Product Description:

Personnel: Clifford Brown (trumpet); Max Roach (drums); Harold Land (tenor saxophone); Richie Powell (piano); George Morrow (bass).
Recorded on August 2, 3, 6 & 10, 1954.
BROWN & ROACH INC. is a specially imported, limited-edition reissue with 3 bonus tracks. All tracks have been digitally remastered (24-bit).
Given all the Clifford Brown compilations that have saturated the market, it's nice to hear a full original album by the lauded trumpeter. On this 1954 release, Brown--who died in a '56 car wreck at age 25--teams up with drummer Max Roach, and the result is a classic set of bebop. Standards "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You" and "Stompin' at the Savoy" are played with mastery, and originals "Sweet Clifford" and "Mildama" by Brown and Roach respectively, highlight the two virtuosos' technical and conceptual abilities; breathtaking trumpet and drum solos are heard on both cuts. However, it is the wistful "Darn That Dream" that steals the show on this record. A gorgeous ballad in the hands of any professional, the De Lange-Van Heusen standard really shines when played by these jazz greats.
