O’s Notes: Drummer Jeff Hamilton leads a trio with Tamir Hendelman on piano and bassist Christoph Luty. They perform eight standards and one original, Jeff’s “Samba De Martelo”, one of our preferred selections. Luty uses a bow to set a lazy mood for “Blues in the Night”. Hamilton is one of the most melodic drummers on today’s jazz scene and he maintains a strong sense of swing throughout the set as well as adding rich punctuation. We especially enjoyed his work on “Midnight Sun” and “Fascinating Rhythm”.
