Max Roach – 1985


Max Roach –

Mom, Dad and I went up to UMass-Amherst to look at a college option for me. Well, Dad’s dearest friend Max Roach was a music professor there, so he showed us the lay of the land. And, then, he gave us a private concert.

Amazing! I knew Prof. Roach was a great drummer, but this was just special. My musical ears are used to melodies from various instruments, and he made one drum instrument reverberate all that was needed to appreciate a full spectrum of music – via just the drums! – Chris Stewart
