...the pulse is what really brings people to the music — even rap musicians are smart enough to make a rhythm track first. Unfortunately, they start rapping on top of it...

Our second anniversary

On 22 February 2007 we declared The Hammond Jazz Inventory officially live. Some simple math tells us today is our second anniversary. Congratulations and Wouter, thanks for the cake. Right now The Hammond Jazz Inventory contains the detailed description of more then 375 albums, complete with cover art, track listing and details on personnel. Some more simple math tells us we add an album around every other day. How many jazz organ albums are out there in the world? What would be your guess? We possess around 600, so there is still some work to do.

Remember you can access all this information through the musicians, bands, albums and songs submenu in the Inventory menu.

One unexpected side effect of the growth of the inventory is that a lot of orghammograms can not be computed any more. (If you don't know what an orghammogram is you can read more about them here). They are becoming just to large. But there are still beautiful ones out there:

What are we going to do in our third year? First, going on like we did in the first two years, adding more and more info to the Inventory. We also are working on a system to produce a .pdf file with the content of the Inventory that can be downloaded for your convenience.

We are happy we are two years old now. This baby is going to be big strong man.
