AllMusic Review by

A fine though not extraordinary compilation of Coleman Hawkins' better tunes such as "Body and Soul" and "Honeysuckle Rose." Given the tremendous number of Hawkins best-ofs already available, there's no reason to go dashing to the record store for this. Still nice to have in your collection, though, particularly if you're a casual fan looking for a light overview of Hawkins' music.
