Charlie Rouse (April 6, 1924 – November 30, 1988) was an American hard bop tenor saxophonist and flautist. His career is marked by his collaboration with Thelonious Monk, which lasted for more than ten years. Rouse was born in Washington, DC in 1924. At first he worked with the clarinet, before turning to the saxophone.

I have liked Charlie Rouse’s tenor ever since I first noted him co-leading with Sahib Shihab on the rarest of rare Soul Mates album from 1988 – probably one of my most-played CDs as I can’t seem to find it for love nor money on vinyl. I have been chasing it for some time, but it seems to inhabit a price bracket much higher than its peers.

The sound on the Classic Records reissue is superb. It's full, big sound, natural sounding. Never have heard the original but can't imagine it sounding a lot better than this. This is a wonderful slice of a magical moment in time. The mood is perfect, the playing is effortless and it's not too bebop or hardbop even (no scales or virtuoso business). It hits more in the lyrical cool/modal pocket for me. I really love this lp, near perfect.
