MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME
http://www.journal-frankfurt.de/journal_news/Kultur-9/My-home-away-from-home-Jon-Hammond-zum-27-Mal-auf-der-Musikmesse-18308.html?src=funkyjazz&id&rewrite_titel
Jon Hammond zum 27. Mal auf der Musikmesse
Nomen est omen. Der Mann heißt Hammond und spielt eine Hammond. Der Organist aus New York freut sich auf Frankfurt und lädt zur Musikmesse Warm Up Party am 9.4. in den Jazzkeller ein.
JOURNAL FRANKFURT: Was war für Sie zuerst da – die Frankfurter Musikmesse oder Auftritte im Jazzkeller?
Jon Hammond: Die Musikmesse. Ich kam 1987 zum ersten Mal nach Frankfurt, zusammen mit Joe Berger, der auf der Messe für Engl Amplifiers spielte. Wir flogen mit der Lufthansa ein und teilten uns ein Zimmer im berühmten Prinz Otto Hotel am Hauptbahnhof. Schon in der ersten Nacht stellte mir Joe den großen John Entwistle, den Bassisten von The Who vor. Es wurde eine lange Nacht, in der wir Cognac tranken und Erdnüsse knabberten in eiern Suite des Marriott Hotels. Ich habe Joe bei einer Session mit John und Ringo Starrs Sohn Zak Starkey im Dorian Grey Club gefilmt bei einer Soundcheck Party. In den ersten paar Jahren spielte ich nicht oft live weil ich noch keine transportierbare Hammond Orgel hatte vor 1991 als ich den Prototyp einer XB-2 Hammond Orgel bekam mit der ich dann um die Welt reiste. Hauptsächliche dokumenierte ich aber die Messe für meine Cable TV Show in New York, die inzwischen im 29. Jahr als The Jon Hammond Show — Music, Travel and Soft News präsentiert. Die harten Nachrichten überlasse ich CNN und den großen Networks (lacht). Vom ersten Jahr an fühlten wir uns der Musikmesse eng verbunden, haben seitdem eine tolle Zeit hier, kommen jedes Jahr wieder bis wir kleine, alte Männer sind.

Das Jazzkeller-Konzert am Vorabend der Musikmesse ist zu einer netten Tradition geworden – wie kam es dazu, was bedeutet es Ihnen und wir werden Sie dieses Jahr diesen Abend im Jazzkeller zelebrieren?
Ab 1991 lernte ich mehr und mehr Musikmesse-Menschen kennen und die mich und auch einiges von meiner Musik. Einige von ihnen ermunterten mich, doch auch für Auftritte nach Deutschland zu kommen weil es hier doch ein Interesse an Hammond-Orgel-Groove-Music gab. Mit der schon erwähnten, kleinen, kompakten aber sehr kraftvollen Orgel war das alles möglich. Zudem machte ich in New York gerade eine schwere Zeit durch, mein Vater war gestorben und ich hatte das Gefühl, einige Veränderungen könnten meinem Leben gut tun. Also kam ich nach Frankfurt mit meiner XB-2, allerdings mit einem Rückflugticket falls etwas schief gehen würde. Ich rief viele Musiker an, ließ sie wissen, ich bin jetzt da, lasst uns zusammen spielen. Das war für mich der Anfang einer langen, sehr speziellen Beziehung, vor allem zum Frankfurter Publikum nach ersten kleinen erfolgen im Jazzkeller und einer kurzen Auftritt im Hessen Report im Fernsehen. Beatrix Rief verdanke ich dieses “lucky light on me”, eine tolle Erfahrung. Seitdem nenne ich Frankfurt “My Good Luck City” und im Jazzkeller begann auch alles für mich als Musiker. Deshalb liegt mir der Club auch so nah am Herzen, deshalb hatte ich auch die Idee, meine “Musikmesse Warm Up Party” dort zu realisieren, immer in der Nacht bevor die Messe startet was zu einer schönen Tradition wurde. Im ersten Jahr, in dem ich dann auch ein wenig Sponsoring von Philip Morris bekam, konnte ich damit einige Flugtickets für befreundete Musik bezahlen. Darüber war ich sehr glücklich. Dabei rauche ich selbst gar nicht.

