Chico Hamilton "Juniflip" CD w/ Mini-LP Cover Always HIP and ever the consummate MODERNIST, Chico brings us a swinging affair on 'Juniflip', featuring his "Euphoria" group with Cary DeNigris on guitar, Paul Ramsey on bass, Evan Schwam on flute, tenor & soprano saxes, Karolina Strassmayer on flute, alto & soprano saxes, Andrew Hadro on flute, alto & bartone saxes, and Jeremy Carlstedt on percussion. With special guest appearances from: legendary Love front-man Arthur Lee on 'What's Your Story Morning Glory?'; criminally under-rated vocalist (and successful actor) Bill Henderson on two tracks including the Benny Goodman classic 'Don't Be That Way' which receives a balladic treatment; and former Hamilton band members trombonist George Bohanon and bass trombonist Jimmy Cheatham augmenting Chico's working 'Euphoria' group on five tracks- including the Jo Jones swing of 'Mr. Hamilton'; the chamber-like opening (reminiscent of Chico's group of the 50's) of another swinger on 'Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That'; and Chico's signature 'Conquistadors' groove on 'Yeh Yeh (for Carlos Santana)'. Each guest lends his unique and distinct voice to the different journey that is 'Juniflip'. Thru every track Chico invites the listener along on a SINGULAR, SINGING and SWINGING adventure!!
