So...Doug Hawkins Did Good Work!, Eh?

5 posts in this topic

listening to various "early" Blue Note recording's made at WOR. The engineer (so far), is always Doug Hawkins, and it seems like he did a REALLY good job capturing a full group sound, balance is great, so is the presence.

What do we know about this guy, other than he also appears to have done some early work for Prestige? Was he a WOR guy who alos did radio shows? Or what?

I first encountered his name in the early '60s on Bob Thiele reissues of Signature material with Hawk, Pres, etc.
