From cover: This is Brown-Roach, Inc. (the Clifford Brown-Max Roach Quintet of 1955), led by its tenor saxophonist, Sonny Rollins. Coming on the heels of "Worktime" (OJC-007), it helped to further Sonny's then-growing reputation. He had already established himself with musicians and now the jazz public was catching on. This set is an exceptional blend of rare material from the standard area -- "Kiss and Run," "I Feel a Song Coming On," "Count Your Blessings"--And two Rollins originals -- "Valse Hot" and "Pent-Up House." On the later, Sonny and Brownie combine in one of the most brilliant interactions in the recorded annals of jazz

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the most fascinating chapters of film history is that of the so-called "race films" that flourished in the 1920s -'40s. Unlike the "black cast" films produced within the Hollywood studio system, these films not only starred African Americans but were funded, written, produced, edited, distributed, and often exhibited by people of color. Entrepreneurial filmmakers built an industry apart from the Hollywood establishment, cultivating visual and narrative styles that were uniquely their own
