Other than a trio set with the legendary pianist Hasaan Ibn Ali, this set was Max Roach's only recording as a leader during 1963-67. Three of the six numbers ("Nommo," "St. Louis Blues" and "In the Red") find Roach heading a group that includes trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, altoist James Spaulding, pianist Ronnie Mathews, bassist Jymie Merritt and, on "St. Louis Blues," Roland Alexander on soprano. Their music is essentially advanced hard-bop with a generous amount of space taken up by Roach's drum solos. The other three selections ("The Drum Also Waltzes," "Drums Unlimited" and "For Big Sid") are unaccompanied features for Max Roach and because of the melodic and logically-planned nature of his improvisations, they continually hold on to one's attention.

Study in Brown features the 1955 version of the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet, a group also including tenor saxophonist Harold Land, pianist Richie Powell, and bassist George Morrow. One of the premiere early hard bop units, this band had unlimited potential. Highlights of this set are "Cherokee" (during which trumpeter Brown is brilliant), "Swingin'," and "Sandu." All of this group's recordings are well worth acquiring.

“What was immediately striking was the fresh sound of the quintet. The remarkable empathy within the group, the careful selection of material and the exciting arrangements by Powell all contributed mightily to that sound. Clifford Brown had come into his own as composer as “Sweet Clifford,” “Joy Spring” and “Daahoud” demonstrate. It didn’t hurt that Roach and Brown were complete originals and among the greatest performers on their instruments.

Thomas Walter Turrentine, Jr. was a swing and hard bop trumpeter of the 1940s to 1960s, the older brother of saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. He played in the bands of Benny Carter, Earl Bostic, Charles Mingus, Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, and Count Basie. He later recorded with Sonny Clark, Lou Donaldson, and his brother's bands. His working relationship with Max Roach was spawned in part when he joined the Max Roach Quintet in the late 1950s following the death of Clifford Brown.

Although Clifford Brown did a phenomenal amount of commercial recordings during his all too brief lifetime (he died prior to his 26th birthday in a car crash that also took the life of his quintet's pianist Richie Powell, Bud's younger brother), relatively few of the recordings he made were on stage. Fortunately, this CD includes performances from two 1956 broadcasts from the old Basin Street club in New York City, and two tracks from a Carnegie Hall concert the previous year…

Live recording of two jazz legends Max Roach (drums) and Mal Waldron (piano), at the concert held to celebrate Mal Waldron's 70th birthday. Recorded at the Desingel Arts Centre, Antwerp, Belgium, 20 September 1995. Featuring a comfortable duo between one of the kings of bebop, Max Roach, and master genre-bender Mal Waldron, this two-CD set contains a complete concert in honor of the pianist's 70th birthday. (Actually, there is also a bonus track of a cut recorded before the concert.) The 30 pieces are mostly fully improvised and flow into one another flawlessly.

In a profession star-crossed by early deaths – especially the bebop division – Max Roach was long a shining survivor, one of the last giants from the birth of bebop. He and Kenny Clarke instigated a revolution in jazz drumming that persisted for decades; instead of the swing approach of spelling out the pulse with the bass drum, Roach shifted the emphasis to the ride cymbal. The result was a lighter, far more flexible texture, giving drummers more freedom to explore the possibilities of their drum kits and drop random "bombs" on the snare drum, while allowing bop virtuosos on the front lines to play at faster speeds.

Features 24 bit digital remastering. Comes with a description. Hasaan was an absolutely unbelievable piano player and composer. If you like Monk, if you know of Herbie Nichols, Hasaan was like Monk plus Nichols to the tenth power. He was a legend who made only one record!!! One of the great tragedies in record history. This is really a Hasaan record, his music and leadership. Max Roach lent his name to it to help it get out in the market. I met Roach in the 70's and asked him about Hasaan…he was immediately overwhelmed, and told me that Hasaan was in poor health. This is a unique recording in every sense.

Remastered CD release of a 1958 LP with the young (20 yo then) trumpetist Booker Little, member of a quartet (with George Coleman sax, Tommy Flanagan piano, Art Davis bass), and the great Max Roach drums. Booker was about to be a member of the "new Max Roach quintet", replacing the early lost Clifford Brown. This CD release has 2 bonus tracks (7 & 8), with Booker Little and an octet but without Max. More classy jazz from the 50's. Enjoy.
