Présentation de l'éditeur

(Book). Now fully updated, The Hammond Organ: Beauty in the B traces the technological and artistic evolution of the B-3 and other tonewheel organs, as well as the whirling Leslie speakers that catapulted the Hammond sound into history. You'll discover the genius that went into the development of Hammond's tonewheel generator, drawbar harmonics, percussion, scanner vibrato and other innovations, as well as the incredible assistance Don Leslie provided for Hammond by creating his famous rotating speaker system. Plus B-3 legends including soul-jazzman Jimmy McGriff and progressive rocker Keith Emerson share their playing techniques; technical experts offer tips on buying, restoring, and maintaining Hammonds and Leslies; and over 200 photos illustrate historic Hammond organs, Leslie cabinets, and B-3 masters at work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 WOW !!!!... (bis...) 8 septembre 2011
Commandé et reçu en même temps que "Classic hammond organ" de Steve Lodder.
Même qualité de reliure, mais classique cette fois. Belle densité de texte, facile à lire avec de bons souvenirs "d'anglais 2nd langue": Genese de l'instrument, développement et diffusion, apport des divers organistes, des pionniers aux contemporains, revue discographique copieuse... Historique des modèles de la marque avec leurs caractéistiques (très instructif) et des modèles concurents (exceptés Clavia Nord),modules, expanders... J'étais deja fan de l'instrument, j'ai trouvé dans ce livre de quoi nourrir mon amour, ma culture et ma curiosité. Carton plein !!!

Trés américain dans son organisation, ce livre est fantastique et je serais prêt à en acheter une 3° édition avec encore plus de détails et des mises à jour ! Pierre MARTEL.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thorough and real, Vail's book is a good read 3 mars 2004
Par Moe Denham - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a Hammond B3 player for more years than I'd like to admit, I WILL admit I enjoyed this book tremendously. Now, it's not a tech manual, but I thought the book was laid out very well. It gave a good description of who Laurens Hammond was, such as being inventor of the electric clock. When doing research there's always gonna be some folks out there who may disagree with some statement, but that's just natural. I think that Mark Vail did an incredibly thorough job of researching this instrument and its history. He showed that he has a personal interest in it as well. A lot of people can just write a book 'cause they're paid to, but Mark has passion for the B. He showed it all the way through. I liked the reproductions of some of the original brochures, with the pictures of the different models. I remember those from when I was a kid -- my mother went to buy a Hammond and brought those brochures home. Quite often when I'm talking with someone about a particular model, I'll take out Mark's book and show them the photos and descriptions. He gives the year the models were built, what their price was -- that sort of stuff is very helpful and just plain fun to know.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive Hammond and Leslie Info Under One Roof 27 octobre 2003
Par Stephen Fortner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Previous to the publcation of Vail's book, newcomers seeking to penetrate the mystique surrounding the Hammond organ had to rely on a diffuse smattering of sources for information. Most such sources are commercial: technicians, restorers, shops dealing in vintage musical gear, etc. Though many of these specialists are deeply knoweldgable and provide great products and services, it's a small and competitive community, which can make it difficult for the curious novice to get objective information. As a younger keyboard nut, I personally bugged enough of those people to learn that most do not have the time or energy to play the role of educator, especially if a sale is not imminent.
Playing this role is exactly the point, though, when you have a book to sell, and Vail approaches this task with a thoroughness, integrity, and love of the subject that make this one of the best books of its kind. No. it's not an exhaustive technical reference, nor the end-all of any debate about the Hammond. It's not meant as such, any more than a docent-guided tour of a famous museum is meant to replace a PhD in art history. Rather, it's the beginning of a journey, and for this subject, a better beginning than we've ever had.
Among Vail's many sources are longtime Hammond exec Alan Young, who also shed light on the legacy of John Hanert, the engineer who made many of Laurens Hammond's ideas work, rotary speaker inventor Don Leslie, and a who's who of the jazz, rock, and gospel players that imprinted the Hammond-Leslie sound on our consciousness to the degree that even people who've never heard the name of the instrument recognize "that sound." While I haven't fact-checked every page, it is simply absurd to suggest any generalization that the sources are suspect or the information inaccurate.
Overall, this is an enjoyable and informative read that can save you a ton of legwork in approaching the realm of the mighty Hammond. The better part of a century lies between us and its conception, and some current repairers and restorers scrape part numbers off components so their work can't be duplicated. In such a world, Vail's book is as objective as it gets.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buy this book 5 novembre 2003
Par Barry M. Gould - Publié sur Amazon.com
I had borrowed a copy of this book from a friend, and after skimming it, decided then and there I had to have my own copy; so I bought one.
It's great to see that someone took the time to research and write such an informative and interesting book on a very "niche" piece of the music industry.
It should be required reading for anyone interested in the Hammond organ, and it's history. Because of the amount of pictures and quotes, it makes for very "easy" reading. I finished it in about one day, and still refer to it!
I recommend it, highly!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Lot of Great Stuff Here! 4 octobre 2003
Par Tony Monaco - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a jazz organist and endorser of the New Hammond B3, I found Mark's second addition to be a great book. Not only does he cover the history of the Hammond organ well, he also ties in the players and their discographies as well. I don't think he meant this book to be a technical guide on how to repair organs or further more get into every detail and story possible! It is an informative book with great information about the Hammond organ, the leslie speaker and the many different organ players out there. This book is a great way to get acquanted with the wonderful world of Hammond organ!!! Tony Monaco [...]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Spinning wheels to moving Air 8 octobre 2003
Par John Fisher - Publié sur Amazon.com
The "beauty in the B" first edition was hard to put down,I have read it from cover to cover several times. The Second edition is equally compelling and filled with a wealth of additional information on how to approach "the sound" with todays instruments. Mr Vail also presents "how to play" information and performance tips from several B3 masters, a must for anyone seeking to master the incredible B3's range of sound. A detailed history of Laurens Hammond and his Organ Company is also wonderfully covered with many quotes from company insiders. Of course the other mandantory half of the B3 equation, the Leslie speaker and it's creator Don Leslie, are also detailed in photo and text. Especially intriguing to me was the war between Laurens Hammond and Don Leslie. Mr Vail presents insight from insiders of both camps as the battle waged on, great reading.If you have not read the first edition, the second edition is an incredible buy. If you have an insatiable appetite for all things Hammond and Leslie, own both books!.
