SAM SALOMONE - MASTER OF THE HAMMOND B-3 ORGAN

 

April 19th, POLYRHYTHMS Third Sunday Jazz Workshop & Matinee Series features Sam Salomone of the mighty Hammond B-3 organ at the Redstone Room, in the RMEon the corner of 2nd & in, in Davenport.  A Jazz Demystifying Workshop, begins at 3 pm, and is followed by a matinee concert from 6 – 8 pm.

 

The Sam Salomone Trio features Sam Salomone on organ, Steve Grismore onguitar and Tim Crumley on drums.

 

“In an earlier attempt, the May 20, 2012 POLYRHYTHMS Third Sunday Jazz Series featuring Sam Salomone had to be cancelled due to his emergency major surgery”, said Nate Lawrence, Director, Polyrhythms.  “Our series has thrived on presentation of a diverse array of styles and instrumentation and we have been extremely fortunate in not having to pay for the chances we have taken to acquire gifted artists that strategically contribute to our program.  “In this case, our prayers for his complete recovery and return to form have been answered.”

 

During the past four decades, Sam Salomone, has attained the status of an institution in Iowa; being Inducted into both the state's jazz and blues halls of fame, Salomone has played with the cream of Iowa's crop of musicians, from doo-wop and rock'n'roll to blues and jazz. Not an elitist, he is down-to-earth in the classic Iowa manner. "I wasn't a child prodigy," he says. "It didn't come easy for me."

 

Originally from Chicago, Salomone's parents moved to Tama, Iowa in the early 1960s, where he grew up. Eventually, the family settled in Waterloo, first opening a bar and then a pizzeria. The bar "bombed," but it was the first gig for his first band, recalled Salomone, who had fallen under the sway of Little Richard, Ray Charles, Fats Domino, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

 

Since then, Salomone has toured the Midwest, paying dues from Denver to Peoria while performing in Iowa.  He projects a sense of tradition; one further enhanced by his instrument of choice, an old-school Hammond organ, vintage 1963.

 

Asked about the organists who shaped his sound, Salomone mentions the usual giants: Jimmy Smith, "Brother" Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, and Richard "Groove" Holmes. He is especially fond of Larry Young, an eclectic, experimental-minded organist who played with Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana, among others. Jazz musicians also draw from those who play instruments besides their own, and Salomone is no exception, citing Illinois Jacquet, Oscar Peterson and Sonny Stitt (among others) as influences.

 

Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz Workshop & Matinee Series at the RME’s Redstone Room, April 19th, features an all-ages workshop at 3 pm, and matinee performance from 6-8 pm.   Admission to the workshop is Free for Kids and $5 for adults.  General admission for the 6 - 8 pm concert is $10 or $15 for reserved seats.  For ticket information, call Polyrhythms: 309 373-0790 – or visit the website:www.polyrhythms.org
