LOTS OF MEMORIES WITH THIS CD
Carl W. Sundstrom | San Diego, CA | 03/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"WHEN I WAS A STUDENT AT UVM IN BURLINGTON, VT, CIRCA 1959, I PURCHASED THIS VINYL ALBUM AT A SMALL RECORD STORE THERE. THE MUSIC WAS DIFFERENT FROM ANY OF THE JAZZ RECORDS I OWNED AND I CAME TO LOVE THIS ALBUM AND THE WHOLE CHICO HAMILTON EXPERIENCE. IN ABOUT 2003 I PURCHASED THE MOSAIC CD COLLECTION OF "THE COMPLETE PACIFIC JAZZ RECORDINGS OF THE CHICO HAMILTON QUINTET" WHICH CONTAINED ALL THE TUNES ON THIS CD BUT INTERSPERSED SOMEWHAT WILLY-NILLY THROUGHOUT THIS SIX CD SET. THEN, SEVERAL WEEKS AGO I SAW THAT OLD FAMILIAR COVER OF THE "CHICO HAMILTON QUINTET IN HI FI" ON [...] AND IT STIRRED LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES SO I ORDERED IT. IT WAS WONDERFUL TO HEAR THOSE OLD FAMILIAR TUNES IN THEIR SO FAMILIAR ORDER, IN SUCH AMAZING CLARITY AND BRILLIANCE, COMPARED TO MY OLD VINYL RECORDING WHICH HAD SEEN BETTER DAYS. THIS IS A FABULOUS CD. IT IS THE ESSENCE OF WHAT CHICO HAMILTON'S MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT. BUY THIS CD AND YOU WILL BE A FAN OF THIS FINE MUSICIAN FOR LIFE. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
