Pocket Funk as heard on The Jon Hammond Show TV program on MNNTV and on Late Rent album – Behind The Beat http://behindthebeat.com/2004/12/jon-hammond-late-rent/ by Steve Rosenfeld “Jon Hammond says “the fingers are the singers.'” The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. “Late Rent” draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists. It shows why the Hammond organ is one of the most enduring electric instruments and why Hammond is one of its best players.”

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

About JON HAMMOND:

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

About LORI

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

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

Recreating LATE RENT CD Product

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for everything Steve Jobs,

sincerely,

About JON HAMMOND:

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

About LORI

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

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

Recreating LATE RENT CD Product

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for everything Steve Jobs,

sincerely,

“This was, without exaggeration, one of the best acoustics-related technical decisions for the NDR I have been involved in during the past few years,” comments NDR sound engineer Michael Plötz. “The digital audio world now enjoys incomparably good sound thanks to the use of the AX 24 in the production chain of this studio. The combination of a DAD AX24 and the SSL Duality console places us in a new ‘analog/digital world'”.

NDR Regie 1 in the Funkhaus am Rothenbaum

The completely reworked Studio 1 and Regie 1 at NDR Radio’s Funkhaus am Rothenbaum is designed primarily for recording the NDR Bigband, one of the best finest bands in Germany. Studio 1 is built around a 72 fader SSL Duality and Sequoia digital audio workstation software. Eight NTP DAD AX24 converters are connected via MADI to the workstation.

NDR Bigband Saxophonist Lutz Buechner Feature Interview by Jessica Schlage Now Online

NDR Bigband Saxofonist Lutz Büchner im Interview

*LINK: Jazz ist spielerischer Umgang mit Musik

Sie scheinen zu den Musikern zu gehören, die sich sehr geradlinig auf Jazz fokussieren. Oder trügt dieser Eindruck?
Lutz Büchner: Das tut er nicht! Ich habe mit 16 angefangen, mich für Jazz zu begeistern. Damals wurde ich von meinen Eltern auf ein Konzert mitgenommen, und dann hat sich das so nach und nach ergeben. Ich habe angefangen, mir viele Platten zu kaufen und weil ich aus Bremen komme, hatte ich das Glück, dort eine ältere Generation von Jazz-Musikern kennenzulernen: Ed Kröger und Uli Beckerhoff zum Beispiel. Die konnten mir natürlich tolle Plattentipps geben, so dass ich damals Miles Davis rauf und runter gehört habe und so immer weiter eingestiegen bin.

Biografisches in Kürze

Jahrgang 1968, aufgewachsen in Bremen. Lutz Büchner lebt heute in Hamburg.

Instrumente: Saxofone, Klarinetten, Flöten

Studium bei Herb Geller an der Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg. Büchner spielte in den Bands der dänischen Drummer-Legende Alex Riel und in der Latin Jazz Band von Joe Gallardo. Mit seinem eigenen Quartett nahm er die viel beachtete CD “Ring” mit Danny Gottlieb am Schlagzeug auf und trat bei internationalen Festivals auf.

Seit 1994 ist Lutz Büchner festes Mitglied der NDR Bigband.

Was faszinierte Sie so am Jazz?
Lutz Büchner: Ich glaube, einfach die Tatsache, dass da improvisiert wird. Ich hatte davor klassischen Klarinettenunterricht und bin da immer wieder an meine Grenzen gestoßen. Beispielsweise wenn ich im Unterricht Etüden vorspielen musste und irgendwo auf der zweiten Seite eine damals für mich noch anspruchsvolle Stelle kam – da habe ich dann schon lange vor dieser Stelle darüber nachgedacht, dass sie gleich kommt und dadurch total unkonzentriert gespielt.
Durch den Jazz habe ich einen viel spielerischeren Umgang mit der Musik gefunden. Dadurch, dass ich improvisiere und mir selbst aussuchen kann, was ich wann spiele, finde ich viel besser in einen musikalischen Fluss. Das ist bis heute mein vorrangiges Ziel: ganz im Moment zu spielen.)
AUDIO I

Multiinstrumentalist aus Überzeugung

Jedes Instrument, das Lutz Büchner verwendet, erfordert ein ganz eigenes Spiel. Die ganz unterschiedlichen Klangfarben machen gerade die Improvisation für ihn so reizvoll.

