Coleman Hawkins – Body & Soul

61m8-xy5f9l-_sx425_

Well, I’d be bloody remiss not to include this album!

Coleman Hawkins is at least 50% of the canonical tenor tone, with Prez bein’ the other half.

For the vast majority of the saxophone world, that’s the alpha and omega. Either you purr like Lester or you buzz like Hawk.
