CD Reviews

Compilation of very different recordings here

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Prestige issued its 'Historical Series' in the late 1960s, and this CD is a compilation of tracks from them. Strangely titled "Bean and the Boys", since that was the name of one of the LPs - one which featured the Hawk in bop, with Monk and Fats Navarro, the first four tracks on this CD are anything but bop; they come from the "Walter 'Foots' Thomas All-Stars" recording, and they are great, but its Swing. Hey, if you don't mind jarring segues from great Swing to a bop quartet (heck, Hawk did it) you should like this reissue. Me, I like my reissues a little more coherent. If you like the 'samples' "Out To Lunch" and "Look Out, Jack" - check for a reissue of the Walter "Foots" Thomas All-Stars, one of the best recordings ever."
