R.I.P. Leon Russell very sadly folks! – Jon Hammond #LeonRussell #RIP #HammondCast
Reuters: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-people-leonrussell-idUSKBN1380JM – photo by Jon Hammond

“Leon Russell, musician known for dynamic performances, dies at 74”
By Bill Trott
Leon Russell, who emerged in the ’70s as one of rock’n’roll’s most dynamic performers and songwriters after playing anonymously on dozens of pop hits as a much-in-demand studio pianist in the 1960s, died on Sunday at the age of 74, according to his website.

Russell, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, died in his sleep in Nashville, Tennessee, his wife said in a statement on the website.

Russell had endured health problems in his later years, undergoing surgery to stop leaking brain fluid in 2010 and suffering a heart attack in July 2016.
Russell’s period of stardom as a performer was relatively brief but Elton John, who had once been Russell’s opening act, engineered a comeback for him in 2010 when they collaborated on an album titled “The Union.”

“He was my biggest influence as a piano player, a singer and a songwriter,” John told ABC News.

Russell recorded more than 35 albums and also excelled as a songwriter for other performers. His “A Song for You” was recorded by Joe Cocker, the Carpenters, the Temptations, Neil Diamond, Lou Rawls, Dusty Springfield, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and his good friend Willie Nelson. The Carpenters, Reddy, Shirley Bassey, Robert Goulet and George Benson all covered Russell’s “This Masquerade,” with Benson’s version winning the 1976 Grammy as record of the year.

Russell was known as “the master of space and time” in his ’70s heyday. He wore a cocked top hat and, with salt-and-pepper hair past his shoulders and a beard that reached his chest, created an inscrutable image that was equal parts shaman, tent revival preacher and cosmic ringmaster.

He ruled the stage with piano-banging abandon and, backed by a multi-piece band and a backup chorus, put on a show that was a roiling stew of rock, soul, gospel and country.

WRECKING CREW

He was born Claude Russell Bridges on April 2, 1942, and grew up in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area. He was playing in bars at age 14 and joined a band that included J.J. Cale, who also would go on to music stardom.

Russell moved to Los Angeles as American music was taking a new shape. He became part of a talented pool of studio musicians known informally as the Wrecking Crew who provided back up for pop and rock hits of the early and mid-1960s, including those by Jan and Dean, the Beach Boys, the Monkees and the Byrds. Russell also was part of producer Phil Spector’s trademark “Wall of Sound” recording team.

Russell also played guitar, worked as an arranger, songwriter and piano player for the house band on the popular television dance show “Shindig.”

He eased into the spotlight in 1970 as a driving force on Joe Cocker’s landmark Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour. Russell assembled the 20-piece band, which came with a legion of hangers-on, and served as its leader on a riotous two-month U.S. tour that spawned a double-disc live album and a documentary film.

His work with Cocker, an appearance in the film about George Harrison’s 1971 “Concert for Bangladesh” and his first solo album, which featured contributions from three Rolling Stones and two Beatles, made Russell a star in his own right in 1970.

In 1969 Russell and Denny Cordell started Shelter Records, which put out recordings by Russell, Cale, Freddie King, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Phoebe Snow.
After his rock stardom faded, Russell adopted the alter ego of Hank Wilson for several albums of country classics that let him turn loose his Oklahoma twang.

Although he continued recording and touring, Russell was far from the spotlight in the 1990s and 2000s until he and John recorded “The Union” and went on a short joint tour. John said he was inspired to collaborate when he was moved to tears upon rehearing Russell’s song “Back to the Island.”

Russell, who had to have surgery because of leaking brain fluid a week before going into the studio, said it was the first time he had heard from John in 35 years.

“If Leon can get the accolades he deserves and be financially OK for the rest of his life, I will have done something decent with my music,” John told the New York Times.

