Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Quintet (Pacific Jazz 1225) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good ... $11.99
A classic from the west coast scene of the 50s – and not to be confused with other similar-titled Chico Hamilton albums at the time! This one sports an abstract painting on the cover, and was recorded in 1956 at the Forum Theater in Los Angeles – not live, but using the space as a very ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy HamiltonIt's About Time ... LP
Swingville, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99

Scott HamiltonSwinging Young Scott ... LP
Famous Door, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the earliest albums as a leader from tenorist Scott Hamilton – definitely the young talent promised in the title, but already one with a very traditional sense of tone and timing!

✨✧ Jan HammerOh, Yeah? ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A jamming little set from Jan Hammer – but one that's still a lot better than most of his other work!

Lionel HamptonHamp's Big Four ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Although Lionel Hampton's always best remembered for his storming swing days in the early 40s, we love him on records like this one – an easy open-ended straight jazz session from the 50s, with lots of room for soloing in a much more jazz-oriented vein than you'll hear on Hamp's early records. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonJam Session In Paris ... LP
