"Recorded in NYC, and featuring Coleman Hawkins (tenor), Thad Jones (trumpet), George Duvivier (bass), Eddie Costa (piano and vibes), and Osie Johnson (drums), this brilliant LP is proof that in 1960 Hawkins was in prime form, and still making significant contributions to the genre 35 years after making his first record! Not only was Hawkins (born in 1904) a pioneer of the tenor saxophone, transforming the instrument from an obscure novelty instrument into one of the primary instruments of jazz, he also accompanied and propelled the saxophone throughout its many stylistic changes, as jazz itself developed and changed in the ensuing decades." Comes on 180 gram vinyl.