HAMMOND® XK-5
“THE NEW ORIGINAL”
The HAMMOND B-3TM organ and its siblings such as the C-3TM and A-100TM have been the single most influential keyboard instruments in musical history, perhaps apart from the acoustic piano. When paired with the spinning Leslie® speaker, the HAMMOND’s sonic versatility defined the electrified keyboard sound of genres from rock to soul to Gospel to jazz. This sound is as sought after today as ever.
With the XK-5 and Heritage Series, HAMMOND is proud to announce that we’ve closed the final millimeters of the realism gap—in terms of both sound and feel—in a form factor that’s far more portable and affordable than a vintage Hammond organ. We are very proud of this instrument for providing an absolutely authentic playing experience that will meet the demands of even the most seasoned B-3 purist. Frankly, we feel it has no peer among today’s keyboard offerings.
“It’s very important to feel comfortable sitting at the organ. Sometimes I play an organ and it doesn’t feel like what I’m used to. First of all, [The XK-5] feels like
a B-3, just sitting at it.” – Dr. Lonnie Smith, legendary jazz organist
“It’s a Hammond B3! That’s what most of us want in
essence. But to be able to go beyond that and have all these incredible adjustments … I’m in love!” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)
Let’s face it: Moving and maintaining an antique Hammond will only become more difficult as time passes. Of course we have tons of respect for anyone who does, but to get all of the sound with none of the hassle, let’s learn why the XK-5 is destined to become The New OriginalTM
.
NEW PATENT-PENDING TECHNOLOGIES
The engineering team we’ve dedicated to the Hammond sound for over 30 years went back to the drawing board for nearly everything about the new XK-5, analyzing many classic organs and poring over original diagrams and blueprints that only we possess. Here are some of the biggest new ideas in the new Hammond XK-5.
2|Page
Hybrid Multiple Key Contact System: On classic Hammonds (and in our current, full-sized New B-3 Mk. II family), pressing a key closes nine mechanical contacts: one for each drawbar. Your ears usually hear the multiple harmonics as one note. Depress a key slowly, however, and you can hear the harmonics come in at slightly different times. Normal playing created a subtle “slop” between otherwise crisp attacks, and the more drawbars you pull out, the more of an almost subliminal but chewy and soulful character it impacts to the sound. One perhaps feels this more than hears it, but seasoned players certainly notice its absence.
You can’t accomplish this with a single MIDI note-on, which is what most of today’s organ and synth key actions use. In the XK-5, we use three mechanical contacts at different points in the keys’ travel. Each of these in turn triggers three virtual contacts, giving you separate “note on” connections for every drawbar frequency in the same manner as the original nine-contact electro-mechanical Hammond® organs. The result is a fingers-to-music connection that perfectly duplicates sitting at a vintage B while saving on weight and cost. Plus, the time-spread between these “note ons” is programmable, as is the order in which you hear the harmonics speak. And since the contacts all receive and transmit MIDI note data, you can capture every harmonic nuance of your performance in your DAW program of choice—to which you can directly connect the XK-5 via USB.
“The first thing that struck me was the action. I played a big Larry Young chord, and stretching and hitting that top note, it didn’t quite trigger all the way until I really pressed on it. That’s exactly what a B-3 does and what I expect as a B-3 player.” – Jim Alfredson (Organissimo, Janiva Magness)
(Jim – jamming on the XK5 – ModelA3)
Completely Redesigned Key-bed: The XK-5’s keyboard action is built in-house, not sourced from a third-party manufacturer. We designed it to duplicate the heft, bounce, and key dip of a “new old stock” and well-maintained B-3TM: No springy synth keys allowed! Master Hammond players who tested early prototypes confirmed that nothing comes closer to the feel and response they expect. Of course it has the “waterfall” key fronts critical to Hammond playing techniques such as palm slides. Play the XK-5 alongside any other modern organ and we’re convinced you’ll find the difference stunning.
“The feel of the keyboard, it kicks back at you.
It’s not dead, and it feels good.
See, that’s what we’re looking for!”- Dr. Lonnie Smith
“It’s like the feel of what I imagine it must have been like in 1968
when you put your hands on a brand new one. It feels great.”- Chuck Leavell
3|Page
All-New Sound Engine: The XK-5 employs new proprietary technology to recreate Hammond’s storied tone wheel generator with unprecedented accuracy and flexibility. Tone wheels were spinning discs on shafts, each with its own pickup pointing at the edge. The pattern of “teeth” cut into the edge of the wheel and its rotational speed determined the pitch. Modeling and sampling are combined in an exclusive process to capture the frequencies of all 91 tone wheels found in the original organs, not to mention other important sonic details such as key click, harmonic percussion, vibrato-chorus, and more.
Tone wheel generators have become like rare violins or classic cars: Even though Hammond originally calibrated all instruments that left the factory to sound identical, no two are exactly alike after decades of use. So we’ve extended the programmability of both the overall generator characteristics (such as leakage and cross-talk between pickups) and individual tone wheel behavior (such as the purity of the sine wave) to almost ludicrous depths. In addition to letting you perfectly duplicate different conditions of Hammonds—from showroom-new to road-abused if that’s what you’re going for—there’s the ability to recreate individual organs right down to the model, year, and serial number! Presets will capture the exact tonal qualities of famous artists’ instruments, from jazz great Dr. Lonnie Smith to Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) to Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey) and more.
