Hampton Hawes - At the Piano (1996) Retail CD
This was Hawes' last recording, which was released posthumously by Contemporary Records.It reveals a pianist in prime form, bluesy chords, and idiosyncratic stylings to the fore, particularly in a majestic version of Roberta Flack's pop song 'Killing me Softly with his song' that really swings.The interplay between the trio, Ray Brown and the late Shelly Manne is another reason to buy this album. They achieve a telepathic unity, and were superby produced by Lester Koenig which again, was a hallmark of Contemporary recordings.I also like the blues tour de force, 'Soul sign eight' and an interestingmore… exploration of 'Blue in Green'.Hawes comments on the liner notes reveal the extent of the fluctuating fortunes he experienced in his career. If you're an aficianado of trio jazz, you should sample this.
