Chico Hamilton's drumming is so distinct in the fact that he has the PERFECT feel for other musicians and is rare in his "less is more" jazz drumming strategy. If you like that 1960s, soundtrack-y feel you hear when they shot a scene at a teen dance, or if you like bluesy jazz, the Dealer is a great album. I am not minimizing how great this is by the soundtrack compairson. A lot of this is bluesy boogaloo, fantastic dance music driven by Chico Hamilton's perpulsive drums. All of this is extremely well played. But what makes The Dealer so good is-do I even have to tell you, Larry Coryell. Coryell is an interesting choice here; this is pretty straight forward music. Hamilton could have as easily drafted Wes Montgomery, Joe Pas, Kenny Burrel, any.

It's imperative to point out Chico Hamilton’s The Dealer is a rather particular listen. The album’s first half makes it seem like an upbeat, feel good representation of jazz. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; it is soul-filled music that feels revitalizing at the very least. Rather, it sounds like they are very experienced and only paying homage to more traditional forms of jazz. This is well showcased on A Trip; a cool and sleek feeling tune demanding of an attentive listen. However, the album gradually descends into an off kilter aura. As if on a downward sanity spiral, the band is acquiring some kind of craze. The most glaring example of said craze is on the stunning Thoughts, where a bizarre, experimental approach is used to tremendous effect. This marks a definite tonal change on the album. From then on, it becomes even more erratic.
