Clifford Brown & Max Roach is a 1955 album by influential jazz musicians Clifford Brown and Max Roach as part of the Clifford Brown and Max Roach Quintet, described by The New York Times as “perhaps the definitive bop group until Mr. Brown’s fatal automobile accident in 1956”. The album was critically well received and includes several notable tracks, including two that have since become jazz standards. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. It is included in Jazz: A Critic’s Guide to the 100 Most Important Recordings at #34, where it is described by New York Times jazz critic Ben Ratliff as “one of the strongest studio albums up to that time”.
