For twenty-eight years, Charles Hamilton was Director of the world renowned Berkeley High School Jazz Program.  His keen ear, musical understanding, and his ability to interpret great jazz resulted in his mentoring and inspiring some of the world’s most sought after musicians, in jazz as well as rock and other genres.

Charles is now stepping back onto the stage with his own music.  About his recent CD  Mr. Hamudah
“I think this is just a brilliant release!”

This is a fine group with very strong sidemen. 
It’s just a great way to kick off the holiday season!
