Max Roach

From his early work with the beboppers to the great band he co-led with Clifford Brown, to his civil right music, to recordings with avant gardists to his percussion ensemble and solo drums, Jazz From Blue Lake touched on the music of Max Roach last evening. Jazz From Blue Lake is found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand

Max was a big hero of mine for the longest. Then I learned about some less than,uh..., "ideal" personal traits. Then I grew up, eventually, and accept him as a flawed person, but nevertheless a great man. I don't think you understand jazz without understanding Max Roach, he's one of those guys. He's somebody whose drumming left no room for ambiguity. About anything.