Virtual Matching Transformer: An often overlooked subtlety of the Hammond sound was that the tone wheels generated tiny voltages that needed to be stepped up, and you could be “drawing on” some of the same wheels at the same time by playing similar notes with similar drawbar settings on both manuals. All signals from the upper, lower, and pedal manuals passed through a matching transformer that was intended to even things out before the signal moved on to the preamp and vibrato-chorus scanner. The transformer—a piece of iron with a coil wrapped around it—could “remember” some of its saturation based on how hard it had been working previously, thus affecting new notes played. Physicists call this hysteresis. Musically speaking, it affects how much “volume robbing” you hear and adds to what Hammond aficionados think of as the “breathing” quality of the organ. (The phenomenon is similar to why some recording engineers like transformer-equipped microphones and/or preamps for certain sounds.) In the XK-5, the matching transformer and its place in the signal chain is modeled precisely, and the saturation and hysteresis amounts are adjustable from barely-there to over-the-top. Like we said, we’re closing the final few millimeters of the realism gap.
MORE FEATURES
We didn’t stop there. Just a few of the XK-5’s more than 50 innovations and features include:
• Four full sets of Harmonic Drawbars plus pedal drawbars, just like on original Hammond
console organs including the B-3.
• 12 additional virtual tone wheels are devoted to harmonically complex pedal tones (i.e. more
than just 16′ and 8′ sine waves), as found on Hammonds beginning in 1945.
• Custom tone wheel profiles available via download.
• Our best-ever Digital Leslie effect. Anything else is just a “rotary simulator.”
• Continuously variable Digital Leslie speed if desired.
4|Page
• Dedicated octave shift / transpose buttons.
• Improved DSP-based overdrive complemented by vacuum tube preamp.
• Improved vibrato-chorus.
• Dedicated on/off buttons and amount knobs for reverb, overdrive, and assignable multi-FX.
• Lower B drawbars can alternately control 9 MIDI CC messages for external gear.
• Left and right 1⁄4” outs can be used at the same time as Leslie output, for running the XK-5
through a real Leslie in parallel to stationary speakers, a subwoofer, or house P.A.
• More key-triggering modes for pedal-to-lower coupler (Manual Bass function).
• Firmware updatable via USB flash drive or directly from computer.
• Crisp new OLED display is more readable under different lighting conditions.
Of course we’ve retained the things that made working with the XK-3C and our compact SK-series keyboards a joy. Hold any button and the first page of parameters most relevant to it comes up in the display—holding the Leslie speed button for Digital Leslie settings, for example. This saves you a ton of menu-diving when customizing your sounds. New patch-naming and copying features also make your housekeeping even easier.
HERITAGE SERIES OVERVIEW
The single manual XK-5 forms the basis of our new Heritage Series, letting you configure as large or
as small a system as your gig requires.
For adding flawless and inspiring Hammond organ sound to your existing multi-keyboard rig, simply purchase the XK-5 single-manual unit. It contains all the tone-generating “brains” in case you want to expand later. From here, two systems offer a choice between contemporary or traditional looks for players who require dual manuals and/or pedals.
XK-5 Pro System
This system is best for touring musicians who carry their own gear but require a full portable B-3.
The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system. It features the same high-quality cabinetry as the main unit, with vertically extended side panels designed to cradle your XK-5. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance.
Jazz players who kick bass can add the XPK-250 two-octave radiating pedalboard, which includes our new EXP-250 expression pedal. Though the XK-5 is compatible with previous XK-3 and XK-3C Pro System expansion products such as the XLK-3 lower manual (though you’ll only get the multiple key contacts on the XK-5 itself), all the new components interconnect via H-BUS, our new connector that simplifies setup by carrying both data and power.
Rounding out the options are the open-footprint aluminum Pro stand, which folds for easy carry, and matching bench.
5|Page
Model A-3TM
So named because it looks very much like Laurens Hammond’s first organ, the Model ATM he introduced in 1935, the Model A-3 is ideal for installation in a church or nightclub, or for any application where the appearance of a classic B-series Hammond is desired.
It begins with the XK5 and adds the A-3 lower manual, which functions exactly like the XLK-5 but has thicker side panels. The wooden “B-3 look” stand and bench match the cabinetry perfectly, as does the XPK-250 pedalboard with expression pedal.
HAMMOND will offer different bundles of these components through better retailers everywhere.
If you demand no less than perfection from your tone-wheel organ sound, a feel and responsiveness that will make you close your eyes and imagine you’re playing a vintage B-3, and programmability that will let you recreate any specific Hammond that may be in your mind’s ear, don’t settle for a “clone.” Insist on The New Original … the HAMMOND XK-5.
“I’m so glad Hammond is carrying on the tradition, and making it even better than it was in the beginning. Congratulations!” – Chuck Leavell

