Scott Hamilton & Martin Sasse Trio
Scott Hamilton (saxophone), Martin Sasse (piano), Jos Machtel (bass), Joost van Schaik (drums)
Martin Sasse has worked with virtually every legend in international jazz throughout his stage career, including Al Foster, Jimmy Cobb, Steve Grossman and Lee Konitz, and has long been considered one of the preeminent jazz pianists in Europe himself. His regular partners include Philip Catherine, Peter Bernstein, Harry Allen and Scott Hamilton. He has released 12 albums under his own name and plays as a guest on countless recordings and concerts worldwide. Sasse has played at all the major festivals, including with world stars such as Bobby McFerrin, Tommy Emmanuel and Sting. Concert tours have taken him as far as Japan, China, the USA and Egypt.
With his trio, he is joined tonight by one of the last world stars of the swing saxophone: Scott Hamilton. Hamilton played in Benny Goodman's orchestra, recorded with Al Cohn, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Red Norvo and many others.
Scott Hamilton's own albums appear on the famous Concord Records label.
Sein Stil ist beeinflusst von Ben Webster und Don Byas und orientiert sich an den klassischen Swing-und Mainstream-Saxophonisten wie Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young und Zoost Sims.
