Here's 3 masters of the Hammond B-3 (or a sound-a-like). A Japanese woman working in NJ, USA, a German woman living in Germany and a man living in, I believe, the USA.
Akiko Tsuruga Akiko-san to her legions of fans (I'm a US plank-owner). Sweet and petite but she can make that B-3 roar. In the best soul-jazz tradition, she takes a tune from a whisper to a scream then brings it back down. Plays frequently with Houston Person--she's played with the best saxmen/guitarists in the Philly-NYC corridor. I've seen her in dives, country benefits and swell places--she puts it out there the same everywhere--top-notch.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_8E8SJ1lhU << 11 minutes well-spent--make that, invested. She and pianist/singer Karin Allyson do this better than anyone.
http://www.youtube.coistm/watch?v=DasI6UIJrrc << her working 4tet and they really enjoy the gigs. Like her better in the kimono. Bob DeVos is a leader on his own.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbdG13r0B_0 << what I am talking about...Eargasm.
Barbara Dennerlein takes the B-3 in a different direction: Bop and beyond. And before.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60ut7yIuCEY << good bio by the uploader; a tour de force by Ms. Dennerlein
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPqYZNqg15g << ...then we go to something distinctly non-bop that just flat git's it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvgsU-RuKlo << I couldn't find the entire 18 minute duet with a pipe organist--bet that's a pip.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EK2PjyF08U << sublime.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUnG97D8c50 << as 1 commenter said, "She makes me crazy with her gifts."
Larry Goldings You've heard him 1000 times--you just didn't always know it. He's got 10 discs but has been a sideman for everybody and good songwriter and behind-the-glass guy too. Not just included here for gender diversity *. Here's his wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Goldings Here's music he's directly responsible:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiyRBNL2Z7Q << always plenty of space for his players
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_RGhJB0Ufo << something a bit different but always tasteful
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYzUsiDlpeA << like it Latin, with a master drummer?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teEY4yfmbxQ << his friends are eager to answer the call...Mr. Goldings wrote this funky if derivative piece.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-CNMqLc1g4 << with one of the more flexible, supple guitarists around--John Scofield
BONUS: a 1+ hour set in NYC, broadcast (I believe) live: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8A0V60teBI
* For those looking for gender non-diversity, may I direct your ears and attention to Ms. Trudy Pitts and Ms. Rhoda Scott? And BTW all the above mentioned musicians are well worth your investigation--I didn't want to strew this with q.v.s = which see = great fun to be had in listening to these folks too.
