THE AMAZING PIANO OF HAMPTON HAWES PLUS JIM HALL’S GUITAR MAGIC
IN AN EXTENDED UNINTERRUPTED SESSION!!

THE COMPLETE THREE ORIGINAL VOLUMES ON A 2CD SET!!!

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 studios, 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. A follower of Charlie Parker in both his music and lifestyle, Hawes waxed this recording nearly two years before being imprisoned for heroin possession. Although he was supposed to serve a five-year jail term, his sentence was revoked by President John F. Kennedy. Hawes resumed his career after his release, playing and recording until suffering a fatal strokE in Los Angeles, on May 22, 1977. This 2 CD collection compiles the complete All Night Session –which originally appeared on 3 LPs.
