In the year 1981 I flew to Paris France aboard the Air France Concorde Jet from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Paris Aéroport – Charles de Gaulle (CDG), flight lasted for 3 hours and 26 minutes. I shot these photos of Jerry and Grateful Dead at the Hippodrome de Vincennes / Hippodrome de Pantin, Paris, France with my Nikon Nikon F3 with motor – and ‘The Other One’ Bob Weir #JerryGarcia #GratefulDead #BobWeir #NikonF3 #JonHammond #Paris

Jerome John Garcia (August 1, 1942 – August 9, 1995) was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, best known for his work as the lead guitarist and as a vocalist with the band the Grateful Dead, which came to prominence during the counterculture era in the 1960s.[2][3]Although he disavowed the role, Garcia was viewed by many as the leader or “spokesman” of the group.[2][3][4][5]
One of its founders, Garcia performed with the Grateful Dead for their entire thirty-year career (1965–1995). Garcia also founded and participated in a variety of side projects, including the Saunders–Garcia Band (with longtime friend Merl Saunders), the Jerry Garcia Band, Old and in the Way, the Garcia/Grisman acoustic duo, Legion of Mary, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage (which Garcia co-founded with John Dawson and David Nelson).[2] He also released several solo albums, and contributed to a number of albums by other artists over the years as a session musician. He was well known for his distinctive guitar playing and was ranked 13th in Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” cover story.[6]
Later in life, Garcia was sometimes ill because of his diabetes, and in 1986 went into a diabetic coma that nearly cost him his life. Although his overall health improved somewhat after that, he also struggled with heroin and cocaine addictions,[4][5] and was staying in a California drug rehabilitation facility when he died of a heart attack in August 1995 at the age of 53.[3][5] Birth name: Jerome John GarciaBornAugust 1, 1942

His mother’s ancestors were Irish and Swedish.[7] He was born in the Excelsior District of San Francisco, California, on August 1, 1942, to Jose Ramon “Joe” Garcia and Ruth Marie “Bobbie” (née Clifford) Garcia,[8][9][10] who was herself born in San Francisco.[7] His parents named him after composer Jerome Kern.[8][11][12] Jerome John was their second child, preceded by Clifford Ramon “Tiff”, who was born in 1937.[13][14] Shortly before Clifford’s birth, their father and a partner leased a building in downtown San Francisco and turned it into a bar, partly in response to Jose being blackballed from a musicians’ union for moonlighting.[15]
Garcia was influenced by music at an early age,[16] taking piano lessons for much of his childhood.[17] His father was a retired professional musician and his mother enjoyed playing the piano.[8] His father’s extended family—who had emigrated from Spain in 1919—would often sing during reunions..

My friend Phil Lerza (in KFRC T-Shirt) Chief Engineer CBS Radio – R.I.P. Phil! – here at Radio Day by The Bay at KRE / California Historical Radio Society – Jon Hammond

*Excellent remembrance of Phil written by Gerry Cagle on his Blog “Commentaries, Musings and More”:
http://www.gerrycagle.com/2012/04/17/pot-it-up/
Pot It Up!

Radio lost a great talent this week. I lost a friend.

In an industry where engineers are nameless, faceless souls who, for the most part, never “got it,” Phil Lerza was a superstar. Programmers who couldn’t tell you who their own engineer was knew all about Phil. Lerza was the superstar who perfected the KFRC sound. And what a sound. Envied by programmers across the country, many tried, but none succeeded in duplicating the sound of the Big 610. In short, Phil Lerza “Got it.”

Unless you worked at KFRC, you have no idea how perfect the radio station was. The industry measured how many hours stations were off the air during any given year. KFRC measure that time in seconds. Quite simply, KFRC was never off the air. Duplicate control rooms, backup music carts, generators, compressors and all sorts of whistles and bells were just a part of the process. In the cocoon of the control room, you were wrapped in perfection. It just didn’t get any better…*cont..

