*WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: Lou Colombo Movie Part 2 by Jon Hammond http://www.archive.org/details/LouColomboMoviePart2ByJonHammond http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcVNnbM2RjQ
*Update with very sad news, Folks, just a few days after I visited my good friend and bandleader, the greatest - Lou Colombo in Fort Myers Florida, I received an email on my cell phone just before going on a hospital gig from Lou's trombonist Nelson Foucht telling me that Lou was killed on the next gig driving home the night before, on March 3rd just 4 blocks from his Daughter's restaurant where he had just played. I am totally devastated and heart broken, sending my deepest condolences to the Colombo Family and all his musicians and extended family and friends. Rest in Peace Lou Colombo, the greatest trumpet player who ever lived...you will seen and hear on this film I shot just days ago. In Lou's memory, thanks for everything Big Lou! Sincerely, Jon Hammond *written before Lou's passing: Jon Hammond here...I just came back from visiting my main man Lou Colombo the great trumpet player bandleader and former Pro Baseball player in Fort Myers Florida. I played on Lou's band for 2.5 years in the late 70's in house band at the Wychmere Harbor Club in Cape Cod. Lou is going strong happy to report, playing regularly at the restaurant of his daughter Sherri and son in-law Marc Neeley - Roadhouse Cafe during winter months and in the summer he plays at his son David's Roadhouse Cafe in Hyannis MA on Cape Cod. I schlepped my Hammond Sk1 organ all the way down there in hopes I could sit in with Lou for a couple of tunes but unfortunately that wasn't possible, however I shot some video of Lou and his fine group, so enjoy the music and personality of Lou Colombo, one of the all-time greats on his instrument! A little bit of flashback audio from our gig in 1978 near the end some photos, old and new from just a few days ago. Enjoy folks! sincerely, Jon Hammond *Member Local 802 Musicans Union a HammondCast http://www.HammondCast.com *Note: To hear entire episode of HammondCast 201: http://www.archive.org/details/JonHammondHammondCast201KYOURadio *Note: Members of The Lou Colombo House Band at Wychmere Harbor Club as pictured: Frank Shea drums, Lou Colombo trumpet, Jack Pena guitar, Jon Hammond B3 organ

Lou Colombo and Jon Hammond in Fort Myers Florida - rest in peace Lou

Lou Colombo and Jon Hammond in Fort Myers Florida - rest in peace Lou

Losing, and keeping, Lou Colombo: “Make Someone Happy” could have been the great horn player’s theme song
kernelpanichammondcast.blogspot.com/2012/03/losing-and-ke...
"Losing, and keeping, Lou Colombo: “Make Someone Happy” could have been the great horn player’s theme song." From Barnstable Patriot: www.barnstablepatriot.com/home2/index.php?option=com_cont...
Losing, and keeping, Lou Colombo: “Make Someone Happy” could have been the great horn player’s theme song. As we read the tributes to a life well lived, let’s remember that we can keep Lou fresh in our hearts by emulating his upbeat manner in our own lives. If you need a little inspiration in that direction, check out “Lou Colombo movie by Jon Hammond” on YouTube…. www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkqBaFIAXn4
Folks, something told me I had better get on down to see my main man Lou Colombo last week in Fort Myers FL, I played on Lou's band for 2.5 years in Cape Cod at the Wychmere Harbor Club and Thompson's Clam Bar in Harwich Port MA. It was an important time of my life and career and he was always very generous to me, kept me on my toes throwing tunes at me in all keys the music never stopped once we hit. I just saw Lou a few days ago in Fort Myers FL at the gig he was playing at his Daughter Sherri's restaurant and hub Marc Neeley - Roadhouse Cafe, he was at the top of his game, playing great as ever and looking like a million dollars. I am deeply saddened to receive terrible tragic news this morning from Lou's fine trombonist Nelson E. Foucht that Lou was tragically killed last night just 4 blocks from Roadhouse Cafe coming home from the gig. My deepest condolences to the Colombo Family, Lou's Wife Noel, daughters Lori, Sherri, David all his 6 kids, extended Family of friends and musicians. I am totally blown away, thankful that I had the opportunity to know him and play with him nightly back in the 70's and then to see and hear him again at the end of his life, thanks Lou! Here are some photos from just a few days taken by my long-time great girlfriend Jennifer and myself at his gig, R.I.P. Big Lou - Louis Colombo the greatest trumpet player bandleader baseball slugger and golfer ever! I used to go with Lou to the golf course where he had the snack concession in Yarmouth just to watch him drive balls in to outer space. I couldn't believe how far and hard he could hit the ball. Lou would put on black executioner gloves and hit the ball and it would disappear, just keep on sailing in to the sky like Lou's spirit must be now. His music and great memories will live on forever. Sincerely, Jon Hammond - Member AFM Local 802 and Local 6 Musicians Union *Note: Lou's band the other night at Roadhouse Cafe were so great, I'm so sorry cats: Nelson Foucht on trombone, F.L. "Woody" Brubaker piano and keyboard bass, Richard Iannuzzi drums and Gil DiBenedetto tenor saxophone and clarinet. Jon Hammond and Lou Colombo
*Note: Lou called me on my cell phone when I was at the airport just about to fly out of Tampa TPA Airport, he told me he really dug my album that I had given him "NDR SESSIONS Projekt" my first record of mostly standards, it was inspired much by him actually. Lou was talking about the horn players on it, Lutz Buechner and Joe "Jo" Gallardo, he really dug them and he told me we were going to do something back up in the Cape for sure. I was very touched by his call and he had called me on my previous birthday last year, I got all choked up when he told me that. Thanks a million Lou!
