Down Beat - p.754 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e does what he does best, plying his husky, breathy tone with unhurried insistence and leaving his compatriots -- a stellar septet hand-picked for his sole turn as leader under Orrin Keepnews' watch -- room to rise to his standard."

Although Coleman Hawkins was 51 when THE HAWK FLIES HIGH was recorded in 1957, he hadn't lost any of the vigor or imaginative dexterity that had typified his original work in the '30s and '40s. In fact, one of Hawkins's greatest assets was his ability to adapt to and incorporate changing styles, and that's precisely what he does here by bringing his swing-inflected chops into a straight bop context. Surrounded by then-young firebrands J.J. Johnson and Idrees Sulieman (on trombone and trumpet, respectively), Hawkins turns in memorable performances on album highlights such as "Juicy Fruit," "Laura," and "Sanctity." The disc was remastered and reissued in 2008.
