4.0 out of 5 stars Hampton Hawes in quartet and trio format. 27 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
For my money this album does not measure up to the All Night Session despite being a very good album. Perhaps because I prefer to listen to Hawes in trio (of which there are a handful on this album). This album has six tracks that include the tenor player Harold Land who became well known because of his association with Clifford Brown and Max Roach. Land is a perfectly competent musician who could be described as a "bebop" player. The consequence is that the six tracks are rather bebop influenced despite being recorded in 1958. This is not meant to be an adverse criticism, more a comment. Included to complete the quartet are Frank Butler ( a drummer new to me) and the ill-fated Scott LaFaro on bass. Apart from noting his untimely death, Scott came to my attention though his magnificent sessions with pianist Bill Evans at the Village Vanguard. LaFaro was a master bass player! and he demonstrates his talent on nine of the tracks on the compilation album.
The first nine tracks (six quartet, three trio) were all recorded in 1958, but only the quartet tracks appear on the original "For Real" release.
There are two more tracks on the CD, trio recordings from 1968 which feature Hawes, Jimmy Woode and ex MJQ drummer Kenny Clarke.
There is plenty of opportunity to listen to the great piano playing of Hampton Hawes since on all tracks he gets plenty of solo time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hampton Hawes in his best years. 5 May 2013
By Bruce Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hampton Hawes was one of those beautiful beings who could play jazz and make it sound easy. But the truth is that he had ears which could hear 'LIFE' as if it was on a different plain. These sessions give us insights about him which all jazz piano lovers should own and though he has been neglected these cds will not disappoint. And if you can find " As Long As There's Music" which is a duo with Charlie Haden just buy it. (It may be under Haden's name) but it is a rare Cd with some wonderful jazz.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decieving 29 April 2013
By John M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Harold Land does not play on any of the 5 bonus trio tracks - 3 are from the same session and 2 were recorded in Rome. If you already have the OJC 6 track CD you might as well get a full Hampton Hawes trio session rather than re-purchase this one.
