Vale Max Roach

In other tragic news, fluent, lyrical, jazz drum virtuoso and bebop pioneer Max Roach died yesterday at the age of 83. The good news is that Columbia University’s WKCR is commemorating his life by broadcasting his complete opus, or thereabouts, over the next several days, 24 hours a day, interspersed with the most arcane commentary by the legendary Phil Schapp and other erudite presenters. And you don’t have to live in NY to listen (!
