Artist Spotlight Video Series #4: Roy Haynes

Roy Haynes is a jazz legend of the first order. In a career spanning 7 decades, Roy has helped to write the story of modern jazz, drumming with Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and just about everyone else.

Chick’s groundbreaking 1968 album Now He Sings, Now He Sobs was his first encounter with Roy, and they’ve been working steadily ever since, right through the 2010 tour of the Freedom Band.

  2. Fascinating man, indeed! You mean to say that he has stayed so young by the virtue of duplication alone and kind of using Music as the vendor for duplication?

  3. I’ve only met Roy Haynes once briefly, backstage after Sonny Rollins’ 50th Anniversary Concert at Carnegie Hall. The room was filled with jazz legends, but Roy Haynes was clearly the coolest guy in the room. Long live Roy Haynes!
