Excellent - as usual.,
This review is from: Dean Street Nights (Audio CD)
This is Scott Hamilton at his usual level of excellence. I've been listening to him/collecting his albums for around 36 years now, and whilst he never, ever, makes a poor album, he rarely makes one that is outstanding or special. But maybe this is a bit like saying that consistently good isn't enough. It occurred to me, listening to this album, how much like Paul Gonsalves he sounds.
My favourite recordings of Mr Hamilton are on the many albums he (and Warren Vache) did with Rosemary Clooney. Now they are outstanding.
There's nothing whatsoever to dislike about this album. His fellow musicians complement his playing. The programme is unexceptionable, and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" could well be the definitive instrumental version of this song. I bought this as an MP3 download, and at £4.99 it's a bargain.
