4 1/2 star rating at AMG (high for a jazz album)
All Night Session! Vol. 2 is the second album by pianist Hampton Hawes from a session recorded the night of November 12th and morning of November 13th, 1956 at Contemporary's Studios in Los Angeles and released on the Contemporary label.
The Allmusic review states "In 1958 Hawes was quoted as saying "It's hard to put into words how good it feels to play jazz when it's really swinging...I've reached a point where the music fills you up so much emotionally that you feel like shouting hallelujah -- like people do in church when they're converted to God. That's the way I was feeling the night we recorded All Night Session!" ".
