Tonight his trio focuses on his personal passion for the writings and stylings of the lesser known piano genius Elmo Hope. Overshadowed throughout his life by his friends Budd Powell and Thelonius Monk, Hope was a talented pianist and composer whose life was cut short by drugs. He recorded in New York as a leader (starting in 1953) and with Sonny Rollins, Lou Donaldson, Clifford Brown, and Jackie McClean 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. He died a little over a year later leaving his legacy as a leader on Blue Note, Prestige, Pacific Jazz, Hi Fi Jazz, Riverside, Celebrity, Beacon, and Audio Fidelity. Hope was also a fine composer and some of his finer work will be aired by the trio.
