"I originally heard the music on this CD via a modern dance performance by the Twyla Tharp dance company called "Roy's Joy" a few years back. It blew me away so I went in search of this CD on Vogue and it has been one of my favorites ever since. This is Roy in a small group setting at his best, swinging and wailing to some original compositions, standards and a few ballads thrown in. Recorded in 1950 in Paris Roy is joined by Zoot Sims and both Ed Shaughnessy (former Tonight Show drummer) and Kenny Clarke on drums as well as a few other top line sidemen. These sessions really swing and showcase Roy in his prime at his inventive best. Don't miss it."
