Elmo Hope Informal Jazz on Hybrid Mono SACD

Analogue Productions' Prestige Mono Series

Mastered from Original Mono Tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio 

Pianist/composer Elmo Hope is joined on 1956's Informal Jazz by a literal dream team of jazz giants including John Coltrane (tenor sax), Hank Mobley (tenor sax), Donald Byrd (trumpet), Paul Chambers (bass) and Philly Joe Jones (drums). The 4-song hard bop set is anchored by the two Hope originals "Weeja" and "On It" which are featured here alongside the Jimmy Van Heusen penned "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" and the popular jazz standard "Avalon." With a line-up like this, the title may be the only thing informal about it!
