HAMMOND ARTIST JON HAMMOND AT MUSIKMESSE For 24 years, jazz organist
Jon Hammond has brought a touch of New York soul to the Musikmesse Trade show in Frankfurt, Germany with an all-star band. This year was no exception, and joining Jon and his Hammond XK-1 on the stand was Giovanni Gulino on drums, Tony Lakatos on tenor saxophone, and Jon’s long-time guitarist Joe Berger. The event was the Musikmesse Warm Up Party at the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. Here are a couple of videos from the date. We think they got it wrong–this ain’t "Warm", it’s RED HOT!!
