The Friday night performance from the Jeff Hamilton Trio during Centrum’s Jazz Port Townsend will be broadcast on KPLU’s Jazz Northwest (88.5 FM), and streaming at kplu.org on Sunday, September 25 at 1 PM PDT.
Drummer Jeff Hamilton has played with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Woody Herman, Count Basie, Ray Brown and Oscar Peterson, and is co-leader (with Jazz Port Townsend Artistic Director John Clayton) of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. Hamilton is joined by Tamir Hendelman on piano and Christoph Luty on bass, who are popular in-demand sidemen with other groups as well.
All three musicians were also members of the faculty at the week-long workshop, which took place from July 24 to July 31 of 2011.
Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced exclusively for KPLU by Jim Wilke. A podcast of the show is available at kplu.org after the broadcast date. For more information, visit KPLU’s Jazz Northwest online.
