A Living Legend at Lincoln Center

Drummer Roy Haynes

Drummer Roy Haynes

Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Lester Young, Bud Powell, Sarah Vaughan, Thelonius Monk, Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck, Roy Hargrove, Wardell Gray, Ray Charles, Art Blakey…

A list of Roy Haynes’ collaborations reads like the alpha and the omega of jazz. At 88 years old, Haynes does what he wants, whether it’s sitting in with members of Phish or making a cameo in Grand Theft Auto. Rock drummers Jim Keltner and Charlie Watts recorded a tribute to Haynes. Way back in 1960, Esquire named him one of the Best Dressed Men in America (alongside Clark Gable, Cary Grant and Fred Astaire). Haynes is a treasure, and he’s the featured artist on Jazz at Lincoln Center on Friday night at 11:00 PM.
