Scott Hamilton came on the scene during the 1970s, when Disco and Fusion ruled the jazz landscape. His tenor saxophone style completely bypassed that era and looked back to the time when Swing and Bop musicians such as Charlie Parker, Ben Webster and Lester Young played side by side. Hamilton hasn't changed his approach over the past twenty-five years, and he really doesn't need to. Like pianist Oscar Peterson, Hamilton plays at a consistent level of excellence. He is something of an institution on the Concord Jazz label, playing with Benny Carter, Gerry Mulligan, Cal Tjader and countless others.
