Default Re: Roy Haynes

Roy's changing on the album Anthony posted a clip from changed my approach to drumming forever. That track, in particular.

I was lucky enough to see Roy a couple years ago with his Fountain Of Youth band at the Detroit Jazz Festival. It is IMPOSSIBLE to believe he's in his late 80s now.

I get to see Roy with his band again in a couple months as part of the DSO's jazz series. Can't wait to hear him inside the beautiful acoustics of Orchestra Hall.
