Gatefold 180 gram vinyl reissue, licensed through Universal. Originally released in 1961. "Percussion Bitter Sweet was done over a series of dates in August 1961 and featured Max with his regular band. Trumpeter and virtuoso player, Booker Little was only two months away from his untimely passing at 23 from uremia (a kidney ailment), and he is inspired on this date as are tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, trombonist Julian Priester, and especially multi-instrumentalist Eric Dolphy. Mal Waldron is on piano with the excellent Art Davis on bass and the band is augmented by several percussionists on some tracks, including the legendary 'Patato' Valdes. There are two passionate vocals by Abbey Lincoln added to the mix. All the compositions and arrangements are by Mr. Roach." -- Vancouver Jazz
