Al Jazzbo Collins

Chris Cortez and Jon Hammond

This episode of HammondCast on KYOU 1550 AM Radio features some historic recordings of Jon Hammond with radio & tv legend AL “JAZZBEAUX” COLLINS, this will blow your socks off! Al does a complete recitation of his Hipster version of “Little Red Ridinghood” accompanied by Jon on the Hammond organ live. Also radio host CHRIS CORTEZ talking about how Jon and Jazzbeaux almost blew up the transmitter for the radio station by plugging the Hammond organ directly in as a late-night experiment on the Bay Area station…wooops! All worked out ok, but the Chief Engineer and Station Manager were a little bit upset the next day.
Going back even a few more years, Al Jazzbeaux breaks Jon’s recording of “Sidewinder” on the now defunct but legendary and most powerful station of New York City-WNEW 1130 AM. For Al Jazzbeaux Collins freaks, this HammondCast episode is a MUST.
Jon Hammond is a member of Local 802 & Local 6 Musicians Unions and an ASCAP Composer/Publisher-JON HAMMOND International, Inc.

21 years old – I found out my first day at Berklee College of Music in 1973 that I could not have accordion or Hammond organ as my principle instrument, I was sure mad about that! They sent me to the piano practice rooms with the broken out-of-tune Kawaii pianos with cigarette burns all over them, saxophone players playing scales on either side in the practice booths and drummers, it was nuts – Jon Hammond http://www.accordionradio.com/news.html — at Berklee College of Music

This is the Gretel & Alfons on the Große Freiheit 29, 22767 Hamburg where The Beatles hung out and drank beers back in the days when they were playing long nights at The Star Club just steps away. My friend Horst Jankowiak (R.I.P.) who was the owner told me that Paul McCartney returned there in 1989 and paid up their outstanding tab for beers leftover from 1961, and gave the house a pretty good tip as well. Very sad to hear that Horst has died, he had myself and Joe Berger sign in the house guest book on the next page over from where Jimi Hendrix had signed it – I met Lee Curtis there in Gretel & Alfons and Lee walked with me and showed me the place where Star Club had burnt down – Lee Curtis (from Liverpool) played The Star Club more than any other performer – quite a legacy there folks! Jon Hammond

Bei Gretel & Alfons stand Paul McCartney in der Kreide
Hier muss es gewesen sein, genau hier in diesem roten Backsteingebäude. Und richtig, eine goldene Tafel am Eingang konserviert das Ereignis in wenigen Zeilen: Am 17. 9. 1960 betraten die Beatles die Bühne des „Indra”. Es war ihr erstes Deutschland-Engagement und der Beginn einer großen Karriere. Wer sich hier in Hamburg-St. Pauli in der Straße „Große Freiheit” abseits der Reeperbahn umsieht und Ulf Krügers „Beatles-Guide Hamburg” dabei hat, erfährt mehr: Zum Beispiel, dass John, Paul und George damals noch ohne Ringo, dafür aber mit Schlagzeuger Pete Best und Bassist Stuart -Sut-cliffe spielten. Vier bis sechs Stunden die Nacht für 30 Mark pro Beatle. Dafür boten sie krächzigen Rock n Roll, doch den wollte kaum jemand hören.
Nach erledigtem Job und dem einen oder anderen „Absacker” in einer der zahlreichen Kiez-Bars mussten die Beatles auf dem Weg ins Bett die auch heute noch schmuddelige Große Freiheit bis ans Ende laufen und links abbiegen in die Paul-Roosen-Straße 33. Zwei fensterlose Räume mit Matratzen auf Metallgestellen mehr gabs nicht, erzählt der Beatles-Guide. Und dass für die Katzenwäsche ein Mini-Waschbecken auf der Herrentoilette des „Bambi-Kinos” zur Verfügung stand.

Heute erinnert hier nur noch eine vergilbte Tafel mit vier verblichenen Beatles-Fotos und ein lieblos gestaltetes Schaufenster an diese erste „Suite” der Fab Four. Schade, denn in dieser efeuumrankten Fassade steckt mehr Geschichte. Zum Beispiel eine kleine Dummheit mit großen Folgen, festgehalten im Beatles-Guide: Paul McCartney zündete beim Auszug aus diesem unwirtlichen Loch im Dezember 1960 ein Kondom an und verbrannte es im Flur. Bruno Koschmider zeigte ihn wegen Brandstiftung an. Die Folge: Paul und Pete Best muss-ten eine Nacht in einer Zelle der berühmten Davidswache auf der Reeperbahn verbringen, bevor sie nach Großbritannien ausgewiesen wurden.
Offensichtlich ein mieser Trick im rüden Rock-n-Roll-Geschäft auf dem Kiez. Die -Beatles hatten nämlich erstens im „Kaiserkeller” Erfolg und zweitens bereits George Harrison verloren, der im November 1960 ausgewiesen worden war, weil er noch nicht volljährig war. Anfang Dezember 1960 waren John, Paul, Pete und Stu Sutcliffe aus dem „Kaiserkeller” abgeworben worden und sollten zukünftig im neu eröffneten „Top Ten” auf der Reeperbahn auftreten. Diesen Plan durchkreuzte „Kaiserkeller”-Manager Bruno Koschmider erfolgreich mit seiner Anzeige wegen Brandstiftung. Doch im März 1961 waren die Beatles wieder da und traten nun mit Tony Sheridan zusammen im „Top Ten” auf der Reeperbahn 136 auf. Der Fußmarsch hierhin lohnt heute jedoch nicht mehr, denn in der jetzt im ehemaligen „Top-Ten” beheimateten Disco „La Cage” finden sich keine Beatles-Spuren.

