I really was thinking Jimmy Smith but it just always came out different

Organissimo - Alive And kickin'

Rusell Malone quote
I’ve always felt that jazz is the way in which something is done. The material can come from anywhere — what makes it jazz is the way you approach it.

Welcome to The Hammond Jazz Inventory
You might or might not know The Hammond Jazz Inventory. For you who don't: The Hammond Jazz Inventory is a website that is entirely dedicated to jazz music in which the organ plays a significant role. It contains discographies, reviews, blogs, orghammograms, sound samples, links and more. It's very clickable. It's primary design goal was to reveal the relationships beween musicians; who recorded with who on what album.

Current status and future plans
We now list 240 albums complete with tracklisting, musicians etcetera. About 10% of them also have 3 or more soundsamples you can listen to. In the near future we plan to add much more soundsamples to the site. In the meantime you can listen to all of them on our new music page.
