Chico Hamilton - Collection.

Chico Hamilton, nome artístico de Foreststorn Hamilton (Los Angeles, 21 de setembro de 1921 - Nova York, 26 de novembro de 2013 foi um baterista de jazz norte-americano. 

Iniciou a carreira como clarinetista e durante a Segunda Guerra, estudou bateria com Jo Jones e leitura com Billy Exner. No final dos anos de 1940 tocou com Lionel Hampton, Duke Ellington, Count Basie e com Lena Horne (1948-1955). Também tocou com Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Billy Eckstein e Nat King Cole. 

Foi um dos membros do quarteto de Gerry Mulligan (1952-1953) e em 1955, formou seu primeiro quinteto, um grupo de jazz de câmara com Buddy Collette, além do guitarrista Jim Hall, o baixista Carson Smith e o violoncelista Fred Katz. 

Entre os músicos que participaram de seus grupos estão Larry Coryell (1966), Steve Potts (1967), Arthur Blythe, Paul Horn, Eric Dolphy, Steve Turre e Eric Person. Em 1987, passou a tocar com o grupo "Euphoria". 

O baterista começou a aparecer na Califórnia, associado ao cool jazz, em 1952, no histórico e primoroso quarteto (sem piano) Gerry Mulligan-Chet Baker — aquele de Line for Lyons, Bernie’s tune e Walkin’ shoes. Mas ficou famoso como líder de um conjunto integrado por Buddy Colette (saxes, clarinete, flauta), Jim Hall (guitarra), Fred Katz (violoncelo) e Carson Smith (baixo), que gravou, em agosto de 1955, o LP The Chico Hamilton quintet featuring Buddy Colette. 

Esse quinteto aliava, em suas composições e arranjos, aspectos formais da música erudita à criatividade imprevisível do jazz (A nice day e Blue sands, de Colette; The morning after, de Hamilton; The sage, de Katz). Nat Hentoff escreveu na Downbeat, há 55 anos, quando do lançamento desse LP hoje cult:

“O novo quinteto de Chico Hamilton é responsável por um dos mais estimulantes, consistentemente inventivos e únicos discos de jazz deste ou de qualquer ano recente”. 

O mesmo quinteto gravou mais um LP para a Pacific Jazz, em janeiro de 1956 (The C.H. Quintet in Hi-Fi) e, em outubro do mesmo ano, o baterista líder voltou ao estúdio, com Fred Katz e Carson Smith, mas com duas substituições: John Pisano no lugar de Jim Hall e Paul Horn no de Buddy Colette (The C.H. Quintet). 

Estes três discos ficaram fora dos catálogos por muito tempo. A Mosaic chegou a editar, em 1997, um box de 6 CDs, incluindo as demais formações do conjunto básico de Hamilton, responsável pela descoberta de jovens músicos que se tornariam, na década de 60, figuras de proa do jazz contemporâneo, como os saxofonistas Eric Dolphy e Charles Lloyd. No ano passado, a gravadora inglesa Avid lançou o CD duplo Three classic albums plus, reunindo os quintetos acima citados, com 10, 11 e 13 faixas, respectivamente, mais cinco registros de 1953 em trio, com Howard Roberts (guitarra) e George Duvivier (baixo). 

Os sofisticados quintetos de Chico Hamilton apareceram com destaque em dois filmes: A embriaguez do sucesso (Sweet smell of success), cult noir de Alexander Mackendrick, de 1957, com Burt Lancaster e Tony Curtis; Jazz on a Summer’s day, documentário antológico em que aparece a nata do jazz no Festival de Newport, em 1958. 

Em 2001, o então octogenário baterista apresentou-se no Free Jazz Festival (Rio-São Paulo), no leme do seu quinteto Euphoria — com dois saxes (Evan Schwan e Eric Lawrence), guitarra e baixo elétricos — esbanjando vigor e sua arte de notável percussionista. Mas a “euforia” era um tanto apelativa, em termos de concessões a um certo “roquismo” e até ao clima comercial da chamada new wave. Texto: Wikipédia e Jornal do Brasil.
