Roy Clark Television Interview with Jon Hammond just before Roy appeared on the American Eagle Awards in Nashville Tennessee during Summer NAMM Show – Roy Clark an American Living Legend and long-time member of The Grand Ole Opry and The Country Music Hall of Fame – Roy’s wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Clark

Roy Linwood Clark (born April 15, 1933) is an American country music musician and performer. He is best known for hosting Hee Haw, a nationally televised country variety show, from 1969 to 1992. Roy Clark has been an important and influential figure in country music, both as a performer and helping to popularize the genre.
During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30-million viewership for Hee Haw. Clark is highly regarded and renowned as a guitarist and banjo player, and is also skilled on classical guitar and several other instruments. Although he has had hit songs as a pop vocalist (e.g., “Yesterday, When I Was Young” and “Thank God and Greyhound”), his instrumental skill has had an enormous effect on generations of bluegrass and country musicians. He has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, since 1987[1][2] and The Country Music Hall of Fame. BIOGRAPHY: Born in Meherrin, Virginia, Clark lived as a teenager in southeast Washington, D.C., where his father worked at the Washington Navy Yard. At 14, Clark began playing banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and by age 15 he had already won two National Banjo Championships[3] and world banjo/guitar flatpick championships. He was simultaneously pursuing a sporting career, first as a baseball player and then as a boxer, before dedicating himself solely to music. At 17, he had his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
At the age of 23, Clark obtained his pilot’s license and then bought a 1953 Piper Tri-Pacer (N1132C), which he flew for many years. This plane was raffled off on December 17, 2012, to benefit the charity Wings of Hope.[4] He has owned other planes, including a Mitsubishi MU-2, Stearman PT-17[5] and Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond 1A bizjet.[6]
By 1955, he was a regular on Jimmy Dean’s Washington, D.C., television program. Dean, who valued punctuality among musicians in his band, the Texas Wildcats, fired Clark for habitual tardiness, telling him, “You’re the most talented person I’ve ever fired.” Clark married Barbara Joyce Rupard on August 31, 1957.[7] In 1960, Clark went out to Las Vegas, where he worked as a guitarist in a band led by former West Coast Western Swing bandleader-comedian Hank Penny. During the very early 1960s, he was also prominent in the backing band for Wanda Jackson—known as the Party Timers—during the latter part of her rockabilly period.[8]
When Dean was tapped to host The Tonight Show in the early 1960s, he asked Clark to appear, introducing him to a national audience for the first time. Subsequently, Clark appeared on The Beverly Hillbillies as a recurring character (actually two: he played businessman Roy Halsey and Roy’s mother, Myrtle). Once, on an episode of the Sunday evening Jackie Gleason Show dedicated to country music, Clark played a blistering rendition of “Down Home”. Later, he appeared on an episode of The Odd Couple wherein he played “Malagueña”.[9]
In 1963, Clark signed to Capitol Records and had three top ten hits. He switched to Dot Records and again scored hits. He later recorded for ABC Records, which had acquired Dot, and MCA Records, which absorbed the ABC label.
Clark as “Myrtle Halsey” on The Beverly Hillbillies, 1968.
In the mid ’60s, he co-hosted, along with Buck Owens, a weekday daytime country variety series for NBC entitled “Swingin’ Country”, which was cancelled after two seasons. In 1969, Clark and Buck Owens were the hosts of Hee Haw. The show was dropped by CBS Television in 1971 but continued to run in syndication for twenty-one more years. During its tenure, Clark was a member of the Million Dollar Band and participated in a host of comedy sketches. In 1983, Clark opened the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre in Branson, Missouri, becoming the first country music star to have his own venue there, thus beginning a trend which led to Branson becoming a center of live music performance, as it is today. Many of the celebrities who play in Branson first performed at the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre.
Clark frequently played in Branson during the 1980s and 1990s. He has since sold the venue (now owned by the Hughes Brothers and renamed the Hughes American Family Theatre) and gone back to a fairly light touring schedule, which usually includes a performance with Ramona Jones and the Jones Family Band at their annual tribute to Clark’s old Hee Haw co-star Grandpa Jones in Mountain View, Arkansas.[citation needed]
In addition to his musical skill, Clark has often displayed his talents as a comedian and actor. During his years on Hee Haw, Clark entertained with numerous comedy sketches, including a recurring feature where he played the clerk of the “Empty Arms Hotel”. Clark released several albums of his comedic performances, to varying critical acclaim and commercial success. Clark is one of the few surviving regular male cast members from the show.[citation needed]
Clark has endorsed Mosrite, Gretsch, and many other brands of guitars during his career. He currently endorses Heritage Guitars, which makes a Roy Clark model. On August 22, 1987, Clark was made a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He plays an annual benefit concert at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, the proceeds of which go to fund scholarships for aspiring musicians.[citation needed]
For many years Clark has made his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Roy Clark Elementary School in Tulsa’s Union School District was named in his honor in 1978. Fellow Oklahoma resident Mickey Mantle arranged for Clark to sing “Yesterday When I Was Young” at his funeral (which Clark did in 1995).[10]
On May 17, 2009, Clark was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with Barbara Mandrell and Charlie McCoy. On September 23, 2010, Clark sang “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch at Dodger Stadium in a game featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the San Diego Padres. On April 12, 2011, Clark was honored by the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He will be honored by the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame as Oklahoma’s Music Ambassador for Children and will be presented with a commendation from Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin.

