FEBRUARY 1998

Joyous Shout! is proud to announce that Ovation, the new cable arts network, the presenter of the North American TV debut of the Chico Hamilton documentary film, DANCING TO A DIFFERENT DRUMMER, and will be shown February 21, 1998 at 11 PM Eastern Time. Throughout this past Fall, Chico and his Euphoria group performed a SOLD OUT performance on the JAZZ AT WOODSTOCK series, and performed on their first tour in Greece to SOLD OUT audiences for 7 nights in Athens, and 1 night each in Kastoria and Thessaloniki. We are looking forward to an imminent announcement of a new recording deal for Chico, and building upon the successes of the last few years we feel that 1998 will really be a remarkable year in the further adventures of Chic, Chic, Chico!!

In 1997, Chico and his Euphoria group were honored to spend 5 days in Albi, France where Chico was Artist in Residence (doing clinics, master classes, a performance with a local big band doing arrangements of his music, and several shows with his Euphoria group), and if you will remember Chico's 10 city tour of France in 1996 was declared the Cultural Event of the Month by a national daily newspaper.Ê Also in 1997 was a 7 day tour of the UK with barnstorming dates in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle,Liverpool,Ê Cambridge, Birmingham, Norwich and London. In London Chico also shot a feature for the NBC Europe show 'Talking Jazz' which will be shown this coming Fall, following up on the success of the European premiere of the documentary film 'Chico Hamilton-Dancing To A Different Drummer' on the French/German ArtsNetwork ARTE which was seen by 165,000 viewers.

We are also happy to bring to your attention Chico being selected as an honoree for the New School/Mannes 1997 'Beacons in Jazz Awards', in recognition for his 'significant contribution to the evolution of jazz.' Still reverberating is all the talk about the incendiary performances by Chico and his Euphoria group Summer of 1996 at the Festival Int'l De Jazz De Montreal (broadcast throughout all of Canada by CBC French Radio), at the Ford Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival on two different stages in one day (broadcast throughout all of the US by NPR), at the Lincoln Center Out-Of-Doors Festival for 9000 people, at the Brecon Jazz Festival (broadcast throughout Wales on BBC Wales) in Wales, and Chico's first ever performance in Portugal on the Jazz Em Agosto Festival.

Also continuing is Chico's impressive run in the Down Beat Reader's Poll placing his 'Arroyo' CD in the 'Jazz Album of the Year' category in 1992, his 'Dancing To A Different Drummer' solo drum CD in the 'Jazz Album of the Year' category in 1995, his Euphoria group placing in the 'Electric Jazz Group' category again in 1997 and the past 6 years, and Chico himself placing in the 'drums' category several times in the past 5 years.

Thanks.

Peace.

Keep the Faith.
