By Dr.D.Treharne VINE VOICE on 2 Aug 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the single album Japanese re-master of the "Bean Bags" album and as such has just the six tunes and a running time of just over 35 minutes. Unlike some of the other Japanese re-issues this has the original sleeve notes by Nat Hentoff on the back, which is just as well because the rest of the notes are in Japanese. The programming is the usual mixture of "standards" with Coleman Hawkins contributing "Stuffy" and Jackson "Sandra's Blues" and "Indian Blues". What matters most is not the paucity of running time, but some sublime Coleman Hawkins playing, and Milt Jackson sounding on top of his creative game. It's also easy to overlook the contribution made by Kenny Burrell to the album, helping to fill out the sounds and add some accomplished embellishments- together with Tommy Flanagan. All in all, well worth the money even if Hentoff's florid sleeve-notes now read as being overblown and prolix. Utterly enjoyable.

By Jazzrook TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 April 2014

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.

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!

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.
