About the album
In the early sixties, Swiss audiences desperately wanted to hear the bebop hero Max Roach and his magnificent energy, always invigorating his music mates and truly galvanizing the band. After just a few bars, the listeners were flabbergasted, watching and listening to these young virtuosos seemingly appearing out of nowhere. And the audience paid the quintet a real triumph on that night of February 2, 1960 in Lausanne.
The first part of the legendary concert of the Max Roach Quintet has never been released before and is another unique document of the Swiss Radio Days Jazz Series.
