    One of my favorite recordings is Max Roach and the Legendary Hassan (on piano) with Art Davis on bass. It's a gem. I think it's from the mid 60s.

    This evening I heard an old interview he did in the 80s. The interviewer had played a tune from the 50's and it was Max with Dizzy and Charlie Parker. IT was an amazing sound!
    Max said that he remembered the reviews of the above groups performance being bad. He said, 'Yeah we had a long ways to go' and then chuckled. I was amazed by his technical prowess AND his humility. He was making bebop small group history and he saw room for improvement
    Sincerely,
