Awakening is an album by American saxophonist Sonny Fortune recorded in 1975 and released on the Horizon label. In The Village Voice, Robert Christgau said while Awakening featured nothing innovative, it did showcase Fortune's knack for "great synthesis", including "shades of hard bop and late-'50s Miles in a more modal setting, so lyrical and tough-minded that the 12-minute flute-and-congas thing (the title cut, wouldn't you know) becomes quite credible, even listenable.

With a slate of expert, professional sidemen (Billy Hart, John Hicks, Reggie Workman, Charles Sullivan, etc), Awakening never amazes, but it also never disappoints. Fortune, as usual, offers several spirited solos, while his cohorts incessantly swing. Straight-ahead jazz fans will appreciate this yeoman set. Track Listing.
