THE LINK QUARTET  discography

With Paolo taking over the band from retired founders Link Cardini and Tony Face he recruited Majo (guitar), Pato (drums), and Arnaldo (vocals) who’ve given not only the solid skills always central to a Link Quartet album, but also bring a fresh style necessary to stand riff-to-riff with their retro-contemporaries. French soul lyrics, hard-rock guitar energy, jazz drummer work ethic, body rumbling bass, and blistering organ riffs all come together into a socially conscious “power to the working man” party. HB DEBUT:2002
PAOLO "APOLLO" NEGRI  discography

The hardest working man we know! The Link Quartet, Fred Leslie's missing Link, Low Fidelity Jet-Set Orchestra, Flyjack, Futuro Seven, Max Paparella, Modulo5, Wicked Minds, the list goes on…

Paolo's third solo album "COBOL" will be released in December on Hammondbeat Records. HB DEBUT:2007
THOMAS MACKAY  discography

'Thomas owes an obvious debt to the great Bobby Hutcherson. With a clear tone, strong chops and good ideas he is also reminiscent of modern vibes masters Bryan Carrott and Joe Locke. A fine debut from a fellow Oregonian.' ~ Rob Scheps HB DEBUT:2013
MAX PAPARELLA  discography

Massimo "Max" Paparella, born in 1975, pianist, arranger and SIAE-registered composer with a special passion for Hammond organ and vintage instruments. He has over fifthteen years' experience in the music field, both as a live and studio musician. HB DEBUT:2008
THE BLAXOUND  discography

The Blaxound (Barcelona, Spain) was started by Marta Roman in 2003 recording with her musician friends at home. As the project became more serious the first album "Return Of The Blaxound" was released in 2008 on Oidos-sordos (Spain). Hammondbeat is proud to bring Marta's 2nd family album "Transmission" to you. HB DEBUT:2014

Also, look for The Blaxound back-catalog on Hammondbeat Digital later in 2014.
PENELOPE  discography

Firmly established (2011) in the South East of France, Penelope is obsessed with old analogic keyboards, classic amplifiers and guitars and truly believes that good music also comes with elegance and a sense of aesthetics. Penelope is not a 60’s revival band. It is a true pop-rock act with a very wide range of influences: dynamic guitar pop songs, certified floor-fillers and introspective songs which display a different range of emotions. You will also meet strange neighbors and killer robots along the way. HB DEBUT:2014
EURO CINEMA  discography

"Jazz isn't dead, it just smells funky." That's the motto of Dutch soul jazz/funk group Euro Cinema. The group's raw jazz funk sound is rooted in late 60s organ funk as well as the anonymous "library music" soundtracks to 70s movies. Hence the name! Euro Cinema consists Tim den Heijer (guitar), Niels Piay (drums), Dennis Orsel (bass) and Rob Schepens (Hammond organ) HB DEBUT:2009
FLYJACK  discography

Rooted heavily in the soul-jazz/raw funk sound of the late 60’s and early 70’s, FLYJACK is charged by a four-piece horn section, a crack rhythm section, and twin lead vocals. Hailing from Austin, Texas, the group has created international waves. Their HB debut features the mighty Paolo "Apollo" Negri and legendary drummer Jab'o Starks. HB DEBUT:2010
LOW FIDELITY JET-SET ORCHESTRA  discography

Low Fidelity Jet-Set Orchestra dive aggressively into vintage sound with deep funk roots, bossa-nova excursions, and an overdose of Hammond stabs, licks, chops and grooves. HB DEBUT:2007
THE YARDS  discography

Throwback break beats, facedown funk for the people. Savory playing style, innovative compositions, and well-seasoned sensibilities. HB DEBUT:2006
FRED LESLIE'S MISSING LINK  discography
