HammondCast 17 and Breaking News from Jon Hammond

*LISTEN TO AUDIO: HERE HammondCast 17 and Breaking News from Jon Hammond

http://www.archive.org/details/HammondCast_17

HammondCast 17, just back from Hamburg Germany where I recorded my new album, an official production of NDR Radio in Studio 1 with some of my all-time favorite musicians: Lutz Buchner (Sax), Joe Gallardo (Trombone), Heinz Lichius (Drums), myself-Jon Hammond (XK-3 Organ/Bass) and Engineer: Rudy Grosser in Studio 1 NDR Radio. I’ll be playing some selections rough mixes (not so rough actually!) as my Christmas gift to the listeners, and speaking of Christmas…from inside San Francisco County Jail #8 “Pod E”, a live recording of my trio’s annual Christmas Prison Show with the great tenor saxophonist Larry Schneider & Ronnie Smith Jr. on drums along with myself on keys playing the Christmas classic: “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas”. Every year I tell the ladies “And ya’ better be good!”
And from the Studio 1 NDR Sessions my original blues shuffle: No X-Cess Baggage Blues, some fine playing by Lutz on one of my favorite ballads: My One and Only Love and my theme song: “Late Rent”. Special thanks to Knut Benzner of NDR Radio for co-producing these recordings now heard on KYOU Radio, 1550 on the AM Dial.

Jon Hammond’s Road Baggage: The GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case for Sk1 Hammond and Briggs & Riley Travelware

Jon Hammond says, protect your investment in Sk1 Hammond with the custom molded Polyethylene “Polyethylene glycol (PEG)” Flight Case product from Gator Cases

Recommendation from Jon Hammond The GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case for Sk1 Ultra-Portable Organ

Jon Hammond — When you travel with your instruments as much as I do, you want to have a solid protective flight case for your instrument,

for the new Hammond Sk1 ultra-portable combo organ I highly recommend the GKPE-49-TSA Flight Case from a company called Gator Cases.

The fit is nearly perfect, it locks in to place when you close the case and for extra insurance you can put a small additional piece of foam in the small gap:

*Listen Here:

HammondCast 16 KYOU Radio
This episode of HammondCast will feature Organ Shuffle Blues Grooves and is coming from Hamburg St. Pauli Germany just hours before going in to the famous Studio 1 of NDR Radio to record my new Jon Hammond Band album.
Recordings with drummers Bernard Purdie and Ronnie Smith Jr. on the band.
The first track was recorded live at Kimball’s East Club in Emeryville California in 1998. A fine example of Bernard Purdie’s “Purdie Shuffle” that he is known for with Hammond playing for a hometown crowd on a real B3 organ with spinning Leslie speakers. Also 2 blues shuffle tracks from Jon’s “Hammond’s Bolero” album: “F.P. Blues” and “Cannonball ’99…One More Time!” plus 2 public service announcements I did in Zurich Switzerland that are played at the end of the night to encourage patrons of dance clubs to take a taxi if they had too much to drink.
Jon Hammond is an organ player & accordion player member of Local 802 & Local 6 Musicians Union and ASCAP Composer/Publisher: JON HAMMOND International, Inc.
All music on HammondCast is original and instrumental. “The FINGERS…are the SINGERS!”
