This new release from Jon Hammond marks his move into mainstream jazz. Utilizing the famous NDR Orchestra and Studios in Hamburg, Germany, Jon has crafted an excellent organ jazz record utilizing drums, sax and trombone. Outstanding support from saxophone soloist Lutz Buchner adds a lyrical modern jazz sound to the recordings. Excellent drumming by Heinz Lichius and the soulful sound of Joe Gallardo on trombone round out the disc. Great classic tunes are covered, along with some originals, including "My One and Only Love," "Skylark," "Besame Mucho," "Blues In The Night" and "No X-Cess Baggage Blues."

"This was, without exaggeration, one of the best acoustics-related technical decisions for the NDR I have been involved in during the past few years," comments NDR sound engineer Michael Plötz. "The digital audio world now enjoys incomparably good sound thanks to the use of the AX 24 in the production chain of this studio. The combination of a DAD AX24 and the SSL Duality console places us in a new 'analog/digital world'"
The completely reworked Studio 1 and Regie 1 at NDR Radio's Funkhaus am Rothenbaum is designed primarily for recording the NDR Bigband, one of the best finest bands in Germany. Studio 1 is built around a 72 fader SSL Duality and Sequoia digital audio workstation software. Eight NTP DAD AX24 converters are connected via MADI to the workstation.
