Percussion Bitter Sweet !!

To me, Max Roach is up there with only a handful of others who
can be called the greatest Jazz musicians who ever lived. Most 
mistakenly think of him as just a talented drummer; His genius
extended far beyond that. Aside from also being an experimental
percussionist, he was a brilliant composer/ writer, and was very
active in the civil rights movements. I can't say enough about this
man, so go read about him if you're interested.
