The 115th anniversary of the birth of Coleman Hawkins. The saxophone master was born on 21 November 1904.

yes!! One of my favorite players all time, period. The Hawk is still flying high! On the cusp of Scorpio/Sagittarius...very interesting...

Hmm, yesterday my dad became 94 (still alive), today the Hawk's 115th anniversary, not a bad week for me! :)

One of my favourite albums of Hawk is with Roy Eldridge, recorded live at Bayou Club, Washington D.C.. In that time he toured with Roy though the USA and they performed with local rhythm sections. This recording has Coleman Hawkins (ts), Roy Eldridge (tp), Don Wilson (p), Bob Decker (b) and Buddy Dean (d).

Here is a link to the full recording:

Really energetic playing of both Masters and the rhythm section lays down a solid and swinging background.
