Part of the EFG london Jazz Festival
Flying in from his home in Italy for his debut in the EFG London Jazz Festival, comes Scott Hamilton, one of the all time great American saxophone players with his established trio of U.K. musicians to play some compelling swinging jazz standards and original compositions.
Scott Hamilton, borne in Rhode Island, moved to New York in 1976, getting to work with Roy Eldridge, Anita O’Day, Hank Jones, Illinois Jacquet, Vic Dickinson and Jo Jones.
Scott’s first recording date followed. He joined the Benny Goodman orchestra, continuing to work with a Goodman until the early 1980’s.
In 1977 he formed and recorded with his own quartet and along the way made albums with Tony Bennett,, Ruby Braff, John Bunch, Rosemary Clooney, Woody Herman, Dave McKenna, Gerry Mulligan, Buddy Tate and Concord All Stars.
More than fifty albums later he is still recording having made many under his own leadership, several with his regular British quartet appearing with him tonight - John Pearce- piano, Dave Green – double bass and Steve Brown – drums.
"Following a Scott Hamilton solo is like listening to a great conversationalist in full flow” – Dave Gelly
