O’s Notes: The Inquiring Mind was the last recording made by legendary drummer Chico Hamilton at 92 just weeks before he passed On November 25, 2013. He left us at peace performing until the end. In Chico’s own words he was “playing what I want to play, how I want to play it”. Hamilton’s “playing” has warmed the hearts of many. This recording is packed with 19 songs that touch bop, salsa, waltz and the blues. It is a fitting curtain call for one of the greatest Latin jazz drummers.
