HammondCast 22
This episode of HammondCast on KYOU 1550 AM Radio features some historic recordings of Jon Hammond with radio & tv legend AL “JAZZBEAUX” COLLINS, this will blow your socks off! Al does a complete recitation of his Hipster version of “Little Red Ridinghood” accompanied by Jon on the Hammond organ live. Also radio host CHRIS CORTEZ talking about how Jon and Jazzbeaux almost blew up the transmitter for the radio station by plugging the Hammond organ directly in as a late-night experiment on the Bay Area station…wooops! All worked out ok, but the Chief Engineer and Station Manager were a little bit upset the next day.
Going back even a few more years, Al Jazzbeaux breaks Jon’s recording of “Sidewinder” on the now defunct but legendary and most powerful station of New York City-WNEW 1130 AM. For Al Jazzbo Collins freaks, this HammondCast episode is a MUST.
Jon Hammond is a member of Local 802 & Local 6 Musicians Unions and an ASCAP Composer/Publisher-JON HAMMOND International, Inc.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Mabern
Harold Mabern (born March 20, 1936 in Memphis, Tennessee) is a hard bop and soul jazz pianist.

Early in his career, Mabern played in Chicago with Walter Perkins’ MJT + 3 in the late 1950s[1] before moving to New York in 1959. Mabern has worked with Jimmy Forrest, Lionel Hampton, the Jazztet (1961-1962), Donald Byrd, Miles Davis (1963), J. J. Johnson (1963-1965), Lee Morgan (1965), Hank Mobley (1965), Sonny Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery, Joe Williams (1966-1967), and Sarah Vaughan. In more recent years, he has recorded extensively with his former William Paterson University student, the tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander.[2]
He performed in a video recorded session with Wes Montgomery in 1965 that is currently available on DVD as Wes Montgomery Live in ’65.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Mabern led four albums for Prestige Records, performed with Lee Morgan, and recorded with Stanley Cowell’s Piano Choir. Mabern has recorded as a leader for DIW/Columbia and Sackville and toured with the Contemporary Piano Ensemble (1993-1995).
A longtime faculty member at William Paterson University, Mabern is a frequent instructor at the Stanford Jazz Workshop.

Is Harold asleep?

Jon Hammond Harold is wide awake, he is just reclining comfortably -just told us some killin’ amazing stories about playing with Lee Morgan and he was with Lee when he died tragically / suddenly, you know the story – one of the most famous stories in Jazz, Harold was there playing with Lee that night, Jon

Barry Finnerty ·
Wow. That would not have been pleasant. To have your good friend and great trumpet player shot dead onstage right next to you by some crazed jealous woman.

Jon Hammond: You know it Barry!

By Tough Customer
Fresh version of Lee Morgan’s classic
If you love Lee Morgan’s great jazz hit song “The Sidewinder” (and who doesn’t?) you should have a listen to this fresh version featuring jazz guitar and hammond organ quoting the tune of the deceased master of swinging bop, and doing some nice improvisations too.

HammondCast 17, just back from Hamburg Germany where I recorded my new album, an official production of NDR Radio in Studio 1 with some of my all-time favorite musicians: Lutz Buchner (Sax), Joe Gallardo (Trombone), Heinz Lichius (Drums), myself-Jon Hammond (XK-3 Organ/Bass) and Engineer: Rudy Grosser in Studio 1 NDR Radio. I’ll be playing some selections rough mixes (not so rough actually!) as my Christmas gift to the listeners, and speaking of Christmas…from inside San Francisco County Jail #8 “Pod E”, a live recording of my trio’s annual Christmas Prison Show with the great tenor saxophonist Larry Schneider & Ronnie Smith Jr. on drums along with myself on keys playing the Christmas classic: “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas”. Every year I tell the ladies “And ya’ better be good!”
And from the Studio 1 NDR Sessions my original blues shuffle: No X-Cess Baggage Blues, some fine playing by Lutz on one of my favorite ballads: My One and Only Love and my theme song: “Late Rent”. Special thanks to Knut Benzner of NDR Radio for co-producing these recordings now heard on KYOU Radio, 1550 on the AM Dial.

