The Clifford Brown Max Roach Quintet played at the Rouge Lounge in Detroit from June 5, 1956 through June 10,1956. Though I do not recall the specific date, I went to hear that group during that stay at the Rouge Lounge. I was shocked when I learned that Clifford Brown died in an automobile accident  on June 26, 1956.

IIRC, the engagement that Clifford, Richie Powell et al. were driving to was at Chicago's Modern Jazz Room. I was all het up to go -- that required some planning because I was underage and an adult (probably my Dad) would have to accompany me -- but then came the news.

I was also very slightly underage, but had a fake ID that I used to get in to the Rouge Lounge. Also used the fake ID to get in to hear jazz at a few other clubs during that same general time period.

I still remember hearing "Meeting of the Spirits" for the first time during my freshman year of college, stunning.  Saw them at the Spectrum in Philly in 1973, where they blew Zappa's incredibly talented MOI group (Duke, Ponty, Ruth Underwood, etc.) off the stage.   Opening act IIRC was John Hammond Jr.  playing solo acoustic guitar.

A wonderful album, I think it was actually the first Clifford Brown/Max Roach I ever heard, decades ago. Great compositions by Richie Powell !

"five stars" especially for the participation of Sam Jones and my favourite drummer Philly Joe Jones. This is one of the greatest Bud Powell albums after 1953. All compositions by him, and they are great compositions. John´s Abbey became a signature tune during Bud´s years in Paris and after his comeback to the states. He never failed when he played it. And he kept "Monopoly" in his song book.

And "Buster Rides Again" is a fantastic latin tune with the great Philly J.J. doing an extended drum solo.

New arrival. I didn't realise before Final Solution on this Japanese CD was a studio recording and not the live track extra from the European CD and the Japanese Biscuits.
