A return of Scott Hamilton and his regular Quartet to Chichester, as part of his January 2022 visit to the UK.

Scott, originally from Providence, Rhode Island and attracted to the sound of Johnny Hodges, moved to New York in 1976. During his long career, he got to work and learn from people like Roy Eldridge, Illinois Jacquet, Vic Dickenson, Jo Jones, later joining Benny Goodman, with whom he continued to work at different times until the early 1980s. He formed his own quartet in 1977 and began recording with the Concord label. More than forty albums later he is still recording for them, several with his regular British Quartet of John, Dave and Steve. He now lives in Italy.