This evening I played the early bird set with these great musicians, my all-time favorites here – L to R: The great Richard Clements jazz pianist extraordinaire, Mike Comoia the great veteran tenor saxophonist, myself Jon Hammond at the organ and one of the greatest jazz bassists in New York – Bob Cunningham, and he is a killin’ vocalist occasionally and pianist as well – special thanks to Jazz Foundation of America *Note: Photo by Greg Bandy with my camera, thanks Greg! — with Bob Cunningham at Associated Musicians of Greater New York, Local 802 AFM

Folks, I will be the #1 voter today at my polling place – got here 5AM, early shot so you know I am not messing around. In less than 45 minutes I’m going to be pulling the lever for President Obama and everybody in my building is also – I don’t know one person who is voting for the other guy. NYPD is on the scene to make sure there won’t be any hanky panky..this is the big day people! – Jon Hammond

#1 Voter at my polling place – photographic proof – Jon Hammond *Note: The scanning machine is scanning my paper ballot at 6:13AM. It is a little bit tricky, supervisor said mine was A-OK and of course I voted for President Obama and V.P. Joe Biden, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Democratic early bird voter here in New York City – JH — at Times Square

Get on down to your polling place and vote my fellow Americans! *Note: There is a tricky thing on the ballot – it says “Vote for any four” in one group of four. I had the supervisor come in and sure enough he told me that it is really “Vote for ONE of four” – he told me if I voted for all 4 it would invalidate my ballot. Take care to do it correctly folks.

Priceless Al Jazzbo Collins Movie Jon Hammond Journal August 20, 2012

*WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: Priceless Al Jazzbo Collins Movie by Jon Hammond

http://archive.org/details/AlJazzboCollinsHornAndHardartCnnBroadcastByJonHammond

Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NwfEsLvmTw

As seen on The Jon Hammond Show MCTV MNN TV cable access show with the classic opening by famous Weather Man Lloyd Lindsay Young and CNN live radio broadcast extravaganza AM 1130 WNEW All Star Show Hosted by the late great Al Jazzbo Collins aka Jazzbeaux Collins
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_%22Jazzbo%22_Collins
covered by Jon Hammond personally on May 29, 1987
Radio Hall of Fame http://www.bayarearadio.org/audio/jazzbeaux/
Incredible dialogue between Al Jazzbo Collins and Cynthia Tornquist of CNN she learns a lot from Jazzbeaux about the Purple Grotteaux and the night world of Jazz Musicians and the special people in the Al’s world. Whether Cynthia knows it or not she is being majooberized!
Jazzbo leads the famous call and response based on the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. In one scene some obviously very bad banditos try to pass themselves off to Bogart as federales (police). Humphrey Bogart’s character knows they are not federales but nevertheless asks to see some badges. The bandito-in-charge responds “Badges?! I don’t got no badges. We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ badge.”
Most special broadcast and painting of the manhole cover door to Purple Grotteaux seen world wide on CNN TV as shot by Jon Hammond personally, enjoy folks!
*Note: The phone number for BackBeat Productions running on this clip was taken over by the IRS Internal Revenue Servie after a long battle with Jon Hammond, they had a bank of numbers 340-9000, 9001 etc. so they really wanted 212-340-9007 they finally got it. If you call it now you’ll get the IRS not Jon Hammond folks! Special thanks Lew Anderson big band, Lew was Clarabell the Clown on Howdy Doody TV Show between 1954 and 1960 his music playing while Jon Hammond takes you on a tour of the food of Horn & Hardart Automat at corner of 42nd St. and Third Avenue in Manhattan just below the main studios of WNEW Radio, now 1130 is Bloomberg Radio.

