The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. "Late Rent" draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists. It shows why the Hammond organ is one of the most enduring electric instruments and why Hammond is one of its best players."

Hamburg Germany Elbe Tunnel (1911) Down under the Elbe River in the Old Elbe Tunnel - Jon Hammond Light ears away Elbe Tunnel Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbe_Tunnel_(1911) Old Elbe Tunnel or St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel (German: Alter Elbtunnel (coll.) or St. Pauli Elbtunnel (official name)) which opened in 1911, is a pedestrian and vehicle tunnel in Hamburg, Germany. The 426 m (1,398 ft) long tunnel was a technical sensation; 24 m (80 ft) beneath the surface, two tubes with 6 m (20 ft) diameter connect central Hamburg with the docks and shipyards on the south side of the river Elbe. This meant a big improvement for tens of thousands of workers in one of the busiest harbours in the world.

A sideman for many other jazz musicians of his generation, Byrd is best known as one of the only bebop jazz musicians who successfully pioneered the funk and soul genres while simultaneously remaining a pop artist. Donaldson Toussaint L'Ouverture Byrd II Born December 9, 1932 Origin Detroit, Michigan, United States Died February 4, 2013 Genres Bop Hard bop Funk Soul Instruments Trumpet Associated acts Pepper Adams, Gigi Gryce, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley Byrd attended Cass Technical High School. He performed with Lionel Hampton before finishing high school. After playing in a military band during a term in the United States Air Force, he obtained a bachelor's degree in music from Wayne State University and a master's degree from Manhattan School of Music. While still at the Manhattan School, he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, as replacement for Clifford Brown. In 1955, he recorded with Jackie McLean and Mal Waldron. After leaving the Jazz Messengers in 1956, he performed with many leading jazz musicians of the day, including John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, and later Herbie Hancock. Byrd's first regular group was a quintet that he co-led from 1958-61 with baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams, an ensemble whose hard-driving performances are captured "live" on At the Half Note Cafe. In June 1964, Byrd jammed with jazz legend Eric Dolphy in Paris just two weeks before Dolphy's death from insulin shock. In the 1970s, Byrd moved away from the hard-bop jazz idiom and began to record jazz fusion and rhythm and blues. He teamed up with the Mizell Brothers (producer-writers Larry and Fonce) for Black Byrd in 1973. It was highly successful and became Blue Note Records' highest-ever selling album. The title track climbed to No. 19 on Billboard′s R&B chart and reached the Hot 100 pop chart, peaking at No. 88. The Mizell brothers' follow-up albums for Byrd, Street Lady, Places and Spaces and Stepping into Tomorrow, were also big sellers, and have subsequently provided a rich source of samples for acid jazz artists such as Us3. Most of the material for the albums was written by Larry Mizell. In 1973, he created The Blackbyrds, a fusion group consisting of his best students. They scored several major hits including "Happy Music" (No. 3 R&B, No. 19 pop), "Walking In Rhythm" (No. 4 R&B, No. 6 pop) and "Rock Creek Park". In 1994, Byrd appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African-American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time Magazine. He has taught music at Rutgers University, the Hampton Institute, New York University, Howard University, Queens College, Oberlin College, Cornell University and Delaware State University. In addition to his master's from Manhattan School of Music, Byrd has two master's degrees from Columbia University. He received a law degree in 1976, and his doctorate from Columbia University Teachers College in 1982. In September 2009, he was named an artist-in-residence at Delaware State University.[1] Byrd lives in Teaneck, New Jersey.[2] [edit]Discography [edit]As leader Blue Note Off to the Races (1959) Byrd in Hand (1959) Fuego (1959) Byrd in Flight (1960) At the Half Note Cafe (1960) Chant (1961) The Cat Walk (1961) Royal Flush (1961) Free Form (1961) A New Perspective (1963) I'm Tryin' to Get Home (1964) Mustang (1966) Blackjack (1967) Slow Drag (1967) The Creeper (1967) Fancy Free (1969) Electric Byrd (1969–70) Kofi (1969) Ethiopian Knights (1971) Black Byrd (1973) Street Lady (1973) Stepping into Tomorrow (1974) Places and Spaces (1975) Caricatures (1976) Other labels Byrd Jazz (Transition, 1955) - also released as First Flight (Delmark) Byrd's Word (Savoy, 1955) Byrd's Eye View (Transition, 1955) Byrd Blows on Beacon Hill (Transition, 1956) 2 Trumpets (Prestige, 1956) - with Art Farmer The Young Bloods (Prestige, 1956) - with Phil Woods Jazz Lab (Columbia, 1957) - with Gigi Gryce At Newport (Verve, 1957) - with Gigi Gryce Modern Jazz Perspective (Columbia, 1957) - with Gigi Gryce and Jackie Paris Jazz Eyes (Regent, 1957) - with John Jenkins Byrd in Paris (Bethlehem, 1958) Parisian Thoroughfare (1958) Live Au Chat Qui Peche (1958), Fresh Sound Records Motor City Scene - with Pepper Adams (1960), Bethlehem Up with Donald Byrd (1964), Verve Thank You... for F.U.M.L.