Was schätzen Sie an der Arbeit in der NDR Bigband?
Lutz Büchner: Grundsätzlich die Herausforderung! Dadurch habe ich sehr viel gelernt, auch durch das Spielen mit unterschiedlichen Musikern, wenn wir Gäste haben.
Und dann passiert es auch hin und wieder, dass wir mit Arrangeuren zusammenarbeiten dürfen, die uns als Solisten sehr gut im Blick haben, und dann in meinem Fall nicht einfach eine Stimme für das Zweite Tenorsaxofon schreiben, sondern für Lutz Büchner. Wenn das passiert, dann sind das wirklich die tollsten Konzerte, weil dann die eigentliche Stärke dieser Bigband zum Tragen kommt: ihre Solisten, die alle außerordentlich gut sind, dabei aber aus völlig unterschiedlichen stilistischen Richtungen kommen. Das gibt der Band erst ihre eigene Farbe.
Würden Sie also die Arrangeure dazu einladen, sich von der NDR Bigband inspirieren zu lassen?
Lutz Büchner: Dazu ein Beispiel: Einer von meinen Lieblingsarrangeuren ist Michael Gibbs, der sehr von Gil Evans geprägt ist, einem der wichtigsten Arrangeure im modernen Bigband-Jazz. Und der wiederum – so hat mir Michael Gibbs einmal erzählt – ist manchmal zu den Aufnahme-Sessions seiner Projekte gekommen und hatte lediglich Skizzen der Stücke dabei, keine fertigen Partituren. Stattdessen hat er mit der Band ausprobiert, wer worüber am besten spielen kann. Dann hat er die Musiker zum Kaffee-Trinken geschickt und das Arrangement fertiggeschrieben.
Er hat sich also davon beeinflussen lassen, welche Farben die Solisten beisteuern können. Von dieser Arbeitsweise profitieren am Ende alle: Arrangeur, Musiker und nicht zuletzt das Publikum.
AUDIO II

Gute Arrangeure ticken wie Musiker

Lutz Büchner schätzt an Arrangeuren wie Michael Gibbs, wenn sie für den Musiker und nicht lediglich für die jeweilige Stimme, das Instrument schreiben.

Wie viele Ihrer Kollegen haben Sie der NDR Bigband ja auch schon eigene Kompositionen vorgelegt. Wie fühlt es sich an, auf einmal selbst in der Rolle des Arrangeurs zu sein?
Lutz Büchner: Das ist auf jeden Fall etwas Besonderes! Ich bin nicht der allerschnellste Schreiber und habe also wochenlang am Klavier und am Computer gesessen und versucht, mir vorzustellen, wie das klingt, wenn die Bigband das Stück spielt. Und wenn die Musiker dann das umsetzen, was man sich so lange überlegt hat, ist das ganz toll, weil es immer viel wärmer und lebendiger klingt, als man sich das vorher hätte träumen lassen. Das ist unheimlich spannend und dieser Moment, wenn die Aufnahmen dann fertig sind und man sie auch noch selbst gut findet, der ist wirklich einzigartig.

Hier eine Rezension eines Konzerts im Literaturhaus Hamburg:
„Die Welt” schrieb

„Da steht dann Lutz Büchner, (…) und spielt. Und spielt. SPIELT. Mit den Tönen, mit den rhythmischen Schwingungen, mit den Energien, die ihm von seinen beiden Spielpartnern zurückgespiegelt werden. Hoppla, das war gut. Jazz war das, der Tradition durchaus gewogen, und geprägt von der Expressivität der späten Sechziger, doch über Heldenverehrung schon lange hinaus.”

CD Aufnahmen als Sideman:

Joe Gallardo’s Latino Blue

Jack Bauers schrieb für „It’s all about Jazz”:
This charming two–disc set by Germany’s world–class NDR Bigband was recorded in 1998, (…) the NDR ensemble steps aside on five numbers for a quartet („Body and Soul”) or quintet with Lutz Büchner sitting in for Benny, Wolfgang Schlüter for Hampton, Charly Antolini for Krupa and Simon Nabatov for Stacy or Wilson with bassist Lucas Lindholm rounding out the group. The superb tenor soloist on „Body and Soul” is Danny Moss, while Büchner is equally dazzling on „Memories of You,” everyone sparkles on the fleet–footed „Dizzy Spells” and Antolini dons his most persuasive Krupa wardrobe on the classic „Sing, Sing, Sing” (on which Büchner, Moss, Nabatov and trumpeter Ingolf Burkhardt toss in handsome solos).
Yes, this is Swing Era music, but it’s played about as well as it can be by one of the world’s leading contemporary Jazz ensembles. In other words, if you find big bands appealing, you’ll warm quickly to this one.

“This was, without exaggeration, one of the best acoustics-related technical decisions for the NDR I have been involved in during the past few years,” comments NDR sound engineer Michael Plötz. “The digital audio world now enjoys incomparably good sound thanks to the use of the AX 24 in the production chain of this studio. The combination of a DAD AX24 and the SSL Duality console places us in a new ‘analog/digital world'”
