Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an excellent 16-track compilation of live and studio small-group sessions recorded by the great tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins(1904-1969).
The music, including 5 Hawkins' originals & 11 standards, is drawn from the VERVE & KEYNOTE labels between 1944 & 1962 and the collective personnel is as follows:
Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster(tenor sax); Cecil Payne(baritone sax); Roy Eldridge(trumpet); Herb Ellis, John Collins(guitar); Hank Jones, Al Haig, John Lewis, Tommy Flanagan, Oscar Peterson, Teddy Wilson(piano); Ray Brown, Nelson Boyd, Percy Heath, Major Holley, George Duvivier, John Kirby, Billy Taylor, Israel Crosby(bass); Buddy Rich, Shadow Wilson, Connie Kay, Eddie Locke, Alvin Stoller, Mickey Sheen, Big Sid Catlett, Cozy Cole(drums).
Well over 60 minutes of varied and swinging mainstream jazz and an ideal introduction to Coleman Hawkins' saxophone playing. It's especially valuable for his neglected masterpiece, the unaccompanied solo 'Picasso' from 1948.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carelessly assembled overview 6 Oct. 2004
By Johnny Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
On the positive side:
Over an hour of varied material from the 40's thru the 60's. Highlights includes: another rendition of the famed "Body and Soul" solo, a gorgeious duet (duel?) with Ben Webster, an awesome unaccompanied solo "Picasso", a heart-rending "Night and Day", and a total of 62 minutes of the mother of all (tenor) sax players. There is some great piano work from Hank Jones, Tommy Flannagan and Oscar Peterson.

On the negative side:
There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the order of the tracks. There is a jarring inconsistency in sound quality; to be expected on older vs newer tracks, but there seems to be some big differences in sound on cuts from the same date! And can't we use digital remastering to reduce or eliminate the jarring applause on the live tracks? Contrast this with the Decca "Coleman Hawkins in the 50's", which mixes arguably weaker commercial, bop, and swing jazz in a sequence that plays well and with a consistency of sound quality that makes for a better listening experience when playing the CD straight through.

UPDATE 4/8/11:

This CD kept popping up in random play on my CD carousel changer, and I kept diggin' the tracks to where I've come to truly love this. Previous carping about sound quality and crowd noise was probably shaded by listening to it on headphones a lot, and failure to let the wonderfulness of the playing "sink in" before posting the review. Verve apparently owns the Keystone and Mercury masters, giving us 5 great, rare Teddy Wilson band sides from the 40's. Some of the most exciting Hawk I've heard (I now own dozens of his CDs). Sound quality IS actually quite good, if less than state-of-the-art.
2.0 out of 5 stars Only One Great Song 21 Jun. 2015
By Michael Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Beware. This album contains only one great song: Cocktails for Two. The rest of the songs, in my opinion, are either mediocre or worse. Normally, I trust the Verve label, and I enjoy Coleman Hawkins, but this time, I was thoroughly disappointed. Of course, this is a matter of taste. Perhaps you will feel differently. The upside is that I now have a copy of Cocktails for Two, the version with Ben Webster. And it is a masterpiece.
