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.
