Jon Hammond Trio @ Smiley’s, California – USA

Jon Hammond Trio @ Smiley’s, California – USA

Jon Hammond Trio @ Smiley’s, California – USA

by Rob Howard

Jon HammondAfter an absence of 8 years, the Jon Hammond Trio returns to Smiley’s, Schooner Saloon and Hotel, Bolinas CA, on Saturday July 10th, 9pm. With organist and accordionist Jon Hammond for an evening of funky swingin’ jazz and blues music at the historic Smiley’s location are Barry Finnerty – guitar, and Jon Otis – drums.

The California Historical Society lists Smiley’s as one of only fourteen bars in the state to be in continuous existence for over 100 years. The saloon is believed to have been built in 1851 for the energetic young Captain Isaac Morgan. Captain Morgan arrived in Bolinas (or Jugville as it was known then) in 1849. Those were gold rush days, days of growth. Those were days when one gambled with one’s dreams and then watched them either shatter and splinter or be crafted and honed into realities.

Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

BOB POPYK of American Federation of Musicians INTERNATIONAL MUSICIAN Magazine profiles Jon Hammond *Member Local 802 & Local 6 BOB POPYK of AFM’s INTERNATIONAL MUSICIAN Magazine profiles JON HAMMOND in his monthly motivational column: FOCUS ! *LISTEN TO HammondCast 19 HERE:http://ia311529.us.archive.org/3/items/HammondCast_19/HammondCast19.mp3Focus International Musician Whatever Happened to Those Jazz Clubs on Every Corner? I live in a city of about 250,000 people. Vinnie Falcone, a member of Local 369 (Las Vegas, NV) who played and conducted for Frank Sinatra, and now works with Steve & Eydie and Robert Goulet, used to live and work here. That was about 35 years ago. When he wasn’t selling pianos for a local Hammond/Steinway dealer, he probably played in almost every club within a 20-mile radius of here at one time or another. There were tons of them. Falcone and I talked about this just the other day. We came up with the names of the clubs that used live music five to seven nights a week. They could be found on almost on every street corner. Now they are all gone. Jazz groups, blues bands, singles, duos, and trios were always working; and if you came up with a new group you could, in all likelihood, find a club owner who would give you a shot. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. It’s tough to make a living as a jazz musician today. But É you can make a living if you work at it. Like most things, I think it’s just a matter of wanting it badly enough. One thing I’ve found out from the readers of this column is that musicians seem to be divided into two segments: 1) musicians who won’t play anything they don’t like or any venue that doesn’t suit them; and 2) musicians who need to work because they need to pay their bills and find all kinds of ways to fill their calendar. I still get occasional letters from readers who say that it’s not their fault that they are not getting enough work. I guess then the logical question would be: whose fault is it? I really appreciate the insight of those musicians who have creative and interesting ways of finding work, and I sympathize with the musicians who need to get out there and find gigs just to pay the rent. I don’t have all the answers, but a lot of our fellow AFM members have some very good answers. One in particular is Jon Hammond, a member of Local 802 (New York City) and Local 6 (San Francisco, CA). Hammond has found a way to get his own TV show broadcast on Time Warner Cable and RCN cable access, he has produced a CD that gets airplay on jazz radio stations around the world, and he plays at Music Performance Fund (MPF) gigs on a regular basis on both coasts. He has booked himself on several European tours, played jazz clubs in Germany and many other locations in Europe, year after year, and has found a way to obtain instruments from national manufacturers for endorsements, advertising, or trial. Hammond is also a perfect example of “success being in the mind of the beholder.” When he put together his first self-booked German tour 20 years ago, he saved up enough money to fly to Europe on Pakistan Airlines. He only had $50 in his pocket when he landed there. Hammond came home 10 months later with $150 in his pocket. He was able to pay for rent, food, and everything he needed during his time on the road in Europe. He wasn’t rich, but he was happy–and he firmly believes it was also a terrific learning experience. Over the ensuing years Hammond has performed with some of the world’s top jazz musicians, and he now lives in midtown Manhattan and plays any and every job he can, on either coast. Money is not his prime motivation. He just loves to play. He makes it work, through sheer hard work, and he prides himself on being a union musician. If you are a jazz musician, perhaps you might like to ask him some questions of your own, and share some ideas. Hammond is very approachable. Ask him about how he put together his TV show, how he successfully gets radio airplay, how he lands MPF gigs, and how, through it all, he always keeps money coming in to pay the rent. He’s found a way to do state-funded programs in prisons, nursing home gigs, and casual dates in clubs. (He’s scrambled so much over the years that his new CD is called Late Rent.) Hammond does not play for free. He finds ways to get paid. He agrees that the only thing you get out of playing a free gig is the opportunity to do another free gig. I know jazz musicians can have a tough struggle, and it’s true that there simply are not as many places to play as there once were. But that is not to say that jazz players can’t find work. Venues have changed, clubs have closed, but people still want to listen to cool sounds. Jazz festivals in major cities are still popular. Radio stations still offer jazz programs. PBS stations showcase jazz artists in their programming. It’s just not as easy to make money at it as it once was, but you can still make a living. I don’t have all the answers. I think Hammond has some. I bet if you brainstorm with your fellow AFM members who specialize in jazz, you can go one better and come up with a lot of other ideas yourself. A positive attitude is obviously going to play a big part, but if you want to play jazz and make a few bucks, there are certainly ways to do it. It really is a matter of wanting to be a jazz musician badly enough. –Bob Popyk is a member of Local 78 (Syracuse, NY) and Local 47 (Los Angeles).

