Another piece of history crumbles away

Author: Helen



While the noise is all Elvis, Elvis, Elvis at the moment, Max Roach has quietly slipped his sticks into his sticks bag and slipped away.

Learned from that crazy cat Sterne.

    Hard to believe we’ve lost Alice Coltrane, Andrew Hill and Max Roach in the past eight months. On the other hand, given the tragically short lives of many of the musicians Coltrane, Hill and Roach played with (and, in Coltrane’s case, were married to), it’s somehow less sad to be farewelling somebody who was in his eighties. Still bloody sad, tho. Roach was one of the greats.
