HammondCast 36 KYOU Radio and KYCY Jon Hammond Hosting

*LISTEN TO HammondCast 36 HERE:

HammondCast 36 Jon Hammond in New York City just back from Germany music tour and annual Musikmesse Frankfurt trade show...digging deep in to the archives to present a special show put together by Jon in 1993 in Frankfurt Hausen at BROTFABRIK (the old Bread Factory) Jon Hammond presenting French Pianist FRANCOISE PUJOL first time in Germany along with RICHARD BONA on bass from Cameroon & Paris, now living in NY and FRANCIS LASSUS - drums batterie. A crazy story about how Jon convinced Boesendorfer Piano Company to bring their most expensive concert-grand piano for Francoise to play there. The musicians got in to an argument at sound check and Jon almost had to play the famous piano himself, but thankfully it worked out and the tension made for some great playing! Never before heard (I wonder why?!) Also a new track from Hungarian super-star saxophonist TONY LAKATOS' brand-new album "Gypsy Colours" on the SKIP RECORDS label. Tony's original composition "Mr. Fried" played and recorded with his brothers in Budapest Hungary. Thank you Tony and The Lakatos Family! Jon's trio live at Bruno's in San Francisco featuring drummer RONNIE SMITH Jr. from Oakland CA and dedicated to United Airlines: "No Excess Baggage Blues" from Jon Hammond's new album "NDR SESSIONS Projekt" for KYOU/KYCY 1550 AM, home of the Oakland A's © www.HammondCast.com
