Oral History Information
Company NameHammond Organ UK
Jimmy Gibbs opened the very first crate containing a Hammond B-3 in the United Kingdom in the 1950s. Several years later, at the height of the Cold War, Jimmy brought the famous organ to Moscow, the first person to do so in history. He found that “music can speak every language and that no one ever needs to interpret a smile on the face of those playing music. We all know what that smile means!” Jimmy was also an important leader in establishing Hammond Dealers throughout Europe.
