Editorial Reviews

2007 two CD collection features all three volumes on two discs! Recorded in just one night, from the late hours of November 12 to the early hours of November 13, 1956, this session is more like a live date than a trip to the studio, with no repeated numbers and, consequently, no alternate takes. While Hawes' was most often heard in a trio format, this release showcases the pianist in a quartet featuring the guitar magic of Jim Hall. 17 tracks. Definitive Records.

Let me start by stating without hestitation that this is an extraordinary album. Recorded in just one night in November of 1956, with no alternative takes, it literally is an "all night session", that has all the spontaniety and freshness of a live session, except without the crowd.
Hampton Hawes is a little known pianist mostly known for his work in his own trio, with drummer Chuck Thompson and bass player Red Mitchell.
Hampton has an easily identifiable style. He is free flowing, but without the flourish of such famous players such as Art Tatum or Errol Garner. He is technicaly brilliant and methodical, akin to Monk, but more delicate. It really is a mystery why Hampton (and several other brilliant pianists like Bobby Timmons and Tommy Flanagan) have never gotten their due. However, if I was going to make a case as to why Hampton is relevant, this album would be exhibit 1.
In these incredible recordings he is joined by the steady and competent Mitchell, Buz Freeman on drums and the very subtle but fantastic guitarist Jim Hall, who also has some really first rate and influential recordings.
The two discs contain over two hours of music. The sound is great, especially considering the time period. The song choices comprise familiar gems such as "April in Paris", "Groovin' High", "I'll Remember April" and "Will You Still Be Mine'. There are also some interesting selections such as Hampton's "Takin" Care" and Duke Jordan's fine "Jordu" which is an excellant start to the magic that follows.
As far as I am aware, this is the only gathering of this talent. The fact that it was recorded literally in one night and apparently so effortlessly, bespeaks of the immense talent at work here. This typ of album is really what jazz is all about.

Hampton Hawes is one of the great might-have-beens of contemporary jazz. (He wasn't the only one from that period, vide Elmo Hope, Sonny Clark, and maybe, Richard Twardzik, all dead -from drugs--too young.) A gifted and forceful pianist, Hawes kicked butt on blues and bop tunes and had a nice though usually heavy touch on ballads. (Listen to his duet album with Charlie Haden, As Long As There's Music, 1976.) Though always an exciting soloist, he wasn't all that original, either in the lines he spun out or in his approach to playing. Basically, he strung together alternate melodies based on chord changes, creating single note solos that reminded one of Bud Powell. Not as riff driven as his contemporary Horace Silver, he shared with Silver an exceptionally strong touch on the keys with a tendency to hit the notes on the very front edge of the beat. His attack lent urgency to whatever he played, especially to middle or up-tempo tunes, which constituted probably three-fourths of all he played! Again like Silver, his work was overlaid with more than a touch of funk, which was infectious.

Hawes flamed out, way too early, at forty-eight. He had lost three years of his career en route sitting in a federal prison cell, convicted of possession of heroin. Then, he died, way too young, of a stroke. Who knows what he could have done over a healthy life span. What we have left of him are beginner albums (which were good enough to win him Downbeat's New Artist award for trumpet one year) and fewer mature albums than one could wish had existed.

Hawes definitely had his moments.
