Night Hawk is an album by saxophonists Coleman Hawkins with Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded at the end of 1960 and released on the Swingville label.[3]


The AllMusic site awarded the album 4 stars stating "Hawkins was one of the main inspirations of his fellow tenor Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, so it was logical that they would one day meet up in the recording studio. This CD has many fine moments from these two highly competitive jazzmen".[1]
