Culled from Coleman Hawkins's late-1950s/early-'60s sessions for Prestige Records, this concise 11-track collection presents the tenor saxophone legend relatively late in his career. Although his bop heyday was behind him, Hawkins is in fine form on these lightly swinging tunes (most notably "I'll Never Be the Same" and "In a Mellow Tone"), backed by outstanding musicians such as guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Red Garland, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Andrew Cyrille. This solid 2005 set also includes a bonus disc that compiles Prestige tracks by fellow sax players Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Stan Getz, and Zoot Sims, along with other jazz luminaries.
