Remembering Andy Hamilton

Andy Hamilton, a sensational jazz sax player, passed away on June 3 at the age of 94.  Originally from Jamaica, he stowed away on a banana boat and travelled to the UK.  He paid his dues ( a 14 day jail term for this transgression) and left jail to pursue his music.  This guy was the real deal as you will hear in the 2 clips I have inserted here.  Wow, wow, wow!!!!

Here he is playing his song, “Orocabessa” in 2007 at the age of 89.
