Hampton Hawes - Playin' In the Yard

This live LP mostly features Hampton Haweson electric piano, performing at the 1973 Montreux Jazz Festival in a trio with electric bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Kenny Clarke. Hawes interprets three of his originals, Sonny Rollins' catchy "Playin' In the Yard," and "Stella By Starlight." Although well-played, little memorable occurs, and Hawes never did sound as distinctive on keyboards as he did on acoustic piano.

Tracks:
1. Playin' In the Yard
2. Double Trouble
3. Pink Peaches
4. De De
5. Stella by Starlight
