Scott Hamilton featuring Rossano Sportiello
Scott Hamilton featuring Rossano Sportiello
With a fat, buttery sound reminiscent of Ben Webster and Don Byas, tenor saxophone giant Scott Hamilton was at the forefront of a new generation of young artists that helped revitalize the sophisticated sound of small-group swing, ushering in the “young lion” jazz renaissance of the mid-1970s. Around that same time, award-winning Italian jazz pianist Rossano Sportiello was busy being born! Touted as “the best stride piano player” mentor Barry Harris has ever heard, echoes of Ralph Sutton, Dave McKenna, and Bill Evans can be heard in Sportiello’s rich and assured playing. With J.J. Shakur bass

This special concert will be recorded for a release on the Cellar Live imprint.
Thanks to the Italian Cultural Centre, Vancouver.
