Blues For Greasy

Coleman Hawkins

Coleman’s blues

Filmed during a 1962 TV appearance featuring Coleman Hawkins (tenor sax), Georges Arvanitas (piano), Mickey Baker (guitar), Jimmy Woode (bass), and Kansas Fields (drums).

Coleman and the band turn a simple blues into a jazz masterpiece. The genre has long adopted elements of the blues and elaborated upon them. The practice of frequently performing embellished blues tunes is also commonplace among jazz musicians.
