Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The 13 tracks on this CD, all recorded by Savoy records, are taken from two sessions, one in 1954 and the other in 1958. According to Bill Milkowski's liner notes, Hawkins joins a quartet of organ, piano, guitar (all unnamed), and drums (Buddy Smith) in Chicago on May, 24, 1954. For the April 24,1958 date, Hawkins is backed by "Count Basie's sax section" comprised of Marshall Royal and Frank Wess, alto saxophones, Frank Foster joining the Hawk on tenor sax, and Charlie Fowlkes on baritone sax. Also included is Basie's guitarist, Freddie Green, plus Nat Pierce on piano, Eddie Jones on bass, and Bobby Donaldson on drums. Also credited for the 1958 session is conducter/arranger Billy Ver Planck (who also composed "the exquisite blues," Thank's for the Misery.)

The choice of songs on this collection is rather unusual in that it includes three songs from Broadway shows (There Is Nothing Like A Dame, I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face, and September Song))and one standard from a 1937 Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers film composed by George and Ira Gershwin (You Can't Take That Away From Me). One other standard, I'm Confessin,' is performed admirably by Hawkins and his 1954 combo.

Besides Hawkins' captivating interpretations of these rather well-known pop standards, the other album highlights for this reviewer include three blues: Thank's for the Misery, On My Way, and Last Stop (these last two composed by Savoy record producer Ozzie Cadena).

For the most dedicated Hawkins fans,the complete 1954 session, which originally included a dozen tracks, can be found on a Savoy LP, The Hawk Returns. And it should also be noted that the track listing for this Timeless CD is identical with that of another Savoy CD called Confessin.

Format: Audio CD
This CD is somewhat of a mixed bag, but it does feature very strong performances by Hawkins. Three of the tracks feature a big band with Hawkins solos. The band is arranged and conducted by Billy Ver Planck, and sounds cool and beautifully laid out. Hawkins's solos are marvelous, always in character and full of nuance. The sound on these three tracks is very good 1958 stereo, recorded by the legendary Rudy Van Gelder. The other tracks are more of a problem. They were all recorded in monaural in Chicago in 1954 on one day. Of Hawkins's back up musicians, only the drummer is credited. Some of the tracks feature piano, and these are the main problem. The sound here is congested, although Hawkins comes through clearly enough, while the piano sounds twangy. The remaining tracks are with organ, and these feature decent sound. On all these tracks, Hawkins is in stellar form, commanding in his improvisation. If you can overlook the drawbacks of this production, it is highly rewarding Coleman Hawkins.
