In 1954, months before the Jazz Messengers, spearheaded by Art Blakey and Horace Silver, formed serendipitously at a Blue Note recordings session, Max Roach was forming his own quintet with Clifford Brown in Los Angeles. It would become the first defining group in the music that would soon be known as hard bop.

By August, the group’s line-up with Harold Land, Richie Powell and George Morrow and a major label deal with Emarcy Records were secured. On June 26, 1956, a car accident took the life of Brown and Powell, bringing this brilliant ensemble’s legacy to a close.

What was immediately striking was the fresh sound of the quintet. The remarkable empathy within the group, the careful selection of material and the exciting arrangements by Powell all contributed mightily to that sound. Clifford Brown had come into his own as composer as "Sweet Clifford," "Joy Spring" and "Daahoud" demonstrate. It didn't hurt that Roach and Brown were complete originals and among the greatest performers on their instruments.

Six months later, the ensemble went into the studio to cut 11 gems, two of which were used to complete "Clifford Brown And Max Roach" while the rest formed the third album "Study In Brown." Their growth as a band is evident and, by this time, Powell and Land were also composing for the group.

In late 1955, Harold Land left the quintet for personal reasons. Roach recruited Sonny Rollins, who was available and at the top of his game. The chemistry between Rollins and Brown was immediate. In January and February 1956, they cut the quintet's final album "At Basin Street" which was actually a studio album. On fact, it was stunning studio album from any point of view.

On June 26, 1956, a car accident took the life of Brown and Powell, bringing this brilliant ensemble's legacy to a close. Brown had done many side projects for Emarcy in those two years, but it is the four albums by the quintet that have had the most enduring influence on successive generations of jazz artists. In the words of liner note writer Bob Blumenthal, "the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet created one of the very greatest string of small-group recordings in jazz history, worthy of consideration alongside the Hot Fives and Sevens of Louis Armstrong and the quintets of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis."

Mosaic has returned to the original analog masters of these four seminal albums and remastered them and pressed them on 180-gram vinyl at the renowned Record Technology Inc. plant in Camarillo, California. The booklet boasted a great essay by Bob Blumenthal and a wealth of photographs by Chuck Stewart and Francis Wolff.

"Brown’s solos, which marry the technical mastery of Dizzy Gillespie, the melodic flow and big sound of Fats Navarro, and a determined optimism all Brown’s own, became touchstones for a generation of young trumpeters; but Roach’s contributions are equally important and made a similar impact." - Bob Blumenthal, liner notes
