Drummer Roy Haynes on NPR

On this NPR broadcast, the always dapper Roy Haynes sounds as smooth as he no doubt looked. The two-part episode features six songs (or about 40 minutes of music) from his current quartet, Fountain of Youth Band. The recording is impeccable, particularly for a webcast, so get an earful before the Public powers-that-be make it go bye-bye.

By the way, BDT gives 25 bonus points to the show’s host, Dee Dee Bridgewater, for noting that Haynes plays “on drums…and cymbals.”
