Renowned blues artist John Hammond just released a new album Timeless, marking over 50 years since the start of his recording career (John Hammond, 1963).

On occasion, he has had guest artists which have included Duane Allman, The Band, Charles Brown, Mike Bloomfield, JJ Cale, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, G. Love, Charlie Musselwhite, Duke Robillard and Tom Waits. His last release Rough and Tough was a 2010 Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues Album.
“John’s sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica…A blues legend…with a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience.” – The New York Times
“John's sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it... He's a great force of nature.”
– Tom Waits

"…a bluesman to be reckoned with." - Time Out New York
