Review: If you like your bop cooked up with lots of grease this is the session for you. Hamp's playing is superbad throughout. Check out the title track, "For Real!". This is one of the great piano solos of all time. He sounds like a preacher calling down from his pulpit, sending out the word to his flock. The solo is long but never once loses the thread of the story it has to tell- a perfect balance of the sacred and the profane. Hamp's comping alone is worth the price of admission - a combination of sanctified feeling and street smarts that propels the groove like a smooth running engine.
The rythmn section smokes with the great, underrated Frank Butler on drums and bass messiah Scott LaFaro stirring things up. If you never heard LaFaro play straight ahead check this cd out immediately. He swings as hard as Chambers or Heath and while accompanying beautifully still manages to project his larger than life personality without dominating. What an incredible loss! whether it be with Ornette or Bill Evans or a down home session like this, Scott LaFaro could deliver the goods.
This is a recording that stands the test of time. "For Real!" was recorded in 1959 and Hamp was at that point probably to "Hip" for his own good. With an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other he couldn't keep things going forever. He was arrested shortly after the session and spent the next five years in federal prison. Oh well that's another horror story. At least for this recording you can tell that Hamp, like the other players, was definitely feeling good.
