Roy Haynes is a legend. According to Pat Metheny he is "the father of modern drumming". In the course of his career of over sixty years Haynes has worked with Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltraine, Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz and many others.
Currently Roy Haynes leads his own Grammy nominated band, a quartet completed by Marcus Strictland on Tenor and soprano sax, Martin Bejerano on piano and John Sullivan on acoustic bass.
Despite Haynes is eighty years old anno 2005, he still has swing, style and boundless energy which is truly inspiring!
