Revisiting: Max Roach

Listen to Samples of this album

With the passing of jazz great Max Roach 2 weeks ago, I was reminded of the pure genius, sass, and relevance of hs work. Roach, a composer and drummer raised in Brooklyn, played with the greats including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, and Duke Ellington (Money Jungle!) and that only scratches the surface. We Insist! Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite , was an oder to the 100th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, an album recorded amongst the racial and political backdrop of 1960s America, and it was this album that garnered Roach notoriety in the music industry. Enjoy a great.
