Max Roach With The Boston Percussion Ensemble

LP (Item 77303) Mercury, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

One of Max's most experimental albums from the 50s – a set of serious compositional works performed in conjunction with the Boston Percussion Ensemble. The feel is very much in the mode of 20th century classical work, such as the recordings in the 60s by the Percussions Of Strasbourg – with a wide variety of percussion instruments used on the set, and Roach's drums at the center. Titles include "The Music Inn Suite", "Evolution", and "Variations On A Familiar Theme" – all written by Harold Farberman, who directs the group. (Blue label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some staining & wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Third Cup
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+

Blue Note, 1965/1979. Near Mint-
A great slice from Jackie McLean's rare unissued 60s sessions for Blue Note – a rollingly soulful session that stands in stark contrast to some of his more modern sides of the time!
