I am totally devastated and heart broken, sending my deepest condolences to the Colombo Family and all his musicians and extended family and friends. Rest in Peace Lou Colombo, the greatest trumpet player who ever lived...you will seen and hear on this film I shot just days ago. In Lou's memory, thanks for everything Big Lou! Sincerely, Jon Hammond *written before Lou's passing: Jon Hammond here...I just came back from visiting my main man Lou Colombo the great trumpet player bandleader and former Pro Baseball player in Fort Myers Florida. I played on Lou's band for 2.5 years in the late 70's in house band at the Wychmere Harbor Club in Cape Cod. Lou is going strong happy to report, playing regularly at the restaurant of his daughter Sherri and son in-law Marc Neeley - Roadhouse Cafe during winter months and in the summer he plays at his son David's Roadhouse Cafe in Hyannis MA on Cape Cod. I schlepped my Hammond Sk1 organ all the way down there in hopes I could sit in with Lou for a couple of tunes but unfortunately that wasn't possible, however I shot some video of Lou and his fine group, so enjoy the music and personality of Lou Colombo, one of the all-time greats on his instrument! A little bit of flashback audio from our gig in 1978 near the end some photos, old and new from just a few days ago. Enjoy folks! sincerely, Jon Hammond *Member Local 802 Musicans Union a HammondCast http://www.HammondCast.com/ *Note: To hear entire episode of HammondCast 201: http://www.archive.org/details/JonHammondHammondCast201KYOURadio *Note: Members of The Lou Colombo House Band at Wychmere Harbor Club as pictured: Frank Shea drums, Lou Colombo trumpet, Jack Pena guitar, Jon Hammond B3 organ — at Wychmere Harbor Club.
