This collection brings together for the first time on CD all the tunes that Coleman Hawkins and His All Stars recorded during the legendary session that took place in New York on November 8, 1954 for the Jazztone label. Three of the titles, "Undecided," "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Time on My Hands" were not included on the original 12-inch Jazztone LP release (J-1201). "Undecided" was originally issued on a 7-inch (J-708); "Honeysuckle Rose" was originally on 10-inch sampler (J-SPEC 100), and "Time on My Hands" was originally issued on a Concert Hall 7-inch sample (J-SPEC-700).

Press reviews

"This 1954 studio date by Coleman Hawkins finds the tenor saxophonist in great form, joined by a fine group that includes pianist Billy Taylor, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Jo Jones, trombonist Eddie Bert, and trumpeter Emmett Berry. Hawkins' boppish take on "Cheek to Cheek" moves at a fast clip, though he never exhausts himself of ideas. The full sextet is heard on a portion of the session, including a lush but brisk take of "Lullaby of Birdland," a snappy run through "Get Happy," and the old swinger "Blue Lou." There are many strong solos by the supporting cast, but it's difficult to eclipse the sound of Hawkins' tenor when he is in top form as on this CD."
