The Dealer is a 1966 release by jazz drummer/bandleader Chico Hamilton. It was first released by Impulse! Records and has been subsequently reissused on CD with the addition of bonus tracks from Chic Chic Chico, Definitive Jazz Scene Vol. 3 and Passin' Thru. The bonus tracks feature different line-ups to that of the album, including Charles Lloyd and Gábor Szabó. In the 1960s, Chico Hamilton recorded six albums for Impulse! Records, The Dealer and Man from Two Worlds are the only two to be reissued on CD. The bonus track, "El Toro" is also featured on the Impulsive! Unmixed compilation. The packaging takes the form of a digipack-styled case with a 12-page booklet featuring the original liner notes and photographs. All tracks are originals, composed by Hamilton and some arranged by Jimmy Cheatham. The exceptions are "For Mods Only", composed by free jazz saxophonist Archie Shepp, who features on the track playing piano; some licks played by guitarist, Larry Coryell, from which Mick Taylor later used with The Stones; and "Larry of Arabia" by Larry Coryell, here supposedly making his first recording.
