Default Re: To da MAX!

Yeah, Max was the man. I think of all the drummers from the bebop era, Max was my favorite at expressing the really fast uptempo stuff. He just seemed to articulate his ideas so well, even at those breakneck speeds.

A funny story by Bill Cosby (himself a jazz drummer) and how Max "saved" him one night. http://youtu.be/1Zn-P0ZH3_M
