In 1970, iconic drummer and activist Max Roach organized the collective known as M’Boom; a unique unit of percussionists on marimba, xylophone, tympani, vibes, bells, gongs, drum sets, and even a musical saw. For one night only, original M’Boom member Joe Chambers gathers three of today’s best percussionists—Ray Mantilla, Warren I. Smith, and Bobby Sanabria, along with the 16-piece Moving Pictures Orchestra and vocalist Mavis Swan Poole—for a lively performance.