Dafür aber im Beatles-Guide: Kurz und anschaulich beschreibt Ulf Krüger, wie Tony Sheridan selbst mithalf, hier die Bühne zu bauen, wie die Beatles nun für immerhin 40 Mark pro Nacht darauf umjubelte Auftritte hinlegten und ab Frühjahr 1961 ihre Fans aus dem „Kaiserkeller” ins „Top Ten” rüberzogen. Darunter auch Grafiker und Bassist Klaus Voormann und Astrid Kirchherr, die die später berühmt gewordenen Fotos der Beatles auf dem nah gelegenen Heiligengeistfeld mach-te und angeblich die Pilzkopffrisuren erfand. Und noch einer hörte von diesen angeblich fabelhaften Beatles, kam ins „Top Ten” und buchte die Band sofort für Aufnahmen: Bert Kaempfert, der Big-Band-Leader.
Er nahm die Beatles sogar unter Vertrag, den er erst auf Bitten des späteren Managers Brian Epstein löste. -Kaempfert ahnte nicht, dass er einen Millionendeal verschenkte. Der Beatles-Guide lotst seine Leser wieder zurück in die Große Freiheit, vorbei an diversen Table-Dance-Bars, Kontakthöfen, Thai-Clubs und anderen Rotlicht-Schuppen. Das Ziel: die Hausnummer 39, schräg gegenüber vom ehemaligen „Kaiserkeller”. Hier eröffnete ein gewisser Manfred Weißleder, zuvor Betriebselektriker auf dem Kiez, im April 1962 den „Star-Club” und warb die Beatles aus dem „Top Ten” ab. Drei Gastspiele absolvierten sie in dem zum Musikclub umgebauten Stern-Kino. Letzter Auftritt: 31. Dezember 1962. Danach gings zurück auf die britische Insel, denn zwischenzeitlich war ein Telegramm aus Liverpool angekommen: „Glückwunsch, Jungs Plattenfirma EMI möchte Aufnahmen mit euch.”

Aha, und den Star-Club -gibts also immer noch, denkt der Beatles-Spurensucher, wenn er vor der Großen Freiheit Nummer 39 angekommen ist. Doch ein Blick in Krügers Beatles-Guide macht auch hier schlau: Was da heute unter Star-Club firmiert, ist nur eine billige Kopie. Das letzte Konzert im ursprünglichen Star-Club ging bereits am Neujahrstag 1970 über die Bühne, danach war hier 13 Jahre lang das Sex-Theater „Salambo”, bis das Gebäude 1983 abbrannte und 1987 schließlich abgerissen wurde. Dafür finden sich im Beatles-Guide noch jede Menge Erinnerungen: Star-Club-Autogrammkarten der Beatles, ein Foto vom alten Eingang und besonders schön: eine Gagenquittung, ausgestellt für John Lennon über 425 Mark. Viele dieser erstmals veröffentlichten Exponate stammen von Ulf Krüger, der einst Schlagzeuger im Star-Club war, einer der besten Kenner der damaligen Szene ist und eine bemerkenswerte Privatsammlung mit Stücken aus der Zeit des „Hamburg Sound” besitzt.
Die würde er sogar für interessiertes Publikum zur Verfügung stellen, doch bisher sind alle Ideen, etwa ein Beatles-Museum auf dem Kiez zu eröffnen, im Sande verlaufen. Und aufdrängen möchte Krüger sich auch nicht, deutet aber doch ein bisschen wehmütig nach Liverpool: „Dort gibt es ,Cavern City Tours, Stadtrundfahrten auf den Spuren der Beatles”, erzählt er und schwärmt von der jährlich stattfindenden „Beatle-Week”: „Allein zum Abschlusstag dieser Festwoche kommen 250 000 Menschen! Ich glaube, die Stadt Hamburg weiß gar nicht, was für ein touristischer Magnet die Beatles sein könnten, wenn man ihre Vergangenheit hier nur richtig präsentieren würde.”

