There’s something about a little park in London being named after the excellent (and legendary) drummer Max Roach that makes me feel good.
I hope it inspires those who pass by and those who use the park.
Now, find some time to listen to some Max Roach…Perhaps hearing him playing alongside the wonderful Clifford Brown is a good start? Study in Brown, for example. I’d lend you my copy of the CD, but I’ve worn it out from too many listenings over the years.
