    Hi,

    Can someone tell me how to properly pronounce Hampton's last name?

    is it Haze or Haaz or ???

    thanks!
     
  2. I bet Hampton Hawes could tell you.
    Myself, I'd guess *hawz* like *hogs* w/o the g.
    How in the world would you get *Hays* from that?

    It's pause for the cause with Hampton Hawes...

    that would be difficult...he died in 1977.

    I guess I'm guilty of asking a dumb question? :confused:
