The Hawk in Paris is an album by saxophonist Coleman Hawkins featuring compositions related to Paris performed with an orchestra arranged and conducted by Manny Albam which was recorded in 1956 for the RCA Records subsidiary Vik label. What could have been a novelty or an insipid affair is actually one of Coleman Hawkins's more memorable albums".

Hawkins had always wanted to record with a large string section and he received his wish on the majority of these 12 romantic melodies, all of which have some association with Paris. The surprise is that he plays with a great deal of fire (his doubletiming on "My Man" is wondrous), and that Manny Albam's arrangements mostly avoid being muzaky and quite often are creative and witty. What could have been a novelty or an insipid affair is actually one of Coleman Hawkins's more memorable albums.

This is not a sleepy strings album- it consists of many up tempo tunes which the Hawk rips into with unabashed joy and some his best playing on record. All the songs perfectly reflect the feel of Paris in the 1950s. I would however avoid his other "with strings" album "Hawk Talk" - that is one his few bad albums. 6 people found this helpful.

Notes

"Twenty years after he discovered Paris, Hawkins paid tribute to the City of Light in a setting arranged by Manny Albam. French popular songs, film music, and tried and true standards bring Paris to life in black-and-white - is that Michel Simon on tenor sax?"
Alex Dutilh (Jazzman)

Recorded at Webster Hall in New York City, on July 9 (3, 4, 9 & 10), 11 (1, 2, 6 & 7) and 13 (5, 8, 11 & 12), 1956
