Max Roach – We Insist! (White Vinyl)

Out of stock


What our staff has to say: “‘No, don’t splice. When it’s all perfect, especially in a piece like this, there’s something very wrong.’ -Coleman Hawkins on the recording of We Insist!” – Cleo

Roach vowed after it’s release that he would never again play music that is not socially relevant and told Down Beat magazine, “We American jazz musicians of African descent have proved beyond all doubt that we’re master musicians of our instruments. Now what we have to do is employ our skill to tell the dramatic story of our people and what we’ve been through.” The album inspired Roach to broaden his scope as a composer and collaborate with choreographers, filmmakers, and playwrights. The LP includes extraordinary liner notes written by Hentoff himself, giving a context and insight that adds to the experience of hearing these magnificent performances.