Jon Hammond zum 27. Mal auf der Musikmesse
Nomen est omen. Der Mann heißt Hammond und spielt eine Hammond. Der Organist aus New York freut sich auf Frankfurt und lädt zur Musikmesse Warm Up Party am 9.4. in den Jazzkeller ein.
JOURNAL FRANKFURT: Was war für Sie zuerst da – die Frankfurter Musikmesse oder Auftritte im Jazzkeller?
Jon Hammond: Die Musikmesse. Ich kam 1987 zum ersten Mal nach Frankfurt, zusammen mit Joe Berger, der auf der Messe für Engl Amplifiers spielte. Wir flogen mit der Lufthansa ein und teilten uns ein Zimmer im berühmten Prinz Otto Hotel am Hauptbahnhof. Schon in der ersten Nacht stellte mir Joe den großen John Entwistle, den Bassisten von The Who vor. Es wurde eine lange Nacht, in der wir Cognac tranken und Erdnüsse knabberten in eiern Suite des Marriott Hotels. Ich habe Joe bei einer Session mit John und Ringo Starrs Sohn Zak Starkey im Dorian Grey Club gefilmt bei einer Soundcheck Party. In den ersten paar Jahren spielte ich nicht oft live weil ich noch keine transportierbare Hammond Orgel hatte vor 1991 als ich den Prototyp einer XB-2 Hammond Orgel bekam mit der ich dann um die Welt reiste. Hauptsächliche dokumenierte ich aber die Messe für meine Cable TV Show in New York, die inzwischen im 29. Jahr als The Jon Hammond Show — Music, Travel and Soft News präsentiert. Die harten Nachrichten überlasse ich CNN und den großen Networks (lacht). Vom ersten Jahr an fühlten wir uns der Musikmesse eng verbunden, haben seitdem eine tolle Zeit hier, kommen jedes Jahr wieder bis wir kleine, alte Männer sind.

Das Jazzkeller-Konzert am Vorabend der Musikmesse ist zu einer netten Tradition geworden – wie kam es dazu, was bedeutet es Ihnen und wir werden Sie dieses Jahr diesen Abend im Jazzkeller zelebrieren?
Ab 1991 lernte ich mehr und mehr Musikmesse-Menschen kennen und die mich und auch einiges von meiner Musik. Einige von ihnen ermunterten mich, doch auch für Auftritte nach Deutschland zu kommen weil es hier doch ein Interesse an Hammond-Orgel-Groove-Music gab. Mit der schon erwähnten, kleinen, kompakten aber sehr kraftvollen Orgel war das alles möglich. Zudem machte ich in New York gerade eine schwere Zeit durch, mein Vater war gestorben und ich hatte das Gefühl, einige Veränderungen könnten meinem Leben gut tun. Also kam ich nach Frankfurt mit meiner XB-2, allerdings mit einem Rückflugticket falls etwas schief gehen würde. Ich rief viele Musiker an, ließ sie wissen, ich bin jetzt da, lasst uns zusammen spielen. Das war für mich der Anfang einer langen, sehr speziellen Beziehung, vor allem zum Frankfurter Publikum nach ersten kleinen erfolgen im Jazzkeller und einer kurzen Auftritt im Hessen Report im Fernsehen. Beatrix Rief verdanke ich dieses “lucky light on me”, eine tolle Erfahrung. Seitdem nenne ich Frankfurt “My Good Luck City” und im Jazzkeller begann auch alles für mich als Musiker. Deshalb liegt mir der Club auch so nah am Herzen, deshalb hatte ich auch die Idee, meine “Musikmesse Warm Up Party” dort zu realisieren, immer in der Nacht bevor die Messe startet was zu einer schönen Tradition wurde. Im ersten Jahr, in dem ich dann auch ein wenig Sponsoring von Philip Morris bekam, konnte ich damit einige Flugtickets für befreundete Musik bezahlen. Darüber war ich sehr glücklich. Dabei rauche ich selbst gar nicht.

