This outstanding 1989 film clip captures the excitement and up-close look at the very-first pairing up of organist JON HAMMOND’S combo with studio drummer BERNARD PURDIE playing the Lee Morgan classic "SIDEWINDER" including solo by Bernard. Bernard’s 2 children were in the house that night along with musicians including HUGH MASAKELA at MIKELL’S on Columbus & W.97th St. which was the traditional "musicians hang" in those days. Jon broke out his mint 1959 Hammond B3 for the occasion, enjoy! *More Info: www.HammondCast.com Musicians: JON HAMMOND-B3 organ, ALEX FOSTER-sax, BARRY FINNERTY-gtr., CHUGGY CARTER-perc., BERNARD PURDIE-drums *Note: Jon Hammond is Host of CBS Radio daily program "Jon Hammond’s Afternoon Slide" M-F 3PM PST KYCY/KYOU 1550 AM, 26th year TV Show and touring world wide.
