Jazz in 3/4 Time

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow

With tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins becoming a stronger soloist month by month he was arguably the top tenor in jazz at the time and veteran trumpeter Kenny Dorham in prime form, Roach was able to stretch himself; the obscure pianist Billy Wallace and bassist George Morrow completed the group. On this LP, Roach explores six songs in waltz time, an innovation for the period predating Dave Brubeck's recording of "Take Five" by two years.

These excellent performances show that jazz does not always have to be in 4/4 time in order to swing.
