Product Description:

Personnel: Ray Bryant (piano); George Morrow (upright bass); Max Roach (drums).
Coaxed out of seclusion in Chicago to replace Harold Land in the Clifford Brown/Max Roach quintet in 1954, this 1955 release was Rollins' first album as a leader since the conclusion of his first self-imposed sabbatical. Roach is on hand in the drummer's seat, spurring Rollins along every step of the way. Not that the tenorist needs much spurring--he comes flying out of the gate on the opening tune, "There's No Business Like Show Business" and doesn't let up for the duration of the session. He takes his first chorus on "Show Business" with only bassist George Morrow for support; when the drums come in he blows ferocious double-time before giving way to Roach's extremely musical solo.
Rollins and Roach also work off of each other to great effect on "Raincheck," trading fours on this imaginative selection from the from the Billy Strayhorn catalog. Even on the more relaxed tempo of "There Are Such Things," Rollins' exploration of the changes combines a classic tenor's warm breathy tone with a bebopper's determination to leave no possibility unconsidered. Pianist Ray Bryant's playing is also impeccable throughout.