Donald’s Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Bailey_(musician)
Donald “Duck” Bailey is an American jazz drummer.
He is probably best known as the drummer in the trio of jazz organist Jimmy Smith from 1956 to 1964 and also for his work with The Three Sounds on Blue Note Records.[1] Bailey also worked as a sideman for some of the most famous musicians in jazz including Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Hampton Hawes, Sonny Rollins, and Red Mitchell. He also played with John Coltrane in their early Philadelphia years. Bailey is also known as “The King of Organ Trio Drummers”. In 1978, Bailey released a harmonica album called “So In Love” (Trio Records) in Japan which received rave reviews. His latest project “Blueprints of Jazz Vol.3 featuring Donald Bailey” was issued on the Talking House record label in 2009. Bailey continues to perform around the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States

*Nice article by Alex Walsh in the Local Six News about Terry – Posted on Tue, Oct 13, 2009 by AFM6
The Legacy Series: TERRY HILLIARD, Bass
“I Just Want To Play.”
by Alex Walsh
Terry Hilliard says he just wants to play his bass. He doesn’t want to be a bandleader; he doesn’t want to put together projects; he just wants to play.

Terry was born in Aurora, Illinois in 1936. A lifelong musician, and a life member of Local 6, Terry made his name in the 1960s with his influential performances on the Cal Tjader “Soul Sauce” and “Soul Bird” albums.

Growing up, there was always music in his house. His mother was a piano teacher, and his father loved jazz. When Terry was two years old, his father, who worked for the Sante Fe Railroad, was transferred to the West Coast. The family settled in Berkeley

Nice job on the live sound mix Carl! Sounded really great in the house – Jon Hammond

