  • Good job man !!!!Great Jon Hammond!!!Nice to see you again...I've listened your CD:Late Rent...I really like your music!!!
  • very chunky groove, feels like an exploration, that is a mean guitar solo . lots of dynamic,I am fascinated with how fluent and full the group sounds . perfect balance of sharp arrangement and improvisation. that was heavy. I'm gonna play it again and plug in my guitar and jam to it
  • Great music, jon, thanks for sharing it.

  • This is a VERY GOOD jazz organ group. Good contemporary feel, solid, inspired playing from the sidemen and consistent groove from the drummer and organist who, of course, takes great solos.
