Roach invited the . White Singers to accompany him along with tenor saxophonist Billy Harper's heart-wrenched solos. Listeners who aren't fans of gospel might not enjoy songs such as "Garden of Prayer" and "Troubled Waters," but make no mistake, this is a jazz album

Studio album by Max Roach with the . Motherless Child" (Traditional) - 7:21.

Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" – often referred to as the Black national anthem – is a song written as a poem by James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938) in 1900 and set to music by his brother John Rosamond Johnson (1873–1954) in 1905. Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" was publicly performed first as a poem as part of a celebration of Abraham Lincoln's birthday by Johnson's brother John.

After bringing on the . White Singers, they proceed to explore old-time spirituals with a depth of passion and artistry that is stunning. Ruby McClure's profoundly emotive vocals are accompanied by Wood's Arco bass work and underscored by Roach's sensitive drumming on a stirring rendition of "Motherless Child. Roach followed up the politically-charged Freedom Now Suite with another classic in 1961's Percussion Bitter Sweet, which featured such stellar sidemen as trumpeter Booker Little, alto saxophonist Eric Dolphy, trombonist Julian Priester, tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Art Davis and singer Abbey Lincoln, who contributed emotionally stirring vocals on "Mendacity. Roach's 1965 classic Drums Unlimited included three unaccompanied drumming showcases in "For Big Sid," "The Drum Also Waltzes" and the dramatic title track.

We have come over a way that with tears has been watered We have come, treading our path thro’ the blood of the slaughtered, Out from the gloomy past, till now we stand at last Where the white gleam of our.

Max Roach was long a shining survivor, one of the last giants from the birth of bebop. He and Kenny Clarke instigated a revolution in jazz drumming that persisted for decades; instead of the swing approach of spelling out the pulse with the bass drum, Roach shifted the emphasis to the ride cymbal. The result was a lighter, far more flexible texture, giving drummers more freedom to explore the possibilities of their drum kits and drop random "bombs" on the snare drum, while allowing bop virtuosos on the front lines to play at faster speeds.
