Notes

As usual with the remarkable Mosaic, this is a very high quality set.
The perfect packaging, extensive liner notes, carefully engineered sound, along with the quality of the documentation and researches done to assemble this, makes it a (unfortunately too hard to find) essential buy for any hard-bop amateur.
This set covers the late 50s period of Roach outing, after Brown's death, in a variety of sets ranging from a tribute to Parker, to the first session of the regretted Booker Little, to the incomparable Rich vs. Roach session - including such prestigious sidemen as Kenny Dorham, Gigi Gryce and George Coleman. To top it all, this includes almost one hour of previously unreleased cuts.
Dig it!
