Can't Stay "Quiet" Any Longer
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 10/18/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I stumbled upon this album a little while ago while I was going through my collection to find jazz recordings celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year. (If anyone's curious, I created a Listmania of some of my favorites -- "Great Jazz Albums Turning 50 in 2009.") First let me say that I don't have this music via this new "Originals" disc, but instead via the Mosaic set collecting Max Roach's Plus Four sessions for Mercury. However, I am delighted that Verve has chosen to reissue "Quiet As Its Kept." This terrific 1959 session features the final edition of the Max Roach Plus Four -- the Turrentine brothers on trumpet and tenor sax, Julian Priester on trombone and Bob Boswell on bass, all joining the famous drummer. While this group doesn't quite measure up to the Roach quintet/sextet with Brownie and Sonny (few could), it is certainly a solid date featuring memorable performances. Don't stay "Quiet" any longer, get this album."
