Max Roach Trio Featuring the Legendary Hasaan Ibn Max Roach Review
Atlantic Records released this amazing record in 1965, even though it was recorded in December of 1964. The album, as you may know is the only recording of Hasaan Ibn Ali that has ever been released. He’s a legend in modern jazz, however. This is record that has a classic feel to it, and knowing that fact makes this all the more intriguing. I heard Ali would go into obscurity after the making of this one. Regardless, the trio puts on a show, with Max Roach (drums), Hasaan Ibn Ali (piano), and Art Davis (bass). If you like jazz trios, this is a record that fits into the must hear, and buy. The drumming is perfect here, but it’s the bass and piano elements that get me each time.
Max Roach Trio Featuring the Legendary Hasaan Ibn is only $8.97 new here. However, it’s a steal used for $2.74 by clicking here. This is a must own classic piece of American Jazz history.
