Max Roach – Deeds, Not Words

Out of stock


Special vinyl reissue of Max Roach’s 1958 album Deeds, Not Words which finds the jazz great blurring the boundaries of hard bop. Produced by Orrin Keepnews, the fine 8-song documents the beginnings of Roach’s association with the great young trumpeter Booker Little and is innovative in its use of Ray Draper’s tuba as a melody instrument. Tenor saxophonist George Coleman and bassist Art Davis round out the excellent quintet. The Riverside date is highlighted by the popular jazz standard “You Stepped Out of a Dream,” the Sammy Cahn/Jule Styne penned “It’s You or No One” and the unaccompanied Roach drum showcase “Conversation.”
