Coleman Hawkins - At Ease With Coleman Hawkins (Reissue) [LP]
Recorded in 1960 by the inimitable Rudy Van Gelder at his studio in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, At Ease With Coleman Hawkins finds tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins (nicknamed Hawk) effortlessly gliding through eight outstanding tracks in his trademark breathy tone. Miles Davis once said, ''When I heard Hawk, I learned to play ballads,'' and At Ease... shows why - at every turn - Hawkins blows with cool, understated beauty. Joined for this date by Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums, Hawk turns in a laid-back, dream-like suite of ballads worthy of a spot in every sophisticated jazz fan's LP collection.
