Ali Jackson Celebrates Max Roach at Jazz at Lincoln Center

Monday, August 24, 2015 - 6:00pm

To say Max Roach was a bebop pioneer, or a paramount innovator of the drums, or a prominent social activist would be accurate. Yet these labels fall short of this American icon’s totality. One drummer who not only understands this idea, but has benefitted from Roach single-handedly changing the perception of what it means to be a drummer, is composer, arranger, and percussion wizard Ali Jackson. After crossing paths with Roach at age 12, Jackson was forever impacted, and the two would enjoy a formative student-teacher connection.

Tootie Heath at 80! Life at Jazz at Lincoln Center

Monday, August 17, 2015 - 6:00pm

Jazz icon Tootie Heath turned 80 on May 31st, and we’re honored to help him celebrate the occasion!

Heath, who first recorded in the 1950s with John Coltrane, recorded as a leader for over 50 years, and performed alongside such artists as Dexter Gordon, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, and countless others. Incredibly, popular opinion suggests that the drummer sounds better than ever, entering his eighth decade.
