The complete recordings by The Jazz Modes, an experimental small jazz formation fronted by Charlie Rouse on tenor sax and Julius Watkins on French horn, plus Gildo Mahones on piano.

With slight personnel variations, this group recorded a total of five albums, most of which are now very hard to find. All of these LPs are included here in their entirety and in chronological order.

A member of big bands, among them those of Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, and Duke Ellington, Charlie Rouse is best remembered for his more than ten years as a member of the Thelonious Monk Quartet. One of the first and probably the best jazz French horn player, Julius Watkins
recorded with numerous jazz greats, including John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and Gil Evans, Phil Woods, Clark Terry, Quincy Jones, Johnny Griffin, Randy Weston, and the Jazz Composer's Orchestra.

As a bonus, we have included three further complete albums, all of which were originally issued as 10” LPs. Oscar Pettiford’s Oscar Rides Again is the only other existing album, outside of the Jazz Modes body of work, to feature both Rouse and Watkins in the front line. The two volumes by the Julius Watkins Sextet, on the other hand, present Watkins in the company of other celebrated tenor saxophonists: Frank Foster and Hank Mobley.
