Jazz World Mourns Loss of Max Roach
Legendary jazz percussionist Max Roach is dead at 83. Having been associated with greats such as Duke Ellington and Dizzie Gillespie, the self-taught musician wowed audiences throughout the world.
When I was busy worshipping jazz trumpet players in college, I didn't pay too much attention to the non-trumpeters with a few exceptions. Max Roach was one of them. When I was soaking up Clifford's work, you just couldn't help being as blown away by the drumming as you'd be by anything Clifford did.

Currently listening: Clifford Brown/Max Roach, "If I Love Again"