He drms in a jazz band at night, then tours motorcycle shops by day. “But who would have imagined,” he says, “that I’d be doing it in Shanghai!” Woody, 59, is a fixture at the Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel lounge, but his real claim to fame is a motorbike with sidecar on display in the lobby. The Chang Jiang is a Chinese knockoff of the classic 1930s BMW R-71. During World War II, the Germans gave the design to Russia, which passed it to China. Woody fell in love with it on a 1998 trip to Beijing. He bought one, and another. Soon, he had shops refurbishing them. Now he’s a top vendor of the bikes, which have a global cult following. In 2003 he sold two dozen for about $10,000 each. “It’s not really a dream job, more like a nightmare,” he quips http://www.vsidecars.com/home/current/page1/ . http://www.HammondCast.com *Jon Hammond is Host of daily CBS Radio show “Jon Hammond’s Afternoon Slide” on KYCY/KYOU 1550 AM *Official Broadcast Home of the Oakland A’s. *Note: SF’s MAYOR WILLIE BROWN was in the house, San Francisco & Shanghai are Sister Cities! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJFWMjIMh9I Danny Woody, Dwight Dickenson, HammondCast, Jazz Movie, KYCY, KYOU Radio, LaDee Streeter, Portman, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, B3 organ, XB-2, XK-1, XK-3c, Suzuki, NDR Jazz, Blues, Hammond Artist, Local 802 Musicians UnionJON HAMMOND Instruments: Organ, Accordion, Piano, Guitar Attended: Berklee College of Music 1974 Languages: English, German *Jon is currently Host of daily CBS radio program HammondCast on KYOU & KYCY 1550 AM, 7 days a week at 4AM PST. *Performing solo in Hospitals, Nursing Homes regularly.

3 VideoStandel Artist Amplifiers Still Live Today, this just in from Danny Sage McKinney Tech Talk from Jon Hammond of HammondCast KYOU Radio Folks, Jon Hammond here in New York City today, every day I play my Hammond XK-3 organ through an older Solid State Standel The Artist X Amplifier which looks like hell now but still sounds great. I know that over the years Standel amps have been the choice of top players such as Wes Montgomery and Chet Atkins *see Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standel I contacted Danny Sage McKinney yesterday who keeps the legacy of Bob Crooks Standel Musical Instrument Amplifiers Company going today in Los Angeles CA http://www.standelamps.com/about_us/story/index.html and he kindly got right back to me personally with the following information about my trusty old Standel Amp, as follows: “Hi Jon, Your Standel was built in 1965/66. It has 40 watts of power output (80 watts is power consumption with the amp being 50% efficient) and four ten-inch Jensen speakers. Hope that helps. All the best, Danny “Sage” McKinney The Standel Co.” The Amp (sounds way better than it looks folks): (original casters) Back of Amp, notice information is scratched on the plates with a tool Close up image Standel The Artist X with spring reverb and tremelo I first came in to contact with Standel amps when I shared a rehearsal space in San Francisco with the band Quicksilver Messenger Service. John Cipollina one of the 2 guitarists (Gary Duncan was other guitarist) had a very unique set up in our rehearsal hall on Harrison St. SF, incorporating 6 Fender Twin Reverb Amps, 4 Fender Dual Showman heads and 2 big 2 x 15″ Standel amps on either side with similar front panel configuration to my Artist model. He also had his rig going through brass high frequency horns. It was loud and it sounded good! I got my Standel amp at Silver & Horland music shop on 48th St. in NYC in the late 70’s for 90 bucks and it’s still working today. Yesterday we featured some of the lost tapes of our good friend Les Paul R.I.P. *WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: http://ia360703.us.archive.org/8/items/JonHammondTheLostLesPaulTapes1988fromJonHammondShow/TheLostLesPaulTapes1988.m4v The Lost Les Paul Tapes 1988 from Jon Hammond Show – Recorded April 4, 1988 NYC As seen on The Jon Hammond Show MCTV a 1988 performance of Les Paul Trio at Fat Tuesday’s NYC “There’s No Place Like Home” dedicated to Les’ Mom aka “Sniff Along With Les” hilarious commentary from Les. *note from Jon Hammond: apology for some slight tracking variance, the historic nature of these previously lost tapes determine I broadcast this again in Les’ memory.

