Scott Hamilton’s career started in the late seventies. But the budding saxophonist explicitly did not devote himself to the fusion sounds that were en vogue at the time - Scott Hamilton plays classic swing. As if the forties never ended. Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young inspired the young American, who soon went out on tour with Benny Goodman and Rosemary Clooney and started leading his own bands. Hamilton's straight-ahead jazz sound has remained at the highest standard for decades; Downbeat magazine even wrote: "Scott Hamilton plays his tenor saxophone more inventively and with more swing than anyone else on the scene today". Now, on the eve of his 70th birthday, Scott Hamilton is coming to ELBJAZZ with his Dutch quartet. Very rarely have we heard standards sound so warm and rounded.
