This week on the Vinyl Vault, it’s a 1976 album from drummer Chico Hamilton simply entitled “Chico Hamilton and the Players.” Indeed, this Blue Note album features some great players including Black Arthur Blythe on alto and soprano saxophones, Steve Turre on electric bass and bass trombone, percussionist Abdullah, Will Connell, Jr. on alto sax and a 19-year-old Rodney Jones on guitar. Turre, Jones and Blythe, of course, went on to successful solo careers. This album showcases their talents from a time before they became leaders.
