It´s interesting how Sonny Rollins´ tenure with BN was quite short. Just one year I think.  This Album seems to have been overlooked. It´s a good solid hard bop Album, but I think that from 1956 his Prestige Albums "Tenor Madness" and "Saxophone Collossus" got more Attention. 

I think, that this BN "Vol. 1" was recorded shortly after Clifford Brown´s and Richie Powell´s death, so Maybe it was quite hard for Rollins and Roach to continue…..

Beautiful album which I've known for many decades.

And now, something I've never heard before!

Listened to portions of six Bethlehem cds, two from Verse, and four from Solid Records Japan, three titles in duplicate and decided which to keep and which go on the sales pile. They were the Bethlehems from Dexter Gordon, Nina Simone and Mal Waldron.

Then listened to this very nice Evidence cd:

Bobby Hutcherson "Farewell Keystone"

Prime Tubby. Sensational technical command by this stage and no sign yet of the health-induced decline of later years.

Unlike some recently discovered live material, this studio date has superb sound.

It should be - it was a planned Fontana studio recording release, until ‘The Orchestra’ was put out to mark a change of direction and - I guess - hopes for a more popular market (MOR, the ‘Studio 2’ set etc.).

I haven’t heard this one yet - saving myself for the 11LP set, whenever that one surfaces..
