Essential Jazz Classics
Warning: Last items in stock!
This release presents Hampton Hawes’ complete original quartet album For Real (Contemporary S7589), featuring his first collaborations ever with saxophonist Harold Land (they would only record together again in the mid-1970s). The album also marks Hawes’ only existing recordings with Scott LaFaro. Three trio performances recorded during that date but not included on the original LP have also been added. No previous CD edition of For Real contained these tracks, which complete the session. Also this release is rounded out with two rare live trio recordings by the pianist, taped in Rome in the company of Jimmy Woode and Kenny Clarke.
Los Angeles, March 17, 1958.
