Hammond Nights is back – the cycle devoted to genres associated with the instrument invented by Laurens Hammond in the thirties. This time, the special guest will be the singer Gisele Jackson, who began her career in classic soul. Jackson burst on to the scene when Ray Charles included her in his band. Other giants of Afro-American music, such as Donna Summer and James Brown, also made use of Gisele Jackson’s voice. The Baltimore musician has toured Asia, America, Europe and Africa. As a solo artist, she has sung in the biggest clubs in the USA. She has even performed at Hollywood ceremonies and at the swearing in of president Bill Clinton.
