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.
That's how we grow.
