'Love Is A Many Splendored Thing', by Clifford Brown and Max Roach

Recorded mere months before Clifford Brown died in a car crash, 1956’s ‘At Basin Street' finds the revered trumpeter in top form, co-leading an ensemble with drummer Max Roach that included saxophonist Sonny Rollins (his only performance with this quintet) and pianist Richie Powell (Bud Powell's brother, who was also killed in the accident). Morbid associations aside, this record is a vibrant hard-bop outing with Brown's amazingly agile horn lines always commanding attention even when compared to Rollins's robust sax work.
