Guitarist Ed Hamilton explores new worlds with his debut album, Planet Jazz. His works are acoustic-based pieces, enhanced by synthesized textures and augmented by the hand-drum percussion of many different cultures. Hamilton's compositions vary from the quiet, gospel-like tones of Better Days Ahead to the dramatic sounds of the electric guitar on What Time Is It Now? Special guests include Charles Fambrough, Lenny White and George Howard and others.
Planet Jazz is the first release on the label Telarc Jazz Zone. Telarc Jazz Zone embraces the fresh sounds of contemporary jazz as it explores the broad arena of today's colorful jazz scene.
