Jeff Hamilton - Drummer (HamiltonJazz.com) - "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 was entitled, Hands On. Hamilton House-Live at Steamers (MONS) was the trio’s 2000 release. As well as recording and performing throughout the world, Jeff also teaches, arranges and composes."

Jeff Hamilton: Swinging Support (HamiltonJazz.com) - "Jeff’s trio has continued to tour vigorously, including a stint on the star-studded StarVista Signature jazz cruise and a European tour that included performances in Russia and the Czech Republic. Outside his trio, he continues to co-lead the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, whose latest CD, L.A. Treasures Project, earned a Grammy nomination. He’s also been performing with Ryan Truesdell’s Gil Evans Project, a big band exploring works of the late, great arranger. And October saw the release of This Happy Madness (Cellar Live), a disc by tenor saxophonist Cory Weeds featuring the Jeff Hamilton Trio as honored guests."
