Regular price £10.00 Sale

The American tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton is a timeless treasure, an artistic heir bridging the present day to the great swing saxophonists throughout jazz history. His is a voice reviving and thriving in an iconic style. Today, often times the “new thing” is borrowed or inspired by something older, and here on this record, it’s a treat for lovers of great songs, tastefully played by excellent
interpreters. In this lovely program with a trio led by pianist Jan Lundgren, we are reminded of why Hamilton’s consistently high quality has made him famous. He almost surpasses himself with his calm and mature overview, which this time is triggered by Lundgren’s inspired piano playing along with bassist Hans Backenroth and drummer Kristian Leth’s crystal-clear accompaniment. The repertoire included here includes 60's gems from Bent Fabricius Bjerre, rollicking compositions from bassists Oscar Pettiford, Eric Moseholm and Niels-Henning Orsted-Pedersen and traditional Danish folk songs.
Scott Hamilton (tenor sax); Jan Lundgren (piano); Hans Backenroth (bass); Kristian Leth (drums).
