Max Roach: A Great Drummer Looks Back at Influences (1958)

SKF NOTE: One of my favorite Down Beat issues. DB editor Don Gold includes several Max Roach insights on great jazz musicians like Thelonious Monk, Kenny Clarke, and Miles Davis. Max was 33-years old at the time. The cover art is by Peter Gourfain.

The underscored parts are mine, probably for research in preparation for my interview with Max or for some other drum article. I also underscore notable passages in books.

Finally, the Max Roach Zildjian and Gretsch ads are included in this Down Beat too.