Surprise scholarship aids Hayward pilot’s flight instruction dreams

Clay Burch (standing behind Sullenberger) who arranged for the Oakland Firefighters Random Acts charity to fund Carr’s flight education. (Kristopher Skinner/Bay Area News Group) ”
By George Kelly | gkelly@bayareanewsgroup.com
PUBLISHED: November 7, 2016 at 5:13 pm
“OAKLAND — “Whoa, whoa, oh my God!”

Quincey Carr cried out as he wheeled around full circle in his wheelchair as media and well-wishers quickly surrounded him at the corner of Hegenberger Road and Edgewater Drive near his job.

Only minutes before, an Oakland fire engine had pulled up to treat Carr in an attempt to distract him.
“They surprised me, they had the fire truck show up here and test my pulse and said ‘Are you OK?’” he said. “Then people just started swarming in, and I was like, ‘What is happening?’”

Carr, 32, of Hayward, was immediately surrounded by cameras and city leaders, including Mayor Libby Schaaf, and Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who presented him with a $10,000 scholarship check on behalf of Oakland Firefighters Random Acts to cover the cost of flight instruction classes.

“I’m just so happy that I can really devote all of the time in doing what I really want to do,” said Carr, who wields a bullhorn and signs six days a week to promote Ramos Furniture, a family-owned and operated chain of Northern California stores.

He came by his love of flight early with visits to his parents’ jobs at the Alameda Naval Air Station leading to model-plane collections, flight lessons and his own private pilot’s license at age 17 in 2002.

