Late Rent
(Ham-Berger-Friz Records) 

Jon Hammond says "the fingers are the singers.'" The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. "Late Rent" draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists. It shows why the Hammond organ is one of the most enduring electric instruments and why Hammond is one of its best players. 1. "The Late Rent Story" - Jon Hammond waited half his life to make this CD - starting with being an underground TV host.
 2. "Swingin' Funky Jazz & Blues" - Jon Hammond describes his style of music and how he learned to play it.
 3. "Two Hot Tracks" - Jon Hammond recalls one of his first songs - from age 15 - and a great Sunday session.
 4. "Sonny's Advice" - A little advice on melody from a great sax player went a long way.

The NDR Sessions Projekt
(Ham-Berger-Friz Records) 

Jon Hammond's "The NDR Sessions Projekt" brings the soulful jazz organist back to Hamburg to record a collection of standards and originals featuring Lutz Buchner on saxophones, Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius on drums. Recorded in one of Germany's best studios, the quartet present rich, heartfelt perfomances and infuse the music with a fresh and vibrant sound. 1. "NDR Sessions" - Jon Hammond says the NDR session was based on a sentimental idea.
 2. "Lutz Buchner" - Jon Hammond wanted to feature saxophonist Lutz Buchner on the CD.
 3. "Bass and Organ" - Jon Hammond says his style is playing bass and organ - on the Hammond.
 4. "Jazz Spirits" - Jon Hammond wanted to rekindle a certain jazz spirit - and take some risks.

Sk1 Hammond Stage Keyboard 新着情報 REPORT/海外からのお客様/ハモンド/鈴木楽器 Jon Hammond

*WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond




Filmed in Hammond Suzuki Deutschland Headquarters Karlstrasse 38
D-89129 Langenau Germany on April 19th 2011
"Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond"
First look at this exciting new keyboard product weighing in at 7 kilos, just over 15 lbs., it sounds like a real Hammond B3 organ with Leslie, or a full size grand piano, any type of famous vintage electric piano or synthesizer. This keyboard does it all and with original Hammond drawbars and it's feather light. Sk1 has a built in USB flash drive input, the keys are 'bullet proof' waterfall style keys that can hold up to extreme pressure of rockin' rock musicians, swinging jazz musicians and can even sound like a huge pipe organ. This film will blow your mind.
