The reviewer that wrote "every other track is supermarket noise" did not look very deep into this brilliant recording. Every single note of every single track is deeply thought out, and proves that Garrett can play any style just as well or better than any other sax player.

He shows his incredible viruosity on the first track, tacit dance. He displays his sensitivity on the second track, Spanish-Go-Round. It only gets better from there. This is hard-bop at its greatest. Only ignorance could mistake this man's music for "elavator noise." Listening to this recording 100 times, one can hear something new each time. The incredible thing is the amount of interaction and intellectual content that these men put into each track. Though these pieces may be "groovy", Garrett plays them as though he is playing "Giant Steps" and "Niama." This is truly one of his best recordings.

Kenny Garrett has been thrust to the top of the jazz world through his recent successes, including SONGBOOK and PURSUANCE:THE MUSIC OF JOHN COLTRANE. Many critics overlook this album as one of his great successes. BLACK HOPE was my first exposure to Kenny, and he has been a great influence on my playing ever since. Kenny burns up the track with legend Joe Henderson on COMPUTER G(check out the trading four section on this one)and BYE BYE BLACKBIRD. I also love his original TACIT DANCE and he rolls off an unbelievable solo on JACKIE AND THE BEANSTALK. A must have album for any Kenny fan.

Kenny Garrett is a young sax player that is changing the way the sax is played. Nobody played like him before. He puts his own style in everything. His playing outside has undeveloped jazz ears confussed but for the true jazzman his solos are stunning. He is quite diffrent in that he varies from typical jazz. His title song is a party beat, while his final song Last Sax (named so because he was the last sax to play with Miles Davis) is a bluesy "Davis" feel. This is certainly worth listening to!!

Kenny Garrett's most UNDERRATED album, Black Hope offers a tinge of what Garrett is about: Scorching blues-derived sound over various jazz and R&B rhythms. This is Garrett AFTER Miles and Blakey...

"Black Hope" was an excellent contribution to jazz in the 1990s, and holds up very well today. The energy between Kenny Garrett and Joe Henderson is powerful, the compositions are strong, the group dynamic is first-rate, and-- very remarkably-- we get to hear what happens when Kenny Kirkland brings his electric keyboard sounds into a jazz small group situation (although most of the record still features his acoustic piano). I think the results are great: the textures on the more R&B-oriented material are beautiful, and the percussive, subtle synth sounds on the funkier material grooves hard, as does the whole band. Brilliant album, essential for a fan of either Kenny.

Kenny is probably the greatest alto saxophonist on the scene today. Whatever genre he enters from burning Giant Steps to gut bucket funk, he plays with absolute authority, ownership, and creativity. This recording also features great peformances by the late Kenny Kirkland, an absolute monster on the piano, and the late saxophone master Joe Henderson.
