Brian Auger

Brian Auger is a jazz musician that uses the Hammond as his main instrument. Brian is one of the few Hammond players that does not incorporate a Leslie in his setup, and instead uses the chorus / vibrate of the Hammond to its full extent.

Al Kooper

Al Kooper is known for organizing Blood, Sweat & Tears, but  did not stay with the group long enough to share its popularity, providing studio support for Bob Dylan when he went electric in 1965, and bringing together guitarists Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills to record the Super Session album. He has had a successful solo career since then, written music for film soundtracks, and has lectured in musical composition.
