Jon’s release party for Hammond’s Bolero in Le Bar Bat

HammondCast 14 goes deep in to the Hammond Archives with a recording from my mom’s living room in 1975 we made with 2 mics and Marc Baum-t.sax, Jim Thorsen-gtr., Bob Scott-drms and myself on B3 organ/bass Also in the spirit of the upcoming holidays, a recording from my annual San Francisco County Jail Christmas show in CJ8 for the ladies with the great Larry Schneider on tenor sax, Ronnie Smith Jr.-drums and myself on keys. Also an incredible recording right off the air from my main man Al Jazzbeaux Collins breaking out my fresh recording of “Sidewinder” on defunct big-power NYC am station WNEW 1130 AM with a phoner from me..this aired at 4AM in the morning and sent me right through the roof! And a Hip-Hop recording of my tune “Head Phone”, I’m one of the earliest Rappers! Mixed & recorded by Victor Owens at Digisonic Studios featuring Marc Baum t.sax. And takin’ it on home with myself playing unaccompnied on keys & accordion the tune “I Will Wait For You”..and I WILL wait for you!..thanks for listening to HammondCast 14! Sincerely, Jon Hammond for KYOU Radio 1550 AM, San Francisco CA
