Roger Humphries – “Pass it On”- is a 1 hour documentary on the legendary jazz drummer and music educator from Pittsburgh. It showcases Roger’s formidable talents as a musician, musical group leader, and skillful teacher; and his inspirational dedication to family, students, colleagues, and community.
Roger is known and respected among musicians and jazz fans worldwide. “Discovered” by artists in the family when he was only three years old, at four Rodger was sitting in with the Tab Smith Big Band, where his uncle, Frank Humphries, played.
At 14, Rodger was playing professionally, and by 16 led his own group at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Music Hall. He has played, toured, and recorded for more than 50 years with such jazz greats as Ray Charles and Horace Silver, and his own RH Factor Quartet and Roger Humphries Big Band. Just as important as his discography of more than 20 albums, is his personal legacy. While his talent has taken him around the world, he has always maintained his connections to family and Pittsburgh, finding his deepest satisfaction in the successes of his students. Called “Dad” by many in his bands, Roger’s story is told in the words of those younger former students as well as through interviews with family, friends, and other professional musicians … all artfully interwoven with Mr. Humphrey’s performance footage, both new and old, from classroom to concert hall.
