LINLEY HAMILTON QUINTET
Linley Hamilton: trumpet Damien Evans: Bass; Julian Collarossi: Guitar, Johnny Taylor: piano; Dominic Mullan: drums.
Trumpeter Linley Hamilton has been a mainstay of the Northern Irish jazz scene for well over two decades. An in-demand session musician, Hamilton has played on over a hundred recordings of various stripes, lending his burnished tone to rock and pop artists and singer-songwriters alike. But it’s as a jazz musician, jazz educator, jazz radio broadcaster, and not least, as an utterly tireless advocate of the music that he’s best known. With a quintet comprised of some of the very best jazz musicians North and South of the border, Linley celebrates his latest CD release with this intimate lunchtime date featuring this tight and talented young band.
