Organist. He is also known as Johnny "Hammond" Smith to distinguish him from the more famous record producer, executive, and critic and/or his son. An organist in the soul-jazz mode, he had a brief moment in the spotlight with the '70s album Breakout, where his version of "It's Too Late" with Grover Washington, Jr. and Hank Crawford was a huge East Coast radio hit. Hammond is a competent, sometimes funky player. ~ Ron WynnPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
