ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Hamiltonia" samples Foreststorn "Chico" Hamilton's original compositions from four albums released in 2006 in celebration of his 85th B-day. Guiding his "Euphoria" sextet on a journey drawn from a different harmonic palette, penning melodies for them to sing with long memorable lines, all set over Hamilton's signature rhythms, "Hamiltonia" shows the octogenarian Hamilton to STILL be the studious teacher.

"Hamiltonia" is an impassioned statement of purpose- an emphatic endorsement of writing and performing THIS music in the NOW, the way the GREATS did in their time. Recognized as a "NEA Jazz Master", saluted by the Kennedy Center as a "Living Jazz Legend", and recently appointed to the National Council on the Arts, "Hamiltonia" confirms Hamilton's status as one of the most important living jazz artists and composers.
