Today's foremost propagator of warm-toned, swinging tenor saxophone, Scott Hamilton presents a tasty mix of (just as the title says) Blues, Bop & Ballads. From blues tunes like Duke Ellington's "Blue Harlem" to bebop classics like Thelonious Monk's "I Mean You" to ballad standards like "Skylark", Scott Hamilton & Friends make these tunes their own, infusing them all with Hamilton's signature, unerring swing. "Tenor saxophonist Hamilton is simply superb, a paragon of swing." - George Kanzler, Newark Star-Ledger FEATURING: Scott Hamilton - tenor saxophone Greg Gisbert - trumpet Joel Helleny - trombone (tracks 3, 5 & 6) Norman Simmons - piano Dennis Irwin - bass Chuck Riggs - drums Duke Robillard - guitars (tracks 2, 3 & 6)
