1. The life and career of Jazz musician Andy Hamilton are quite remarkable - even by Jazz standards!

Born in 1918, in Port Maria in Jamaica, his first exposure to music was through the church and a family piano. As early radio broadcasts from the USA were received across the Caribbean, Andy heard the original music of what became known as The Jazz Age in the 1920's.