Und so bleibt der „Beatles-Guide” ein erster zaghafter Versuch im Westentaschenformat. Das macht die Sache spannender für Spurensucher: Denn Zeitzeugen wie Horst Jankowiak warten nicht in einem Hamburger Beatles-Museum als Wärter auf Besucher, nein, einen wie ihn muss man auf dem Kiez aufspüren, um Geschichten aus den Sixties zu hören. Kleiner Tipp: Mal im Lokal „Gretel und Alfons” in der Großen Freiheit 29 vorbeischauen. Hat Paul McCartney im Jahre 1989 auch gemacht. Denn hier, im „Wohnzimmer” der Star-Club-Musiker, hatte er 1962 gewohnt und beim Auszug Schulden hinterlassen. Die hat Paule nach 27 Jahren bei Horst Jankowiak mit Zins und Zinseszins bezahlt und ein Poster signiert, das heute natürlich einen Ehrenplatz bei „Gretel und Alfons” hat.

Jon Hammond zum 27. Mal auf der Musikmesse
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).

Wenn einer Orgel spielt, kann er sich auch gleich Hammond nennen, und hat dann seine Visitenkarte gleich als Logo auf dem Instrument. Seinen Sound dazu als “100% organic” anzukündigen, ist eine feine Doppelsinnigkeit. Seit 1987 kommt Hammond zur Musikmesse, vier Jahre später starb sein Vater und er siedelte kurzerhand nach Frankfurt über, die seine “Good Luck City” wurde, wohnte in Bornheim, spielte im Jazzkeller, fand dort Freunde und installierte die “Musikmesse Warm Up Party”, die er – längst zurück in NYC – alljährlich mit “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues” bespielt, mit “fine instrumentalists”, seinen Freunden Tony Lakatos (Saxophon) von der hr Bigband, Giovanni Gulino (Schlagzeug) und seinen alten Kollegen, Gitarrist Joe Berger.

The smallest car I ever did see: Renault Twizy – Jon Hammond
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Twizy
Manufacturer Renault
Production 2012–
Assembly Valladolid, Spain
Transmission Single gear
Battery 7 kWh lithium-ion battery
Electric range 100 km (62 mi)
Length 2.32 m (91 in)
Width 1.19 m (47 in)
Height 1.46 m (57 in)
Curb weight 450 kg (992 lb)
The Renault Twizy is an electric city car (legally classified in Europe as a heavy quadricycle) produced by Renault and manufactured entirely in Valladolid, Spain.[1] The quadricycle has a maximum range of 100 km (62 mi).
The Twizy was released for sales in France in March 2012 and in the UK and several other European countries the following month.[2] The car is available with three models, starting at €6,990 up to €8,490 (in the UK: GB£6,990 to GB£7,400). The sales price does not include the batteries, which will be leased for a monthly fee that includes a replacement guarantee – in case of battery breakdown or insufficient capacity – and roadside assistance.[3][4]
The Twizy was the top-selling plug-in electric vehicle in Europe during 2012.[5] Since March 2012, a total of 9,020 units were sold through December 2012, with Germany, France and Italy as the top selling markets
The concept car was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.[7]
In May 2011, Renault announced that they would produce the Twizy, and began taking reservations.
In November 2010, Japanese carmaker Nissan announced a rebadged concept, called the New Mobility Concept, or NMC. This though is a concept and no production plans have yet been announced.
Construction and safety
The Twizy is an ultra-compact vehicle, with a length of 2.32 m (8 ft), width1.19 m (4 ft) and a height of 1.46 m (5 ft).
The vehicle’s frame and body offer occupants extra protection with its deformable structure, while the outboard position of the four wheels and the lateral beams located either side of the chassis provide protection in case of a side-on impact. The safety retention systems include a driver’s airbag, a four-point safety belt at the front and a three-point one at the rear.
[edit]Models
The Twizy model is electric, and it therefore is part of Renault’s Zero Emissions programme.

Twizy Technic – doors are optional
[edit]Twizy Urban
[edit]Twizy Urban 45
The Twizy range starts with the Urban 45 that is priced at €6,990 in Europe with a monthly battery lease charge of €50.[8] It has a motor power of 4 kW (5 hp), a maximum speed of 45 km/h (28 mph) and can thus be driven in most European countries by drivers from 14 years old with a special driving licence (France, Italy, Spain) or with a moped licence (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Austria).[9]
[edit]Twizy Urban 80
The Urban 80 model features a 13 kW (17 hp) electric motor and can drive up to 80 km/h (50 mph). It is priced at €7,690.
[edit]Twizy Colour and Technic
The Colour model is a colourful and ‘fun’ Twizy available for both the 45 and 80 trims.[citation needed]
The Technic model brings additional design elements while sharing the technical features with the Urban. It is priced at €8,490, and it is available for both the 45 and 80 trims.[citation needed]
[edit]Battery

