When Coleman Hawkins made this record in 1959, he had been a professional musician for 38 years. For 34 of those years, dating from his blossoming as a soloist in the Fletcher Henderson band, he was one of the three or four most profoundly influential jazz artists. As music changed, Hawkins was always ahead of the curve. He had long since absorbed, indeed had influenced and encouraged bebop, so Hawk was right at home with Red Garland's trio. Long before he joined Miles Davis in 1955, Garland was regularly employed by Hawkins, and this date constituted a happy reunion. Abetted by Garland, the veteran drummer Specs Wright and the swinging young Detroit bassist Doug Watkins, Hawkins did some of the best tenor playing of his final decade.
