SUMMARY Raise Up Off Me A Portrait of Hampton Hawes 107 Hampton Hawes 1928–1977 was one of jazz's greatest pianists Among his peers from California the self taught Hawes was second only to Oscar Peterson At the time of his celebration as New Star of the Year by downbeat magazine 1956 Hawes w. This is absolutely one of the best autobiographies I ve ever read It s considered one of the best music autobiographies of any genre ever written by many critics Hampton Hawes was one of the best jazz pianists ever Ever The book was favorably received on publication by critics who recognized it by its vivacity humor and authenticity It s extremely raw with much of the book related to Hawes extensive bouts with drugs than his incredible piano history There s a long period in this book where he s enlisted in the army and most of this period he s battling a serious heroin problem Serving in the US Army in Japan in the early 50 s didn t stop his drug use in fact in many ways he only increased his drug use overseasWhat was so fascinating about this book and what I so enjoy about the great jazz biographies memoirs and autobiographies are the incredible first hand accounts of some of the all time great artists in jazz Billie and Bird Miles Monk Rollins Oscar Peterson Dizzy and so onThis book is on par with the Miles Davis incredible autobiography Miles The Autobiography written with uincy Troupe in that it truly is raw with the language drug use sex etc However unlike that biography this one details of the drug life Hampton Hawes experienced Unfortunately that is one of the faults of this biography There s about a 75 25 drug to music ratio in this book and I would have much preferred maybe a 50 50 split Because drugs played a big part of his life maybe if he could have added another 50 to 75 pages and talked about his music it would ve been even better Another downside to this book is the use of unnecessary footnotes often one word footnotes to explain certain things in the book Example phrase but it was only the cops jamming brothers Harassing brothers Ok that s rather self explanatory for anyone Those are small uibbles here and take away from nothingHampton Hawes was busted in a sting on 111358 his 30th birthday with 16 cents in his pocket He got 10 years and served 5 only because he reuested and received an executive clemency from President Kennedy 81663 Ironically Kennedy was assassinated three months later This is a large part of the Hampton Hawes story or what he is remembered for Hampton Hawes was a natural and gifted pianist He had so many opportunities thrown his way because of his immense talents but drugs just hijacked them He followed the path of Yardbird Parker in that drugs were uppermost in his mind and not recording or the next gig It s so unfortunate that this book is not well known and importantly that Hampton Hawes is not well known He is one of the greatest jazz pianist ever and a rather colorful one Highly and thoroughly recommended
