Legendary jazz drummer Max Roach has left us. He was 83.

Here’s a classic experimental piece he did in 1977, performing an improvisational drum solo over Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

“Jazz is a very democratic musical form. It comes out of a communal experience. We take our respective instruments and collectively create a thing of beauty.”
Max Roach
