  • Coleman Hawkins Lover Man

    Lover Man features masterful tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins at the height of the swing era during the bop revolution. Hawk is magisterial – composed, commanding but unostentatious here, breaking out occasionally into a flurry of notes and exhibiting a mature sense of dynamics. Hawkins is in fine form here, playing with typical visceral bravura. Playing, in fact, like the man who invented jazz tenor saxophone.

    Lover Man is a Stereo Analog Tape to DXD and DSD Transfer from Rene Laflamme and Andre Perry at 2xhd Mastering. The album was originally reissued on the Storyville Records label. The Stereo DSD 512 edition was created by Tom Caulfield at the NativeDSD Mastering Lab using the Signalyst HQPlayer 4 Pro mastering tools.

    Mike Hennessey tells us the story behind the 6 tracks on Lover Man β€œThe first four sides of this album capture the momentous meeting of four great iconoclastic jazz figures. It was a historic, magical moment when Coleman Hawkins, Bud Powell, Oscar Pettiford, and Kenny Clarke came together on the stage of the Grugahalie in Essen on the evening of April 2nd, 1960 and played for an Essen Jazz Festival audience of some 8,000 people. That audience was uniquely privileged because it was to witness the performance of some most inspirational spontaneous music from a quartet of jazz masters who were destined never to play together again...."

    Lover Man is available at NativeDSD.Com in Stereo DSD 512, DSD 256, DSD 128, DSD 64 and DXD. It is a DSD Exclusive, Not Available on SACD release.
