5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable outing, 2 Aug 2014

This review is from: Bean Bags (Audio CD)
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.

This review is from: Bean Bags + Bags' Opus (Audio CD)
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites, 2 Jun 2008
This review is from: Bean Bags (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.
