CANNONBALL '99 One More Time! JON HAMMOND Band

"Cannonball '99 (One more time!)" (Shuffle) performed by JON HAMMOND Band in New York City at CLEOPATRA'S NEEDLE Club: TIM ARMACOST (tenor sax), HEINZ LICHIUS (drums), JOE BERGER (guitar), JON HAMMOND (Hammond Organ/Bass) *JENNIFER-Camera Composed/Published: JON HAMMOND Intl., Inc./ASCAP Cannonball is a rollicking shuffle that I would like to dedicate to all those out there on the superslab with the hammer down driving cross-country. "Cannonball" means non-stop, coast to coast. I have driven more miles than most people will ever live to drive. I've seen 18 wheel trucks drive off the side of a mountain in black ice...drivers falling asleep at the wheel and angry people driving like idiots. Buckle up for safety, keep a CB radio and a cell phone in the car and please drive safely out there everybody! JOE BERGER joins us for a rockin' solo on this one, ala ZZ TOP. He's been cannonballin' on the big-time tour busses with everybody from The WHO's JOHN ENTWISTLE who we unfortunately lost last year, to boy band DREAM STREET. We call him the "Berger-meister"! HEINZ LICHIUS came all the way from Germany to kick us in the ASS on this gig and TIM ARMACOST' big New York Tenor Sax sound is outstanding on this outting at the popular NY night spot. Jon Hammond is host of CBS Radio HammondCast on KYCY/KYOU 1550 AM http://www.HammondCast.com

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.

Das Konzert im Blauen Engel firmiert unter The Jon Hammond Show. Warum, spüren die Zuschauer bereits nach der ersten Ansage. Jon Hammond ist ein Showman, ein Dampfplauderer, geschult in Jahrzehnten als Radio- und TV-Moderator. Obendrein ist der 55-Jährige ein ausgezeichneter Organist an der Hammond Orgel. Mit der instrumentalen Jazz-Revue begibt er sich auf die Spuren von Miles Davis, The Crusaders und Jimmy Smith, immer nach dem Slogan handelnd: „The fingers are the singers“.

Für den Weltenbummler sind Orte nur Stationen auf seinem Lebensweg. Chicago, Paris, Frankfurt-Bornheim, Hamburg-St.Pauli, New York. Die vielen Menschen und Musiker, die der Organist kennenlernt, bilden die Grundlage, auf der er seine späteren Referenzen, Anekdoten und Songgeschichten aufbaut. Und Jon kennt sie fast alle.
Das Konzert im Blauen Engel firmiert unter The Jon Hammond Show. Warum, spüren die Zuschauer bereits nach der ersten Ansage. Jon Hammond ist ein Showman, ein Dampfplauderer, geschult in Jahrzehnten als Radio- und TV-Moderator. Obendrein ist der 55-Jährige ein ausgezeichneter Organist an der Hammond Orgel. Mit der instrumentalen Jazz-Revue begibt er sich auf die Spuren von Miles Davis, The Crusaders und Jimmy Smith, immer nach dem Slogan handelnd: „The fingers are the singers“.
Im Spiel geht Jon Hammond absolut in seiner Musik und seiner Leidenschaft für den guten alten Hammond-Sound auf. Mit 18 Jahren kaufte er sich seine erste Hammond B3 und tourte mit der Rockband Hades im Vorprogramm von Tower Of Power oder Michael Bloomfield. Erst 1991 legte er sich eine digitale und leichtere XB-2 zu. Ein regelrechter Genießer: Seinen Kopf wiegt er ständig von einer Seite zur anderen, windet sich wie Stevie Wonder über seinen Fingern. Die linke Hand ersetzt dabei größtenteils den Part eines Bassisten, zusätzlich zu den verschiedenen Klangfarben, die er manuell justiert.
Nicht zu ersetzen sind die Musiker, die die Jon Hammond Show auf der Bühne komplettieren. Heinz Lichius trommelt wie in jeder seiner Formationen aufs Allerfeinste, der 26-jährige Sebastian Gille verblüfft anstelle von Gabriel Coburger am Saxofon mit feinfühligen, gleichwohl kraftvollen Soli und Gitarrist Joe Berger gleicht einem Saiten-Hasardeur. Auch wenn er nicht der ehemalige Who-Gitarrist ist, wie es die Veranstalter-Info weismachen möchte - zumindest spielte er bereits mit Who-Bassist John Entwistle und sorgte in dessen Band für den Studio-Mix.
Ein Hauptmerkmal der Instrumental-Songs: eingängige Melodie und markante Grooves. Jon Hammond verarbeitet die Begegnung mit einem traurigen Mädchen in Paris oder dem tschechischen Salsa-König ebenso wie das nächtliche Wühlen im Hotelmüll. Neben Jazz-Elementen ist sein Stil tief verwurzelt im Rock, Funk, East Bay Grease, Bossa Nova, Soul und Rhythm & Blues. Bisweilen klingen die seichten Stücke, allen voran Duke Ellingtons
Satin Doll oder
Moanin' von Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, wie auf einem Kreuzfahrtdampfer, aber die Protagonisten reißen frühzeitig das Ruder herum, indem sie mit Shuffle-Witz und Funk-Schweiß dagegen halten.
