Here’s a great 1959 recording of Max Roach with the Turrentine brothers and as mentioned below in the description, without a piano player to be found. Very interesting approach and in a time where there were so many great jazz pianist available to fill in. Nevertheless, it worked just great as Julian Priester (Trombone) and Bob Boswell (Bass) made up for the missing intricate sounds. Max Roach was in the middle of a tremendous album recording streak at the time, with 9 recordings in 1958, 5 including this one in 1959 and 3 more in 1960. One must note, these recordings are as a band leader, he participated and was part of several other recordings in this three year period, incredible! Max was a very hard working passionate man and never failed to deliver! “Quiet As It’s Kept” is a highly innovative album with quite a bit of “coolness” behind it. I real gem that everyone should own, great stuff!!

About the album:

This is an interesting 1959 date with Max Roach leading a piano-less quintet.

After searching across the web for the best jazz station, I found Jazz Con Class Radio. Hands down, the best jazz music anywhere. Why you ask? The focus on the best jazz music ever recorded, combined with the depth of artists and tracks played. I have heard so many tracks that I have never heard before, it’s mind blowing what Jazz Con Class Radio plays that other stations don’t. Mr. Reyes, your station is a national artistic treasure!

Hi José Reyes,
I have been listening to your radio broadcasting for some time and I can assure you without a doubt that your jazz program is the best on the entire network. I hope you could keep it for a long time without advertising and maintaining the quality that characterizes you. My girlfriend and I heard you from Basque Country in Spain with great pleasure for our ears and our senses. That's why we congratulate you and thank you!
