Mr Coleman Randolph Hawkins was one of the prominent tenor voices both before and through the bop era.
Begining his career as early as 1920, he recorded until the end of the 60's, featuring with (one could probably say they featured with him) countless other giants (Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Max Roach, Dizzy Gillespie, J.J. Johnson).
His influence was deep on other musicians.
His intense and unique saxophone voice can be discovered on The Hawk Flies High (Riverside), while most of his extensive discography is highly recommendable.
