Drummer Chico Hamilton, who is still going strong at age 91, is a truely unique visionary. In 1955, when jazz was beginning to flourish in many different directions, Hamilton made history by adopting an entirely new quintet format which includes a single reed instrument, guitar, cello, bass and drums. The cellist Fred Katz, who would mostly play with the bow, was considered as one of the "front" players. Youg reed player Paul Horn was the second horn player of the group who replaced the inaugural member Buddy Collette. The main part of this compilation album, released in 1963, is the four tracks (Track 5 through 8) by that edition of the Chico Hamilton Quintet. The rest are taken from two earlier recording sessions. Tracks 1 and 2 were recorded in 1956 and features Hamilton's trio with the young Jim Hall, who was 25 years old at the time, and George Duvivier. Tracks 3 and 4 were recorded in 1954 with Howard Roberts and Duvivier.

Dan Nimmer Trio - Kelly Blue (2007) [Japan 2016] SACD ISO + Hi-Res FLAC

Dan Nimmer is an American jazz pianist and composer. As the title suggests, Nimmer's second release for Venus Records is a tribute to Wynton Kelly, who was a swingy, bluesy and funky genius and a groove master who worked with Miles Davis and others. Jimmy Cobb, the veteran drummer who played with Kelly in the historic "Kind of Blue" session, bridges the two generations and validates Nimmer's efforts with his impeccable groove.
