Kieler Nachtrichten: “Im Spiel geht Jon Hammond absolut in seiner Musik und seiner Leidenschaft für den guten alten Hammond-Sound auf. Mit 18 Jahren kaufte er sich seine erste Hammond B3 und tourte mit der Rockband Hades im Vorprogramm von Tower Of Power oder Michael Bloomfield. Erst 1991 legte er sich eine digitale und leichtere XB-2 zu. Ein regelrechter Genießer: Seinen Kopf wiegt er ständig von einer Seite zur anderen, windet sich wie Stevie Wonder über seinen Fingern. Die linke Hand ersetzt dabei größtenteils den Part eines Bassisten, zusätzlich zu den verschiedenen Klangfarben, die er manuell justiert.”
