Scott Hamilton-Jan Lundgren Quartet: Classics

A perfect match, that’s how the combination of Scott Hamilton – Jan Lundgren can be described. Swinging jazz music of the highest quality. The interplay between Lundgren and Hamilton is tight and telepathic. Harmony, sound, groove and structure goeshand in hand, so you’d think they’ve been playing together all their lives.

For more than 15 years, Scott Hamilton has had a unique collaboration with one of Europe’s best jazz pianists, Jan Lundgren, who is currently artistic director of both jazz house Montmartre in Cph. as well as the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival. In the company of bassist Hans Backenroth and drummer Kristian Leth, they have been viewed as one of the most cohesive groups in scandinvian jazz. Together, the four musicians have released several albums that are all considered to be among the best byScott Hamilton.
The most recent album is “Classics”. For the first time, Scott Hamilton tackles melodies and themes from classical music. Works by Chopin, Debussy and Dvorak have been expertly treated and arranged especially for this jazz quartet. It has all resulted in a completely cast and well-worked album with one that documents in the best possible way a close-knit Scott Hamilton-Jan Lundgren Quartet.
