              The Hammond B-3 organ has been growling its way through gospel, R&B, rock, pop, blues, and jazz since the first one was built in 1954. This book celebrates the rich history and potent influence of the Hammond B-3 and its right-hand man, the whirling Leslie speaker - the instrumen...tal paring that changed organ music forever. The book explains the tone-wheel system that renders the famous Hammond sound, and reveals the secrets behind the B-3s drawbars, presets, pedalboard, percussion, and other features that made Hammond organs unique. Packed with photos of the top musicians and all the key models, The Hammond Organ: Beauty in the B also features a discography that guides you to a wide range of must-hear Hammond recordings, from stars such as Jimmy Smith, Keith Emerson, Paul Shaffer, Tom Coster, Booker T. Jones, Sly Stone, and many others. For players there are tips on buying and maintaining Hammonds and Leslies. The book also features 25 licks you must know, plus performance techniques from the masters of the B-3.
