AMG Review: This CD reissues one of pianist Hampton Hawes' more obscure sessions. Trying during the era to widen his repertoire beyond the usual bop standards, Hawes performs eight songs originally written for movies. Some of the tunes, such as "My Man" and "Old Devil Moon," are of a higher quality than others ("People" and "As Long As She Needs Me"). For the set, Hawes was joined not only by bassist Bob West and drummer Larry Bunker, but also a string section arranged by Billy Byers. Formerly available as half of the LP The Two Sides of Hampton Hawes, this interesting but very brief (under 29 minutes) and far from essential outing has been reissued on CD by Fresh Sound.
