CD Reviews

UNBELIEVABLE! Max Roach puts on quite a show!

"I can promise you, if you are a fan of jazz, especially Max Roach, then you need to PLEASE invest in this one! It's tough to fathom why it hasn't been reviewed yet. It really is a thing of beauty! Max Roach simply puts on a dazzling show, and does an excellent job leading this solid quintet. Roach is flawless throughout the entire recording! I have listened to this one enough times now, that I feel safe throwing out such lofty praise. Max especially seems to gel with Arthur Davis on bass, the two of them are always in perfect rythm. Pay close attention to the first song "Tuba De Nod", for besides an excellent performance by Ray Traper (tuba), it's the duo of Taylor and Max that really make this one special midway through the piece. All I have to say once more is - UNBELIEVABLE!

Both Booker Little (trumpet) and the seemingly always solid George Coleman (tenor sax) also help make this sleeper truly one to add to your collection. Little, who gets the most action of the three horns, really shines and in my opinion gives one of his greatest efforts ever. His highlights include absolutely tearing it up with a blistering performance on "Old Folks", going off for nearly four minutes almost never coming up for air and with Miles Davis-esque execution, he sounds spectacularly smooth on "Sadiga". George Coleman isn't give as much air time as Little, but at times you really wish he did (i.e. "Milano"). Just another steady day at the office for Mr. Coleman.

You will be thanking me after you listen to this one. The volume definitely needs to be turned up a bit!"
