              NEA Jazz Master Foreststorn "Chico" Hamilton

June 6th, 2005
Further Adventures of El-Chico

Joyous Shout! is pleased to be offering Legendary Jazz Drummer and Bandleader and NEA Jazz Master Fellowship Recipient Foreststorn "Chico" Hamilton for engagements with Jazz Master Touring Initiative sites for the 2005/2006 season. These engagements are funded thru the NEA and thru matching grants from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Chamber Music America.
This past October Chico and his working "Euphoria" band performed a Jazz Masters Touring Initiative event presented by WBGO-FM Radio in Newark, NJ at the Newark Arts High School. Working with Thurston Briscoe of WBGO, Chico and his band members executed a concept where they spent a day with 20 students of the Arts High School Jazz Ensemble rehearsing head arrangements on 4 of Chico's original tunes plus Duke Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train", and the following day presented a concert which combined performances by Chico and his band with performances of the students performing the tunes and arrangements worked on the previous day, conducted by Chico. It was a WONDERFUL event, which was recorded by WBGO for future broadcast, and the evening was capped off with the students spontaneously performing two of Chico's tunes backstage during a group photo, BRILLIANT!!
Chico's 2005 started off with a quick jaunt to the West Coast to participate in the IAJE Convention, putting in a guest appearance with Jackie Harris' Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong Summer Camp All-Stars, and performing on the NEA Jazz Masters Award Ceremony & Concert with Geri Allen, and then continuing to Seattle with a two night stand with his "Euphoria" group at a WONDERFUL venue, The Triple Door. Chico's DEBUT appearance on the Playboy Jazz Festival in LA at the Hollywood Bowl is coming up June 12th. Continuing over the Summer Chico will be appearing: June 18th on another NEA Jazz Masters Touring Initiative event at the Artists Collective in Hartford, CT (w/ special guest vocalist Bill Henderson); July 7th on the Chicken Bone Beach Music Series on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ; August 18th on the Out-Of-Doors Festival at Lincoln Center in NYC; August 27th at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, NY; and August 30th for the season finale of Jazz Forum's Summer Series with a show at the City Hall Plaza in Mount Vernon, NY.Chico has several dates confirmed, and many other dates in the works, throughout the country thru the fall and into the winter.

We will be following up with you shortly to gauge your interest in formulating an event in your community for your 2005/2006 season, thru which YOUR STUDENTS & AUDIENCE can experience for themselves why Foreststorn "Chico" Hamilton is "Still THE Man" for EACH & EVERY GENERATION!!
