Jeff Hamilton Trio

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.
Jeff Hamilton (Drums / US)Tamir Hendelman (Piano / IL)Jon Hamar (Bass / US)

Jeff Hamilton's world-class drumming is characterized by being super swinging, very melodically performed with a touch, timing and a creativeness that one only experiences when a top of the line star occupies the scene. He is considered to be the most swinging drummer by many, and his CV clearly states that he is sought after by the big jazz icons. In 1977, he became a member of the Woody Hermans Orchestra, and from there recordings and tours all over the world started. L.A. Four, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Count Basie Orchestra and not the least Oscar Peterson, whose group he was a regular member of for 5 years, and Natalie Cole, where Hamilton contributed to the two Grammy winning releases "Unforgettable" and "Still Unforgettable". With him in the trio, Hamilton has the Israeli pianist Tamir Hendelman and countryman Christoph Luty on bass. Both musicians live in Los Angeles with impressive careers. The three of them really makes the trio format shine bright when they meet on stage!

Jeff Hamiltons verdensklasse trommespil er kendetegnet ved at være super swingende, meget melodisk udført med et touch, timing og en idérigdom, som man kun oplever, når en stjerne fra jazzens øverste hylde indtager scenen. Af mange anses han for at være den mest swingende trommeslager, og hans CV bevidner klart og tydeligt, at han er eftertragtet af de store jazzikoner. I 1977 blev han medlem af Woody Hermans Orchestra, og derfra gik det løs med indspilninger og turnéer over hele verden med bl.a. L.A. Four, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Count Basie Orchestra og ikke mindst Oscar Peterson, i hvis gruppe han var fast medlem af i 5 år, og Natalie Cole, hvor Hamilton medvirker på de to Grammy-vindende udgivelser ”Unforgettable” og ”Still Unforgettable”. Med sig i trioen har Hamilton den israelske pianist Tamir Hendelman og landsmanden Christoph Luty på bass. Begge musikere er bosiddende i Los Angeles med imponerende karrierer. Trio-formatet får virkelige lov at skinne igennem, når de tre mødes på scenen!