Jon Hammond with the great Theodore Bikel –
some lady was trying to crowd in to my photo, anyway it was
nice of Mr. Bikel to pose for the photo with me after a long show – JH
Theodore’s Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodore_Bikel
Theodore Bikel
Born Theodore Meir Bikel
May 2, 1924 (age 88)
Vienna, Austria
Occupation Film, television actor
Years active 1946-present
Spouse(s) Ofra Ichilov (1942-43; divorced)
Rita Weinberg Call (1967-2008; divorced; 2 children)
Tamara Brooks (2008-2012; her death)
Theodore Meir Bikel (born May 2, 1924) is a character actor, folk singer and musician. He made his film debut in The African Queen (1951) and was nominated for an Academy award for his supporting role as Sheriff Max Muller in The Defiant Ones (1958).
Bikel is President of the Associated Actors and Artistes of America and was president of Actors’ Equity in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors of Meretz USA,[2] where he also lectures. His autobiography, Theo, was published in 1995.
Bikel was born in Vienna, Austria, the son of Miriam (née Riegler) and Josef Bikel from Bukovina.[3] Being active in Zionism, his father named him after Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism. Following the Nazi occupation of Austria, Bikel’s family fled to Palestine, where his father’s contacts helped the family obtain British passports.[4]
Bikel started acting while in his teens. He co-founded the Cameri Theatre there—which has gone on to become one of Israel’s biggest theaters—before he moved to London to attend the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1945.[5] In 1948, Michael Redgrave recommended Bikel to his friend Laurence Olivier as understudy for the parts of both Stanley Kowalski and Mitch in the West End premiere of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire.[6] Bikel graduated from understudy to star opposite the director’s wife, Vivien Leigh, who would go on to recreate her role as Blanche DuBois in the film version opposite Marlon Brando.
Bikel was the President of the Actors’ Equity Association, in which office he supported human rights. At the 1977 AFL–CIO Convention, Bikel (right) welcomed the Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky (center) upon his release from the Soviet Union. Tom Kahn (left) was an assistant to AFL–CIO President George Meany
After several plays and films in Europe, Bikel moved to the United States in 1954, and became a naturalized citizen in 1961. He was the U-boat first officer to Curt Jürgens in The Enemy Below (1957) and played the captain of the Russian submarine in The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming (1966). He also portrayed the sadistic General Jouvet in The Pride and the Passion (1957) Bikel was screentested for the role of Auric Goldfinger in the James Bond film Goldfinger (1964). The screentest can be seen on the “Ultimate Edition” DVD released in 2006. Bikel also appeared in Frank Zappa’s 1971 film 200 Motels.
On Broadway he originated the role of Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music in 1959, for which he received his second Tony nomination. Bikel did not like his role in “Sound of Music” because his ability to sing was limited in the play, and he did not like to perform repeatedly the same role of the Captain. In 1964, he played Zoltan Karpathy, the dialect expert, in the film version of My Fair Lady. Since his first appearance as Tevye in the musical Fiddler on the Roof in 1967, Bikel has performed the role more often than any other actor (more than 2,000 times to date). When an injury required 74-year-old fellow Israeli performer Chaim Topol (veteran of many productions of the stage show and star of the motion picture of Fiddler on the Roof) to withdraw from a high-budget, much-promoted 2009 North American tour of the musical, Bikel substituted for him in several Canadian appearances, including Calgary in January 2010, and had scheduled appearances in the musical beyond his 86th birthday in May of that year.[7]
In the 1950s, Bikel produced and sang in several albums of Jewish folk songs, as well as Songs of a Russian Gypsy, in 1958. He was a co-founder of the Newport Folk Festival (together with Pete Seeger and George Wein) in 1959. In 1962, he heard Bob Dylan give his premiere performance of “Blowin’ in the Wind”. Bikel then went to his scheduled performance and became the first singer besides Dylan to perform the song in public. Bikel (with business partner Herb Cohen) opened the first folk music coffeehouse in Los Angeles, The Unicorn. Its popularity led to the two opening a second club, Cosmo Alley, which in addition to folk music presented poets such as Maya Angelou and comics including Lenny Bruce. Bikel became increasingly involved with civil rights issues and progressive causes, and was a delegate to the 1968 Democratic Convention.[8]
In addition to scores of appearances on film and on the stage, Bikel was a guest star on many popular television shows. He appeared in an episode of the 1954 NBC legal drama Justice based on cases from the Legal Aid Society of New York.[9] He also appeared in the episode entitled “The Faithful Pilgrimage” of CBS’s Appointment with Adventure anthology series. The particular episode was written by Rod Serling. He also appeared in a second episode of Appointment with Adventure entitled “Return of the Stranger.”
Later, Bikel guest starred on Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone (episode “Four O’Clock” as Oliver Crangle). He appeared on episodes of Wagon Train, Hawaii Five-O, Columbo, Charlie’s Angels, Cannon, Little House on the Prairie, Mission: Impossible, Gunsmoke, Dynasty, All in the Family, Knight Rider, and Law & Order. He appeared on the game show Super Password as a celebrity guest in 1988.
In the early 1990s, he appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation, in the episode “Family”, playing Sergey Rozhenko, the Russian-born adoptive father of Worf, who, as a petty officer on the Starfleet vessel Intrepid, had found Worf at the site of the Khitomer Massacre and taken him home to raise as his son. Bikel performed two roles in the Babylon 5 universe. In 1994, he portrayed Rabbi Koslov in the first season episode “TKO”. In 1998, he appeared in the TV movie Babylon 5: In the Beginning as Anla’Shok leader Lenonn.
In February of 2012, Bikel played the title role in Visiting Mr. Green with the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company in Toronto, Ontario.
[edit]Actors’ unions and charities: Leadership

Bikel is president of the Associated Actors and Artistes of America. He was president of Actors’ Equity in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in which office he supported human rights. At the 1977 AFL–CIO Convention, Bikel welcomed the Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky upon his release from the Soviet Union.[1] U.S. President Jimmy Carter appointed him to serve on the National Council for the Arts in 1977 for a six-year term.[citation needed] In 1962 he co-founded Actors Federal Credit Union.
On January 28, 2007, he agreed to serve as chair of the Board of Directors of Meretz USA, where he also lectures.
His autobiography, Theo, was published in 1995 by Harper Collins, and re-issued in an updated version by the University of Wisconsin Press in 2002. He is a member of the High IQ collective Mensa International.[10]

Bikel married his third wife, conductor Tamara Brooks (1941-2012), in 2008.

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.”

Joe Morello His NAMM Oral History was completed on June 8, 2007
http://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/joe-morello
Joe Morello’s influential drumming style was showcased on the landmark Dave Brubeck recording of “Take Five.” Ever since, he has inspired generations of performers. Joe became an icon in the music product’s industry through his long associations with manufacturers as an endorsee, music retailers as a clinician, and publishers as an author of successful method books. He gave advice and lessons to all who ask, and was often known to be the last to leave a clinic – ensuring all questions have been
answered.

