Elmo Hope

Overshadowed throughout his life by his friends Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, Elmo Hope was a talented pianist and composer whose life was cut short by drugs. His first important gig was with Joe Morris' R&B band (1948-1951). He recorded in New York as a leader (starting in 1953) and with Sonny Rollins, Lou Donaldson, Clifford Brown, and Jackie McLean, but the loss of his cabaret card (due to his drug use) made it very difficult for him to make a living in New York. After touring with Chet Baker in 1957, Hope relocated to Los Angeles. He performed with Lionel Hampton in 1959, recorded with Harold Land and Curtis Counce, and returned to New York in 1961. A short prison sentence did little to help his drug problem and, although he sounds fine on his trio performances of 1966, he died a little over a year later. Elmo Hope's sessions as a leader were cut for Blue Note, Prestige, Pacific Jazz, Hi Fi Jazz, Riverside, Celebrity, Beacon, and Audio Fidelity; his last albums were initially released on Inner City. Hope was also a fine composer, although none of his songs became standards. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

THE PIANIST AND COMPOSER, ELMO HOPE (1923-1967) WAS ONE OF THE MOST GIFTED AND ORIGINAL ARTISTS OF THE HARD BOP PERIOD. HOPE WAS A CLOSE CHILDHOOD FRIEND OF BUD POWELL AND THELONIOUS MONK AND FREQUENTLY INTERACTED WITH THESE JAZZ GIANTS IN THE 1940S WHEN THE BEBOP INNOVATIONS WERE BEING FORMULATED AND REFINED.
The real shame is that puritanical America treats drug use as a criminal matter.
It's really a shame not more was known about brain chemical imbalances back then; they can really contribute to drug dependency - to play the way he did reflects a gentle, sorrowful soul. "Sweet and Lovely" is just that...
