Eddie Higgins Quartet SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES Vinyl Record - 180 Gram Pressing

Eddie Higgins Quartet SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES Vinyl Record - 180 Gram Pressing
This CD reached a number one chart position in Japan. The ever-classy Eddie Higgins Trio is joined throughout by the superb Scott Hamilton, a fluid tenorist in the romantic tradition of Lester Young and Ben Webster, with soul-touching low notes and never a squawk or squeal. Borrowing the perfect image from master critic Whitney Balliett, Hamilton's sound is like "firelit mahogany." All the playing here is elegant and swinging: classic material delivered lovingly and without cliché. Higgins' gentle improvisations are often as beautiful as the original melodies (see, for example, his introduction and solos on the title track). He's also unique in his use of Bach-inspired counterlines to add depth and interest to the harmony; this is particularly evident on the faster tunes like "It's a Lonesome Old Town" and "Lullaby of the Leaves," where these left-hand figures supply extra propulsion and support for Hamilton's solos.
