Milt Hinton

Unknown

Milt Hinton was a dear friend and jazz legend.  We performed many jazz festivals together and he was on my Christmas Album.  I brought him to the Clearwater Jazz Festival for his 80th birthday and we performed for almost 10,000 people that night.  I had the local radio station give him a plaque for his achievements in jazz and we all sang happy birthday.  What a night and i miss him dearly and  I am honored at all the support he gave me in my career :

“Glenn Zottola — Top quality trumpet and saxophone. I’m pleased to add him to the list of musical giants I’ve played with. A great asset to the world of jazz.”
—Milt “Judge” Hinton

 

This is one of his signature pieces  “Old Man time” :
