Rare Footage from inside Jazz Kneipe Frankfurt!

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

JON HAMMOND: “WHERE’S THE GIG?” – Alex Walsh

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jon in the early 70s

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jon has released four CDs

The show has universal appeal. Big Hammond orgel sound – 100% organic

“Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen?
Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jon has released four CDs

Mr. Hammond has toured worldwide since 1991 using the incredible Sk1 organ by Hammond Suzuki..™ “Classic Hammond Sound…In A Suitcase!” The Jon Hammond Show is a funky swinging instrumental revue, featuring top international soloists. The show has universal appeal. Big Hammond orgel sound – 100% organic

“Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen?
Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).”

Steve Luongo “Who is this Joe Berger?” Jon Hammond: I was there in the station with my Sony D-7 recorder, Luongo kept dodging the question
saying “Oh we can’t talk about him right now.” That only inflamed Howard’s curiosity even more.
The truth of the story is that Joe Berger is the man who not only introduced John Entwistle to Rat Race Choir band which was already dysfunctional,
he convinced John to come to Chicago Summer The NAMM Show in 1987 to play a set with them at the Vic Theatre with a little bit of help from myself
Jon Hammond as documentarian for my cable TV program on MCTV – John Entwistle was already a long-time friend of Joe Berger and we filmed
him doing an epic jam in Frankfurt Germany together with Zak Starkey on drums, Joe Berger guitar, John Entwistle bass and special guests
Jack Bruce, Steve Stevens at the Soundcheck party in Dorian Gray nightclub inside the Frankfurt Airport on the night of February 2, 1987
musikmesse Party as seen on my TV show The Jon Hammond Show. Fast forward to November ’87, here we are at The Stone Pony
Joe Berger is at the mixing console, I am filming (Jon Hammond) with a special Sony industrial camera GCS-1 like film, I went all over the
world with my GCS-1 cameras documenting musical history for cable access broadcast, we are now in our 33rd year on MNN TV Channel 1 Manhattan Neighborhood Network
and streaming worldwide. It’s time to set the record straight on who Joe Berger2 is and how he put John Entwistle together with this group
which was already broken up and somehow between Joe Berger and John Entwistle they managed to keep them together enough to play
a short tour, even though they were fighting like babies off the stage (also on camera but I prefer not to show it) Mark Hitt did a fantastic job
on the guitar, Jack Hotop keyboards also outstanding, Steve Luongo played drums and was self-appointed tour manager which caused a lot of
problems in my humble opinion – Dave Chmela vocalist and Luongo are not even on speaking terms, a lot of things went wrong but this
documentary footage was early in the tour – the answer to Howard Stern’s question “Who is this Joe Berger” is right here folks!
Rock ’n Roll history, Bill Curbishly attended the K-Rock Blood Drive gig that kicked it off at The Bottom Line, after reporting back to Pete Townshend
about the gigs with John Entwistle and Rat Race Choir thanks to Joe Berger, Pete Townshend sent a telegram to John Entwistle​, John told me
that Peter said for him to stop playing with the American blokes or there would never be a Who reunion. A few weeks later The Who John Entwistle,
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry went in to rehearsals and a subsequent reunion tour after a period of being on non-speaking terms.
So thanks to Joe Berger​ and in part myself after we brought the films to England and delivered them to John Entwistle at his London house
from the Vic Theatre gig and Dorian Gray Nightclub Frankfurt, John felt confident enough to fly over to New York and make the tour, this footage is directly out of
my camera folks, enjoy it and keep the Spirit of the late great John Entwistle who very sadly passed away on June 27, 2002 in Las Vegas NV
at the Hard Rock Hotel, RIP John Entwistle – sincerely, Jon Hammond​ – Next segment: Mike Vax Takes it Up an Octave at JEN 2016 Louisville Louisville, Kentucky!

Jazz ist spielerischer Umgang mit Musik
NDR Bigband Saxofonist Lutz Büchner im Interview
Lutz Büchner, Saxofon und Klarinette, hat sich mit 16 Jahren das Jazz-Virus eingefangen.
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.

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

Er studierte bei Herb Geller und spielte in den Bands von Joe Gallardo und der dänischen Drummer-Legende Alex Riel. Er war beteiligt bei Projekten mit Detlev Beier, Ed Kröger, Wolfgang Schlüter, Lucas Lindholm, beim hr, der WDR Big Band und dem Metropol Orchestra Amsterdam. Mit seinem eigenen Quartett nahm er die viel beachtete CD “Ring” mit Danny Gottlieb am Schlagzeug auf.

Seit 1994 ist Lutz Büchner festes Mitglied der NDR Bigband.
Was faszinierte Sie so am Jazz?

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.

Was schätzen Sie an der Arbeit in der NDR Bigband?
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?

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.

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?

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.

Saturday, March 12, 2016: 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

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

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

Moving East he attended Berklee College of Music and played venues as diverse as Boston’s “Combat Zone” in the striptease clubs during the ’70’s and the exclusive Wychmere Harbor Club in Cape Cod, where he was house organist with the late great trumpet player Lou Colombo and developed a lasting friendship with House Speaker Tip O’Neill.

Hamburg Germany — The Hamburger DOM is Open for Summer! – a Hamburg tradition! Jon Hammond
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburger_Dom
The Hamburger Dom[1] is a large fair held at Heiligengeistfeld fair ground in central Hamburg, Germany. With three fairs (spring, summer and winter) per year it is the biggest and the longest fair throughout Germany and attracts approximately ten million visitors per year.[citation needed] It is also referred to as a Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair).
Hamburger Dom puts on an impressive firework display at the Heiligengeistfeld, that can be seen across most of the city, every Friday that it runs at 22:30 hrs.
A market in or in front of Hamburg’s Cathedral (German: Hamburger Dom) was first recorded in 1329, at the beginning only in special seasons like Christmas. With the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century the fair was also held at other times. After the demolition of the cathedral (1804–1807), the market was held on the Gänsemarkt (lit. geese market) in 1804, but kept the name “Dom”. Since 1892, the fair has been held at Heiligengeistfeld (lit. field of the Holy Spirit) and the name was used for all fairs at this location.[3]
Winterdom or Dommarkt (winter fair or cathedral market): 30 days in late autumn
Sommerdom or Hummelfest (summer fair or Hummel market):[4] since 1947: 31 days during summer
Frühlingsdom (spring fair): since 1948, 30 days in spring:
