Story of this music and the musicians:



by


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:
