Coleman Hawkins, Live In ’62 & ’64 (Jazz Icons). Cameras caught the patriarch of the tenor saxophone (1904-1969) during a final period at the top of his game. The concert in Belgium suffers slightly at the hands, and sticks, of drummer Kansas Fields, who plays well but has difficulty containing his solos. Hawkins is magisterial, as he is two years later in London, where Harry “Sweets” Edison joins him on trumpet, along with Sir Charles Thompson on piano and Jo Jones on drums. Jimmy Woode is the bassist in both concerts. George Arvanitas is the pianist in Belgium. Video and audio quality are acceptable in Belgium, superb in the BBC broadcast. This is a rare opportunity to witness at length the master’s undiminished creative power late in his career.
