In astronomy, Sirius is the star that appears brightest in the heavens. The name was appropriate for Coleman Hawkins's last studio recording. He was the first and, for decades, the brightest star of the tenor saxophone. Even though in his final years Hawkins was wracked by illness and the effects of too much drinking, he maintained his magisterial tone almost until his death in the spring of 1969. Here, his sound is intact and he applies to a collection of great standards the harmonic ingenuity that showed the way to musicians around the world. Hawk is accompanied by a rhythm section that includes two of his longtime associates, pianist Barry Harris and drummer Eddie Locke. They are joined by bassist Bob Cranshaw. Sirius recalls the strength, dignity, and nobility of a great man.

with Barry Harris, Bob Cranshaw, Eddie Locke
