This review is from: Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins (Audio CD)
One of the best recordings of late Hawkins joining a band comprising of Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Aaron Bell and Sam Woodyard with the piano player in a swinging mood. Rarely heard tunes, or tunes written for the occasion, presents the small band in all it's glory - Hawk playing as if he always has been playing that kind of music, fx. a gorgeous rendition of Mood Indigo and the special Self portrait of the Bean.
I can not recommend it enough to all lovers of small band swing!!
