A fantastic session from 1961. The music is relaxed, bluesy swing and Hawkins and Russell are both in fine form. According to the liner notes from the original LP, most of the songs were done in one take. And it shows in the music. These men were all in tune with each other and collectively had a few years experience under their belts! Probably not one of Hawkins better known albums but one any Hawkins fan will want in their collection.
