New York NY — Flashback to August 1989 – Studio drummer Bernard Purdie takes the microphone on last set at Mikell’s with Jon Hammond and The Late Rent Session Men band to dedicate the performance to his children Phyllis and Anthony. Theme song for the long-running cable TV program The Jon Hammond Show “Late Rent” original composition with
Jon Hammond / Jon Hammond Band at his 1959 B3 organ
Bernard “Pretty” Purdie drums
Chuggy Carter percussion
Alex Foster alto saxophone
Barry Finnerty guitar
Camera: Panasonic PV-430D – Joe Berger
*Note: This historic clip is photographic proof that the actual location of Mikell’s was 760 Columbus Avenue at 97th and not 808 Columbus as the current Whole Foods near the old location claims, highly interesting!
This is some of the rare surviving footage from Mikell’s, in the house that night all night long was Hugh Masekela, Cornell Dupree and many musicians as Mikell’s was the traditional hang for all New York Studio Musicians until it’s closing.
