"Coleman Hawkins is a musician who has constantly refreshed himself by both listening to younger musicians and using them in his own groups. That this tenor player, who joined Fletcher- Henderson's orchestra almost 110 years ago, and who virtually created ajazz vocabulary for his instrument, should now regularly work alongside the young modernists is both something of a paradox and something of a tribute to H awkins's resilience and his capacity to adapt to the winds of change." - Gramophone

Absolutely stunning sound! This LP has all the punch, clarity, detail and dynamics you only associate with a Direct-to-Disk recording. The sound is 'alive' with the Musicians performing 5 feet in front of you.
Surface noise is audible as 'crackles' between tracks and on low-volume passages only.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
