The Dick Morrissey Quartet - Here and Now and Sounding Good & Storm Warning! by Dick Morrissey. by Dick Morrissey and Harry South. Acropolis 2CD SET by Ian Hamer, Tubby Hayes, Dick Morrissey, Alan Skidmore (2005-01-31). by Ian Hamer, Tubby Hayes, Dick Morrissey, Alan Skidmore.
Acropolis also found Hamer in the company of saxophonists Tubby Hayes and Dick Morrissey, and the John Coltrane-inspired Alan Skidmore. If the clamorous sound of the late Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers was also audible in Hamer's arrangements, they were delivered with a panache that reflected the British scene's coming-of-age. In 1997, Hamer appeared on Wheeler's atmospheric all-brass album for ECM Records, A Long Time Ago. Though in semi-retirement in Brighton, Hamer led the Sussex Jazz Orchestra and based a demanding rep-ertoire on classics by Wheeler, Hayes, Tracey and himself, and on the legacy of Count Basie's music represented by the Jones-Lewis band's charts. Leading from the front, and inspiring a mixed-ability lineup by a mixture of cajoling and dry wit, he often drew crackling performances from the band.
