Digitally remastered two-fer features Booker Little's complete recorded discography as a leader with tenor saxophone virtuoso George Coleman. The 1958 album Booker Little 4 & Max Roach and 1961 release Booker Little and Friend mark the trumpeter's recording debut as a leader and his final album respectively. It is interesting to note Booker Little's evolution as both a composer and improviser by comparing his first album with his last. The exquisite compositions 'Victory And Sorrow', 'Looking Ahead' and 'Matilde' show just how far the young trumpeter had grown as a writer. Lone Hill Jazz. 2005.
Classic music but sound could probably be better

(4 out of 5 stars)
"No question this CD is a great value and well worth picking up if you like this genre. I believe it includes Little's first and last albums. (He only made 4 or 5 records before his tragic death from a rare disease.) Booker Little was an outstanding musician and composer, and these recordings (especially his last album, which comprises the first half of this CD) are of classic status in modern jazz. I was somewhat disappointed in the sound quality of this import CD--expected better in this day and age. Little's "Out Front" CD has better sound."
