Coleman Hawkins - Crown LPs

Even if you have never heard these records before they are as comfortable as that jacket that Woodie Allen has worn in his last 15 movies. You can be hipper than Woodie. Swing to these groovy tunes laid down in the early 60's.

Here's a pair of Hawk lps on the Crown label. How the hell do they end up there?
I upgrade these records every chance I get but ya just don't see em around much. As a matter of fact the current copy of the earlier lp was purchased sans cover but was still in better shape than the one I had at the time.

A double dose of Bean...same band both sessions.

Been waiting years for them to show up in a blog.

Thank you!

A great post. Thanks again, Hook!

Sorry too about all the storage server nonsense. Most all of the SendSpace links are good, but... the current scene is weird. And getting weirder.
