Imagine being present at the moment of creation. Now imagine being one of the creators, inventing new sounds and new rhythms that the world has never heard, that people will still be talking about 70 years later. Drummer Roy Haynes played Birdland with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Bud Powell, AND HE’S STILL PLAYING! Better than ever, many would say. Roy’s son Graham Haynes (a marvelously accomplished and inventive musician in his own right) and I will celebrate Roy with a Deep Focus tonight from 6pm to 9pm EST on WKCR 89.9FM and wkcr.org. Yum!
