Default Re: Roy Haynes

Can anyone recommend a really great album that Roy plays on? I know he's done ALOT of recording and even did some stuff with Coltrane (I'm going to deffo check that out), but is there anything really special?
I've only seen a few vids of Mr Haynes and listened to the stuff on the site and from what limited stuff I've heard is that he truly is a genius. He has a wicked sense of humour too. I really want to see him live sometime.
The man's 80 something and still drumming large - a true inspiration.
