Albert Hammerman

A composer, radiologist, Washington University educator, collector of antique musical instruments and beach sand, Al Hammerman is a modern day Renaissance man who is never bored and rarely at a loss for inspiration.

Although a composer for many years, only recently has Al Hammerman\'s music become accessible to the general public. On faculty at Washington University, Hammerman has worked on projects with the performing arts department as well as lent assistance to area theater groups and one Off Broadway musical theater production. He even did a short free lance advertising stint as a jingle writer.

Called both contemporary and classic, many of Hammerman\'s songs are reminiscent of a style once thought forgotten; songs whose charming melodies and clever lyrics quickly capture the heart and imagination of the listener; songs meant to be remembered and endure.

All of Al\'s St. Louis area music efforts have gone towards raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri. A relationship that \”all started with a song\” and that has allowed him to gain a much greater meaning and pleasure from his musical endeavors.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
