AllMusic Review by

A capital D Discovery, after a lifetime playing local gigs in Birmingham (Eng., not AL), sax-player Hamilton plays an Anglo-Jamaican jazz hybrid that is never fully any one style except his own. Starting with a gorgeous Professional Uhuru style highlife, he moves through some nice, bluesy jazz and some Cubanesque reggae/mento-jazz that would flip your wig if it didn't work so well.
