Jeff Hamilton Trio Concert From Jazz Port Townsend


The Jeff Hamilton Trio played a rollicking, spirited and swinging concert at Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend on the last weekend of July.  Playing for a near capacity audience in the 1200 seat McCurdy Pavilion at Fort Worden, the trio had listeners bouncing in their seats for most of the concert, culminating in a standing ovation for an encore. The complete Jazz Port Townsend concert by The Jeff Hamilton Trio will air exclusively on Sunday, August 19 at 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 KNKX and simultaneously stream

Led by drummer Jeff Hamilton, a veteran performer and educator since 1980 at Jazz Port Townsend, the trio includes Tamir Hendelman on piano and Jon Hamar on bass.  In addition to his own trio, Jeff Hamilton has toured and recorded with Ray Brown, Gene Harris, the L.A.Four and many others, and co-leads the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. He has appeared on nearly 200 recordings.","_id":"0000017a-8d21-d4f4-a97b-af2b1f1a0001","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">">","_id":"0000017a-8d21-d4f4-a97b-af2b1f1a0001","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">
