Classic Max Roach featuring lots of Max's tasty drum solos.  Max was one of the first to play musical drum solos, prior to that the standard drum solo sounded like a bunch of drums thrown down a flight of steps. Especially interesting is the opening cut which is a drum solo in 3/4.

Max Roach - drums Freddie Hubbard - trumpet (tracks 2, 4, & 6) Roland Alexander - soprano saxophone (track 4) James Spaulding - alto saxophone (tracks 2, 4 & 6) Ronnie Mathews - piano (tracks 2, 4 & 6) Jymie Merritt - bass (tracks 2, 4 & 6)
