The Scott Hamilton Quartet
Legendary American tenor star Scott Hamilton back in Worcestershire, but appearing at Severn Jazz for the first time, is joined by his regular, all-star UK band. Hamilton was born in Rhode Island in 1954 and, after moving to New York, cut his teeth in Benny Goodman’s band. He soon formed his own quartet, got signed to the legendary Concord record label, and collaborated with the likes of Woody Herman, Tony Bennett, Warren Vache and George Wein’s Newport Jazz Festival All Stars. Now based in Italy, Scott regularly tours across Europe and beyond, playing mainstream jazz and standards of the highest quality.
