The event creator says
MAX ROACH AND THE ART OF EMANCIPATION

Max Roach was a pioneer percussionist, widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz drummers in history. A master of many forms, his inspired playing galvanized others to offer their greatest gifts, as well. His long career offered no compromise, and his work in the 1960's, directly addressing the heated racial inequality in America, remains an electrifying statement.

As a society, how far have we moved in coming to terms with everyday inequality? How can Roach's music help us navigate a way forward towards difficult and honest conversations -- without merely accommodating a sublimated prejudice and discrimination? As we recognize the current emotionally charged environment all around us, how can we convene to begin to mend what is broken, putting our unease behind us, and opening up to curative possibilities?

As part of the popular Views and Brews series (KUT radio), at the historic Cactus Cafe, we will engage in a spirited discussion about Max Roach, his music, and his legacy -- and we will enjoy superlative live music with some of Austin's most well-respected musicians. Tuesday evening, 24 March @ 7:00.

Featuring:
Brannen Temple, drums
Shelley Carrol, saxophone
Ephraim Owens, trumpet
Roscoe Beck, bass
Red Young, piano
Rabbi Neil Blumofe in conversation with KUT's Rebecca McInroy
