This is one of the few times you’ll see Bernard Purdie playing Zildjian Cymbals – Jon Hammond Band gig at Cocodrie in North Beach San Francisco. The drum kit belongs to left-handed drummer Ronnie Smith Jr. who opened the show for us and turned the drums around for Bernard

October 9 1998 Jon Hammond brought legendary studio drummer Bernard Purdie ‘The Hit Maker’ back to San Francisco to play for the first time since the Live Aretha Franklin at Fillmore recordings in March of 1971. The concert went down in North Beach San Francisco at COCODRIE Club. Here they are playing a Jon Hammond Band original ‘Hip Hop Chitlins’ with an explosive and impromptu drum solo from Bernard that is pure Funk. On the band: Bennett Friedman tenor sax, Barry Finnerty guitar, Bernard Purdie drums, Jon Hammond organ & bass *Special thanks: Scott Rootenberg of Cocodrie. *More info: ©JH INTL

Frankfurt Germany — “Go Green” forget the tour bus, push your gear to the gig and ride the rails – Jon Hammond

*Note: Excerpt from article in April 2008 ALLEGRO Magazine of Local 802 Musicians Union in honor of Earth Day April 22 and Environmentalism “Beat On The Street”: I am about to go over to Germany for my annu- al music tour with my Hammond organ so I’d like to tell you my way of doing a “green tour” that I have perfected. In the past, a Hammond B3 organ weighed 425 pounds (without the Leslie speaker) so it was not possible for me to take one to Europe. In 1991, I got the first really portable model. It was one of the first 10 prototypes of the Ham- mond-Suzuki XB-2, with multi-voltage for any- where in the world. I flew over to Germany with it on Pakistan Airlines. I found that by using a Kart-A-Bag Super 600 heavy-duty luggage cart with “stair slides” (like what UPS and FedEx uses), I could hoist it up on to any train or bus. I traveled all over Europe this way, and was pic- tured doing it eventually in a magazine ad for Kart- A-Bag for quite a while. They had a contest going for a long time where they would give away one “Ham- mond Super 600 Kart-A-Bag” every month from a drawing. I jokingly refer to it as my “tour bus.” I see a lot of bands touring with big tour buses and they look real nice and comfy but they also burn a lot of fuel. With my technique I ride on the high speed trains in Germany, the local trains, up and down in the Metro of Paris and in Prague on the street cars. Jon Hammond *Photo: Organist and Local 802 member Jon Hammond with his touring rig waiting for a train in Germany. One way to go green is to skip the tour bus altogether. — at Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof
