Full Spectrum Records:

" Full Spectrum Records welcomes noted guitarist and improviser Ross Hammond into the fold with the release of 'A Bright Light.'

A prolific recording artist, Hammond has self-published a slew of home recorded material, in addition to his numerous works for Blue Hole, Prescott, and other “formal” outlets, mining a rich playing style that travels freely among what he terms “the Banyan tree” of jazz, blues, global traditions, and improvised music. 'A Bright Light' carries on in this traditional working style, capturing a supple improvisation on his National acoustic lap steel guitar, tuned to Open D, direct-to-tape .

Recorded at home in Sacramento, California on a cold January's day, this material stands as a potent and deeply personal document of what could be termed improvisation-as-mindfulness. play on a practice that he engages regularly, as a part of his day-to-day routine. Amidst the ongoing COVID pandemic / endemic, our fracturing biosphere, and the ongoing stress testing of Western Democracy, Hammond has found balance in using longer improvised sessions as a method of centering. In his own words, "it's good to just sit for a while and make sounds.”

John Green, Hammond's former guitar teacher, once said, “the fastest way out of town is down the neck of your guitar.” In this spirit, we hope these jams bring light, warmth, and a gentle escape to our friends and supporters in the colder months to come.