But tragedy struck on Aug. 11, 2006, when Carr, who learned he had passed his written exam for a commercial license, went out with his girlfriend to begin celebrations with a haircut at his regular barbershop on International Boulevard. When his girlfriend rebuffed a stranger’s flirting, the man left the shop but returned soon after with a gun and shot Carr three times, then fired two more shots into him on the floor.

Carr’s dreams were on hold. But he fought back through agonizing rehabilitation to teach ground instruction at a local flight school, take friends on occasional plane rides and play a weekly piano gig at a Union City hotel to make ends meet.
Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch said he met Carr earlier this year while visiting Ramos Furniture during a work break. It was after that chance meeting that Burch started thinking about how he could help Carr.

“We’re here to hopefully start him on a path to change his life. His dream has always been to be a flight instructor. Today, we’re here to help him realize his dream,” Burch said.

Larry Hendricks, a retired 30-year Oakland firefighter, said the mayor’s office contacted his nonprofit organization, Oakland Firefighters Random Acts, to help with Burch’s plan.

“When we heard (Burch) had taken the time to get the backstory of a guy hundreds of people had driven by in his wheelchair, it was a no-brainer for us,” Hendricks said.

At fire station No. 27 on Pardee Road, officials started talking about a scholarship that would allow Carr to train at Pacific States Aviation, a flight-based operator in Concord.

“I’ve known Quincey for more than 15 years,” Rashid Yahya, Pacific States vice president and chief pilot, said. “He still flies out of our academy using a special apparatus. I’m really glad we can help Quincey with his passion for flying and teaching. Once he gets his certificate, he can teach any student from private to commercial how to fly.”

Sullenberger praised Random Acts and all others who helped raise funds for Carr’s equipment and training.

“When I became a flight instructor when I was 20 years old, I very quickly realized it’s one thing to be able to accomplish something, to achieve a certain level of performance, but it’s quite another to, in very granular fashion, break that down into component parts and explain it to someone so they can begin to do it,” said Sullenberger, who lavished praise on Carr’s determination and perseverance in pursuing his flight instruction dreams.

“I’m going to tell him today that forever after when I see a small plane overhead, I’m going to say ‘I wonder if that’s Quincey?’”

David Bowie Is has been on tour ever since the March 2013 V&A launch: it’s visited Toronto, Sao Paolo, Chicago, Melbourne, the Netherlands and is about to open in Tokyo. Daniel remarks, “If [Records and Rebels] is successful, I would love it to go on tour – but that is the V&A’s decision.”

Is Daniel a big fan of music from the era? “I would have loved to have been alive at that time. I’m a big fan of Zappa, Hendrix, Bob Dylan. I play guitar and piano – but I have more passion than talent!”

Scott Muni wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Muni

Scott Muni (May 10, 1930 – September 28, 2004, aged 74) was an American disc jockey, who worked at the heyday of the AM Top 40 format and then was a pioneer of FM progressive rock radio. Rolling Stone magazine termed him “legendary”
Born Donald Allen Muñoz in Wichita, Kansas, Muni grew up in New Orleans. He joined the United States Marine Corps and began broadcasting there in 1950, reading “Dear John” letters over Radio Guam. After leaving the Corps and having considered acting as a career, he began working as a disc jockey; in 1953 he began working at WSMB in New Orleans. His mentor was Marshall Pearce. In 1955 he began broadcasting at station WAKR in Akron, Ohio, and after that worked in Kankakee, Illinois.

Career[edit]
Muni then spent almost 50 years at stations in New York City. He became a Top 40 broadcaster at 570 WMCA in the late 1950s, just before the start of their “Good Guys” era, and did a number of record hops in the New York area. In 1960, he moved to rival Top 40 station 770 WABC. There he did an early evening show called “Scotland’s Yard” and was among the first WABC DJs to capture the attention of the teenage audience for which the station would become famous. He also participated in the competition to cover The Beatles on their first visits to the United States, and thus began a long association with them.

