Review: Jeff Hamilton has assembled one of the most meticulous and exciting small ensemble
of present day jazz. With the virtuosic pianist Tamir Hendelman and the redoubtable bassist
Christoph Luty working in swinging tandem alongside him, Hamilton-one of the most acclaimed
drummers of the past five decades-reasserts his role as an invaluable bandleader. No dull tracks.
