This could be my favorite straight-ahead jazz album ever. An impeccable line-up: two rising stars in the front line - Clifford Brown, who died in a car crash soon after this recording, and Sonny Rollins, who went on to become the greatest sax player that ever lived (my opinion, no disrespect to Coltrane or Parker intended); Bud Powell's little genius brother Richie on the keys, and of course Mr. Roach himself on the traps. Music as God intended it to be played. I give it all the endorsements there are.
This is the original album, without the bonus tracks, alternate takes, and stuff.
