Description

Legendary drummer Roy Haynes has been the pulse of jazz percussion for more than sixty years and has lent his unflagging energy and marvelous invention to thousands of performances and recordings by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Lester Young, Thelonious Monk, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Ella Fitzgerald and Charlie Parker. In fact, Haynes was the drummer in Parker’s group on Birdland’s opening night, December 15th, 1949. Fittingly, this engagement is the cornerstone of Birdland’s 60th Anniversary celebration.
