O’s Notes: This set of tunes is an excellent sampling from a premier jazz sax player, Coleman Hawkins. Listen to “I’ll Get By” with some great work on piano from Tommy Flanagan. Kenny Burrell (g), Ron Carter (b), and Red Garland (p) also lend support on these eleven songs recorded between 1958 and 1962. You will get a feel for the pure, mellow swing and warm, throaty voice of Hawkins’ sax.
