Max was so very supportive of the Arts in general... I remember him coming to see several plays I directed and performed in at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, including Laurence Holder's MONK!

A great musician but a greater man. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him in his later years when he use to attend Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.
