Jazz Icons: Coleman Hawkins - Live In '62 & '64

Jazz Icons: Coleman Hawkins presents two incredible concerts from 1962 and 1964 featuring 140 minutes of music. Both concerts feature stellar European and American side-musicians including Harry 'Sweets' Edison on trumpet and drummer Papa Jo Jones both jazz legends in their own right. The 1962 show is a newly-discovered one-hour concert from the Adolphe Sax Festival in Belgium, which has never been seen. Coleman Hawkins, 'The Father of Jazz Saxophone' demonstrates in these two concerts why he is still considered one of the most important innovators in the history of jazz.


The release of the fourth installment of the Jazz Icons series now brings it up to 30 separate DVDs and over 40 hours of vintage jazz performances, making this the most comprehensive music DVD series of any genre. Reelin' In The Years who produced the Jazz Icons series are also responsible for the Grammy-nominated American Folk Blues Festival series, the multi-platinum selling Definitive Motown series (Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles) and the British Invasion series (Small Faces, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Dusty Springfield, and Herman's Hermits.) As in all of their projects, each DVD is produced with the full support and cooperation of the artists or their estates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Father of jazz Sax Schools Us December 18, 2009
By Tym S.
Format:DVD
The father of Jazz saxophone, COLEMAN HAWKINS, gets deluxe due with a whopping 2 hours 20 minutes of bop chops.

This disc unleashes two great shows with different bands from tours of Europe. His drummer on the first concert, Kansas Fields, puts sway into martial precision while Coleman puts the mellow in melodic. Hawkins is in fine form here, showing us why he earned his crown as the master of jazz improvisation. Parisian pianist Georges Arvanitas is an excellent foil with his modern and sometimes risky chordings thrown off with easy aplomb.

The second show with a new line-up finds Hawkins pacing himself in a slow burn. With his almost sad dignity trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison nearly steals the show from his friend; he especially stands out on his unexpected ballad choice, "The Girl From Ipanema". Hawkins is back in the groove before long and abbetted greatly by bassist Jimmy Woode and the great drummer "Papa" Jo Jones. This man put saxophone on the map and on this great collection he shows us how.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz Icons does it again! July 16, 2010
By rayja
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I hesitated getting this one because the dates and locations matched another Coleman Hawkins DVD that I reviewed. Of course, having other shoppers review products really helps. The reviewer that commented about Harry Sweets Edidson stealing the show on Girl From Ipamema, that told me these weren't the same concerts. This one was really great. Sure they are in B&W, but so what, the quality is high for 1962 & 1964, these great pioneers performance is top notch, I count myself lucky to witness these legends in action. Thank you Jazz Icons, again.

5.0 out of 5 stars More and better footage from two great concerts July 15, 2012
Format:DVD
My first introduction to these concerts was from a DVD titled Coleman Hawkins/Harry Edison Quintet: London Concert 1964. That video contained what must be a different night from the 1964 concerts in London, as well as a different night for the 1962 Belgium concert. While I was thrilled to get that DVD the audio and video were poor. This DVD does not share those flaws. Moreover, the concerts on this one are twice as long and contain different songs.

The first segment on this DVD is from June, 1962 in Brussels. The set list is: Disorder At The Border, Autumn Leaves, Lover Come Back To Me, Moonlight In Vermont, All The Things You Are and Ow! These were performed with Coleman on tenor, Jimmy Woode on bass, George Arvanitas on piano, and Kansas Fields on drums.

Performance on this segment are a lot more energetic than the one for the same venue that is on the other DVD I mentioned. Woode and Arvanitas took some amazing solos and were 'on' throughout the concert. The drummer, Kansas Fields, was a bit over the top in my opinion. He was an excellent drummer and if you like plenty of chops on solos and fills you will like him. I thought he could have been more subtle, but that is both a personal preference and probably influenced by how much more subtly and smoothly the great drummer, Papa Jo Jones, played in the next segment.

About the second segment: it was shot at Wembley Town Hall in London in October 1964. This concert was in conjunction with the BBC's Jazz 625 series with excellent video but a slight echo in the audio. I am unsure as to why the audio is the way it is because one would have thought that it would have been cleaned up or processed for television broadcast.
