Great album
G. Sawaged | Canada | 06/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sonny Rollins has selected his favourite Coleman Hawkins 'Verve' performances for this album. This is a great cd to start with for someone not too familiar with Hawkins' work. Here we can hear him play solo on "Picasso", as well as in small groups and larger bands. The years covered are 1944 through to 1957. On a couple of tracks there is some surface hiss...but it does state in the booklet that some recordings were transferred from disc sources so surface noise is audible. It's a shame as I'm sure remastering would have solved that. But anyway, this is an excellent place to start a collection of Coleman Hawkins. Sonny also writes his thoughts on Hawkins and his music which is interesting."
