Scott Hamilton

When Scott Hamilton appeared in the mid-'70s fully formed with an appealing swing style on tenor (mixing together Zoot Sims and Ben Webster), he caused a minor sensation, for few other young players during the fusion era were exploring pre-bop jazz at his high level. He began playing when he was 16 and developed quickly, moving to New York in 1976. Hamilton played with Benny Goodman in the late '70s, but he has mostly performed as a leader, sometimes sharing the spotlight with Warren Vache, Ruby Braff, Rosemary Clooney, the Concord Jazz All-Stars, or George Wein's Newport Jazz Festival All-Stars. Other than a few sessions for Famous Door and Progressive, Hamilton has recorded a long string of dates for Concord that are notable for their consistency and solid swing. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

This is just what my soul needed tonight. Thank you.
awesome tone, lots of feeling
Ah, what memories... caught him and Vache in Toronto back in the 80's. Sounded great in a small tavern.
Beautiful smooth jazz.
Very nice and relaxing.
scott is a worthy disciple of prez...

His work with Dave McKenna really swings. Love that stuff.

Saw him and met him back in the 70's at the Concord Jazz festival and then again at Garden City in San Jose CA .He is great ,like Webster .I don't need any one else .....Jim Danna

LOVE THIS GUY! Listened to him when he was a kid, GREAT!
You can add any of SH to the agenda anytime - smooth like the GREAT Stan Getz.
Since Zoot and Al and Brew Moore are gone, it's wonderful that Scott Hamilton is keeping the lovely swinging sounds of Pres alive.

Being a tenor sax player myself I can appreciate the challenge of putting out good sound music on a big horn without overloading the ear. Hamilton is way smooth and silkie - nice sound with great depth, emotion and mood. Lovely!

Nice, a very generous careful musician in small group live performance. Wish we still got to see him frequently in New England
He used to play with Dave McKenna at Chan's Jazz and Egg Roll in Woonsocket when he went home to RI. Scott & Harry Allen are great together!
I love his music. What a great jazz musician.
How can anyone not like this artist's tenor sax talent?
I like the Tenor Shoes album the best. There's a lot of good stuff on the Double Play albums too. I'll probably revisit these albums from time to time the rest of my life. They'll become classics and they'll never die. Thanks for your contribution to the jazz world!
Scott is THE best. I used to hear him at Allary's in Providence, along with Dave McKenna.
Great smooth tone, beats rap all to hell!!!

No matter what anyone else says, it's STILL OK to play pretty music. Thanks Scott.
good stuff, reminds me of the late/great Dexter Gordon.

smooth sound, that's what I call REAL smooth jazz! Sorry, that's still insulting isn't it?
His solo on Autumn Leaves was the first solo I ever transcribed! Keeping the flame alive along with Davern, Peplowski, Vache and Alden. Proves that you have to go back to the beginnings to really play the idiom.

Joe is a true guitar artist. His style,improv and technique make listening
to him a real pleasure.

JUST GREAT !!!!!
Really great music for those slow,lazy, relaxed evenings!
Love Scott Hamilton, been a fan of his for over twenty years. Checked in at a number of his live concerts in Rhode Island and Bath, Maine.
