Steamers Jazz Club In L.A. Hosts Jeff Hamilton Trio July 24th-25th
Renowned drummer Jeff Hamilton and his trio return to Steamers Jazz Club on Friday, July 24th and Saturday, July 25th.
In addition to his many recordings with Ray Brown, Jeff has been on nearly 200 recordings with artists such as Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Milt Jackson, Rosemary Clooney, Barbara Streisand, Mel Torme, John Pizzarelli, Benny Carter, Lalo Schifrin, George Shearing, Dr. John, Clark Terry, Gene Harris, Toshiko Akioshi, Scott Hamilton, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Keely Smith, Bill Holman, Herb Ellis, Barney Kessel and Mark Murphy.
Jeff is a frequent guest of the WDR Big Band in Cologne, Germany. He also appeared in Natalie Cole’s Great Performances PBS special, Unforgettable and an Oscar Peterson documentary, Life In The Key Of Oscar. His trio, whose new CD Symbiosis is set for a September 12th, also features pianist Tamir Hendelman and bassist Christoph Luty.
Originality is what versatile drummer Jeff Hamilton brings to the groups he performs with and is one of the reasons why he is constantly in demand, whether he is recording or performing with his trio, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, the Clayton Brothers or co-leading the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.
Jeff’s recording, It’s Hamilton Time (Lake Street Records), received enormous airplay while reaching #5 on the Gavin national jazz radio chart. His trio’s second release, Jeff Hamilton Trio Live! (MONS) was nominated by critics for best jazz recording in Germany in 1997. The trio’s second MONS release is entitled Hands On. Hamilton House / Live At Steamers (MONS) is the trio’s 2000 release. As well as recording and performing throughout the world, Jeff also teaches, arranges and composes.
