Remembering Chico Hamilton

The Chico Hamilton Quintet perform "Gengis" off their 1973 album "The Master."

Personnel:

Stu Gardner, organ
Lowell George, slide-guitar
Kenny Gradney, bass
Sam Clayton, congas
Simon Nava, congas
Chico Hamilton, drums

Thinking his place in history among the great jazz composers Chico Hamilton formed a quintet in 1955, now considered one of the last important West coast bands.

This unusual group was originally comprised of Buddy Collette on flute and guitarist Jim Hall, with Fred Katz cello and Jim Aton on double bass.

Hamilton toured with the new band until the mid-'70s with a number of changes in personnel along the way.
