Tom Hammond, producer for many Chiaro recording projects, died suddenly on 27 December 2021. Tom was a superb producer, with a keen ear for detail and nuance, and a wonderful talent for saying the right thing at the right moment to get the best results in a recording session. He was a consummate musician, and a great friend, and will be sorely missed.