This was a very special place frequented by all the musicians after there gigs.

Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. I did and now this record is for you! On November 5th, 2002 at 11:00 hours I entered in to Studio “D” of UNIQUE RECORDING STUDIOS in Times Square NYC with my producer/engineer Joe Berger along with S.F.Bay Area musicians Ronnie Smith (drums) and Alex Budman (tenor sax). I had just come back from performing in Shanghai at the first MUSIC CHINA. My mission was clear…because of all our busy schedules and logistical problems, we had a 4 hour window to play down 13 of my original composition live to Pro Tools recording format with Joe Berger at the controls, ably assisted by Health Aiken. From the first tune i knew that this would be my best record ever. Twelve of the tracks made this record and the 13th will be on the next record! As I was telling the musicians…on this record each of us is larger that life. Iam very proud to feature the underiable pocket feel of Ronnie Smith, the great left-handed funk drummer from East Oakland. Also it is my pleasure to feature on the finest and most musical tenor saxophonists to come out of the Bay Area in a long time: Alex Budman. The incredible guitar work features my long-time partner Joe Berger (Ham-Berger Productions). Joe has played with John Entwistle, Vangelis and many greats, plus he is responsible for the fine sound of this recording and mastering Joe joined the band on tracks 1 & 3, title song Hammond’s Bolero and Cannonball 99. Bobby and Joanne Nathan’s Unique Recording Studios was the perfect studio and environment for our live recording. Special thanks to Bobby and Joanne and the Unique staff! I fired up the house HAMMOND organ and felt right at home immediately. Although we cut these tunes in one session, (a new speed record at Unique Recording Studios!). It took my whole life to refine my songs and get to this point where I was ready to record them…and ALSO to select musicians who could not only play their a*ses off, but are very nice cats who play my music with much enthusiasm and uplifting spirit. Like all bandleaders I have had more than my share of nightmare situations with “difficult” musicians so I am always happy when I can record and play with trouble-free musicians on the ban! These are the guys. This was Ronnie’s first trip to New York City. The night before our session he and Alex went to hear the Village Vanguard Monday Night Bigband while I stayed home in my Times Square apartment preparing the music for the sessions. I have plenty to be thankful for this year and so I would like to thank all of the people who helped me somehow to make this album of my compositions a reality. It’s been a long time coming even though we recorded it in record time. Please read my special thanks and if i somehow omitted your name and you know you belong on the list, please forgive me as my mind gets a little cloudy teh older I get, but I didn’t really f 5/28/10 Free View In iTunes

An evening of funky swingin’ jazz and blues music at the historic Smiley’s location

Smileys Schooner Saloon

41 Wharf Road
BolinasCA 94924

ph: 415-868-1311 

“The California Historical Society lists Smiley’s as one of only fourteen bars in the state to be in continuous existence for over 100 years. The saloon is believed to have been built in 1851 for the energetic young Captain Isaac Morgan. Captain Morgan arrived in Bolinas (or Jugville as it was known then) in 1849. Those were gold rush days, days of growth. Those were days when one gambled with one’s dreams and then watched them either shatter and splinter or be crafted and honed into realities.”

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  (Redirected from Barry finnerty)
Michael Barry Finnerty (born December 3, 1951) is an American jazz guitarist, keyboardist, and bassist, best known for his work as a session musician for artists like Miles Davis and the Crusaders. He is also the author of two books on music improvisation.
Finnerty is the son of Obie Award-winning actor Warren Finnerty (1924-1974), who appeared in numerous films including Cool Hand Luke and Easy Rider.