Joe Morello the legendary Jazz Drummer July 17, 1928 – March 12, 2011
Instead of hearing aids, he had a lady who would repeat everything in to his ear – Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Morello

Joseph Albert Morello (July 17, 1928 – March 12, 2011) was a jazz drummer best known for his 12½-year stint with The Dave Brubeck Quartet. He was frequently noted for playing in the unusual time signatures employed by that group in such pieces as “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo à la Turk”. Popular for its work on college campuses during the 1950s, Brubeck’s group reached new heights with Morello. In June 1959, Morello participated in a recording session with the quartet — completed by the alto saxophonist Paul Desmond and the bassist Eugene Wright — that yielded “Kathy’s Waltz” and “Three to Get Ready,” both of which intermingled 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures
Morello suffered from partial vision from birth,[3] and devoted himself to indoor activities. At six years old he began studying the violin, going on to feature three years later as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, and again three years later.
At the age of 15 Morello met the violinist Jascha Heifetz and decided that he would never be able to equal Heifetz’s “sound”, so switched to drumming, first studying with a show drummer named Joe Sefcik and then George Lawrence Stone, author of the noted drum textbook Stick Control for the Snare Drummer. Stone was so impressed with Morello’s ideas that he incorporated them into his next book, Accents & Rebounds, which is dedicated to Morello. Later, Morello studied with Radio City Music Hall percussionist Billy Gladstone.
After moving to New York City, Morello worked with numerous notable jazz musicians including Johnny Smith, Tal Farlow, Stan Kenton, Phil Woods, Sal Salvador, Marian McPartland, Jay McShann, Art Pepper, Howard McGhee, and others. After a period playing in McPartland’s trio, Morello declined invitations to join both Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey’s bands, favoring a temporary two-month tour with the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1955; Morello remained with Brubeck for well over a decade, only departing in 1968. Morello later became an in-demand clinician, teacher and bandleader whose former students include Danny Gottlieb, Max Weinberg, Rich Galichon, Phish drummer Jon Fishman, Gary Feldman, Patrick Wante, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons drummer Gerry Polci, Jerry Granelli, and Glenn Johnson.

Oral History, Joe Morello explains how he became a member of The Dave Brubeck Quartet. interview date June 8, 2007, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Oral History Library
Morello appeared in many Brubeck performances and contributed to over 60 albums with Brubeck. On “Take Five”, he plays an imaginative drum solo maintaining the 5/4 time signature throughout. Another example of soloing in odd time signatures can be heard on “Unsquare Dance”, in which he solos using only sticks without drums in 7/4 time. At the end of the track, he can be heard laughing about the “trick” ending. He also features on “Blue Rondo à la Turk”, “Strange Meadow Lark”, and “Pick-Up Sticks”.
During his career, Morello appeared on over 120 albums, 60 of which were with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. He authored several drum books, including Master Studies, published by Modern Drummer Publications, and also made instructional videos. Morello was the recipient of many awards, including Playboy magazine’s best drummer award for seven years in a row, and Down Beat magazine’s best drummer award five years in a row. He was elected to the Modern Drummer magazine Hall of Fame in 1988, the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame in 1993, and was the recipient of Hudson Music’s first TIP (Teacher Integration Program) Lifetime Achievement award in June, 2010.[4]
Joe Morello died on March 12, 2011, at his home in Irvington, New Jersey. He was 82 years old. His death was announced on his website, although no cause of death was given — with Joe Morello

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melvin_Sparks
Melvin Sparks (March 22, 1946 – March 15, 2011)[1] was an American soul jazz, hard bop and jazz blues guitarist. He recorded a number of albums for Prestige Records, later recording for Savant Records. He appeared on several recordings with musicians including Lou Donaldson, Sonny Stitt, Leon Spencer and Johnny Hammond Smith.[1]
Sparks was born in Houston, Texas, United States, and raised in a musical family. He received his first guitar at age 11. Sparks began working in the rhythm and blues genre as a high school student, first with Hank Ballard and the Midnighters, and then with the Upsetters, a touring band formed by Little Richard, which also backed Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye.[2]
Sparks moved to New York City and worked as a session musician for Blue Note and Prestige Records. As part of the burgeoning soul-jazz scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Sparks often backed organists like Jack McDuff, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Charles Earland. Sparks released his debut album, Sparks!, for Prestige in 1970.[2]
He was seen on Northeastern television commercials as the voice of Price Chopper’s House of BBQ advertising campaign.[3]
Sparks died on March 15, 2011, at age 64, at his home in Mount Vernon, New York. He had diabetes and high blood pressure. — with Melvin Sparks

