Mick Hamer: in black and white
Black and white notes: Mick Hamer at home behind the piano

The Monday afternoon sessions at the Paris House, one of Mick’s regular gigs, have their own facebook page—Jazz on a Monday afternoon—with details of forthcoming gigs.

Mick often works at the Paris House with Al Nicholls, one of the best swing tenor player in the country, and the delightful local songstress Jo Kimber. Gerry Higgins is a regular on bass.  All three of them have their own websites and can be heard on the sound samples on the music page.

There is a sample of Al Nicholls playing Just Friends on the music page, where you can also find Jo Kimber singing Skylark and Gerry Higgins playing on Days of Wines and Roses. Click on their names to visit their websites.