[edit]Early years

Barry Finnerty was born in San Francisco and raised on the West Coast, studying at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the University of California Berkeley.
He spent some time living in Hong Kong with his mother in the early 60’s. There, at age 14, he began playing electric guitar and soon joined a band that opened a show for Herman’s Hermits. On returning to San Francisco, he became friends with fellow guitarist Jim Checkley, who eventually recruited him to join Beefy Red in 1969. He played in the band for several years.[1]

[edit]Finnerty in New York City

He moved to New York City after attending Berklee College of Music for a short time in 1971. In 1974 he began playing with Chico HamiltonAirto Moreira, and Flora Purim. In 1975 he became a member of theJoe Farrell quartet, and later in the decade played with Hubert LawsTower of PowerThad Jones and Mel Lewis, and Ray Barretto.
Finnerty played and recorded with Michael Brecker and Randy Brecker (1977-81) and The Crusaders (1979-84), in addition to touring in Europe with Billy Cobham in 1980. He played and recorded with Miles Davis in 1981, and is mentioned in the Davis autobiography.
Barry Finnerty: “






WHITE ONIONS was co-written by myself and organist Jon Hammond and is on his debut 1996 Hot Wire release “Late Rent”. As is often the case when we write together, he came up with the basic groove and form and I added a melody. After we wrote it, the groove reminded us of “Green Onions” by Booker T & the MG’s, so we decided to call it “White Onions”. Drummer Bernard Purdie thought it was a bit much when I started introducing the tune as being about “onions of the Caucasian persuasion”, but after I convinced him that no racial slur was intended, the title stayed!”

Recreating LATE RENT CD Product

Some notes about the LATE RENT product you are holding in your hand: They say history repeats itself. In the case of LATE RENT it is partially true, but now in 2005 I have taken the opportunity to take control of my music and visuals bringing them to you in the absolute highest quality thanks to my outstanding team of specialists. It has been a long road with many detours along the way but thankfully all the master recordings are intact and I was able to locate the photos which artist Michael August has shaped in to a creation that conveys the look of my tv show and tells you many things about this music before you even open the box. Hammond B3 freaks will not be disappointed. Joe Berger preserved the master recordings well. 25 years have passed from the start of this project with the first recordings. I am happy to say that now today my Rent is NOT Late! And the music of LATE RENT is available for the Ring Tones on your Phones. We appreciate your feedback by phone, email or good old fashioned snail-mail. Jon & Late Rent Team

HAMMOND ARTIST JON HAMMOND AT MUSIKMESSE For 24 years, jazz organist
Jon Hammond has brought a touch of New York soul to the Musikmesse Trade show in Frankfurt, Germany with an all-star band. This year was no exception, and joining Jon and his Hammond XK-1 on the stand was Giovanni Gulino on drums, Tony Lakatos on tenor saxophone, and Jon’s long-time guitarist Joe Berger. The event was the Musikmesse Warm Up Party at the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. Here are a couple of videos from the date. We think they got it wrong–this ain’t “Warm”, it’s RED HOT!!

Jimmy Smith at 2005 IAJE

*Note: A sad note about the passing of Jimmy Smith, Feb. 9 2005 in Scottsdale AZ just one month after receiving NEA Jazz Masters Award. Jon Hammond said about Jimmy Smith: “He played more organ with one hand tied behind his back than many others!” His left side had been compromised for some time but he still out-grooved with right hand.

Igor Butman & Gary Walker (WBGO Program Director/Host)

March 5th 2004, Friday morning bright and early at 7 in the morning, Igor Butman and I met at Port Authority Bus Station and I took Igor out to WBGO radio studios to be a special guest on Gary Walker’s morning broadcast. Here they are pictured outside the WBGO www.WBGO.org studios located at 54 Park Place in downtown Newark NJ. Gary had such a good time interviewing his old friend Igor that he stayed on the air 15 minutes past the normal end of his show. Later Igor and I spent a good part of the day kicking around the music stores on W.48th St. where Igor stocked up on supplies for his bigband members back in Moscow before his quartet gig in the evening at Birdland. I’ll be back in Moscow to play with Igor this coming July *link:http://community.webtv.net/GoldenPenMan/BLUESINTHEMOSCOW

