I love those Haynes and Rollins clips. Wow. It just blows my mind what musical experiences those cats have had. I mean, recalling a session from 1948. That's like 20 years before I was f***ing BORN. And they were making historic music. And hanging around now, talking about it. And they're still sharp, remembering those dates. Especially Haynes. He sounds like a young man.
I wish there was still that whole buzzing scene like there was back then .....everyone swapping gigs and supporting each other
just doesn't happen much today
