About the Artist:

Roger Humphries was 3 1/2 years old when his family discovered his early drum talent. He began playing professionally at fourteen, and within two years, he led his group at Carnegie Music Hall. In 1964, Roger went to New York to join the Horace Silver Quintet. While with Silver, Roger recorded three albums: Song For My Father, Cape Verdean Blues, and Jody Grind, with Song for My Father taking its place as one of the most legendary albums of our time. Music critics rate Roger as one of the most exciting percussionists in the business.