– Jon Hammond
Tracy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracy_Wormworth
Tracy Wormworth is a bass guitarist working for more than 30 years in the music and television industry in the United States. She is the sister of percussionist James Wormworth.[1]
Wormworth is currently[when?] playing with The B-52s, a band that she has played with on and off for 20 years.[1] She appears as an additional artist on the sixth studio album by The B-52s, Good Stuff, released in 1992. By 2008, she was listed as a full band member on their album Funplex.
She first gained notoriety as a member of the New Wave band The Waitresses.[2] Dave Hofstra was the bass player on the first album, Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful? (even though Wormworth’s picture appears in the photo on the back cover of the album). Wormworth joined the band after he quit and stayed until the band broke up in 1984.[3]
Wormworth has served as a touring bass player for Sting and Wayne Shorter as well as the B-52s and was part of the house band on The Rosie O’Donnell Show. She makes a brief appearance in the video for the B-52s’ single “Is That You Mo-Dean?”. She is credited as a bass player on the Lena Horne album We’ll Be Together Again (1994), I Ain’t Movin’ (1994) by singer-songwriter Des’ree, and Head over Heels (1995) by Paula Abdul.
Ron Carter
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Carter
Ron Carter (born May 4, 1937) is an American jazz double-bassist. His appearances on over 2,500 albums make him one of the most-recorded bassists in jazz history, along with Milt Hinton, Ray Brown and Leroy Vinnegar. Carter is also an acclaimed cellist who has recorded numerous times on that instrument
Carter was born in Ferndale, Michigan. He started to play cello at the age of 10, but when his family moved to Detroit, he ran into difficulties regarding the racial stereotyping of classical musicians and instead moved to bass. He attended the historic Cass Technical High School in Detroit, and, later, the Eastman School of Music, where he played in its Philharmonic Orchestra. He gained his bachelor’s degree at Eastman in 1959, and in 1961 a master’s degree in double bass performance from the Manhattan School of Music.
His first jobs as a jazz musician were with Jaki Byard and Chico Hamilton. His first records were made with Eric Dolphy (another former member of Hamilton’s group) and Don Ellis, in 1960. His own first date as leader, Where?, with Dolphy and Mal Waldron and a date also with Dolphy called Out There with George Duvivier and Roy Haynes and Carter on cello; its advanced harmonies and concepts were in step with the third stream movement.
Carter came to fame via the second great Miles Davis quintet in the early 1960s, which also included Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Tony Williams. Carter joined Davis’s group in 1963, appearing on the album Seven Steps to Heaven and the follow-up E.S.P., the latter being the first album to feature only the full quintet. It also featured three of Carter’s compositions (the only time he contributed compositions to Davis’s group). He stayed with Davis until 1968 (when he was replaced by Dave Holland), and participated in a couple of studio sessions with Davis in 1969 and 1970. Although he played electric bass occasionally during this period, he has subsequently eschewed that instrument entirely, and now plays only acoustic bass. Carter was close to Davis and even revealed to an interviewer in 1966 that the famous trumpeter’s favorite color was fuchsia.[2]
Carter also performed on some of Hancock, Williams and Shorter’s recordings during the sixties for Blue Note Records. He was a sideman on many Blue Note recordings of the era, playing with Sam Rivers, Freddie Hubbard, Duke Pearson, Lee Morgan, McCoy Tyner, Andrew Hill, Horace Silver and others.
After leaving Davis, Carter was for several years a mainstay of CTI Records, making albums under his own name and also appearing on many of the label’s records with a diverse range of other musicians. Notable musical partnerships in the 70’s and 80’s included Joe Henderson, Houston Person, Hank Jones, and Cedar Walton. During the 1970s he was a member of the New York Jazz Quartet.
He appears on the alternative hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest’s influential album The Low End Theory on a track called “Verses from the Abstract”. He also appears as a member of the jazz combo the Classical Jazz Quartet.
In 1994, Carter appeared on the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as “Album of the Year” by Time Magazine. In 2001, Carter collaborated with Black Star and John Patton to record “Money Jungle” for the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album, Red Hot + Indigo, a tribute to Duke Ellington.
Carter was Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the Music Department of The City College of New York, having taught there for twenty years,[3] and received an honorary Doctorate from the Berklee College of Music, in Spring 2005 [4]. He joined the faculty of the Juilliard School in New York City in 2008, teaching bass in the school’s Jazz Studies program.
Carter made a notable appearance in Robert Altman’s 1996 film Kansas City. The end credits feature him and fellow bassist Christian McBride duetting on “Solitude”.
Ron Carter sits on the Advisory Committee of the Board of Directors of The Jazz Foundation of America as well as the Honorary Founder’s Committee.[5] Ron has worked with the Jazz Foundation since its inception to save the homes and the lives of America’s elderly jazz and blues musicians including musicians that survived Hurricane Katrina.[6]
Carter appeared as himself in an episode of the HBO series Treme entitled “What Is New Orleans.”
Carter’s authorized biography, “Ron Carter: Finding the Right Notes,” by Dan Ouellette was published by ArtistShare in 2008.
