R.I.P. Max Roach

This seriously makes me sad. So long, Max Max. Until we come around again.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Drummer Max Roach, who helped revolutionize jazz by creating the fast-paced bebop style along with players like Charlie Parker,Dizzy Gillespie and Clifford Brown, has died at age 83, Blue Note Records said on Thursday.

He knew how to touch a konagod nerve.

Enjoy a little Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln as we seque into a weekend...
