After overcoming the creative crisis brought about by the death of his trumpeter and co-leader Clifford Brown in 1956, and having disbanded his new quintet with Booker Little and George Coleman, Max Roach (1924-2007) kept his faith in the strength of hard bop, and reformed his piano-less group Max Roach Plus Four in 1959.

This time he put his trust in a band of young jazzmen that included the Turrentine brothers—Stanley and Tommy, on tenor sax and trumpet respectively— trombonist Julian Priester, bassist Bob Boswell and, occasionally, pianists Ray Bryant or Cedar Walton.

This 2-CD set gathers the complete studio recordings this group made (except one issued under Tommy Turrentine’s name) between July 1959 and January 1960, thus giving new life to one of the least known periods in Max Roach’s intense jazz career. In addition, the songs featuring Abbey Lincoln catch this exceptional singer in fine form.
