About Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra: The Legacy of Max Roach

Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (SJMO) presents an evening celebrating the legacy of Max Roach. Inspired by Chick Web, Sonny Greer, Jo Jones, and the innovations of Kenny Clarke, during the 1940s Max Roach revolutionized the world of modern drum-set playing. He developed a swing and cymbal technique with dynamic expression that became the template for the creative imagination and technical mastery required to move modern jazz forward. With songs such as “Four-X,” “Cou-Manchi-Cou,” and “Liberté,” the SJMO honors the legacy of Max Roach, who would have turned 100 in January 2024. This concert features the small ensemble.
