Description
Jazz saxophone pioneer Coleman Hawkins' first LP for Riverside in 1957, now remastered, remains utterly compelling more than half a century later.

“Hawkins keeps abreast of the times, but he really doesn’t change to suit them. The Hawk Flies High was an atonishingly intense beginning, almost a comeback record and one in which Hawkins plays with ferocious spirit.… Sulieman and Johnson were intriguing choices: it brings out the bluesman in each of them rather than the bopper, and both seldom played with this kind of bite. ‘Laura’ is a peerless ballad, but it’s the blues on ‘Juicy Fruit’ and ‘Blue Lights’ that really dig in.”—Penguin Guide

"The musicians quickly adapted to the unfamiliar music, especially the leader's old-fashioned swinger 'Sancticity' (which sounds like it could have been part of Count Basie's repertoire) and the pianist's tightly woven bop vehicle 'Chant.'"—All Music Guide