Wie würden Sie Ihr persönliches Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Frankfurt beschrieben?
Lassen Sie es mich so sagen: ich liebe Frankfurt und die Frankfurter waren immer gut zu mir in all den Jahren. Ich könnte ein ganzes Buch über die Zeit schreiben, in der ich in Bornheim wohnte und Nacht für Nacht in der alten Jazzkneipe in der Berliner Straße auftrat. Das war der Treffpunkt, wo auch die Musiker der HR Bigband hinkamen und es gab eine generöse Chefin in der kleinen Kneipe. Auch Regine Dobberschütz und Eugen Hahn im Jazzkeller waren wahre Jazzengel für mich, die mir so vieles ermöglichten in der Zeit. Wir konnten auch in den Studios von AFN Radio spielen, waren die einzigen Musiker, die das – mit einer Sondergenehmigung des US Militärs – durften. Für ein wenig Promotion für die Musikmesse. Wir nannten das Programm für die AFN “Profile TV “-Show “Sound Police”. Wir hatten viel Spaß. Kein Wunder also, dass ich Frankfurt als my home away from home begreife und ich mich jedes Mal wieder freue zur Musikmesse zu reisen, in diesem Jahr übrigens zum 27. Mal in Folge. Und ich bin diesmal besonders aufgeregt, heim nach Frankfurt zu kommen weil ich gerade 60 Jahre alt geworden bin.

Wer wird in diesem Jahr zum Gelingen des Konzertes mit teils komponierter, teils improvisierter Musik, so nehme ich an, beitragen und was für einen Sound wird die Band präsentieren?
Ich habe etwa 90% der Kompositionen geschrieben, die wir spielen werden. Es ist die Musik, die man auch in meiner New Yorker TV-Show hören kann und die mich mehrmals um die Welt getragen hat. Meinen Stil nenne ich “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues” und featurert die ganz wunderbaren Solisten in meine Band: Tony Lakatos, den großen ungarischen Tenorsaxophonisten, der auch Mitglied in der hr Bigband ist, dann meinen alten Freund Giovanni Gulino, diesen tollen Schlagzeuger, der schon für fast alle Großen der Szene getrommelt hat. Ich liebe diese Jungs. Als Gitarrist ist mein alten Freund und Kollege Joe Berger dabei, den man auch als The Berger-Meister kennt. Auf diese Formation bin ich wirklich stolz.

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).

#WATCHMOVIE HERE: Beacons In Jazz Award Concert Cab Calloway Bill Cosby Historic Movie New School NYC May 7 1990

Jon’s archive https://archive.org/details/BeaconsInJazzAwardConcertCabCallowayBillCosbyHistoricMovieNewSchoolNYCMay71990

by Jon Hammond

Historic evening hosted by Bill Cosby, honoring Cab Calloway with legendary musicians and graduating musicians from New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music – filmed by Jon Hammond at the request of Arnie Lawrence – this documentary is for historical purposes Commercial Use Strictly Prohibited – from the New School Archives:
*Note: Revisions to metadata notes will follow soon – Jon Hammond:
– 4th Beacons in Jazz Awards Ceremony & Concert May 7, 1990 in the little theatre on 13th St., Mayor David N. Dinkins proclaimed May 7th as Cab Calloway Day in New York – and Cab was presented The Beacons in Jazz Award by jazz historian Phil Schaap – an incredible evening with concert including Jazz Survivors Band with Panama Francis, Milt Hinton, Eddie Barefield and more legends – then a large ensemble powered by the rhythm section of Bernard Purdie with Reggie Workman bass – horn section including the late great Arnie Lawrence, also Eddie Bert, Donald Byrd – many of these cats have passed on sadly, special appearance by Little Jimmy Heath conducting and playing soprano saxophone. Julian Junior Mance at the piano with Billy Harper on tenor sax – graduating saxophonist Walter Blanding Jr. played his old saxophone held together by rubber bands for the last time that night, as Cab Calloway personally presented him with a new Yamaha tenor saxophone which he immediately played “You’ve Changed” joined by the all-star band and Little Jimmy Scott vocals – Bill Cosby hosted the entire night and participated in the music with gusto – incredible historic evening that I personally documented – the project is now back in-progress 27 years later, Jon Hammond — with Bernard Purdie and Bernard Purdie at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music
*Note from Jon Hammond: Bud DiFluri from Yamaha presented the special Yamaha tenor saxophone to Walter Blanding Jr. – which was inscribed from Cab Calloway, but actually bought and paid for by Bill Cosby. Walter eventually sold the saxophone. Anyone who knows where the instrument is or has it please contact either Jon Hammond or Bud DiFluri – Mr. DiFluri is now Professor of Marketing teaching at Nyack College.

