CD Review: Scott Hamilton & Jeff Hamilton Trio – Live in Bern
As soon as I see the name Jeff Hamilton, I know I am about enjoy some well-played jazz. The name Scott Hamilton is new to me but I was sure that this pairing would be exciting, and so it is.
Jeff’s trio is: Jeff (drums), Tamir Hendelman (piano), and Christof Luty (bass). Scott, who worked his way through many and varied instruments, eventually found his forte with a saxophone. A fact we should all celebrate.
There are 13 tracks on Live in Bern, including: September in the Rain; All Through the Night; Key Largo; Woody ‘n You; and There’ll Be Some Changes Made. Great stuff!
If you like straight-ahead, swinging jazz (I know you do, that’s why you read The Jassman), this is an album to which you will often return.
