Overview

Prestige Profiles, Vol. 4

Prestige Profiles, Vol. 4 contains recycled tracks taken from tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins' stint with Prestige Records in the late '50s and early '60s. This set, aimed at the casual listener, includes the Hawk's renditions of such standards as "Greensleeves," "I'll Get By (As Long as I Have You)," "I'll Never Be the Same," and "Sweetest Sounds." These later performances demonstrate that Coleman Hawkins retained the title as "the inventor of the tenor saxophone," an attribute he had held since the late '30s. As alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges was quoted as saying about Hawkins during this later period, "The older he gets, the better he gets." Not only does Prestige Profiles, Vol. 4 provide the novice with an excellent sampler at a mid-line price, but, for a limited time, the first ten volumes in this series include a free bonus compilation CD of Prestige artists.