– this was just before joining a host of legendary musicians and the first graduating class of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in the little theatre on 13th St., Mayor David N. Dinkins proclaimed May 7th as Cab Calloway Day in New York – and Cab was presented The Beacons in Jazz Award by jazz historian Phil Schaap – an incredible evening with concert including Jazz Survivors Band with Panama Francis, Milt Hinton, Eddie Barefield and more legends – then a large ensemble powered by the rhythm section of Bernard Purdie with Reggie Workman bass – horn section including the late great Arnie Lawrence, also Eddie Bert, Donald Byrd – many of these cats have passed on sadly, special appearance by Little Jimmy Heath conducting and playing soprano saxophone. Julian Junior Mance at the piano with Billy Harper on tenor sax – graduating saxophonist Walter Blanding Jr. played his old saxophone held together by rubber bands for the last time that night, as Cab Calloway personally presented him with a new Yamaha tenor saxophone which he immediately played “You’ve Changed” joined by the all-star band and Little Jimmy Scott vocals – Bill Cosby hosted the entire night and participated in the music with gusto – incredible historic evening that I personally documented – the project is now back in-progress 27 years later, Jon Hammond — with Bill Cosby, Cab Calloway, Little Jimmy Scott and Joe Williams

BGP’s Scher Out on His Own
Edited by James Sullivan, Chuy Varela Published 4:00 am, Sunday, March 28, 1999

When Bill Graham’s longtime personal assistant Rita Gentry left the late promoter’s company for Carlos Santana’s office, the company threw a going-away party. At the gathering, Vice President Danny Scher noted the gradual erosion of Bill Graham Presents personnel since its late-1997 sale to corporate consolidator SFX Entertainment, which is buying up promoters and concert venues around the country.
The people leaving BGP, Scher said, “are what I would call the DNA of the company.”
Now one more piece of the puzzle has left: Scher. Twenty-four years after Graham plucked the young promoter from Stanford — where his successful student concerts with Dave Mason, Loggins & Messina and Joan Baez were cutting into Graham’s dominance of the Bay Area concert scene — Scher has decided to strike out on his own.
Two weeks ago he threw open the doors on Dansun Productions, the small concert-promotion company he will run with his own longtime BGP associate, Lori Sun-Look. They’ll book mostly jazz acts, some in conjunction with BGP. Forthcoming shows with Los Van Van and the Afro-Cuban All-Stars will set the business in motion
It’s Scher’s true love. “I don’t necessarily want to get back into the big rock ‘n’ roll machine,” he says.
As a shareholder in Bill Graham Presents, Scher, 47, was enriched by the sale to SFX. “At this stage of my life I don’t have to do things just for the money,” he says.
As proof, he offers a labor of love scheduled for early May: He’s arranging a recording session for 90- year-old Narvin Kimball, the last surviving member of New Orleans’ original Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
“I once told Narvin, ‘If you make it to 90, give me a call.’ A few months ago the phone rang. He said, ‘This 90-year-old man has a good memory.’ ”
Over the years, Scher spearheaded some of the Graham empire’s biggest projects. One, in fact, was called the Biggest Party in History — a multifestival blowout across Texas featuring the Who, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Natalie Cole and dozens of other acts.
He also developed the Shoreline Amphitheatre — perennially one of the top-grossing venues in the country — and founded the annual New Orleans by the Bay festival.
Conversely, he suffered through some other projects, including the Seattle-area amphitheater that was to open last year but sits unused and half-completed.
Despite SFX’s initial statements to the contrary, Scher says, its presence is evident in the Bill Graham offices. “They’re definitely injecting their corporate mentality and influence into the company.
“This had to happen. Can you think of any merger where that hasn’t happened?”
The sale, he says, made his decision to leave an easy one. “I had a great run at BGP. I’m thankful I had the opportunity to work with Bill and the people there, and I have a lot to show for it. “I just felt it was time to get my groove back.”
