One of pianist Hampton Hawes' better sets, this CD reissue features Hawes during a European tour in a trio with bassist Jimmy Woode and drummer Art Taylor. Hawes both explores his bebop roots and contributes new material that shows that he was aware of McCoy Tyner and the more advanced players of the era. Among the highlights are "Blues Enough," "Sonora," "Blues For Bud" (which is one of five previously unreleased performances included in the 11 tracks) and "Spanish Steps." Recommended.
Whoever it is who wrote this iTunes review did a terrific job, in this case identifying an obscure collection of Hampton Hawes recordings as one of his best.
Agree with nobbs
Great piece of work, but how in the world would anyone in their right mind label this album in the Blues genre...some of the finest Jazz trio work IMHO.
