We celebrate the birthday of the late jazz drummer, Max Roach. From his first recordings with Coleman Hawkins to his part in re-defining jazz drummer during his years with Carlie Parker. We also hear from his early 60's political recordings with his then wife, Abbey Lincoln and later duets with Dizzy Gillespie.