Wie würden Sie Ihr persönliches Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Frankfurt beschrieben?
Lassen Sie es mich so sagen: ich liebe Frankfurt und die Frankfurter waren immer gut zu mir in all den Jahren. Ich könnte ein ganzes Buch über die Zeit schreiben, in der ich in Bornheim wohnte und Nacht für Nacht in der alten Jazzkneipe in der Berliner Straße auftrat. Das war der Treffpunkt, wo auch die Musiker der HR Bigband hinkamen und es gab eine generöse Chefin in der kleinen Kneipe. Auch Regine Dobberschütz und Eugen Hahn im Jazzkeller waren wahre Jazzengel für mich, die mir so vieles ermöglichten in der Zeit. Wir konnten auch in den Studios von AFN Radio spielen, waren die einzigen Musiker, die das – mit einer Sondergenehmigung des US Militärs – durften. Für ein wenig Promotion für die Musikmesse. Wir nannten das Programm für die AFN “Profile TV “-Show “Sound Police”. Wir hatten viel Spaß. Kein Wunder also, dass ich Frankfurt als my home away from home begreife und ich mich jedes Mal wieder freue zur Musikmesse zu reisen, in diesem Jahr übrigens zum 27. Mal in Folge. Und ich bin diesmal besonders aufgeregt, heim nach Frankfurt zu kommen weil ich gerade 60 Jahre alt geworden bin.

Wer wird in diesem Jahr zum Gelingen des Konzertes mit teils komponierter, teils improvisierter Musik, so nehme ich an, beitragen und was für einen Sound wird die Band präsentieren?
Ich habe etwa 90% der Kompositionen geschrieben, die wir spielen werden. Es ist die Musik, die man auch in meiner New Yorker TV-Show hören kann und die mich mehrmals um die Welt getragen hat. Meinen Stil nenne ich “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues” und featurert die ganz wunderbaren Solisten in meine Band: Tony Lakatos, den großen ungarischen Tenorsaxophonisten, der auch Mitglied in der hr Bigband ist, dann meinen alten Freund Giovanni Gulino, diesen tollen Schlagzeuger, der schon für fast alle Großen der Szene getrommelt hat. Ich liebe diese Jungs. Als Gitarrist ist mein alten Freund und Kollege Joe Berger dabei, den man auch als The Berger-Meister kennt. Auf diese Formation bin ich wirklich stolz.

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).

Anaheim California — Jon Hammond and main man Joe Lamond –
Joe Lamond has been president and CEO of NAMM Since 2001,
http://www.namm.org/board-members/joe-lamond
National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global not-for-profit 501(c)(6) trade association representing 9,000 manufacturers and retailers of musical instruments and sound products.

NAMM’s mission is to strengthen the music pr
oducts industry and promote the pleasures and benefits of making music. Lamond has led the team of dedicated NAMM employees towards accomplishing its mission by producing trade shows including its annual ‘NAMM Show,’ the world’s largest trade-only event for the music products industry; and then reinvesting the proceeds into grants, scholarships, industry promotions, public and government relations programs designed to increase active music making and strengthen music education in our schools. These efforts have increased consumer demand for NAMM Member products and services, positively impacted industry sales and ultimately grown the size and popularity of the NAMM Show.

Lamond has dedicated himself to the cause of music education as a fundamental right for all children and led NAMM’s efforts to increase funding and support for music education including the creation of the Support Music Coalition, funding of music brain research and lobbying for education reform. He has also been a staunch supporter of the role of the community music store, the backbone of NAMM’s membership. With the rapid transformation of retail through advances in technology, the Internet and social networking, Lamond has directed NAMM University’s efforts to strengthen the role of the local community music store as a vital resource for consumers when buying and learning to play a musical instrument.

Under Lamond’s leadership, NAMM created NAMM International, LLC to better serve its growing global membership; partnering on the Music China trade show in Shanghai and collaborating with Messe Frankfurt to launch the NAMM Musikmesse Russia trade show in Moscow. Lamond directed the formation of an International Coalition, which now includes representatives from 20 of the world’s largest markets to share industry best practices and support global music education for all children. He also led NAMM to create the NAMM Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to serve as the philanthropic arm of the association and to raise funds to support NAMM’s mission. Over the past 10 years, NAMM and the NAMM Foundation have reinvested nearly $80 million dollars in support of its mission and to promote music making for people of all ages.

Lamond has traveled extensively throughout the United States and to more than 40 countries promoting NAMM’s mission and the importance of music education. Speaking at conferences, in front of government leaders and education policy experts, Lamond has made a strong case for the proven benefits of music making throughout the lifespan and for increasing attention on the power of music and the arts as tools of creativity and innovation, health and wellness and cultural diplomacy to resolve conflict and bring people and countries closer together.

Editorial Reviews
Wonderful live recording of Hammond Organ with drums.This classic organ club format was at its zenith in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Live at Bernies captures this unique feel and sound, with
the internationally recognized hands of Jon Hammond and Michael Jordan providing expert renditions of many classic favorites. This crystal clear live recording sounds like you have an Organ Lounge in your living room! The performances are excellent and Jon displays his great experience and demonstrates the capabilities of the Digital New B3. The natural live feel is very refreshing.

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

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,

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,

“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.
