Coleman Hawkings - The Complete Albums Collection 1960-1962
An enormous presence in jazz across five decades, Coleman Hawkins provided huge influence for generations of jazz saxophonists who were inspired to pick up their instrument of choice following exposure to Hawkins work. Having begun his career participating in late night Harlem jam sessions, Hawkins quickly rose to fame following his recording of Body And Soul on 11th October 1939 - a tune considered by many to be among the finest jazz numbers ever. From then on, his relentless recording and touring schedules along with the pure quality of his work made him a central figure on the international jazz stage, a reputation he maintained for the rest of his life and beyond.
This four disc set commemorates the last great period of Coleman Hawkins career. Containing over four hours of music from eight complete albums, originally released across the period 1960 to 1962, this collection is a fitting testament to a hugely accomplished musician who was arguably the greatest tenor saxophonist of the entire jazz spectrum.
