5.0 out of 5 stars listeners may never tire of hearing this, 7 Aug. 2005

(REAL NAME)   
An all time classic album from Max and his quintet of Charles Tolliver(tp)Gary Bartz(as)Stanley Cowell(p) and Jymie Merritt(b).
Roach's sound can be a bit hit or miss but this offering really nails it,every track is worthy with Stanley Cowells 'Effi' and 'Equipoise' being particular standouts (you can perhaps hear where Bill Lee and Bobby Watson got their inspirations for 'John Coltrane' and 'Time will tell').
Tolliver and Bartz make a formidable front line and Andy Bey delivers some spiritual musings on the title track.
Brilliant Jazz music

5.0 out of 5 stars The first jazz record I bought, 23 Jan. 2009
By 
Mr. Edward J. Forsyth (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
I heard a track from this album on WFMU and was surprised to find myself enjoying it since I've never really liked jazz before. Well, this record changed that and since then I've started listening to a lot more.

The signature of this album is the sort of 'battle' if you like that goes on between the trumpet and the saxophone. I've listened to it many times, and each time you get deeper and deeper into it.

If you're not sure about giving jazz a go, I think this is a good start because I found stuff like Miles Davis to be a lot to take in for a newcomer like me, whereas this was accessible without being commerical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and passionate music from Max Roach in 1968., 17 Feb. 2015

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This excellent but little-known quintet album by the great drummer Max Roach(1924-2007) was recorded in June/July, 1968 with Gary Bartz(alto sax); Charles Tolliver(trumpet); Stanley Cowell(piano); Jymie Merritt(bass) and, on the title-track, Andy Bey(vocal).
The music is inventive hard bop with impressive solos and the six memorable tracks feature three Cowell originals and one each from Bartz, Roach & Merritt.
The uplifting and passionate music on this CD deserves to be more widely heard.

BTW ~ 'Members, Don't Git Weary' can also be found together with another obscure Max Roach ATLANTIC album 'Lift Every Voice And Sing' on COLLECTABLES COL-CD-7828
