AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton’s debut for Concord (which has been reissued on CD) alerted the jazz world to the young swing stylist and predated Wynton Marsalis’ first record (and the emergence of the Young Lions) by a couple years. Hamilton, who mixed together Zoot Sims and Ben Webster to form his own recognizable tone, already sounded in prime form for this set.

Teamed up with trumpeter Bill Berry, pianist Nat Pierce, bassist Monty Budwig, and drummer Jake Hanna, Hamilton essentially launched the revival of mainstream jazz with this record. Highlights include “Indiana,” “Stuffy,” “Broadway,” and “Blue Room,” but all eight selections are quite enjoyable.

Tracklist:
01. That’s All (3:49)
02. Indiana (5:16)
03. Stuffy (4:18)
04. Exactly Like You (4:39)
05. Ill Wind (4:06)
06. Broadway (4:24)
07. Blue Room (4:07)
08. Sometimes I’m Happy (6:26)