Drummer, Bandleader, NEA Jazz Master Award Recipient CHICO HAMILTON on HammondCast KYOU Radio, excerpted from interview by Jon Hammond, organist and host of HammondCast

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chico_Hamilton

Chico Hamilton (born Foreststorn Hamilton, September 20, 1921), is an American jazz drummer and bandleader.

Hamilton was born in Los Angeles, California. He had a fast-track musical education in a band with Charles Mingus, Illinois Jacquet, Ernie Royal, Dexter Gordon, Buddy Collette and Jack Kelso. Engagements with Lionel Hampton, Slim & Slam, T-Bone Walker, Lester Young, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charlie Barnet, Billy Eckstine, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Billie Holiday, Gerry Mulligan and six years with Lena Horne established him as a jazz drummer,[1] and he struck out on his own as a bandleader in 1955.
Hamilton appeared in the March Milastaire number in the film You’ll Never Get Rich (1941) as part of the backing group supporting Fred Astaire, and performed on the soundtrack of the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope film Road to Bali.
He recorded his first album as leader in 1955 with George Duvivier (double-bass) and Howard Roberts (jazz guitar) for Pacific Jazz. In same year Hamilton formed an unusual quintet in L.A. featuring cello, flute, guitar, bass and drums.[2] The quintet has been described as one of the last important West Coast Jazz bands.[1] The original personnel included flutist Buddy Collette, guitarist Jim Hall, cellist Fred Katz and bassist Jim Aton, who was later replaced by Carson Smith. Hamilton continued to tour using different personnel, from 1957 to 1960. The group including flutist Paul Horn and John Pisano was featured in the film Sweet Smell of Success in 1957. The same group, this time including Nate Gershman and Eric Dolphy appeared in the film Jazz on a Summer’s Day in 1960. He marked his first recordings with Eric Dolphy on With Strings Attached, Gongs East, The Three Faces of Chico, and That Hamilton Man.

In March 2011, with his 90th birthday six months off, Hamilton trekked out of his New York City penthouse apartment to helm a marathon recording session resulting in 28 new tracks with his Euphoria group. No one woodsheds like a jazz drummer, and coming off a health setback during the Summer of 2010, Hamilton and his Euphoria group began sheding at weekly rehearsals at Hamilton’s Penthouse A. These weekly rehearsals played an important part in Hamilton’s rehabilitation, facilitated Hamilton and his group becoming very tight with each other and exploring places musically they had not previously gone together, and brought together a wealth of new original material, offered up in three courses, each of which is a different viewpoint of Hamilton’s Revelation.

この日は何故なのかトリプルブッキング。プライベートで日本に立ち寄られたジョン・ハモンドさん、日本ツアーを終えて帰国前の敦賀明子さん。そして、これもまた関西からの帰路に立ち寄られた田中光栄さん。何の脈絡もなく集まった3人にアフターファイブコンサートをお願いしてしまったのはスズキ楽器貿易の北米担当者だった。



ジョン・ハモンドさんはショービジネスの表舞台に出てくることは少ないが、フランクフルトメッセでは25年、ナムショーでもレギュラーのように演奏されているエンドーサーである。今回も鈴木会長に唯会いたいという一念で来日された律儀なお人柄です。



派手さこそないがベーシックな彼のオルガンプレイは聴く人に安心感を与えてくれます。セラピストの術中に入っていくかのように、仕事を終えた従業員たちの心を癒してくれました。

JON HAMMOND Jazz Man

Jon Hammond’s story is one of survival. Survival as a jazz musician, survival as a Manhattanite. The organist-accordionist has survived because of perseverance, love of his art, tremendous humor, and gratitude. His new independently produced and marketed CD, HAMMOND’S BOLERO, which contains only music written by Hammond, is both a statement and a tribute. As his CD notes begin, “This record marks a new beginning for me, and I would like to dedicate it to all those who, like myself, are striking out on their own and going it alone. Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. I did and now this record is for you!” Following his dream at times has not been easy.

