Bringing his ax to the Hammer

By Colin Newton

There’s something to be said about playlists. You can do whatever you want with them, stuff them with any kind of music to match any kind of mood. Guitarist Ross Hammond’s career has been a bit like a personal playlist built over the years, and on Thursday, Aug. 6, he’s bringing that playlist to the Hammer Museum in West L.A. as part of the museum’s JazzPOP concert series.
“Being in Sacramento, I get down to Los Angeles some,” Hammond told Giive a (bleep). “But this will be my first really big gig there.
“I’m really looking forward to it.”
Hammond’s playlist utilizes jazz, Americana, world music and more.
