John Robinson presents ‘Last Stop On The 4 Train’ Part 2 Video (Max Roach)
Last Stop on the 4 Train unfolds through conversations and stories led by the three music gurus in their own right as they visit the grave sites of these Masters. Thomas Simmons, John Robinson and T.C. III celebrate the greats and share invaluable music history with a genuine enthusiasm that proves infectious.
This film is an ode to the power of music folklore as told by lovers of music and culture. Rooted in this love, it aims to bridge the gap between the now multiple generations of hip hop and the jazz music interlaced through many of their classic tracks. By sharing the accomplishments and catalogs of key virtuosos, Last Stop on the 4 Train highlights cross-genre commonalities of the music journey as a whole.
Today, enjoy part 2 of the 4 part series, which highlights the work and legacy of drummer, Max Roach. John Robinson, Simmons and T.C. III discuss Max Roach’s work with legendary saxophone player, Sonny Rollins, alongside Roach’s work with Kenny Clarke, Clifford Brown and others.
For those in Atlanta, you can catch an early sneak peek of the entire documentary this Sunday at Studio 281. John Robinson, Thomas Simmons and T.C. III will be in attendance for a Q&A session. For more info check out the Facebook event page.
