The Song of the Hawk: The Life and Recordings of Coleman Hawkins

Sprednja platnica
University of Michigan Press, 1990 - 429 strani
"Hawkins, the most imitated and influential saxophonist in jazz up to Charlie Parker#x19;s modern revolution, stood virtually alone among jazz musicians who came to prominence in the 1920s and successfully made the transition to modern jazz 25 years later. He also set a standard of dignity for black musicians that was rarely equalled." #x14;Choice, July 1991.
