Product Description

Heavyweight 180gm vinyl LP pressing of Coleman Hawkins Encounters Ben Webster. Both saxophonists were under contract with Norman Granz, and on October 15, 1957, Webster went into the studio with Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Stan Levey to record his album Soulville. The following day, October 16, Coleman Hawkins did the same with a similar rhythm section (Alvin Stoller replaced Levey on drums) and taped his album The Genius of Coleman Hawkins. And then, later that night, Ben and Bean were reunited with Peterson, Brown, Ellis and Stoller to produce their first collaborative work since 1944. To the original seven tracks from the original LP we added 'Cocktails for Two' and a rare short version of 'La Rosita', both from the same session. Jazz Track. 2009.

HASH(0xa2539798) out of 5 stars Great Performance and Vinyl Pressing July 27 2012

The music is outstanding as described way better than I could in many published reviews. If you like warm 1950s Jazz, this is a must have any any format. The key here is the vinyl pressing from Waxtime out of Spain is flawless. 180g pressing as good as I've heard, no modern vinyl pressing flaws that I could hear.

Purchased the reissue from the waxtime label. A 5-star rating for the great and timeless content, of course. But also 5 stars for the pressing, the inner sleeve and the cover. I was not so happy with other waxtime releases, but this one I will recommend,
