Hawk Relaxes on LP

2014 special vinyl LP pressing reissue series title commemorating the 65th anniversary of Prestige Records & the 90th birthday of legendary recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder. Like a fine wine, Hawkins proves on this 1961 landmark album that good things only get better with age. Joined by six-string maestro Kenny Burrell, the legendary tenor saxophonist grooves in a mellow mood in this quintet setting alongside pianist Ronnell Bright, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Andrew Cyrille. A high water mark in his later career, it showcases the understated sophistication of Hawkins' playing as he makes instant classics out of tunes from the Great American Songbook in a style befitting of an evening by the fire, the calm ocean, or a late night with a sweetheart over candles and wine. This quintet, quite possibly the most unique Hawkins ever fronted, delivers a supple, relaxed, and sophisticated affair on par with anything he ever did during this period. Recorded by the inimitable Rudy Van Gelder, this is a must-have for both the casual fan and the hard-core Jazz aficionado.
