Fly By Night 286: Roacha-Cha Blakebeats

Steve Fly dips into his wax collection and constructs a hanging garden of jazz drum delights featuring Art Blakey and Max Roach. Featuring songs by Thelonious Monk, Blakey’s Jazz Messangers, and Roach, the Fly spins bare back to back rhythms of the Afro-jazz bop persuasion. Special thanks to John Sinclair.
