It's time for a deep dive, listeners, and the subject this round is underappreciated West Coast keyboard wizard Hampton Hawes. Hawes did most of his best known recordings for Contemporary Jazz, and we'll look at a couple of releases on that storied (but also underappreciated) label, as well as a collaboration with Charles Mingus and a sample of Hampton's seventies output, when the sideburns got longer and the keyboards got plugged in. Hampton Hawes: BLUES FOR WALLS ; FOR REAL; FOUR! Charles Mingus: MINGUS THREE. Pat takes a ride with Casey Jones in pop matters.
