Red Square as seen from Jon's 6th floor hotel room in the old Hotel Rossiya at midnight late June, notice there is still light in the sky!:  


Most of the day I stayed in the room practicing my instrument and looking out at Red Square. We wanted to get to the club early so that we could get a sound check and settle in. Faina picked us up and we stuffed my organ and all our equipment in her compact car and off we went to Le Club in the Taganka Theatre Building.

When we arrived the big friendly doormen picked up my heavy cases like they were toothpicks and brought them up the stairs for me! Vladimir the sound engineer for the club was very smooth and professional, and a very nice guy. We got a good sound on the organ and then came Eduard Zizak the great drummer! I had already met Eduard in New York the week before when he was there performing with Igor's quartet at Birdland. Eduard is an incredible drummer and also a very nice guy. We made a little soundcheck and right away I could tell that he had listened to my music and we would lock up with some very tight grooves...no problem!

But where was Igor? I was hoping for a little mini-rehearsel with Igor but when I saw the public coming in to have dinner I knew it was too late for that! Igor arrived with his entourage and it was great to see him...he told me not to worry and apologised for not coming earlier. Igor is in big demand with a very busy schedule, so I am very lucky and honored that he could take the time to perform with me together even as his new cd album "Prophecy" was just released on the Universal Label.

We had time only for a 5 minute soundcheck and I showed Igor my book. This was going to be a very spontaneous performance, no doubt about it!

We decided to record it, and Vladimir did a fantastic job on the recording on their new digital recording console that they had just brought back from New York.

From the first notes I knew that this would be one of those magic nights I would never forget. The response from the audience was wonderful. I could only say in Russsian, "Ya LuBlu Vas"...which means, I love you all. And when I said the words to the people I got a great feeling back from them. First set was just fine and then on the break I was introduced to many press people and some fantastic local musicians. I was very honored that they all came to greet me. And then Igor proudly introduced me to 2 of the legendary jazz musicians of Moscow-accordionist Vladimir Danilin and guitarist Organist Jon Hammond Blues in The Moscow White Nights special guests accordionist Vladimir Danilin plus Aleksey Kuznetsov. They said they had their instruments in the car and so yes we decided right away to make a live session together.

It was incredible from the first song on the 2nd set, playing together with these fantastic Moscow musicians! It felt like we had been playing together for 20 years. These musicians are some of the greatest I have ever heard and played together with. The audience was loving every bit of it, just as much as I! I was so happy that Vladimir was getting it all on tape and Jennifer was also running the video machine and taking pictures also. By the end of the night I was very satisfied with how everything went. Igor personally drove Jennifer and I back to the hotel in his nice car with fantastic sound system.

Great night!

Recording my Jazz Combo on Nakamichi 550 Cassette Field Recorder with Sennheiser Microphones Analog


#WATCHMOVIE HERE: Recording my Jazz Combo on Nakamichi 550 Cassette Field Recorder with Sennheiser Microphones Analog Audio for Video

Jon Hammond at his 1959 Hammond B3 organ + Custom super Leslie speaker built for Jon by Bill Beer Keyboard Products with all JBL speaker and horn components. Audio recorder: Nakamichi 550 dual-tracer cassette field recorder, 2 channels + Blend Channel. 3 Sennheiser microphones. Session recorded in The Ellington Room New York City. Jon uses his Nakamichi HD 25-1 Headphones also in photo:


Story of this music and the musicians:


Jon Hammond 

For my friends in the Nakamichi Audiophile Group:
I used good old Maxell Type II cassette tapes for this live recording date I personally recorded on my Nakamichi
550, which I am the original owner purchaser of - I plunked down $550 
cash for my Nak at Harvey Electronics on W. 45th Street NYC in 1976 - I 
made this recording with 3 Sennheiser
microphones placed around the bandstand in the Ellington Room - the 
tune "No X-Cess Baggage Blues" I wrote for my friends at PIA Pakistan International Airlines  - they very kindly let me take excess baggage on numerous flights I made with them out of John F. Kennedy International Airport - when you play Hammond Organ, it's impossible to travel light. I go way back with all of these fine musicians - that's Chuggy Carter on the percussion - Ray Grappone drums - Joe Berger aka Joe Berger2 in the string section on his custom built JJ Guitars - tenor saxophonist Todd Anderson, Todd was my teacher for arranging and composition back in 1973 at the Berklee College of Music
in Beantown MA - Todd is also on my very first album 'Late Rent' one of
New York's finest - all these cats are veteran players and studio 
musicians, and I have been around the block a few times myself - yours' 
truly Jon Hammond at my 1959 Hammond B3 organ and covering the bass as well - through my custom built Bill Beer super high-power Leslie speaker with all JBL
speaker and horn components - enjoy! *Note: When I'm talking, the audio
is back to the vid tape - I just plugged an SM-58 in to a little Fender Amp Can battery powered amp - back to basics and analog, big thanks to Willy Hermann Services William Hermann Jr. got my intermittent left channel working! - Jon Hammond Band
- the "Blend Mic" '3rd channel' Nakamichi system gives a unique 3 
dimensional sound to live audio recordings - that's why even today the 
old Grateful Dead heads crave these machines - can't beat it - and you get real good at flipping cassettes! - JH

Times Square, New York City
Here I am with one of my all-time heroes, the honorable Terence Hallinan

  Nakamichi 550 Versatile Cassette System The first to make high fidelity on location cassette recording a reality, the 550 is now in use around the world by musicians   

Enjoy this AUDIO program folks - even better with Sennheiser headphones on! I use Sennheiser HD 25 every day & night - Jon Hammond:

Back in to a super real film camera, compact Ricoh GR1s - I had put it away for 10 years. Shooting up some Kodak film now, pictures will be forthcoming when I get back to see my friends at B&H Photo Video Pro Audio NYC - Jon Hammond
Thanks Cha Levias for hooking me up with a fresh photo cell batt at the excellent Looking Glass Photo shop, the flash is amazingly poppin' now! Gotta' put on my sunglasses!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricoh_GR_film_cameras
