The Hammond organ was first made in 1935. In 1954, the now famous Hammond B3 was introduced with additional harmonic drum functions. When the company went out of business in 1985, around two million models of the Hammond organ were produced. The Hammond B3 was originally marketed to churches as a cheaper alternative to the wind-powered pipe organ. It quickly became popular with professional jazz musicians in organ trios. JIMMY SMITH's use of the Hammond B3 inspired a generation of organ players, and by the 1960s and 1970s, the use of the Hammond B3 spread throughout rhythm and blues, rock, reggae, and progressive rock.
