  • Max Roach's masterpiece "We Insist!" from 1960 is a suite that refers to the civil rights movement and the struggle of the black population for equality in the USA and unfortunately has lost very little of its relevance to this day. Roach wrote the pieces with the poet Oscar Brown Jr. in 1959 with the intention of having them performed in 1963 to mark the centenary of the Emancipation Proclamation

    With the support of the wonderful Abbey Lincoln as singer as well as Booker Littler, Julian Priester, Coleman Hawkins, Olatunji and other great artists, "We Insist!" became a truly brilliant album, which since then has been considered an incomparable masterpiece of the time and beyond.

    Classic of the genre reissued. Limited audiophile edition. DMM Mastering
