"Sonny Meets Hawk" is the memorable meeting of two brilliant giants - Sonny Rollins, one has again and again called the master of the modern tenor saxophone, and Coleman Hawkins, the father of jazz saxophone. Both have contributed enormous for jazz improvisation, about the limits of their respective instrument beyond. The total of their two works formed the foundation for this impressive Something-gibt's-only once in a lifetime album. This recording is exceptional in every sense, not only because it means the first interaction of these two great musicians - except for a short joint stage appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival of 1963, by which this studio recording was inspired. Both of them have their own strong personality in let pass the other, yet none has lost his individuality. And where one 'summarizes in the bag' to the other, it happens with musical logic and respect;., The goal of a firm cohesive duet relationship stands in their spirit always remember Perhaps the most outstanding aspect of this album is that none of the musicians playing on safe territory remains, everyone uses his strong imagination which pass all the time, assumes all risks daring improvisation in buying - but also gains the satisfaction that offers such an approach.
