Drum Battle

Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones

A first?

Filmed during a live concert in the 1960s.

I wish I knew the circumstances or how these three giants happened to come together on one stage at one time. (It had to be a first.)

But there they are:

Max Roach – The drummer of choice for Charlie Parker and the Bebop Revolution
Art Blakey- Master drummer, master musician
Elvin Jones – The drums beneath the Coltrane explosion
