White Hot Stamper

Coleman Hawkins and Clark Terry
Back In Bean’s Bag

  (Item #: hawkibacki_1703) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • The best copy we have ever heard - Triple Plus (A+++) on side two and nearly as good on side one (A++ to A+++)
  • This is the kind of classic All Tube, Live in the Studio Columbia Sound from 1962 that makes a mockery of most jazz recordings
  • What a swingin' group - there is simply not a false step or false note to be found anywhere on either side of this wonderful recording
  • Hawkins teamed up with the personable trumpeter Clark Terry for this upbeat set of of solid swing. Terry in particular is in exuberant form on "Feedin' the Bean" and a delightful version of "Don't Worry About Me," but Hawkins's playing (particularly on the trumpeter's ballad "Michelle") is also in fine form."

Our Price: $249.99

  • This killer pressing earned Triple Plus (A+++) grades or something close to them (A++ to A+++) on both sides
  • A wonderful Saxophone Ballad session from 1959 that has to be seen as yet another triumph for Rudy Van Gelder
  • Miles Davis once said: "When I heard Hawk, I learned to play ballads." He clearly learned that lesson well
  • "With such superior songs as "Through for the Night," "I Never Knew" and "La Rosita," in addition to long jams, plenty of fireworks occur during this frequently exciting session."

Benny Carter - Further Definitions

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: cartefurth_2009) 


This is an original Minty looking Impulse LP. What I played of this album sounded nice and smooth. There may be livelier copies out there -- I just don’t come acoss enough clean ones to know what the potential for this album is. I prefer smooth to aggressive, that’s for sure. Top players on this album include Coleman Hawkins, Philly Jo Jones, Phil Woods, Charles Rouse and others.

Coleman Hawkins - At Ease With Coleman Hawkins

Our OJC Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: hawkiateas_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This 1960 Saxophone Ballad session has to be seen as yet another recording triumph for Rudy Van Gelder. The best pressings of these OJC reissues from 1989 sound like the vintage jazz albums they emulate, and sometimes they even beat the originals at their own Tubey Magical game. They can be every bit as rich, sweet and spacious as their earlier-pressed brethren in our experience.

In the case of At Ease with Coleman Hawkins, we simply have never seen an original copy clean enough to buy, so we have no reference for what an original would sound like.

This 1960 Saxophone Ballad session from 1960 has to be seen as yet another recording triumph for Rudy Van Gelder

The best pressings of these OJC and Prestige reissues from the '70s and '80s sound like the vintage jazz albums they emulate, and sometimes they even beat the originals at their own Tubey Magical game. They can be every bit as rich, sweet and spacious as their earlier-pressed brethren in our experience.

Coleman Hawkins - Hawkins! Alive!

Classic Records Debunked

  (Item #: hawkihawki_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Classic Records LP debunked.

The copy I auditioned back in 1995 had Hawkin's horn sounding squawky and sour. We never carried it. I liked many of their other jazz titles -- they did a better job with jazz than any other kind of music -- but this was not their finest hour. Unless I got a bad copy, always a possibility.

Coleman Hawkins - Hawkins! Alive!

Reviewed in 2005

  (Item #: hawkihawki_2005) 



This Verve T Label Mono pressing DESTROYS the Classic Records reissue, hands down. Side one is lively, present, and dynamic, but a bit aggressive -- the horn can really bite when Hawk pushes it. Side two, however, sounds LOVELY. It's much smoother and very natural. This isn't an easy album to find in such gorgeous condition, and I bet you'd have a really tough time finding one that sounds as good as this one does on side two.

Coleman Hawkins - Today and Now

Reviewed in 2015

  (Item #: hawkitoday_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

We love the Tubey Magical breathy/reedy style of Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster. It seems that only the best early vinyl pressings manage to reproduce it properly. The CDs we've played over the years have had a tough time finding the richness in the sound; they end up being at least somewhat dry and hard, and that is simply not the right sound for this music.

Coleman Hawkins and Clark Terry - Back In Bean’s Bag

Reviewed in 2006

  (Item #: hawkibacki_2006) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Columbia 360 Label. A Jazz Primer if there ever was one! If you don’t get jazz this album will get it for you. There is simply not a false step or false note to be found anywhere on this recording.

This record has a magical midrange, like so many Columbias. It's a little rolled off on the extreme highs. If you have any way of boosting your top end, you can make this record really sing. As it is now, it's still quite good, just a bit more mellow than I know it should be.

Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins - Sonny Meets Hawk

Great in Mono

  (Item #: rollisonny_2010) 



WONDERFUL SOUND AND MUSIC! It is ridiculously tough to find copies of this album with good sound and quiet surfaces, but this pressing is a MONSTER. We’re generally not big fans of Mono recordings, but for this music it is really doing the job. It gives you mindblowing presence to the brass and real weight to the bottom end.

Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins - Sonny Meets Hawk

Great in Stereo

  (Item #: rollisonny_0613) 



This is a TOP SHELF pressing, one of the most exciting jazz records we've heard in some time! We dropped the needle on side one of this RCA stereo pressing and were FLOORED. After evaluating it completely and awarding it our top grade of A+++, we flipped and were blown away to find that side two was every bit as good. And to top it all off, the vinyl plays quietly throughout.

Think about this -- due to the nature of our business we play tons of jazz vinyl every week, multiple pressings of multiple albums. And this record completely knocked us out.
