The new Lionel Hampton Big Band features Jason Marsalis on vibraphone and world-class musicians who played with Hamp himself: Cleave Guyton Jr., Lance Bryant, and Christian Fabian.

“Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Quincy Jones, Oscar Peterson, Dizzie Gillespie—they all played with Hamp,” says Lance Bryant, the last musical director for Lionel Hampton. “Now new audiences are finding out what made him so popular. We know the secret—we all played with him—and we do all the original arrangements that made him a star.”
