Mellow Tone features Hawkins with some wonderful compatriots like Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis (who was a major Hawkins disciple), Kenny Burrell/g, the rarely heard Hilton Jefferson/as, Major Holley/b, George Duvivier/Ron Carter/b and Jimmy Hamilton/cl. These guys show that you don’t need a music degree to put out good music; each guy had his own distinct sound, and made it work, on tunes like the gorgeous “Then I’ll Be Tired Of You” and “Until The Real Thing Comes Along.” These guys make each nuance of a note count, and count for a lot.

with Tommy Flanagan, Wendell Marshall, Osie Johnson, Red Garland, Doug Watkins, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Ron Carter, Kenny Burrell, Ray Bryant, Charlie Shavers, Tiny Grimes, George Duvivier, and others
