Album Review

During the 1990s, Los Angeles-based drummer Jeff Hamilton led a trio that was similar in style to that headed by his former boss, bassist Ray Brown. His group, which in 1994 featured pianist Larry Fuller and bassist Jesse Murphy, works out colorful transitions between sections, arranged touches that give their versions of standards their own personality. Fuller sounds a bit like Oscar Peterson and Benny Green in spots, Murphy is solid in both support and in his short solos, and Hamilton is as subtle and swinging as always. This CD is a good example of the Jeff Hamilton Trio's music.