Take his living situation. Hammond is fairly new to Manhattan Plaza—a resident for just two years—and like everything else involving this multitalented man, there’s an interesting story attached. “I’m living under a lucky star after years of putting up with all kinds of adverse conditions. Manhattan Plaza has been a great, great help for me.” Living in the Clinton area, Hammond survived six ceiling collapses in his apartment and was finally driven out by sick building syndrome, i.e. poisonous mold in the walls. He realized it only after watching an epsode of 60 MINUTES. Did he sue? “No,” he says. “Put it this way—the title song for my TV show is called ‘Late Rent.’ I used to pay my landlord partial payments, etc. so I never sued.”

As a further testament to his Manhattan survival, Hammond is a nineteen-year-veteran of cable access with his own television show, aptly titled THE JON HAMMOND SHOW. Manhattan Plaza residents Todd Anderson (tenor sax) and Bill Warfield (trumpet) have been featured as part of the band. the show airs on Monday at 9:30 p.m. on channels 56 and 108 and various times on other channels. For more information, viewers can check Hammond’s website, http://community.webtv.net/laterent/JONHAMMOND

Jon Hammond Band

But before the glamour of Manhattan, CD’s, opening for Bonnie Raitt, and some other high-class gigs, Hammond paid his dues. Attending the Berklee college of Music in Boston in 1973, he earned money on the wild side. “I used to play in these Mafia striptease clubs seven nights a week. Boy, that was the end of an era. I was working for the Venus brothers, notorious gangsters, and I was the house organist at the infamous 2 O’Clock Lounge, the Mousetrap Lounge, The Hungry I—all these clubs that were in what was known as the Combat Zone in Boston.”

And how did he get to New York? “Well, I knew a stripper named Didi Bangbang, a really nice girl. She knew I had a van. When you have a van, you get some interesting calls. She had a show at this burlesque club in New York so she said, ‘Drive me and I’ll introduce you to New York.’ This was in 1975. She had wild props, like a plexiglass round platform with disco lights inside of it. We loaded everything in this army green van and drove to New York.”

From New York, Hammond went on the road with a show band called Easy Living “It was one of the top show bands—this was before disco—and you’d get on the different circuits. We were in the $10,000-a-week bracket.”

Just one problem. “I get the call for a really great gig, but it’s always at the end. When you see me show up, it’s a doomsday situation. The band toured for six months. We were in Toronto working at the Four Seasons Inn on the Park, one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever been in in my life. I was living like a king. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Well, they had installed a DJ booth—the first place we ever played with one installed. He played on our breaks. They would cross-fade, meaning we would re-enter playing the music he had been playing. But I could see the handwriting on the wall. The disco thing had not really come in and taken over yet—the very first tune that was a big disco hit was “The Hustle.” “We had to do it with the band. That tune was like the death knell. Disco came in and the bands went out.”

A musician’s life involves a lot of travel, and that Hammond has done—back and forth throughout North America, from New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Cape Cod, and Toronto. “Around 1977, I ended up in Boston again. There I heard through the grapevine that Lou Colombo, the trumpet player, was looking for an organist for a private harbor club in Harwichport, Massachussets. Another great job. One of the members was Tip O’Neil, who became Speaker of the House, and I played all of his private parties. He was always very nice. That lasted for two years and then they reduced the nights.”

In September 1981, Hammond fulfilled his dream of a lifetime—traveling to Paris on the Concorde. “I lived it out exactly as I saw it in my dream.” Hammond recalls. “I had a haircut. I bought a dark blue suit. I bought a case that I still travel with today. Every man was wearing the same suit I was. As soon as the plane took off, I realized I was leaving the continent for the first time and I got very emotional.”

