Each arrangement is worked to a point that actually propels the soloists, gives them – and Brown particularly – maximum lift. These are classics of modern jazz.”- PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“January 4, 1956: Clifford Brown, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Richie Powell and George Morrow met up in a New York studio to record At Basin Street, which would be the group’s final album. That summer, Clifford Brown and Richie Powell died in a tragic car accident. This final testimony is one of the most exciting records from a quintet which was like very few others.”- JAZZ MAGAZINE
