Scott Hamilton and Rossano Sportiello: Midnight at Nola's Penthouse
Scott Hamilton - tenor sax Rossano Sportiello - piano
Duke Ellington once told me that "the sound of a musician is his soul." I have rarely heard two such compatible jazz storytellers as soul brothers Scott Hamilton and Rossano Sportiello. From the start of this session, you're in the pocket—with Scott and Rossano —of jazz romance, the lyrical swinging memories and expectations of the intimacy that makes even this fractured world go round.
—From the album notes by Nat Hentoff, the dean of jazz critics.
