Default Roy Haynes

Hey everyone. Sorry if there's another thread on Roy, but I couldn't find it.
I saw Mr. Haynes with his Fountain of Youth band at Birdland a few weeks ago. He was unbelievable. The whole group (Martin Beherana on Piano, David Wong on Bass and the incredible Jaleel Shaw on Alto) really blew me away but Roy was just amazing. He was hilarious, an excellent showman, and just such a great player. So much movement.
If any of you ever have a chance to see him play don't pass up the chance. One of the best shows of my life.
