Re: Max Roach
Max played with Charley Parker on and off until Parker died in 1955. Max played with Clifford Brown in 1954 till he died in 1956. In just a little more than a years time, Max Roach saw the death of two great Jazz masters that he knew personally and played with. How did this effect him? Did he ever speak of this tragedy?
