This recording was my first exposure to Hampton Hawes, who, in my opinion, was one of the most swinging pianists of all time. Here Hawes plays in an uncharacteristically free-groove way, but he's still steeped in the blues. As so often, it's about interplay. Charlie and Hampton reach a special place on this cut.
