A native of Providence, Rhode Island where he was born in 1954, Scott Hamilton is one of the great modern swing artists, following in the footsteps of greats such as Ben Webster and Don Byas.
In 1976 he had the good fortune to perform for several weeks alongside the great trumpeter Roy Eldridge. He also played with legendary saxophonist Illinois Jacquet.
At this year’s Vienna Jazz Fest Scott Hamilton will be performing with trombonist Dan Barrett, who previously worked as a sideman with greats such as Benny Goodman and Buck Clayton. Hamilton and Barrett will be swinging and playing traditional jazz for fans of all ages.
