western Swing bandleader-comedian Hank Penny. During the very early 1960s, he was also prominent in the backing band for Wanda Jackson—known as the Party Timers—during the latter part of her rockabilly period.[8]
When Dean was tapped to host The Tonight Show in the early 1960s, he asked Clark to appear, introducing him to a national audience for the first time. Subsequently, Clark appeared on The Beverly Hillbillies as a recurring character (actually two: he played businessman Roy Halsey and Roy’s mother, Myrtle). Once, on an episode of the Sunday evening Jackie Gleason Show dedicated to country music, Clark played a blistering rendition of “Down Home”. Later, he appeared on an episode of The Odd Couple wherein he played “Malagueña”.[9]
In 1963, Clark signed to Capitol Records and had three top ten hits. He switched to Dot Records and again scored hits. He later recorded for ABC Records, which had acquired Dot, and MCA Records, which absorbed the ABC label.
Clark as “Myrtle Halsey” on The Beverly Hillbillies, 1968.
In the mid ’60s, he co-hosted, along with Buck Owens, a weekday daytime country variety series for NBC entitled “Swingin’ Country”, which was cancelled after two seasons. In 1969, Clark and Buck Owens were the hosts of Hee Haw. The show was dropped by CBS Television in 1971 but continued to run in syndication for twenty-one more years. During its tenure, Clark was a member of the Million Dollar Band and participated in a host of comedy sketches. In 1983, Clark opened the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre in Branson, Missouri, becoming the first country music star to have his own venue there, thus beginning a trend which led to Branson becoming a center of live music performance, as it is today. Many of the celebrities who play in Branson first performed at the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre.
Clark frequently played in Branson during the 1980s and 1990s. He has since sold the venue (now owned by the Hughes Brothers and renamed the Hughes American Family Theatre) and gone back to a fairly light touring schedule, which usually includes a performance with Ramona Jones and the Jones Family Band at their annual tribute to Clark’s old Hee Haw co-star Grandpa Jones in Mountain View, Arkansas.[citation needed]
In addition to his musical skill, Clark has often displayed his talents as a comedian and actor. During his years on Hee Haw, Clark entertained with numerous comedy sketches, including a recurring feature where he played the clerk of the “Empty Arms Hotel”. Clark released several albums of his comedic performances, to varying critical acclaim and commercial success. Clark is one of the few surviving regular male cast members from the show.[citation needed]
Clark has endorsed Mosrite, Gretsch, and many other brands of guitars during his career. He currently endorses Heritage Guitars, which makes a Roy Clark model. On August 22, 1987, Clark was made a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He plays an annual benefit concert at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, the proceeds of which go to fund scholarships for aspiring musicians.[citation needed]
For many years Clark has made his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Roy Clark Elementary School in Tulsa’s Union School District was named in his honor in 1978. Fellow Oklahoma resident Mickey Mantle arranged for Clark to sing “Yesterday When I Was Young” at his funeral (which Clark did in 1995).[10]
On May 17, 2009, Clark was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with Barbara Mandrell and Charlie McCoy. On September 23, 2010, Clark sang “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch at Dodger Stadium in a game featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the San Diego Padres. On April 12, 2011, Clark was honored by the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He will be honored by the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame as Oklahoma’s Music Ambassador for Children and will be presented with a commendation from Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin.

“Organ meets Bigband” feat. Jon Hammond:
Today at 8:30pm
Starts in about 11 hours · 59°F Mostly Cloudy

Am 01.08.2015 ist das Landesjugendjazzorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
(LaJazzO MV) mit seinem diesjährigen Solisten Jon Hammond wieder im
Klostergarten Rostock zu Gast.
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 –
Verve Records.
Programm: “Organ meets Bigband”
Leitung: Michael Leuschner
