        Are "Jan Hammer" and "Hammer" the same person?

        If so there is great track called Tuane lots of wordless vocals, fuzz guitar, hammond organ and brazillian rythm. I only have it on a comp, don't know what LP it is from.

        Also are "Jan Hammer" and "MC Hammer" the same person, I hope so.

          Tuane is no relation.

          The definitive Jan Hammer track for me is Don't You Know, which is a very slow Moogy tune that only lasts about 2 minutes, but is ace. It's on the Melodies album, but I think it's also on a 45, too.

          Oh Yeah, has nice parts, but I think they're always ruined by some bloody awful fusion moments buggering up the song.

            Hehe! Jan did record as 'Hammer', I believe, but the 'Hammer' that recorded 'Tuane' were a different band. Jan settled on the east coast after emigrating to the States while the other 'Hammer' were from the Bay area and recorded for the 'San Francisco' label. I could be wrong though...

            As for the last question, I'm not sure.

              You're correct, Rich. Tuane appeared on their self titled album and on a San Francisco Sampler.

              The best thing Jan did for me is on here.

                steve grossman's Terra Firma LP with Hammer is pretty heavy too.

                that San Francisco sampler's also got the alternative (better) take of Cold Blood's Shop Talk on it, hasn't it greg?

                  What's the rest of Hammer LP like? I like both the tracks on the San Francisco sampler - is the rest of it up to that standard?

                    What's that San Francisco sampler called? Label etc? It sounds very interesting.

                    Info much appreciated.

                          I picked up that San Francisco sampler a while back - really liked a lot of it, especially 'Tuane' of course, also 'Social Lubrication' by Tower Of Power and the Cold Blood stuff. I've never ventured further into finding any of the actual LPs themselves, but should I know.

                            definitely, it has that "almost there" quality thats evident on mahavishnu stuff, hence my interest in his other stuff. I'll check for "don't you know". Cheers

                              ?!

                              His instumental synth/moogy LP "The Seven Days" - (on Atlantic from '72 or 73 I think) - has a really nice moog/drums intro that was sampled by DJ Food. Not exactly essential, but worth dropping a buck or two on if you trip over it.

                              Oh, and of course, Crockett's theme!
