Feeding The Bean
FEEDING THE BEAN:
Coleman Hawkins is the subject this summer: as Lester Young once remarked: "Well, he was President first." Hawkins made the tenor saxophone a fundamental instrument of jazz, and for many years was billed as "the Best and Only" tenor sax soloist: Best and Only : B & O : Beano : The Bean.
