Jon Hammond’s Journal, Bill Cunningham photographer goes Digital! Cable Access Producer in the Field

Jon Hammond: I’ve been seeing NY Times’ Bill Cunningham since 1986 up on the corner of 57th St. and Fifth Avenue taking pictures, and recently I noticed he is shooting a digital Nikon camera – welcome to the digital world Bill Cunningham! – JH

New York NY — Famous People Photograper Bill Cunningham who shoots almost daily on corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th St. This is a guy who shoots people candidly, yet he has an aversion to being on-camera himself. He is quite adept at slinking away and moving in back of you anytime your lens levels off in his direction. I’ve seen the man for years and he has always done that, my first shots of him date back to 1985. Here I got him on-camera just this morning – Bill Cunningham shot by Jon Hammond
William J. Cunningham (born March 13, 1929) is a fashion photographer for The New York Times, known for his candid and street photography.

Cunningham dropped out of Harvard University in 1948 and moved to New York, where he initially worked in advertising. Not long after, he quit his job and struck out on his own, making hats under the name “William J.” After being drafted (causing his business to fold) and serving a tour in the U.S. Army, he returned to New York and got a job writing for the Chicago Tribune.

Organ Meets Bigband in The Zeughaus Wismar – Camera: Heinz Lichius Am 30.07.2015 ist das Landesjugendjazzorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LaJazzO MV) mit seinem diesjährigen Solisten Jon Hammond in der Hansestadt Wismar zu Gast.
Nachdem sich in den vergangenen Jahren das LaJazzO MV mit den in der Big Band vorkommenden Instrumenten musikalisch auseinandersetzte, wird in 2015 die Jazzorgel musikalisch thematisiert werden. Unter dem Titel “Organ meets Big Band” wird dieses sehr traditionsreiche Instrument der Jazzgeschichte in den Mittelpunkt der Konzertreihe im folgenden Jahr gestellt. Als Jazzinstrument wurde es von Fats Waller in den 30er Jahren eingeführt und hatte seine Hochzeit in den 50er Jahren durch seine Vertreter wie Jimmy Smith. Der international renommierte New Yorker Jazzorganist Jon Hammond wird zusammen mit dem LaJazzO MV unter der Leitung von Michael Leuschner den besonderen Charme dieses Instrumentes wieder zum Leben erwecken. Im Programm sind unter anderem Titel von Jimmy Smith, arrangiert von Steve Grey – eine Leihgabe aus dem Archiv der NDR-Bigband.

Jon Hammond studierte in den siebziger Jahren am Berklee College of Music und am City College San Francisco. Konzertreisen führten ihn quer durch die Vereinigten Staaten und Kanada. In seiner eigenen ‘Jon Hammond Show’ spielte er mit Musikern wie Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Butterfield, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, Sammy Davis Jr., Percy Sledge und vielen anderen. Auch in Europa fand und findet seine Musik unverändert viele Anhänger. Die Medien berichten wiederholt von einem unverwechselbaren und prägenden Sound. Jon Hammond hat u.a. auf der 20. Frankfurter Musikmesse mitgewirkt und tritt vornehmlich in Hamburg auf. “The Jon Hammond Show” is a funky, swinging Jazz instrumental revue, featuring notable international soloists and reflecting the influences of Miles Davis, The Crusaders and Jimmy Smith.

Programm: “Organ meets Bigband”
Leitung: Michael Leuschner
Donnerstag, d. 30.07.2015, 19:00 Zeughaus Wismar
with Elli Soosz, Jan Rolle, Daniel Be, Leon Saleh, Gabriel Rosenbach, Michael Leuschner, Heinz Lichius, Matthis Rasche, Hörni Thorun, Paul Gramkow, Marie Birkholz, Jan Boge, Ole Si, Elisabeth Guericke, Nane Schüßler, Henning Schiewer, Noah Jens, Oliver Herlitzka, Anne-Katrin Meyer and Al Tobias at Zeughaus Wismar
