Mr. Hammond has toured worldwide since 1991 using the incredible Sk1 organ by Hammond Suzuki..™ “Classic Hammond Sound…In A Suitcase!” The Jon Hammond Show is a funky swinging instrumental revue, featuring top international soloists. The show has universal appeal. Big Hammond orgel sound – 100% organic

“Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen?
Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).”

My favorite – Chinese Broccoli in Oyster Sauce!
aka Gai lan – Jon Hammond
“Gai lan (also written as kai-lan; Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra)[1] is the Chinese name for a vegetable that is also known as Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale. It is a leaf vegetable featuring thick, flat, glossy blue-green leaves with thick stems with flower heads, similar to but much smaller than broccoli. Broccoli and gai lan belong to the same species Brassica oleracea, but gai lan is in the group alboglabra (from Latin albus “white” and glabrus “hairless”). Its flavor is very similar to that of broccoli, but slightly more bitter. It is also noticeably stronger.
Hybrid: Broccolini is a hybrid between broccoli and gai lan, produced by Mann Packing Company, Inc. ”

Jon Hammond Band Jon Hammond Band Dear Chef Bruno Serato:

I’m so saddened to see your Anaheim White House Restaurant burned so horribly! If you need any musicians to play for rebuilding party, count Jon Hammond Band in! – Onward and Upward! – Jon Hammond

“Play 365 days HARMONICA Suzuki Musical Instruments / Hammond Organ XK-5 ‘The New Original’ – delightful scent gift from my friends from Hamamatsu-shi, Shizuoka, Japan, Jon Hammond:

“Shoyeido has continued to capture the spirit of Koh (incense) appreciation for 300 years. The master blenders at Shoyeido have been perfecting the art of blending high-quality natural ingredients into the finest incense in the world.
Our incense enhance the quality of life,
and brings a moment of relaxation to the everyday affairs.

Anaheim California — Wrapped up now at the rainiest NAMM Show I can remember since 1992, when Katella Avenue turned in to a little river – in those days we stayed 5 guys to a room in a ‘suite’ at the Heidi Inn motel which was located directly across the street from the original round Anaheim Convention Center before the posh new digs were built – good times and of course we had the best parking spot, all we had to do was cross Katella and we were there! – Jon Hammond
