Paris Jazz Club

Around 1975 appeared a white tenor saxophonist, Scott Hamilton, with Ben Webster's velvety sound and "prebop" phrasing, while all those of his age tried in the harsh style of Coltrane. His wise look and his "antique" tastes made the hipsters chuckle. Scott's art is to have amalgamated and crystallized the heritage of the past and modern non-modernist trends. in music, without grandiloquent speech, in all simplicity. By doing something new with old. A myth.