In 1965, Muni left WABC and ran the Rolling Stone Night Club while doing occasional fill-in work for WMCA. Muni had explored some opportunities beyond radio: for a short time he co-hosted a local weekly television show on WABC-TV 7 with Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow, and he would go on to record the spoken single “Letter to an Unborn Child”, about a soldier with a premonition, which was released in 1967 to little acclaim.

Muni decided to return to radio, and in 1966, he joined 98.7 WOR-FM, one of the earliest stations in the country to program free-form Progressive Rock music. The progressive format did not last at that station. In 1967 Muni moved to 102.7 WNEW-FM, which had been running a format of pop hits and show tunes, hosted by an all-woman staff. This time, the Progressive Rock format really took hold, with WNEW-FM becoming a legendary rock station. Muni stayed there for three decades as the afternoon DJ and sometimes program director. Muni was described by fellow WNEW-FM DJ Dennis Elsas as “the heart and soul of the place”. Under assorted management changes during the 1990s WNEW-FM lost its way, and in 1998 Muni ended up hosting a one-hour noontime classic rock program at WAXQ “Q104.3”, where he worked until suffering a stroke in early 2004.

Muni’s low, gravelly voice was instantly recognizable and often lampooned, both by other disc jockeys and by impressionists such as on Imus in the Morning. He was often known to his listeners by the nicknames “Scottso” or “The Professor”, the latter to emphasize both his rock expertise and his age difference with most of his audience. While he sometimes spoke in roundabout phrases and succumbed to progressive rock radio clichés such as “That was a tasty cut from …”, he also conveyed on the air and in his professional relationships a gruff immediacy that was a by-product of both his time in the Marines and his earlier Top 40 skills.

A bizarre exchange occurred in August 1972 when a hostage-holding bank robber called Muni on the air and engaged him in a long, often nonsensical conversation; the two peppered their post-hippie speech with discussions of Bob Dylan music and requests to hear the Grateful Dead.

Muni specialized in playing records from up-and-coming, or sometimes just-plain-obscure, acts from the United Kingdom on his weekly Friday “Things from England” segment. He also hosted the syndicated radio programs Ticket to Ride and Scott Muni’s World of Rock.

Muni often referred to “we interviewed so and so,” making reference to himself and either “Black” Earl Douglas or another producer. Indeed, Muni was friendly with many of the musicians whom he played, and they would often stop by the studio to visit on-air. He played poker in the studio with the Grateful Dead, and he would let Emerson, Lake & Palmer browse the station’s huge record library and put on whatever they liked. An oft-related story tells that he was interviewing Jimmy Page when the guitarist suddenly passed out from the aftereffects of the Led Zeppelin lifestyle. Muni calmly put on a record, revived Page, and completed the interview on the studio floor.

Muni was close to John Lennon and his family, and after Lennon’s murder he vowed to always open his show with a Lennon or Beatles record, a pledge that he kept for the balance of his career.

In addition to radio broadcasting, Muni also did voice-over work for radio and television; the most known were a commercial for Rolaids antacid (“How do you spell relief?”) and promos for Monday Night Football. His voice is also heard giving the introduction on the 1971 live albums Chicago at Carnegie Hall and Melanie at Carnegie Hall.

Muni also voiced many Radio & TV commercials such as Rolaids, JCPenney, Ricoh, etc. He also voiced episodes of NBC’s Friday Night Videos during 1985-86 and also voiced promos for ABC Sports which included boxing events on Wide World of Sports as well as Monday Night Football, the USFL on ABC, the Pro Bowlers Tour, the Sugar Bowl, the 1994 Stanley Cup Playoffs & Auto Racing including the Indy 500.

Personal life[edit]
Muni had three children with his first wife and two with his second wife, to whom he was married from 1966 until his death in 2004.

