About

Max Roach is possibly the most influential drummer of all time (with the likes of Elvin Jones and Art Blakey in contention). He was a direct role model for Tony Allen, the co-creator of Afrobeat and Ginger Baker, the notorious rock-and-roller-turned-Afro-jazz drummer, as well as countless others. His story began with the advent of bebop, of which he was a pioneer, and he went on to play with essentially all the main actors of the epoch: Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Charles Mingus, Dinah Washinton, Eric Dolphy, Stan Getz, Billy Eckstine ... his list of collaborations reads like a hall of fame roster. Here, for his third visit to the French capital, he is joined by a stellar quartet that includes the Turrentine brothers and captured by the ever-present French director Jean-Christophe Averty.
