Sunday Sleep In ~ “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams” ~ Hampton Hawes

 

A very young Scott LaFaro with Hampton Hawes on this album, sadly he would die just three years later in 61′ at the age of 25 from a car accident. Hawes would be arrested as the feds were going after jazz musicians with drug problems hoping they would give up the names of their dealers in LA. Hawes wouldn’t give up anybody and they threw a unheard of 10 yr. sentence at him.

Thankfully President John F. Kennedy would end up pardoning him in 63′ and the music then continued until his sudden death in 77′ at the age of 48.
