Sirius (Coleman Hawkins album)

Sirius is an album by saxophonist Coleman Hawkins recorded in 1966 but not released by the Pablo label until 1974. AllMusic reviewer Scott Yanow stated "Hawkins's final studio session is rather sad... Recorded in late 1966, this quartet set finds Hawk short of breath and unable to play long phrases, he is able to get away with this deficiency on the faster pieces but the ballads are rather painful to hear. At this late stage Hawkins still had his majestic tone but this recording is only of historical interest".
