About Max Roach Centennial
Few drummers—if any—had as profound an impact on the evolution of jazz as Max Roach. As an artist, Roach’s dynamic playing powered a career that spanned from the dawn of bebop to free improvisation and beyond; and as an activist he created deeply felt music and used his platform to speak out for civil rights.
Join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as we celebrate this groundbreaking artist and American icon. Expect a transformative evening featuring new and hard-swinging arrangements of seminal works like We Insist!, Max Roach + 4, and Deeds, Not Words.
