AllMusic Review by

Classics continues its excavation of Coleman Hawkins' career with this mid-'40s slice of "Bean" during the burgeoning bebop revolution. In fact, Hawkins made some of his best sides with a few of those beboppers, including "Cocktails for Two" and his own "Bean and the Boys"; the likes of J.J. Johnson, Fats Navarro, Max Roach, and Hank Jones are heard on these and two other sides here, with plenty more bop-centric dates on other roundups still to be had. Not really a good sampler or primer, 1946-1947 will make Hawkins' completists happy all the same.
