Both Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster had the strength and depth of sound to fill a room without a microphone. As Hawkins once put it, "On the saxophone, sound is it. - I didn't have to work on it - the sound just came. You take a lot of boys over in New York, those who do all this playing - and the crazy ones who do all the crazy playing. They can't get my sound - that's what bugs them."
Some of today's saxophonists come close, but none has either the Hawkins-Webster fullness of tone or the enveloping spirit that sounds a strikingly individual identity. That's also called soul. When it came to music, neither Hawkins nor Webster would compromise.
