About

When Roy Haynes plays his drums, more than half a century of experience informs every thundering stroke. His unrelenting swing and quicksilver responsiveness have been pushing the beat of jazz forward since the early 1940s. Dubbed "one of the seven wonders of modern jazz" by Billboard, Roy Haynes salutes the late Charlie "Bird" Parker, the legendary alto saxophonist with whom Haynes played in the 1940s and '50s, when Parker and others were creating what came to be called bebop. In the Terrace Theater, alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett and bassist Christian McBride join the drummer for masterful tunes from Haynes's CD Birds of a Feather.
