HammondCast 18 from NYC tells the story of how Jon Hammond originally met Joe Berger (of Ham-Berger-Friz Records) and then plays a recording of one of the first jam sessions from year 1986 in BackBeat Productions’ Studios in the Music Building in New York-251 W. 30th St., from a previous phoner with Pete Fallico.
From there we go in to the studio with Chris Cortez and tell some interesting stories going all the way back to 1957 when Jon came out to Berkeley California from Chicago on the California Zephyr and somehow ended up in Boston’s Combat Zone playing Hammond organ nightly for the burlesque shows in the World Famous 2 o’clock Lounge! From there he tells the true story about “Late Rent” Jon’s theme song which was paid for with the rent money!
Jon Hammond is an ASCAP Composer/Publisher and member of Local 802 & Local 6 Musicians Union. Special thanks to KYOU Radio, 1550 on the AM dial in San Francisco California!

The Messeturm building in Frankfurt – as seen from a high floor in Marriott Hotel on a cold winter day – Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messeturm
The Messeturm (English: Trade Fair Tower) is a 63-storey, 257 m (843 ft) skyscraper in the Westend-Süd district of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is the second tallest building in Frankfurt am Main, the second tallest building in Germany and th
e third tallest building in the European Union. It had been the tallest building in Europe from its completion in 1991 until 1997 when it was surpassed by the Commerzbank Tower, which is also located in Frankfurt.
The Messeturm is directly located near the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds. Helmut Jahn designed the Messeturm in a Postmodern architectural style. Despite its name, the Messeturm is not used for trade fair exhibitions but as an office building.
The Messeturm is similar in design to towers by other architects including the Bank of America Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia and Key Tower (1991) in Cleveland, Ohio. Frankfurters often call it Bleistift (“pencil”) due to its shape. The construction of the building’s foundation set a world record for the longest continuous concrete pour. Ninety trucks poured concrete for 78 hours into the 6-metre (20 ft) deep foundation. Its ground floor area is just 1,681 m2 (18,090 sq ft), and features a 36.3 m (119.1 ft) pyramid at the top.
The tower uses numerous geometric shapes in its design such as the square footprint which is the main shape used throughout the tower. It then rises to a cylindrical shape which finally completes in a pyramid.
It is one of the few buildings in Germany with their own postal code (60308), the others being Opernturm, another Frankfurt skyscraper, and the summit station on Zugspitze.
There are 900 parking places in a public parking garage and a direct connection to the subway.
The building also appears in the European tileset for the game SimCity 4, and a similar-looking building appears in SimCity 3000.

How to do a GREEN Music Tour by Jon Hammond

September 19, 2009




*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.

way to go green is to skip the tour bus altogether.

*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-

to tell you my way of doing a “green tour” that I

In 1991, I got the first really portable model. It

was one of the first 10 prototypes of the Ham-

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-
