Elmo Hope

I was looking at some bluenote covers online, and I liked this picture. I'd never heard of Elmo Hope, but I like his name a lot, and I listened a bit on spotify and like his music, too. (Oh, I just said "like" a lot, but I'm too lazy to go back and find a different word). I'm sure there are other spillers who know more about him?

I've never heard him, the Penguin guide rates that quintet album highly. Will definitely listen, I agree the covers are very tempting.

Never heard of him either but I do have quite a bit of Frank Foster, I'll check him out.

Odd thing is I know everybody in his band but not him, nice group sound, nice piano lead.
