Don't you just love a Hammond B3?

I enjoyed that DR, thank you; i agree, the Hammond B3 can produce a lovely sound in the right (& left) hands.

I've recently discovered this Scandinavian quartet, which has a similar instrumental line up to your link, & features Sigurdur Flosason on Alto Saxophone, Kjeld Lauritsen on Hammond B3 Organ, Jacob Fischer on Guitar & Kristian Leth on Drums.

This the tune The Night We Called It A Day, from their most recent album Daybreak, which was recorded in 2014:

This same group recorded another album Nightfall in 2012, which is the companion to Daybreak.
This is I only Have Eyes For You, which is played at a medium tempo:

Here's a bit more of Kjeld Lauritsen with his own group, playing the tune Alt Er Godt:

This next clip is incomplete; i think the tune is the same, but the venue is different, & it gives a good close up of his technique:

A couple of months ago you posted a nice clip of Barbara Dennerlein; Here she is from a 2013 concert in Italy:

i've looked to see if this is on CD, but i can't find it


The speakers used in the videos (Leslies i think), give the B3 a soft edged, lovely liquid type of sound, imo.

Thanks for the links.


Much of the richness of the sound of a Hammond B3 comes from the Leslie speakers you mentioned. I'm going back decades, but I remember the first time I saw one in action with the cover off. The rotating baffles were quite impressive.

Here's a demo of Leslie 122 working. It's the one which was most frequently used with a Hammond B3.

That clip was helpful, when i first saw them in the videos i wondered what they were, & had to look them up because i'd never seen them before.

The title "A Summer Day" has been recorded twice:

- duo (Hammond / drums): CD "Love Letters"
- with Philharmonic Orchestra: CD "Change of Pace"

See also my website: http://bebab-jazz.de/ >compositions >recorded titles
