The Chico Hamilton Trio

Fresh Sound Records

Howard Roberts, Jim Hall (g), George Duvivier (b), Chico Hamilton (d)

Reference: FSRCD 471

Bar code: 8427328604710

These are among the most resourceful jazz trio sessions recorded on the West Coast during the prolific Fifties, replete with all the power, invention and tremendous feeling of the original Chico Hamilton trio. Chicos drumming is superbly complemented by the remarkable musicianship of veteran bassist, George Duvivier, and by two highly creative thennewcomers: guitarists Howard Roberts (1-8) and the great Jim Hall (9- 11). Notable for its consistently imaginative interplay, the playing is also characterized by a surprisingly extensive range of dynamics, tone colors, and rhythmic devices for a trio with this instrumentation. And the writing, variety throughout. Marked by Hamiltons taste, intelligence and innate sense of drama, the set as a whole adds up to an unforgettable musical experience.
