Album Review

This unusual set has five selections from a date featuring the great tenor Coleman Hawkins, pianist Hank Jones, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Shelly Manne. Both "Take the 'A' Train" and "Cherokee" find the group at times playing two tempos at once (Manne sticks to double-time throughout "Cherokee"), and showing that they'd heard some of the avant-garde players. The most swinging piece, "Avalon," was previously available only on a sampler, while "Me and Some Drums" features Hawkins and Manne in a very effective duet; the veteran tenor makes his only recorded appearance on piano during the first half. This date is rounded off by a pair of trio features for Eddie Costa (with Duvivier and Manne); one song apiece on vibes and drums. A very interesting set with more than its share of surprises.

Customer Reviews

A Superb All-Star Jazz Duo, Trio, and Quartet Set !!

Master jazz drummer Shelly Manne leads a great group which includes the legendary and highly influential tenor sax man Hall of Famer Coleman Hawkins, who is in sensational form, master pianist Hank Jones and in-demand bassist George Duvivier. Special guest is the talented, starcrossed vibist Eddie Costa on two songs. "Take The A-Train" in unusual, swinging, and superb. "Slowly" is a great Hawkin's ballad performance. Check out Costa on "Sicks of Us". Great stuff.
