Tributes: Chico Hamilton

Monday, December 02, 2013

Chico Hamilton was a triple threat – a drummer, bandleader, and composer, whose smooth, understated style led to California’s cool jazz sound. He was a charter member of Gerry Mulligan’s quartet before founding his own quintet.  And he wrote the music for Roman Polanski’s 1965 film, Repulsion. He died at the age of 92. You can still hear his interview with Leonard Lopate in August of 2007 below.
