Chico Hamilton Trio Introducing Freddie Gambrell is an album by drummer and bandleader Chico Hamilton released on the World Pacific label. Freddie Gambrell was a little known West Coast pianist playing at San Franciscos Bop City club when, in 1956, Chico Hamilton heard him for the first time. I was so impressed while listening to him play that I felt I must play with this guywhich often happens to a musician when he hears something that he really digs, especially if he is right there when its happeningand so I did, said Hamilton. Gambrells fresh, lively talent was immediately accepted throughout the jazz scene when his playing was heard on his first album, under Chico Hamiltons leadership.
