Jeff Hamilton would definitely be on my “Desert Island Playlist.” He is one of my favorite musicians to listen and watch and if you have never heard him play, stop reading this now and go buy one of his albums. He has played with everyone and currently tours with Diana Krall. This interview is worth every minute. Find an hour this weekend and watch part 1 and 2 (below).

These videos are from the Snapshot Foundation. They have a large collections and videos on their site, including some with Steve Schick. Be warned, you will spend a lot of time watching if you venture over to their site.
