Coleman Hawkins & His Orchestra 1940

LP (Item 666738) Alamac, 1940 — Condition: Sealed

...

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Coleman Hawkins All Stars
Prestige/Swingville, Early 60s. Very Good-
Not the sprawling session you'd usually get from a record with "all stars" in the title, and instead a tight small group record that features Coleman Hawkins at his later best!

Hawk Flies High
Riverside, 1957. Very Good+
A key album in the reintroduction of Coleman Hawkins in the late 50s – recorded in a style that still bears a lot of traces of earlier years, but at a time when Hawk was being claimed as a key influence by a variety of younger modernists!

Wrapped Tight
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great later Coleman Hawkins on Impulse – just the sort of deep-toned, soulfully-blown record that makes all his sessions for the label so great! Hawk's very firmly in the lead on that classic tenor of his – but the rest of the lineup keeps things swinging too – with Snooky Young ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/Swingville, 1959. Very Good
Exellent late work by Hawk – way darker than you'd guess! The set features Coleman Hawkins as the main soloist with the Red Garland trio, and it's got a very open-ended session that has him blowing tones and phrases that you'd never hear on his earlier albums – moody, angular, and ...

Savoy, 1954. Near Mint-
Classic Coleman Hawkins work for Savoy – featuring Hawk blowing in a number of small group settings. We're not really sure where he "returns" from on this one – but the playing is great, and tracks include "Flight Eleven", "Should I", "Modern ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins

Desafinado
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+
The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later ...

Bill Barron

Jazz Caper
Muse, 1982. Very Good
One of the great later sides that Bill Barron cut for Muse. The amazing tenor player's a big more restrained than in his 60's work with Ted Curson, but his sound is excellent, and he leads the group with all the finesse of a master. Kenny Barron, Jimmy Owens, Buster Williams, and Ed Blackwell ... LP, Vinyl record album
