And yes, they are one of the most underrated bands ever. The latin should be procul harun, but the band got it wrong! Not in 4 million light years.

Also, for fans of the more recent jam bands, Kyle Hollingsworth of String Cheese Incident is fantastic.The Hammond B3 is a beast of an instrument and the jazz-organ-trio format is a staple of the jazz idiom. Tracings its origins back to a wind driven instrument-compressed air being pushed throughmultiple-length tubes to sound various notes-the pipe organ made its way into western religious ceremonies in the eighth century when Charlemagne installed one in his chapel in Aachen.
For centuries since the organ has been the musical instrument of choice in churches, temples and synagogues. Then came along came Laurens Hammond. His goal was to offer a cheaper alternative to the pipe organ for churches and places of worship and he succeeded with the introduction of his Hammond model A console organ in The B3 model was modified in and has gone through numerous electronic iterations including a new XB3 that was made by Hammond-Suzuki and purportedly faithfully simulates the original tonewheel sound through the use of electronics.
But the original tonewheel generator B3 had a distinctive sound and feel, and is the model most prized by aficionados. The B3 would eventually be brought out of the church and into secular world and become a staple of the jazz tradition. It is chronological, starting with Waller and ending with Charette, but it easily could have been more inclusive given enough space and time. There will undoubtedly be some musicians who are missing entirely from the list and deserve to be included and for tha t I apologize.
Many thanks to Mathew Kaminski the organist for the Atlanta Braves and a helluva jazz organist himself for his astute input. The music had a certain bounce to it, a calliope sounding celebration.
The organ was also seen as a cheaper alternative to the expense of hiring a full seventeen-piece big band. With its combined use of chorus and single line notes, the organ could create a bigger, broader sound. A deft technician could use creative positioning of his draw bars to mimic other instruments. It was like having a band in a box. Lucky from Lucky by Henry Mancini and his Orchestra. Here he is heard playing with guitarist Kenny Burrell. The use of a guitarist often with or without drums as the other voice along in the jazz organ became a very popular format for the form.
He switched to organ after hearing Wild Bill Davis in Smith had his own distinctive setting on the pull bars and he used a percussive attack, the result became known as his signature sound. He was also a facile improviser and was adept as using his bass pedals to simulate the sound of a walking string bass.
Best B3, Rhodes, Synth, Piano in One Keyboard
After Jimmy Smith, there were whole legions of players who were undeniably influenced by his style on the B3. Here are some of my remaining choices for most memorable performances on the instrument all the way into the modern day.
Joe Dukes drms. With Grant Green gtrElvin Jones drms. Make no mistake about it the ladies have come to this party with Shirley Scott, Rhonda Scott and Barbara Dennerlien all struting their chops.

Q: Can we take it for granted that Jean-Jaques Kravetz played a B-3 in both aforementioned recordings? A: Ultimately, unless an artist specifically states the exact model he or she was using on a recording, it's difficult to know what was being played. While no Hammond sounds exactly like any other Hammond, the console organs B, C, A differ only in the casework and should sound the same. The speakers and amps used on a recording, of course, can be wildly different different Leslie models, Hammond cabinets, the A's internal speakers, miking styles, etc.
The latest clones are very, very good. So good, in fact, that a couple of the later Hammond Hits listed above might actually be recorded on a clonewheel.

I own an Electro which is quite excellent for these vintage keyboard sounds. I do not have 1st hand experience with their synthesizers, but their recordings are fantastic IMO. I use a Roland Fantom for synth sounds. GillespieDec 8, MadsenProf. Fuzzhucklebee and 2 others like this.

Messages: 3, Kronos is still the top of the heap. It does everything the OP wants and more. Some issues though LCD screen has tiny fonts and the build quality could be better. I would suggest Jupiter 80 but the organs are its weakest point. Some aliasing with the VA synth in the higher registers. DevnorDec 8, Dec 8, 5. People seem to go nuts for the Nords. I've shared others' on a few bills and they seem really nice. I'm an easy customer though - for these shows usually all I want or need is a good B3 sound which is why I tend to use another band's keyboard for these kinds of showsand I'm usually playing with a band that's so loud and noisy I can't even hear if it's an accurate representation or not.

This may take a second or two. The Chargers are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now having won 6 of the last 8 games including three wins in a row after starting the season 0-4. They can become the second team in NFL history to make the playoffs after starting the season 0-4 as they are tied for the division lead and are playing the best football out of all of the teams in the AFC West. The Redskins have a minute chance of making the playoffs at 5-7 and will need a lot of help in order to do so.
These two teams have played each other 10 times with the Redskins leading the series 7-3. The Redskins won the last matchup in 2013 by a score of 30-24. The Redskins are 5-7 SU and 5-7 ATS. Kirk Cousins is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the NFL and will likely be one of the top free agents in the offseason unless Washington decides to franchise him again.
He lacks a true WR1 after their key free agent signing, Terrelle Pryor, has been a bust. Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder have had decent seasons, but not elite numbers.
Jamison Crowder leads the team in receiving with 51 catches for 628 yards and 1 touchdown. The running game has been below average as the Redskins have been forced to use three running backs this season in Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine. Both Kelley and Thompson have found their way onto the IR and Perine leads the Redskins in rushing with 465 yards and a touchdown.
The defense has been mediocre as they rank 25th in points allowed per game, 15th in rushing yards allowed per game and 20th in passing yards allowed per game. The Chargers are 6-6 SU and 6-5-1 ATS. The Chargers started the season 0-4, but have since gone 6-2 and have a chance to be only the second team in NFL history to start 0-4 and make the playoffs. Philip Rivers has been playing at an All Pro level this season and should make the Pro Bowl.
Keenan Allen has been able to stay healthy all season after missing time in every year since his rookie season and lead the team in receiving with 77 receptions for 1,032 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Melvin Gordon is a good NFL running back who is averaging 3. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are two of the best defensive ends in the NFL at getting to the quarterback and should be able to get pressure on Cousins in this matchup.
The defense ranks 6th in points allowed per game, 32nd in rushing yards allowed per game and 7th in passing yards allowed per game.It was so helpful and makes us love the subject. If you understand the subject, you start loving the subject and this is exactly what I realized and professor's explanation made me start loving R. Assistant Teacher (Shweta Jadhav) really was so helpful. Her feedback, comments were so very valid and felt really blessed to meet and get taught from such wonderful people.
Every one at Statistics are such wonderful and nice people. I am really blessed to be part of such an institute :)Both professor Verzani and the TA's were always ready to answer questions.
This is probably the most actively I've ever participated in an online class. I really benefitted from this course and I appreciate all the thought and effort put into making it such a valuable resource for R users.
This course will definitely be used for my work. This course should be called Intro to R for Busy People. I'm really glad I took this course and will recommend it to others. Thank you John and the TAs!. You've made my fear of R vanish-- the pace of the course definitely helped with building confidenceI took the course to get starting using R, thus I think this will help with my use of statistics in the future.
Thank you for the excellent course. I appreciated the timely and detailed responses from Dr. Discussions initiated by other students were also very valuable - esp for PCA and ClustersInstructor gave good, understandable answers on the board, and several nice summaries of topics we were covering.
I have truly enjoyed this course with Professor Babinec. Anthony did a great job of answering questions, adding explanations and expanding on ideas. The best teacher I have had at statistics. The course has fueled my desire to increase my understanding of measurement, specifically Rasch and IRT techniques and theories.
