LATE RENT - ASCAP Audio Portrait: Jon Hammond

*LISTEN TO THE AUDIO HERE: LATE RENT - ASCAP Audio Portrait: Jon Hammond http://www.ascap.com/audioportraits/h/jon_hammond_rent.aspx Jon Hammond says "the fingers are the singers.'" 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.
