Here is Coleman Hawkins (1904-1969) father of the jazz tenor saxophone and one of the 20th century's greatest musicians, mastering distinctly different--but ineluctably related--idioms. The 19 titles herein, spanning the years 1944 to 1959, take us from swinging pre-bop (the four tunes led by former Cab Calloway saxophonist-arranger Walter "Foots" Thomas) to early bebop (Hawkins was among the very first of the old guard to champion such young lions as Milt Jackson, J.J. Johnson, Hank Jones, Fats Navarro, Max Roach, and, especially, Thelonious Monk--all of whom contribute to this set's success) and the post-bop blues (the stellar octet led by ex-Earl Hines and Billy Eckstine arranger-composer-trombonist Jerry Valentine). Whatever the setting, Hawkins's invoked, involving solos never fail to shine.
