  • Description

    Linley Hamilton's legendary hospitality has been enjoyed by a growing cohort of international jazz musicians whenever they visit at his Magy's Farm venue-cum-homestead deep in his native Ulster within sight of the mountains of Morne.

    His tireless efforts as a promoter, radio host, educator and all round champion of the music are so effective that his main gig as a trumpeter and composer is sometimes overlooked. Ginger's Hollow places Linley the musician back in the spotlight where he belongs, at the helm of a transatlantic team to present an album of pure musical good vibes.

    Under his leadership, Dublin based pianist/composer Cian Boylan and first call session saxophonist Derek 'Doc' O'Connorare reunited with US legends Adam Nussbaum on drums and Pat Metheny/Gil Evans sideman Mark Egan on bass, and the mutual respect and sheer good fellowship that they share comes through loud and clear in this set of original tunes with the emphasis on openness, accessibility and positivity.
