JtW Backstage with John Hammond The Newspaper Thursday, March 12, W ' --'age B9 By .lay Mcelian John Hammond came to town last Sunday accompanied accom-panied only'-; by his I9:ifi National Steel and three-year-old flat-top guitars, and proved once again that he is not just a young, white city lolkie who has been able to pick up on Mississippi delta and Chicago Blues styles, but that vocally and in-strumentally. in-strumentally. he is as authentic 'a, link to both traditions as one could find. Booked at Park City's Cowboy Bar as an experiment ex-periment into the viability of club-style ', blues concerts, and following right on the heels of Michael Murphey's two sold-out shows on Saturday Satur-day night,' Hammond came within a few tickets of a sellout sell-out himself, and had local blues buffs-on their feet, hootin' and hollerin' from the onset. The concert had something for everyone. Performing a generous sampling of his 3(M)-song repertoire over two sets, Hammond ' laced up-tempo boogie numbers such as "Tell Me Mama" and "Statesboro Blues" for the folks who were there because their friends made such a big thing about it, with vintage blues ballads of the Robert Johnson era, for the connoisseurs in the house. By , the time John Hammond concluded his stunning first-set rendition of the Elmore James classic "It Hurts Me Too," he owned the place. He could do no wrong. Backstage between sets, surrounded by the usual gaggle of media, admirers and promoters, Hammond seemed genuinely pleased by the reception accorded him in Park City. Thinking Park City Live!

On his National Steel guitar: "I saw it in a store. It was going out of business and they had three of them. I just couldn't believe it. Everyone of them was great . but I thought this one had the best tone. I didn't have much money at the time and the store had cleaned out their attic and had everything on sale." On how he got his first professional job: "I was a gas station attendant in Los Angeles in '62 and this guy rolls in to fill up his car and he's got this big guitar in the back seat. I said, "Jeez, what kind of guitar do you got there?" I was a real kid. and he says. "It's a Martin, why, do you play?" And I says, "Oh, I play a little." I play him a song and he thinks its real good and says he's going to get me a job. And he did. It was a small club in South Gate, south of L.A. Then I got jobs at the Insomniac in Hermosa Beach, the Ice House in Pasadena, and later the Ash Grove in Hollywood." On famous musical friends of his father's who were around the house during his youth: "Bill Basie (Count was one of my father's closest friends. Billy Holiday and Jimmy Rushing were around a lot, also. But I wasn't conscious of music as a career in those days. On his father: "He was mainly a jazz fan. Swing music was his thing.

Johnson John-son and Count Basie. And all the 'stride' piano players. He liked the blues, too. His record collection included people like Robert Johnson, which is where I first heard him. "It was in 1953 or '54 that I first started buying my own records. There were people out like Elvis Presley and I thought that was cool, but when I heard people like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, ooooooh. Back then. Chuck Berry recorded on the Chess label and I went out and bought his records, and on the back they would list other people who recorded for Chess. Howling Wolf. I though, "what's a Howling Wolf?" Muddy Waters, Hooker, and the rest. So I went up to Harlem and got all these records. But at the same time I'd already been a Ian of Josh White and Big Bill Broonzey and they had albums out on Folkways Records. So I got things like Blind Willie McTell, Light-nin' Light-nin' Hopkins, and some others.

When 1 first went to Chicago. I met Michael and he took me everywhere. He took me to hear Sonny Boy Williamson, Wolf, and Muddy, and all those guys knew Michael and would call him up on stage, and Michael, who was 17 or 18. was fearless. He would go . and play with those lege ds because he knew he could." The second set really got going as both performer and audience were looser from the long break in between. It ended in the electric mode as Dennis jumped behind his drumset and Justin grabbed his bass.. A phenomenal evening with a true musical talent. Everyone there will be singing John Hammond's praises for a long time.
