Chico Hamilton – “Mysterious Maiden”

Hopefully, somewhere before, in the middle, or after DJs bang us out with the latest sample/filter music-stuff, they will treat us to something musically that will fulfill our minds and emotions along with our feet. Through Chico Hamilton, Joe Clausell and Michael Bacchus offer us this limited edition premium vinyl pressing. A steady bassline churns along with beautiful violins, steel guitar and Hamilton on drums. Clausell’s signature percussion adds the perfect compliment to this masterpiece. Maybe the bludgeoning big room “beat down” should be supplemented (not eliminated) with selections that speak to other dancefloor desires – this jam is the answer.
