Max Roach's hommage to Jo Jones - the hi-hat tribute

Michael Steinman's heartfelt, thought-provoking and accurately descriptive writing on Papa Jo Jones, and specially the last picture he included, showing the poignant moment when Max Roach passes by and respectfully stares at Jo’s coffin, reminded me of a youtube video I had seen several months ago.

On it, Max Roach plays his own hommage to Jo Jones' habilities with the hi-hat. At the end, Papa Jo comes in the stage just to receive a standing ovation.
