5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites 2 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
From the beautiful Close Your Eyes to the swinging Get Happy this is one of my favourite CDs. Bought on spec from the label around 10 years ago I think the fidelity of this HDCD is outstanding for the age of the production. I wouldn't sell or swap this for any other disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two overlooked Milt Jackson albums from 1958. 5 April 2014
By Jazzrook TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This excellent reissue combines two consecutive Milt Jackson albums originally recorded for ATLANTIC & BLUE NOTE.
Tracks 1-6('Bean Bags') were recorded in New York on September 12, 1958 with Jackson(vibes); Coleman Hawkins(tenor saxophone); Kenny Burrell(guitar); Tommy Flanagan(piano); Eddie Jones(bass) & Connie Kay(drums).
Tracks 7-12('Bags' Opus') were recorded in New York on December 28 & 29, 1958 with Jackson(vibes); Benny Golson(tenor saxophone); Art Farmer(trumpet); Tommy Flanagan(piano); Paul Chambers(bass) & Connie Kay(drums).
Highlights include Hawkins' 'Stuffy' & the standard 'Get Happy' from 'Bean Bags' and Golson's 'Whisper Not' & 'I Remember Clifford' plus John Lewis's 'Afternoon In Paris' from 'Bags' Opus'.
This enjoyable CD contains 70 minutes of swinging mainstream/modern jazz which deserves to be better known.

5.0 out of 5 stars Milt Jackson and the Jazz Giants 19 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The title is quite correct, Coleman Hawkins at his best, Art Farmer, Benny Golson and rhythm section to dream of. I don't know of a Milt Jackson Record that doesn't swing and this one does....mightily!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever Title.... 4 Oct 2002
By Robert J. Ament - Published on
Format:Audio CD
with Bean being Hawkins' nickname as Bags was for Jackson. More importantly that this '59 effort, now on cd, features two legends on their respective instruments and with a supporting cast who may be arguably legends as well.
Fittingly, there are two ballads in the set as both Jackson and Hawkins had romanticism in their souls (who will ever forget Hawkins' recording of "Body and Soul"?). They both romp through the Hawkins' original, "Stuffy", and the standard "Get Happy". The set concludes with two Jackson original blues, one slow with the other a medium tempo, on which everyone gets their chops.
A very listenable and enjoyable set!

5.0 out of 5 stars They Did It Again! 23 Jan 2000
By oliver taylor - Published on
Format:Audio CD
What a listening experience.Bags without a doubt is the "Absolute Truth" on the vibes,and Coleman is right there with him.My favorite jazz album of all time is "Opus De Jazz" by Milt,but this one is righ up there with it.The eloquence of their playing is just great.Especially loved the selection Close Your Eyes.It showcased both their talents to the utmost.Just great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawk & Milt: Dynamic duo 8 May 2007
By Bomojaz - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Away from the MJQ, Milt Jackson often recorded in what could easily be tagged all-star groups, whether teaming up with John Coltrane, Ray Charles, or Wes Montgomery. Here his side kick is the father of the tenor sax himself, Coleman Hawkins, and the results are magnificent. Hawk is in great form, and the performance of everyone on his own STUFFY is terrific. CLOSE YOUR EYES gets a gorgeous ballad treatment, while GET HAPPY is a scorcher. The final two tracks are 12-bar blues, one slow, the other medium-up, and cap off a marvelous outing by two jazz giants - and a great rhythm section headed by pianist Tommy Flanagan and including guitarist Kenny Burrel. Definitely worth looking into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtakingly beautiful 20 Aug 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on
Usually when there are sound samples on a product page I simply refer to those and let folks make up their own minds. In the case of this album the sound samples - while adequate - do not begin to convey the beauty of any of the tracks on this all-too-short album.

There is something about the way that Milt and Coleman connect that makes this album pure magic. Prior to this I had always thought the best paring between Milt and a tenor saxophonist was he and Lucky Thompson. This album has caused me to rethink that.

Of course it's not just Milt and Coleman who make this album special. It's also the solid rhythm section led by Tommy Flanagan on piano with Kenny Burrell's incredible guitar work, Eddie Jones on bass and Connie Kay on drums. In fact for this album the only other drummer I can think of who would have played with the same sensitivity is Ed Thigpen. Overall, the rhythm section - in my opinion - is as responsible for the musical magic as Milt and Coleman.

This album was recorded in NYC for Atlantic on September 12, 1958. There were actually eight tracks recorded for this album, but two never made it onto the platter for come reason: Where Or When which remains unissued, and Prisoner Of Love for no reason that I can unearth. Regardless, the album as it stands is perfect to my ears.
