Description:Piano Improvisation is an interesting collection of live recordings Hampton Hawes made in 1967 and 1968 while he was traveling Europe. Tracks 1 and 4 were recorded in Paris in late 1967 with two expat Americans; Jimmy Woode on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums. Tracks 2 and 5 were recorded in Rome in 1968 with an European rhythm section; Gilbert Rovere on bass and Daniel Humair on drums. Track 3 is a very rare two-piano performance with French pianist of great caliber Martial Solal.

It is interesting to compare two versions of "Autumn Leaves" recorded on different dates with different rhythm sections. Either way, we are fortunate to be able to hear Hawes' inspired solos and interplay with great musicians.

Newly remastered in Japan based on the original mono master tapes, this reissue CD is an important document of Hampton Hawes in 1967 and 1968. A must-have item for his fans!

Recorded live in Paris, 1967 and Rome, 1968. This Japanese reissue CD released by Studio Songs in May 2014. Mono.
