Lachy Hamilton Trio, features
Harry Morrison – Double Bass
Patrick Danao – Drums
Lachy Hamilton – Saxophone / Compositions
Hailing from the small community on Scotland Island, Sydney, Australia, Lachy Hamilton began playing the piano at the age of four. Taking up the clarinet, and then saxophone soon after, his musical journey has taken him around the world performing with the likes of James Morrison, Wycliffe Gordon, Kate Ceberano, James Muller, Sarah McKenzie, Patti Austin, The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and many more.
In March 2019, Hamilton released his debut album ‘Alchemy’. Inspired by Paolo Coelho’s novel The Alchemist, the album features the talents of Australia’s brightest up and coming musicians.
“[The Alchemist’s] ‘Urim and Thummin’ spawns a Hamilton tenor solo showing a striking ability to alchemise a liquid flow of ideas into a much more robust and compelling statement.” – John Shand (SMH 2019).
As James Morrison says: “with Hamilton, the future of jazz is in good hands”.
