Joe Chambers
Iridium Jazz Club, located at 1650 Broadway (at 51st Street) is proud to present its' tribute to the legendary Percussionist, Drummer and Composer, Max Roach; Thursday June 5th through Sunday June 8th 2008, with two shows nightly at 8:30 PM and 10:30 PM. Saturday features a very special Percussionist who had a special relationship with Max Roach, being a charter member of Max's all percussion ensemble “M'Boom Re-Percussion", formed in 1970, this dynamic Percussionist contributed many seminal compositions and arrangements to the ensembles repertoire, including the following recordings: “Gazelle Suite" and “Jihad es Mort", M'Boom Re-Percussion on RVC, rvj6001; “Caravanseri" , and an Arrangement of “Epistrophy", M'Boom on Columbia Records, jc34766; “Come Back To Me". M'Boom “Live at S.O.B.' s on Mesa Blue Moon, 79182.

On June 7, 2008 the former members of the Max Roachs' Ensembles will have to mind their 'P's and Q's' when performing, because the Drummer leading this band will be very much following in the footsteps of his mentor Max Roach, and keeping those Traditions alive. The band members will have to 'stand up and be counted' because the leader of this band has been one of the most recorded drummers, ever, on the Blue Note label. He is a Composer and Arranger, with a number of recordings out on the market today. As a Band leader his latest recording is entitled “The Outlaw" on the Savant Label. This talented Composer, Arranger and Band leader has achieved the respect of his peers throughout the music industry as well as and is a Music Professor, Jazz Historian and Educator as well. This very stellar and unparallel talented percussionist is none other than the Great Mr. Joe Chambers. Reservations are recommended! (212) 582-2121



“If a Percussionist wanted someone to model a career after, then, as far as I am concerned Max Roach is that person. Max taught me, and I am still learning how to be in this business, Even though he is no longer here..."
