Happy to see this great musician included and not before time.

My favorite Jan Hammer work is his playing on Timeless, John Abercrombie's album. Magnificent.

My favorite Jan Hammer album is Oh Yeah! (why hasn't it been released on cd??) but the alternative take of the Oh Yeah tune,  Red & Orange found on Abercrombie's Timeless has the edge - also Hammer provides one of those great Hammond organ performances on Timeless, when perhaps he isn't known as a Hammond-player. For another aspect of the same line-up as found on Timeless, but with the addition of Mike Brecker in stinging form, is the later ECM Records album Night

 

Seriously thinking of trying to add Abercrombie into PA, as a major jazz rock guitarist - although a lot of his albums released in the last years, have been more mainstream jazz.

If Jan Hammer is in, where is Billy Cobham?

His work is considerable contribution to fusion.

Patience. IMHO Jan hammer has a bigger body of work and contributed to others work, more than BC. And these biogs are not dashed off in 5 minutes - 6 to 8 hours research, compilation, writing and up loading on to PA for Jan Hammer. So if you want to accelerate the process of BC's addition, start researching and writing, and I'm more than willing to help.

What about the album he did with Jerry Goodman just after the break-up of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra?

I second the motion on having John Abercrombie added to PA. His electric guitar work on some albums has definitly broken new ground and his synth-ax work is so warm and human it sounds like a natural instrument.

Like Children - you'll find it reviewed under the 'Jerry Goodman & Jan Hammer' section, which I guess will confuse when the proper Jerry Goodman section gets uploaded

Like Children  is awesome. Too bad it's never been issued on CD.

You probably already have them but in addition to those, the Elvin Jones – Jan Hammer – Gene Perla CD On The Mountain is a must (same year as Timeless, IIRC), and Horacee Arnold's Tales Of The Exonerated Flea (with Jan) is equally kickass. I think I may prefer Elvin's, though. The two Hammer & David Earle Johnson collaborations are killer—lotsa juicy monophonic Moog work.

Sorry. I would try but regretably I'm not so good in writing English.