Jon Hammond-RESUME

Born: Chicago 1953
Instruments: Organ, Accordion, Piano
Attended: Berklee College of Music, Boston 1974. Currently studying International Business on Internet at City College of San Francisco under Professor Bruce Lilienthal
Languages: English, German

Musician: Jon has played professionally since age 12. Beginning as a solo accordionist, he later played Hammond B3 organ with a number of important San Francisco bands. His all-original rock group “Hades” opened shows for Tower of Power, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Michael Bloomfield. Eddie Money and Barry Finnerty became musical associates.
Moving east, he attended Berklee and played venues as diverse as Boston’s “Combat Zone” and the exclusive Wychmere Harbor Club in Cape Cod, where he was house organist and developed a lasting friendship with House Speaker Tip O’Niel. He also toured the Northeast and Canada with the successful show revue “Easy Living”, and continued his appearances at nightclubs in Boston and New York. Subsequently Hammond lived and traveled in Europe, where he has an entusiastic following.

TV/Video Producer: In 1981 Jon formed BackBeat Productions. Assisted by Lori Friedman (Video by LORI), the innovative TV show became a Manhattan Cable TV favorite. Jon’s “Live on the Street” video style included news events, as well as live music/video clips of Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Butterfield Jaco Pastorious, John Entwistle, Sammy Davis Jr. and Percy Sledge. The weekly show ran uninterupted for 21 years and influenced the broadcasts of David Letterman and others. Billboard Magazine hailed Jon’s show as “The Alternative to MTV”. The Jon Hammond Show can be seen worldwide at various times from www.MNN.org on Channels 56 and 108 in Manhattan.

Media Personality: Host and narrator of his TV show, as well as co-host of numerous radio braodcasts, Jon has defined a musical and personal style that is unmistakable. As Musical Director, Producer and Host of The Jon Hammond Show, Mr. Hammond formed a unique multi-media music group. This spring they will return to Europe to perform at the Frankfurt Musikmesse for 22nd year Jubilee! Hammond has produced a live Sennheiser Microphone CD release, and played throughout Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and Czech Republic.
October 16th 2002 Mr. Hammond performed in duo together with FangLin, the Chinese accordion champion sensation to inaugurate the new international trade show-MUSIC CHINA at the official opening reception in Shanghai China!

Description: “The Jon Hammond Show” is a funky, swinging Jazz instrumental revue, featuring notable international soloists and reflecting the influences of The Crusaders, Miles Davis, and Jimmy Smith. The show has universal appeal.

Members of the “Jon Hammond Show” house band have included David “Fathead” Newman, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Alex Foster and Cornell Dupree.

BOB POPYK of AFM’s INTERNATIONAL MUSICIAN Magazine profiles JON HAMMOND in his monthly motivational column: FOCUS !

