Since we enabled visitors of The Hammond Jazz Inventory to subscribe to our newsletter from the frontpage of the site, quite some people did,
so it's time to produce another issue. Last february we celebrated our second anniversary but we don't stop growing and
developing the site. In this issue we'll bring you up to date about new developments:
We assume you know our award winning orghammograms. If you don't, here is a short desciption: "An orghammogram is a graphical
representation of musicians that are related through one ore more recordings off (funk) jazz (or fusion) music in which
the (Hammond) organ plays a significant role. An orghammogram is a model of reality only as far as these relations are
retrievable from The Hammond Jazz Inventory database. When more information about recordings is added to the Hammond Jazz
Inventory database the relation between musicians will change and so will the orghammograms change over time".
On top of these pieces of art we now have introduced Orghammospheres. Orghammopsheres represent about the same information as
orghammograms do. The outstanding difference is they are in place animated. Orghammospheres morph into each other without
having to load a different webpage in your browser. It's hard and dull to explain. You better have al look at them in action:
Remember, we have about 1000 of them. Some overlap or morph into each other, some don't.
Whenever an album in The Hammond Jazz Inventory is for sale on Amazon, we now pull all the customer
reviews from Amazon and put them on the album page. This means that from now on we have a few
thousend reviews on the site. Now, that's a way to create content. Have a look at some of them
James Shipp is musician #1000
Thousend orghammospheres means thousend musicians. Yes, indeed. Very recently we added musician number 1000 to our database;
percussionist and vibist - among other instruments -
. To celebrate it we published an interview with him you can read

Visitors and page views
Not only are we growing, so is the number of visitors (blue) and pageviews (orange) you can see in the next picture. (Thank
you for that Google).
