Elmo Hope Trio – Hot Sauce (1953)

Hot Sauce is recorded in New York, May – June 1953. The track is from Elmo Hope Trio & Quintet, released in 1983.

St. Elmo Sylvester Hope (June 27, 1923 – May 19, 1967) was an American jazz pianist, performing chiefly in the bop and hard bop genres. His highly individual piano-playing and, especially, his compositions have led a few enthusiasts and critics such as David Rosenthal to place him alongside his contemporaries Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk (one could also compare him to Herbie Nichols), but he remains less recognized than his colleagues.