Focus
International Musician, July 2005
Whatever Happened to Those Jazz Clubs on Every Corner?
I live in a city of about 250,000 people. Vinnie Falcone, a member of Local 369 (Las Vegas, NV) who played and conducted for Frank Sinatra, and now works with Steve & Eydie and Robert Goulet, used to live and work here.
That was about 35 years ago.
When he wasn’t selling pianos for a local Hammond/Steinway dealer, he probably played in almost every club within a 20-mile radius of here at one time or another. There were tons of them.
Falcone and I talked about this just the other day. We came up with the names of the clubs that used live music five to seven nights a week. They could be found on almost on every street corner. Now they are all gone. Jazz groups, blues bands, singles, duos, and trios were always working; and if you came up with a new group you could, in all likelihood, find a club owner who would give you a shot. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. It’s tough to make a living as a jazz musician today. But É you can make a living if you work at it. Like most things, I think it’s just a matter of wanting it badly enough.
One thing I’ve found out from the readers of this column is that musicians seem to be divided into two segments: 1) musicians who won’t play anything they don’t like or any venue that doesn’t suit them; and 2) musicians who need to work because they need to pay their bills and find all kinds of ways to fill their calendar.
I still get occasional letters from readers who say that it’s not their fault that they are not getting enough work. I guess then the logical question would be: whose fault is it?
I really appreciate the insight of those musicians who have creative and interesting ways of finding work, and I sympathize with the musicians who need to get out there and find gigs just to pay the rent. I don’t have all the answers, but a lot of our fellow AFM members have some very good answers.
One in particular is Jon Hammond, a member of Local 802 (New York City) and Local 6 (San Francisco, CA). Hammond has found a way to get his own TV show broadcast on Time Warner Cable and RCN cable access, he has produced a CD that gets airplay on jazz radio stations around the world, and he plays at Music Performance Fund (MPF) gigs on a regular basis on both coasts. He has booked himself on several European tours, played jazz clubs in Germany and many other locations in Europe, year after year, and has found a way to obtain instruments from national manufacturers for endorsements, advertising, or trial.
Hammond is also a perfect example of “success being in the mind of the beholder.” When he put together his first self-booked German tour 20 years ago, he saved up enough money to fly to Europe on Pakistan Airlines. He only had $50 in his pocket when he landed there. Hammond came home 10 months later with $150 in his pocket. He was able to pay for rent, food, and everything he needed during his time on the road in Europe. He wasn’t rich, but he was happy–and he firmly believes it was also a terrific learning experience.
Over the ensuing years Hammond has performed with some of the world’s top jazz musicians, and he now lives in midtown Manhattan and plays any and every job he can, on either coast. Money is not his prime motivation. He just loves to play. He makes it work, through sheer hard work, and he prides himself on being a union musician.
If you are a jazz musician, perhaps you might like to ask him some questions of your own, and share some ideas. Hammond is very approachable. His phone number is (212) 967-1858. Ask him about how he put together his TV show, how he successfully gets radio airplay, how he lands MPF gigs, and how, through it all, he always keeps money coming in to pay the rent. He’s found a way to do state-funded programs in prisons, nursing home gigs, and casual dates in clubs. (He’s scrambled so much over the years that his new CD is called Late Rent.) Hammond does not play for free. He finds ways to get paid. He agrees that the only thing you get out of playing a free gig is the opportunity to do another free gig.
I know jazz musicians can have a tough struggle, and it’s true that there simply are not as many places to play as there once were. But that is not to say that jazz players can’t find work.
Venues have changed, clubs have closed, but people still want to listen to cool sounds. Jazz festivals in major cities are still popular. Radio stations still offer jazz programs. PBS stations showcase jazz artists in their programming. It’s just not as easy to make money at it as it once was, but you can still make a living.
I don’t have all the answers. I think Hammond has some. I bet if you brainstorm with your fellow AFM members who specialize in jazz, you can go one better and come up with a lot of other ideas yourself. A positive attitude is obviously going to play a big part, but if you want to play jazz and make a few bucks, there are certainly ways to do it. It really is a matter of wanting to be a jazz musician badly enough.

There I am with Lazy Larry under the giant DiamondVision screen Times Square. My show appeared for 3.5 minutes 80 times daily for one year. Plus we did a super psychedelic countdown for New Years Eve that was seen by millions around the world. After wishing the people Happy New Year!, The screen said, “Watch THE JON HAMMOND SHOW Friday nights at 6pm on MCTV!

Artist depiction by Harburg Artist Michael August

Michael painted this picture of me from a concert I did in the famous REGINA STRIPTEASE CLUB on Gr. Freiheit , Reeperbahn Hamburg. The place was packed upstairs and downstairs after Knut Benzner got us a nice press article in the Mo Po!

Main Man KNUT BENZNER at NDR Radio Hamburg!

There’s Knut in the studio of NDR cutting his “Jazz All Blues” Show together. Knut was my sponsor for 2 years in Hamburg. On the radio, he sounds like the voice of God!

Jon Hammond Show in the Field

There I am in New York City with my black BMW R100RT and one of the first prototype Sony Betacams from Sony Broadcast on loan to us for field testing on The JH Show.

My White Grand Piano in Pacific Heights S.F.!

There I am with my Artist’s Model C3 Conservatory Size 6 foot Yamaha Grand Piano that I bought from Peter Frampton (he had 3 pieces).
That was my only furniture in the apartment. Just the white piano, a Hammond B3 and an accordion and futon. I did a lot of my writing on that piano.

6 months at old Trident in Sausalito on the water!

Tenor saxophonist Bennett Friedman, James Preston drums and Terry Haggerty guitar (of Sons of Champlin) JH at org. This was the original club built by the Kingston Trio (If I Had A Hammer and Michael Row the Boat Ashore). The Trident was a favorite party place for the Rolling Stones and other famous hipsters. Now called Horizons Restaurant…you can tie up your 150 foot boat right outside the window!

Jon and Eddie Money at top Empire State Building!