Twizy with charging wire out.
The 6.1 kWh (22 MJ) lithium-ion battery is located underneath the front seat. Both motor variants carry the same weight of 474 kg (1,045 lb),[10] including batteries of 100 kg (220 lb). The range is homologated at 100 km (62 mi). In real conditions, Renault announces around 80 km (50 mi). In worst conditions (high speed, no eco-driving), Twizy can reach 50 km (31 mi).
The battery can be charged with an extendable spiral cable stored beneath a flap at the front of the vehicle. The integrated charger is compatible with roadside battery charging facilities as well as the standard 220 V 10 A household electrical supply. Charging an empty battery takes around three-and-a-half hours.
A planned Renault battery plant near Paris was delayed due to technical constraints. Construction will start in the second quarter of 2012 and production of batteries is expected to begin in 2014 or 2015. In the meantime Renault intends to buy batteries for its EV range from a joint venture between Nissan Motor and NEC as well as LG Chem of South Korea.[11]
Twizy is only supplied with LG Chem modules. Batteries are assembled in Renault Valladolid plant.
[edit]Sales

Since its market launch in March 2012, global sales reached 9,020 units during 2012,[6] making the Twizy the best-selling plug-in electric vehicle in Europe during that year.[5] European sales through December 2012 reached 9,015 units.[6]
In France, a total 1,551 units were registered through June 2012, including 1,212 Twizy 80s and 339 Twizy 45s, representing a market share of 89% in the heavy quadricycle segment, and a market share of 28.5% among all categories of electric vehicles sold in France during the first half of 2012, surpassing the Bollore Bluecar, the top selling highway-capable all-electric car during this time period.[12] The best-selling markets through December 2012 are Germany with 2,413 units and France with 2,232 units, followed by Italy with 1,545 units, Spain with 943, Switzerland with 555 units, and Belgium and Luxembourg with 498 units delivered.[6]
[edit]Carsharing program

Renault tested a carsharing program called Twizy Way in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France, beginning in late June 2012. During the testing phase the program operated with a fleet of 50 Renault Twizys distributed over a pilot area covering around 27 km2 (10 sq mi), and around 200 were allowed to sign up for testing.[3] Twizy Way opened the service to the general public in December 2012.

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.

World Is Always On Jon Hammond for Bell Labs Alcatel Lucent Technologies

The World is Always On Jon Hammond for Alcatel-Lucent Technologies and Bell Labs worldwide campaign


<a


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bzE_iLxmkE


Jon Hammond for Alcatel-Lucent / Bell Labs: “On stage, on television or on the radio waves 
everyday I feel lucky because I’m ALWAYS ON! Jon HammondMusician, television personality and radio broadcaster Jon Hammond boarded a Concorde in 1981 to travel from New York to Paris at supersonic speed, and he never slowed down.Jon travels the world, touring in Europe and Asia two or three times each year while broadcasting his “HammondCast” morning radio show seven days a week. At home in the United States, Jon splits his time between New York City and San Francisco and performs four to five concerts each month at local hospitals, nursing homes and prisons. His cable television program, “The Jon Hammond Show,” is in its 25th year and going strong.“In my business, it’s essential to be contactable 24/7. I couldn’t organize as much as I do without being ALWAYS ON.” Inspired by the Beatles and fascinated by the radio (he built a crystal radio at the age of five), Jon knew he was destined to be a musician. Although that’s a departure from tradition – Jon’s father and grandfather were physicians – Jon carries on the family business in his own way by performing in some of the very hospitals where his father once practiced medicine.“I’ve seen people get out of their wheelchairs and dance more times than I can count, so I’m happy I can make a difference playing for those who are less fortunate than me.”Jon has not forgotten those who opened doors for him when he was first starting out in music and broadcasting, and now he uses his radio and cable television shows to do the same for deserving young talent.Like Jon, we at Alcatel-Lucent are passionate about connecting people through communications technology. In our Bell Labs locations around the world, we’re working on new and exciting innovations in next-generation broadband technology to ensure people like Jon can find even more creative ways to share music, moments and memories.

Jon Hammond: Late Rent

The Late Rent Story
Jon Hammond waited half his life to make this CD – starting with being an underground TV host.
Swingin’ Funky Jazz & Blues
Jon Hammond describes his style of music and how he learned to play it.
Two Hot Tracks
Jon Hammond recalls one of his first songs – from age 15 – and a great Sunday session.
Sonny’s Advice
A little advice on melody from a great sax player went a long way.

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.

LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

History

An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

History

An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

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,

sincerely,
