In 1956 Sonny Rollins
used the Clifford Brown
Quintet (of which he was a member) as his sidemen for this Prestige set. The high points of this particularly strong hard bop set include "Valse Hot" (an early jazz waltz), a rapid rendition of "I Feel a Song Coming On," and Rollins
's classic "Pent-Up House." Trumpeter Brown
(heard on one of his final sessions) is in excellent form, as is the strong rhythm section and the young tenor-leader himself. This excellent music is also included as part of Rollins
's seven-CD box set for Prestige.
