This remains an obscure rarity...



...despite the always-scintillating presence of one "John" Griffin on tenor sax!

This might be the only album ever where THREE musicians are listed on the cover under their less-familiar alternate names.

Nice, Jeffrey.  He is a wonderful bass player.

Added to the wishlist.   ;)

Ellington meets Coleman Hawkins. An entertaining session, on the lightish side. Hawkins sounds as if he's played with Ellington all his life, and his distinctive timbre is a pleasure.



Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

One of my all-time favorites there - maybe "lightish" but just so freaking charming, and they're clearly having a blast. Love the opening mambo, in which Hawk appears last because he reportedly wandered into the studio while they were playing.

Same here - love that one dearly! Hawkins was on a roll (the last one, really) in 1962, his band with Tommy Flanagan, Major Holley and Eddie Locke recorded another magnificient album for Impulse (and more elsewhere) ... and the way he so easily and naturally blends in with a prime group of Ellingtonians is just wonderful. Also love the one track where Ray Nance switches to violin, but I really love the entire album!

Playing this one, bought from Hazel Miller in Ravenna, two weeks ago,during the two nights with Louis Moholo:

Es wollt ein meydlein grasen gan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Und do die roten röslein stan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Fick mich mehr, du hast dein ehr.
Kannstu nit, ich wills dich lern.
Fick mich, lieber Peter!

Yes, for sure. There's a definite sense of "good buds just hanging out and making great sounds" in these sessions.

Great story! :) Overall Hawkins's timbre really adds another dimension to the "Duke sound". I'd really like to have heard more from this combination!

There will never be another era like the Golden Age of Hollywood.  We didn't know how to blow up buildings then so we had no choice but to tell great stories with great characters.-Ben Mankiewicz
