Not sure exactly how well known this man was but I certainly enjoyed meeting him and heaing him play a few times at the Corks Jazz Club. Sad to report that Andy Hamilton has died, June 3rd at 94 years old.

Big panic, thought you were referring to the writer/comedian.

Each man's death diminishes me.......................................

God Bless him......

This one really hurts me.
I don't think he released his 1st album until he was in his 70's. I listen to it regularly he has such a genuine sound.

Hi nl, I saw Mr Hamilton`s birthday bash on utube great player. Sadly I had not heard of this gentleman even though I had non-musical connections within the Birmingham club circuit in the 70s and generally got to know what was going on mostly on the pop side. Sad to hear the news. Regds N.
