Tenor-great Coleman Hawkins tended to be at his best when challenged by another horn player. On this highly enjoyable set, Hawkins is joined by the superb trumpeter Charlie Shavers and a strong rhythm section that includes guitarist Tiny Grimes and pianist Ray Bryant. With such superior songs as “Through for the Night,” “I Never Knew” and “La Rosita,” in addition to long jams, plenty of fireworks occur during this frequently exciting session.
