This single-album release is less valuable now that it has been succeeded by EmArcy's massive ten-CD set Brownie. Comprised mostly of alternate takes with a few previously unissued items, these tracks feature the classic Clifford Brown-Max Roach Quintet of 1954-56. Best is a "new" version of "I'll Remember April" that also features tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins and a fully restored "Jordu." But get the EmArcy "complete" set instead.
