I dont know what album the previous reviwer is dscussing but it isn't this one.

On this album Hawkins is accompanied by Buck Clayton (trumpet), Hank Jones (piano) Ray Brown )bass) and Mickey Sheen (drums).

But it is among Hawk's best albums, his great solo on 'Bird of Prey' blues is worth the price of the CD. But all the tracks show why Hawk was always considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, tenor sax players. Admirable support from Hank Jones, and the rhythm section of Brown and Sheen is a model of subtle drive and support.

In telling the story of jazz as briefly as possible, I go from Louis' "West End Blues" to Hawk's "Body and Soul." Then to illustrate Hawkins' so-called "vertical" harmonic style vs. Prez' "linear" melodic style, I go to "Bird of Prey Blues" or the equally revealing, but shorter, "Vignette." In both instances, Hawk "locks in" with the rhythm section, getting into an unrelenting 8th-note heavy-light rhythmic pattern, or "gear," while exploring all of the harmonic possibilities (save the upper extensions that the beboppers and later Coltrane would probe) and building his solos to a climactic peak, his dynamics becoming fuller, his sound more impassioned, his progress toward the goal more urgent as the solo progresses.

Apart from a teaching vehicle (even for experienced saxophonists who had no idea about Hawkins' harmonic approach, his way of "outlining" the chords in arpeggio fashion even while arranging his ideas melodically), this recording (originally on Felsted, a subsidiary of London records) is a joy to listen to. Hank Jones' piano sound is as beautifully captured by the engineering (more natural, personal and rich than the Van Gelder-engineered sessions) as his playing is impeccable. Buck Clayton demonstrates why he was one of the most resourceful and warm of the so-called "hot" trumpet players. Ray Brown's distinctive attack (not Milt Hinton, as claimed in the preceding review), sound and pulse, along with Hawkins' self-contained act as practically a "one-man band," grounds, or anchors, the proceedings in solid, bluesy soil, helping to dispel any lingering criticism of Hawk as a tentative player when it came to simple 12-bar blues.

This album was recorded when stereo was already available, and its artist are among the very best chamber jazz players: Hawkins, Clayton, Hines, Hinton, all of them in the peack of their art when recording this album. The result is what only the jazz lovers know. It alternates songs with fater rithms and more melodic ones, in both cases Hawkins shows his wonderfull excellence and characteristic styles.
