“Think of this as my personal tribute to the influences of my influences”. Michael Hamilton is very pleased with his latest EP “Nu Jazz”. Hamilton is a guitarist, bassist and aspiring audio engineer living in Glasgow, Scotland. He works mainly as a session musician, but also makes his own music.
“I’m by no means a “jazz musician”, but I have always held an appreciation for jazz as the embodiment of the principles upon which I base my own compositions: expression, experimentation, innovation. Rather than being original compositions, “Nu Jazz” features 4 somewhat unorthodox arrangements of some of my favourite jazz standards. The tracks are largely a mixture of math-, prog-, and post-rock, but also incorporate more of the electronic elements that I tend to apply to other projects, as well as vocals from the extremely talented Aynsley Murphy.”
