NIGHT HAWK features Coleman Hawkins with one of his most noted disciples, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Indeed, Davis derived much of his sound and concept from the great Hawk. Together these two tenor legends embark on a journey through such familiar and diverse tunes as "There is No Greater Love" and "In a Mellow Tone."
One might assume that NIGHT HAWK is a classic tenor batter. However, both horn players blow with restraint, concentrating more on making a superlative musical statement than wowing listeners with dashing pyrotechnics. Nevertheless, some healthy sparring is heard on Ellington's old war horse "In a Mellow Tone." On this selection, "Jaws" Davis plays higher and more ferocious but Hawkins wins on ideas. Other tunes such as the title cut, "Night Hawk," and Ken McIntyre's "Pedalin'" see the two saxophonists in a more bluesy (nearly hard bop) context. Finally, Tommy Flanagan's keen piano accompaniment supports and unifies the whole album. A compelling release, NIGHT HAWK is every tenor player's dream.
