"The vision of this set is to present selected Coleman Hawkins recordings mainly from the 1930s and 1940s as originally recorded on labels currently owned by Sony Music Entertainment (Banner, Bluebird, Brunswick, Cameo, Clarion, Columbia, Conqueror, Domino, Harmony, Lincoln, Melotone, OKeh, Oriole, Perfect, Romeo, Signature, Velvet Tone, Victor, Vocalion and 'X'). We have also included sessions that currently have no ownership and are in the public domain (Baronet, Ca-Song, Continental, Manor and Regis). The criteria for admission then fell on all recordings led by Hawkins in addition to sessions where as a sideman for other bands he solos for more than 16 bars"--Book, p. 46.
