O’s Notes: Hawkins was widely recognized as the father of the tenor sax. He made a large contribution over five decades in the jazz world. He played in both large and small ensembles. Coleman plays romantic tunes and burners equally well all the while delighting his audience. The accompanying DVD further embellishes the experience chronicling his career.
