    I remember going to see Max at The Jazzfest in ATL, it had to have been about 1996. He did this amazing solo, all he had was snare, not a really large snare like ?love, a smaller on. With that and a High-hat symbal he beat out the illest drum solo I ever experienced. I was stunned and wish I knew more about the technical side of the drum. Max was 71 at the time I believe, what a great talent to be so co-ordinated still. I can only hope to be able to be so proficient with time. R.I.P
