Why not take Hammond B-3 Organ lessons from a Master?
Tony Monaco has created a series of DVDs and Digital Downloads to help musicians learn the art of the incredible Hammond B-3 Organ.
That's right, the Hammond organ. That incomparable purr, growl, roar, and squeal. That transcendent pad behind an acoustic guitar. That full-afterburner smear up the keyboard with all the drawbars pulled out and the Leslies spooling up. That funky, soulful percussive growl that just oozes with chicken grease and brings to mind a trio of hot cats cookin' in a small jazz club. The plaintive wail of gospel playing that gets you on your knees.
That's the instrument!
Now, thanks to DVDs, Digital Downloads, and the Internet, you can take lessons with a Hammond B-3 Scientist who will open the door to mastery of this extraordinary creative tool.
The Hammond in Jazz has experienced a resurgence as legends like the godfather of jazz organ Jimmy Smith record new albums and up-and-coming giants like young phenom Joey DeFrancesco and Tony Monaco push the envelope of B-3 jazz.
