From cover: This is Brown-Roach, Inc. (the Clifford Brown-Max Roach Quintet of 1955), led by its tenor saxophonist, Sonny Rollins. Coming on the heels of "Worktime" (OJC-007), it helped to further Sonny's then-growing reputation. He had already established himself with musicians and now the jazz public was catching on. This set is an exceptional blend of rare material from the standard area -- "Kiss and Run," "I Feel a Song Coming On," "Count Your Blessings"--And two Rollins originals -- "Valse Hot" and "Pent-Up House." On the later, Sonny and Brownie combine in one of the most brilliant interactions in the recorded annals of jazz