Here we are in sub-zero temperature on very top observation deck of Empire State Building. I used to take a 2-way radio up there and broadcast promos for up-coming gigs around New York City…good place to broadcast from!

Hammond with PICO and Star Club survivors St. Pauli Hamburg!

There I am with Pico, when I played on his show about his life working at the legendary Star Club with the Beatles, Rattles, Chuck Berry and others on the Reeperbahn. This guy was the original deal. He is still there working on the Deutsche Bundesbahn and living on the Hein Hoyer Str. in St. Pauli. Amazing guy and life story. I met some of the originals playing there at the Delphi Music Theatre.

First trip to Paris in 1981!

There I am taking care of business in my room at the 5 star L’hotel in Paris France in 1981. This is the place where Oscar Wilde lived out his last days. A favorite low key place where the Rolling Stones and others like to stay. There is no sign indicating it is a hotel. You will see only the golden ram’s head above the door on Rue de Beaux Arts in St. Germain on the left bank.

Dinner for 1 downstairs at L’hotel!

The tree grows right up through the ceiling, and it is like a Fellini movie in there at night. I enjoyed every bite of that meal…perfectly content to enjoy my own company there in my Armani suit. I used to dress up every day for no particular reason back in those days!

On the Job at John’s Place in Saarbucken Germany!

This was one of my first steady gigs in Germany in 1991, at a place called John’s Place in Saarbrucken on Bleich Str. It is very near the French border there, and there was a healthy mix of German and French people in the after hours place. I am wearing my lucky tie there and my father’s white shirt for good luck!

Scene from the stage at Jazzkeller Frankfurt 1992!

That’s how it looked from the stage of my show at the famous Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. The show was sponsored by Philip Morris Tobacco. I don’t smoke, but they gave me cartons of cigarettes to give away, all my friends in Germany were overjoyed to receive free cigarettes! The place was packed…Herb Ellis is sitting in the front row. That’s my friend Tino holding the video camera at right.

Broadcasting on pirate Radio Tomate Paris France!

There I am speaking to the French on legendary pirate Radio Tomate in a secret location in Paris. The pirates there actually were squatting in the building. They were very creative…the electricity was brought in and phone lines from unknown sources. The place was manned 24 hours a day. This was in 1981 when the Socialist government was still in power.

Onstage at original legendary FILLMORE!

There I am on the bandstand of the original Fillmore Auditorium with bandmates Barry Finnerty and James Preston. The original location where I had seen so many fantastic shows as a teenager…right there at corner of Geary Blvd. & Fillmore S.F., Cal.
Took me 30 years to get the gig there!
We were on the bill with The Sons of Champlin (James is also drummer of Sons) Friday June 4th, 1999. The Fillmore was closed for a long time, but it was lovingly restored by the BGP people in 1994 as a tribute to founder Bill Graham. I was there at the opening party, invited by my old friend Bob Barsotti. It was a great party! Bob doesn’t forget his old friends….he sent us a beautiful bottle of Moet Champagne in a bucket of ice with a nice card to our dressing room when we played this gig. I will never forget that gig. The audience was very responsive, and it fulfilled every expectation to be there playing on that very special stage.

Hootenanny for KPFA Radio 1966!

Here I am in a press photo for one of my earliest gigs…a HOOTENANNY for Pacifica Radio Station KPFA in Berkeley California. When was the last time you were at a Hootenanny?!

October 1968 Berkeley California

Here I am during my radical Vietnam War protesting days in 1968!

Flower Power…1969!

16 years old, and I was a super freak..free as a bird!
I feel sorry for those who never got to experience the free spirit of those times. We had very little to worry about. Everything was cheap, there was no Aids and the ladies seemed to like my curly hair. That year I was made in to a cartoon character in a comicbook about Natural Hair Care put out by Rolling Stone Magazine. I thought I would be retired by the age of 25…boy, was I wrong!

1971 HADES, original rock band

HADES means HELL, and we were 4 little devils. There we are pictured in the grave yard in El Cerrito California. L. to R. Steve Wright, Jim Thorsen, Dave Danza, JH. All our material was original and we used to practice 5 days a week in a garage where our road crew lived. We had a truck with Hades license plates, a good sound system, 2 roadies and a manager, Jerry Figgoni. This was one of the tightest bands out of the East Bay. We played very often at a hot rock club in those days called, The Longbranch Saloon on San Pablo Ave. in Berkeley. We came very close to some big success with Hades, but then it finally broke up.