Hammond stayed in Paris “as long as I could. I wrote music there. It was more than I hoped it would be. I swore I’d come back to live. I ended up in Europe for six years, actually in Frankfurt, going back and forth to the States, from 1991 to 1997.” For being a consultant on the design, Suzuki gave him an XB-2 Hammond organ, which was a big help to him.

A career change occurred when he and his band were hired to play at the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. “I went on a TV show to promote it,” he recalls, “Later on, I took a cab to the club and there was a huge commotion outside. I thought it was due to a group playing an earlier set. I said to the cab driver, ‘Gee, I hope they finish soon.’ the driver said, “They’re waiting for you.;” Though Hammond did very well in Europe, including a concert on Radio France, a trade war soon found american jazz musicians being cut out of European work. “I came home on Pakistan Airlines” the former Concorde passenger remembers. Hammond is used to the roller coaster ride of the musician—one day on tour with Percy Sledge, the next day coming home from France with $50.

Hammond recently returned from successful concerts in Germany at the International Trade show “Musikmesse” for the seventeenth consecutive year with his co-producer Joe Berger, of Ham-Berger-Friz Records, the producer of the CD. You got it. Hamburger/fries. Hammond’s CD is currently getting radio play in Germany and National Public Radio stations in the U.S. Several manhattan Plaza residents are involved in the CD. On April 28, he had a launch party at Le Bar Bat.

Though only occasionally veering outside of the music world, Hammond did something unusual in 2001. “My mother called me and said, ‘Jon, they’re hiring at United Airlines.’ I thought, what can it hurt to please my mother, I”ll apply. I did get an offer but I was unable to take it because it involved transporting luggage, and I couldn’t do it because of my bad back. However, they then found out that I speak German. I was offered a better job in International. Now guess when I was supposed to start training? October 2001. Well, you know what happened to the airlines after 9/11, and you know what I said about getting a gig at the death knell. So this told me one thing, I’m supposed to be a musician.” He’s right.

Miracle on 42nd Street Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-0A56IC6uM

MIRACLE ON 42ND STREET is a feature length documentary about the unique apartment complex called Manhattan Plaza located in Manhattan’s historic theatre district, a neighborhood also known as Hell’s Kitchen. Located on the block between 42nd and 43rd Streets, it is often called the “Miracle on 42nd Street” due to the near-miraculous effect the complex has had on the once-blighted neighborhood and on the lives of its residents. Seventy percent of the occupants work in the performing arts and thirty percent are Hell’s Kitchen residents who are elderly, disabled or have been relocated from substandard housing. The film tells the story of how this innovative affordable housing experiment came to be, the artists it has nurtured, the close community its residents and management have created and the positive impact it has had on the economy of Manhattan’s West Side. The filmmakers, several of whom are current and former residents, are passionate about sharing the story of Manhattan Plaza with the world. It is a unique model of what can be achieved by bringing together over 3,500 people from differing cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds. The film is intended for festival release and to air on television. We hope that by making this film, the example of Manhattan Plaza will inspire new ways of thinking about affordable housing in cities around the globe. We believe that Manhattan Plaza’s success was brought about by the creative community it housed, people whose dreams and goals might not have been realized had it not been for the opportunity of living in Manhattan Plaza. People like Broadway composer Alan Menken, Terrence Howard, Alicia Keys, Tennessee Williams, Marin Alsop (groundbreaking female orchestra conductor), Dexter Gordon, Larry David, Charles Mingus, Mickey Rourke, Andrea McArdle (Broadway’s first Annie) and Sandy, her dog. Samuel L. Jackson worked there as a security guard in his first and only non-acting job.

Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond

Filmed in Hammond-Showroom Karlstrasse 38
D-89129 Langenau Germany on April 19th 2011
“Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond”
First look at this exciting new keyboard product weighing in at 7 kilos, just over 15 lbs., it sounds like a real Hammond B3 organ with Leslie, or a full size grand piano, any type of famous vintage electric piano or synthesizer. This keyboard does it all and with original Hammond drawbars and it’s feather light. Sk1 has a built in USB flash drive input, the keys are ‘bullet proof’ waterfall style keys that can hold up to extreme pressure of rockin’ rock musicians, swinging jazz musicians and can even sound like a huge pipe organ. This film will blow your mind.
