Sonny Rollins quintet with Kenny Dorham & Max Roah

recorded in Hackensack, New Jersey, october, 1956

Sonny Rollins, heard in his early prime, performs "I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face," "Kids Know" and a seven-song "Bird Medley" on this CD reissue of a Prestige LP. Actually Rollins is only on four of the tunes in the medley and not all of the songs have a close connection with Charlie Parker. Featured in a quintet with trumpeter Kenny Dorham, pianist Wade Legge, bassist George Morrow and drummer Max Roach, Rollins is in fine form although the hard bop music falls slightly short of being essential

All Music Guide

========= from the cover ==========

When Charlie Parker died, people who never had done anything in recognition of his great talent, suddenly rushed to the mourner's bench and delivered eulogies. This record is by musicians who knew him intimately, appreciated him tremendously during his lifetime and felt his loss far more acutely than any of the self-styled sufferers.

But this is no grand memorial. That was left by Bird himself and is added to daily in so many little (and big) ways. This is a simple tribute in the form of a medley composed of seven tunes that were recorded and, for the most part, played often by Parker.

The medley was chosen by Sonny Rollins, the most important saxophonist carrying on and enriching the Parker tradition. Sonny also chose the musicians to help him play the tribute. At the time, the five together embodied the Max Roach Quintet. Leader Roach and Kenny Dorham had played with Parker in his quintets and were well qualified to take part in the tribute. While Wade Legge and George Morrow never worked with Bird, their playing is in keeping with the tenets of the Parker tradition.

Oddly enough, the seven tunes are all from the post-1950 Parker repe-toire.

Sonny heralds the entire medley by echoing Bird's introduction to Parker's Mood. A piano introduction by Legge leads Rollins into I Remember You. The sequence consists of one chorus of melody, one of improvisation and a third in which exchanges with Roach ensue for the first half before Sonny takes it out. This format is followed on each number up to Star Eyes. Wade modulates into Melancholy Baby which is Kenny's vehicle and then takes Old Folks himself. Sonny returns for They Can't Take That Away From Me using the triple tounging that Bird employed on his recording. Kenny then plays a nostalgic Just Friends. Wade dons My Little Suede Shoes and then segues neatly into Star Eyes which is the only number in the medley to feature both horns. Sonny and Kenny have two choruses apiece, Wade one and there is one chorus each of Sonny with Max and Kenny with Max.

In addition to the medley, there are two other independent selections presented here.

Sonny's intriguing original in % time, Kids Know, gives everyone a chance to stretch out including Max who contributes one of his intellectual-emotional gems.

I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face from My Fair Lady is a Rollins solo except for a piano interlude by Legge.
