Sweet Smell of… Murdoch

Back in 1957: an amazing premonition:

All we lack right now is the Chico Hamilton Quintet.

    Good clip. Just shows slimeballs are nothing new. Looked up Chico Hamilton he’s still recording at nearly 90. Don’t know about the rest of the quintet.

  2. Jim Denham said,

    Chico with the Gerry Mulligan Quartet in 1952, playing ‘Frensi’:

  3. Bruce Robinson said,

    Jim Hall is still alive and playing. I think John Pisano was in a later version of the CHQ but was interviewed in a recent documentary on Herb Alpert. Buddy Collette died about a year or two ago.

    Almost the whole of the original quintet featured on an album called ‘Reunion’ made, I think in the 90s.
