Max Roach & Archie Shepp
The Long March
Hatology 2-640

Max Roach – drums
Archie Shepp – tenor saxophone

Recorded in concert at Willisau Jazzfestival on August 30th, 1979, two significant artists of different generations share a creative impetus of social and political concern, find a common ground of sound, and improvise a music of conscience and consequence that transcends time and place and comments on the human condition – an eternal struggle between intolerance and love. The song (and its message) remains the same. --Art Lange

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
