HI.. I will check out the Hampton, thank you for suggesting. I have many Hampton Hawes albums myseelf... starting with his great work on the L.A. Based Contemporary label, then those great albums: The Challenge (RCA) and "The Seance"..Some time ago, some Melomaniaco posted the great 3 cd set of "The All Night Sessions" as well.
I sure appreciate your quality posts, that's for sure.

And a big hello to scoredaddy- thanks for the 'gesture', by the way.
