About Ed Hamilton

Ed programmed jazz at KPFK and was a contributor to Ira Sabin's Radio Free Jazz (predecessor to JazzTimes), and has written on Jazz since 1969, and interviewed many significant icons of the Post-Bop era. Hopefully, my writings will help preserve the musical legacies for true jazz purists.
