Coleman Hawkins recorded three sessions for Impulse Records in the early to mid '60s. Of the three, Today And Now is the most compelling. The unusual choice of repertoire is what sets this album apart. Versions of the traditional song "Go Li's Liza" and the fairly obscure Quincy Jones ballad "Quintessence" are creatively rendered. Indeed, Hawk seems inspired throughout; he plays with an abandon that is altogether effortless.

Today And Now is one of three albums tenor sax player Coleman Hawkins recorded for Impulse! Records in 1962 while continuing to work as a very in-demand session musician with Duke Ellington, Ben Webster, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and many others. Today And Now includes an unusual choice of repertoire for the day, performed with creativity and inspiration. The album's highlight is the Quincy Jones composition Quintessence recorded by the quartet in one take, which called "outstanding, a work of superior merit".