Death and legacy[edit]
He died on September 28, 2004 at the age of 74 in New York City and is buried in St. Gertrude’s Roman Catholic Cemetery in Colonia, New Jersey. Muni is included in an exhibit display of important disc jockeys at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The DJs at Q104.3 keep Muni’s promise to New York listeners and still start their noon hour with the “12 o’clock Beatles Block”.

Muni was inducted into the Rock Radio Hall of Fame in the Legends of Rock Radio-Programming” category for his work at WNEW in 2014.

Jon Hammond Show Preview, air date 07 09 on MNN TV – first segment
Roy Clark Television Interview with Jon Hammond just before Roy appeared on the American Eagle Awards in Nashville Tennessee during Summer NAMM Show – Roy Clark an American Living Legend and long-time member of The Grand Ole Opry and The Country Music Hall of Fame – Roy’s wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Clark Roy Linwood Clark (born April 15, 1933) is an American country music musician and performer. He is best known for hosting Hee Haw, a nationally televised country variety show, from 1969 to 1992. Roy Clark has been an important and influential figure in country music, both as a performer and helping to popularize the genre.
During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30-million viewership for Hee Haw. Clark is highly regarded and renowned as a guitarist and banjo player, and is also skilled on classical guitar and several other instruments. Although he has had hit songs as a pop vocalist (e.g., “Yesterday, When I Was Young” and “Thank God and Greyhound”), his instrumental skill has had an enormous effect on generations of bluegrass and country musicians. He has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, since 1987[1][2] and The Country Music Hall of Fame. BIOGRAPHY: Born in Meherrin, Virginia, Clark lived as a teenager in southeast Washington, D.C., where his father worked at the Washington Navy Yard. At 14, Clark began playing banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and by age 15 he had already won two National Banjo Championships[3] and world banjo/guitar flatpick championships. He was simultaneously pursuing a sporting career, first as a baseball player and then as a boxer, before dedicating himself solely to music. At 17, he had his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
At the age of 23, Clark obtained his pilot’s license and then bought a 1953 Piper Tri-Pacer (N1132C), which he flew for many years. This plane was raffled off on December 17, 2012, to benefit the charity Wings of Hope.[4] He has owned other planes, including a Mitsubishi MU-2, Stearman PT-17[5] and Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond 1A bizjet.

Jon Hammond Band at XK-5 Organ Debut Hammond Organ USA Party SoundCheck Nashville: Kayleigh Moyer drums, Chuggy Carter congas percussion, Joe Berger guitar, Jon Hammond at the new XK-5 organ – Summer NAMM 2016 fifth Sound Soul Summit Hammond Organ USA co-sponsored by Keyboard magazine and SoundCheck Nashville
LLC, Nashville – Event: “the first public showing of Hammond’s new XK-5
organ and Heritage Series expanded systems, which represent the cutting
edge of technology applied to recreating the precise touch, feel, and sound of the classic Hammond B-3.

Music Director Mark Prentice will lead a top Nashville-based rhythm
section (Charlie Morgan and Mike Severs) supporting the Hammond Artist
All-Stars, including the living jazz legend Dr. Lonnie Smith, Grammy
nominee Paul Brown, Red Young, Jon Hammond, Peter Gallinari, Kevin
McKendree (Brian Setzer, Joe Bonamassa) and Yates McKendree, the
Reverend Jimmie Smith, and Kim Tibbs. Robby Robinson (musical director
for Frankie Valli) will be on hand, as will Jim Alfredson, Gary Swan,
Christian Matthew Cullen, and this year’s DownBeat Critic’s Choice Poll
winner Brian Charette, and more.
It’s very rare that this many
accomplished Hammond organists get to play together, so the excitement
level among the musicians is as high as it is for the audience. It’s
even rarer to experience players from different genres jamming together.
As in past years, some surprise guests are sure to turn up. Four years
after the first Sound Soul Summit, attendees still remember it as a
highlight of their NAMM experience.” http://www.HammondCast.com
