    Coleman Hawkins was the man who put the tenor saxophone on the jazz map. Though the great Bud Freeman had preceded him, Hawkins' big, bold, and affectionately rough tone set the standard for jazz saxophone styles for decades to come, influencing players from the swing era to bebop and beyond. This collection is a superb, wide-ranging summary of Hawkins' career.
    This set kicks off with "The Stampede" from 1926, a Fletcher Henderson tune that heralded the swing sound that would soon take the jazz world by storm. "Body and Soul" was and is Hawkins' best-known (and loved) tune. In a sublime example of jazz ballad playing, here Hawkins adapts a well-known pop tune and makes it his own. Hawkins was also one of the first swing era giants to take to bebop, playing and recording with bop icons Dizzy Gillespie ("Woody 'N' You"), Thelonious Monk ("Ruby, My Dear"), and Sonny Rollins ("Just Friends"). Later collaborations with Duke Ellington ("Self Portrait"), and Max Roach ("Driva Man"), prove that Hawkins still had the right stuff in the 1960s.
