Hampton Hawes Trio - High In The Sky (1970)

A little - known gem in Haws' discography, this trio recording finds him in the company of old acquaintances Leroy Vinegar and Donald Bailey in an all - original program plus the ever present The Look Of Love (it's 1970 remember?). Superb playing throughout.

Track Listing:

High In The Sky
Spanish Girl
The Look Of Love
Evening Trane
Muffin Man
