In 1966, with his album Drums Unlimited (which includes several tracks that are entirely drum solos) he demonstrated that drums can be a solo instrument able to play theme, variations, and rhythmically cohesive phrases. Roach described his approach to music as \"the creation of organized sound.\" Roach's style has been a big influence on several jazz and rock drummers, most notably Joe Morello, Tony Williams Peter Erskine, Billy Cobham, Ginger Baker, and Mitch Mitchell. The track \"The Drum Also Waltzes\" was often quoted by John Bonham in his Moby Dick drum solo and revisited by other drummers, including Neil Peart and Steve Smith. Bill Bruford performed a cover of the track on the 1985 album Flags.
In late 2003, Papa Roach wrote and recorded their third album with the working title Dancing In the Ashes, but released as Getting Away with Murder. The band worked with well-recognized producer Howard Benson. After completion, the band filmed a music video for the title track, \"Getting Away with Murder\", and went on a small summer club tour to warm-up for the tours that would follow. The album introduced a different approach for the band, becoming their first album not to feature the nu metal style of their previous albums. It was also the band's first album not to feature rapping. Getting Away with Murder outsold Lovehatetragedy, mainly due to the popularity of the album's second single, \"Scars\". To date, the album has sold over one million copies and has been certified Platinum. On November 9, 2004, the band released their fifth EP, Rolling Stone Original, an EP only available digitally. On November 22, 2005 they released their first live album, Papa Roach: Live & Murderous in Chicago.
\"The bands that I like are usually bands that sound like an '87 sort of death metal band. Unfortunately. I hate to be negative. But I like a lot of other music. I like a lot of different rock. I'm more open when it comes to that. But when it comes to extreme metal I sort of cap it at '93 and '94. After that, everything else is just shit.\"
Since Clifford Brown's unexpected and sudden death following a 1956 car crash, collectors have sought any previously unknown recordings to add to the already sizable legacy left by a trumpet genius who didn't reach his 26th birthday. The Last Concert was broadcast live just eight days prior to his passing, recorded by a listener. Brown, along with co-leader Max Roach on drums, tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins, pianist Richie Powell (who died in the accident with Brown), and bassist George Morrow, were in high spirits as they played in the Continental Restaurant in Norfolk, Virginia. The show starts off with Brown's only known interpretation of \"Just One of Those Things,\" a lengthy workout showcasing Brown, Rollins, and Powell. The trumpeter's moving solo in \"You Go to My Head\" is also a highlight. A boisterous \"I Get a Kick Out of You\" (clocking in at 24:59) concludes this final show. Although there are some minor problems with the source material, including sporadic tape drop-outs and incomplete performances (the latter due to the fact that some of them run as long as 25 minutes, which would make it tough to judge when to change a tape reel), the recording quality is surprisingly good, even if it was made by someone in the audience. The remaining tracks on disc two come from a 1955 appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival, and may exist in better shape within the holdings of the Library of Congress, which has lots of live jazz originally broadcast behind the Iron Curtain by Voice of America. Harold Land is the tenor saxophonist on this occasion, with the remaining musicians the same. Brown and Land ignite fireworks with the trumpeter's still powerful \"Daahoud.\" Powell's \"Jacqui\" demonstrates his potential as a composer. The final track features Brown sitting in with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Gerry Mulligan, and Chet Baker in a rousing \"Tea for Two\" that unfortunately fades prior to completion, due to the tape running out. The sound flaws on this set are mainly from the rowdy audience, as the instruments are fairly distinct. 781b155fdc
