Lionel Hampton Big Band / Featuring Joe Doubleday

Exciting, hard-swinging authentic jazz—that’s the new Lionel Hampton Big Band. These world-class musicians played with Lionel Hampton himself. The band plays all the Hampton hits, all the great arrangements, and tells some great stories about working with Hamp.

Co-Leaders Lance Bryant, Christian Fabian and Cleave Guyton Jr, who all played with Hampton, relaunched the band at the request of the Hampton Estate. The band just released their first CD, LIVE AT ROSSMOOR—a terrific combination of hard swinging tunes and funny stories about jazz at its peak.

“Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Quincy Jones, Oscar Peterson, Dizzie Gillespie—they all played with Hamp,” says Bryant, who was Hampton’s arranger and tenor chair with the band. “What made him so popular? We know the secret—we all played with him—and we do all the original arrangements that made him a star.”
