Hammond Nights at EJC
Directed by Ross Stanley

The Hammond Organ has a very special place in jazz history but can be quite neglected due to the rarity of good playable instruments and the logistical difficulties of heaving them in and out of venues. But you need no longer fear for the longevity and visibility of the Hammond in the UK. Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is now the proud owner of two such instruments complete with Leslie 145 speakers and we are ready to go.

From the music of Jimmy Smith, Larry Young, Dr Lonnie Smith to Larry Goldings and Joey Defrancesco, we will embracing it all in these ensuing Hammond Nights at Eastside Jazz Club.

Book your tickets now so you can say you were at the first one! You’ll hear various new student combos with Hammond at the centre, played by our excellent BMusJazz piano students and including special guest appearance from our new Hammond tutor Ross Stanley.
