ROY HAYNES picture
Roy Owen Haynes (born March 13, 1925) is a jazz drummer Haynes was born in Boston, Massachusetts and began his full time professional career in 1945. From 1947 to 1949 he worked with Lester Young, and from 1949 to 1952 was a member of the Charlie Parker Quintet. He also recorded at the time with Bud Powell, Wardell Gray, and Stan Getz. From 1953 to 1958 he toured with Sarah Vaughan. Haynes is one of the most recorded drummers in jazz and in his over 60-year career has played in a wide range of styles ranging from swing to avant-garde jazz. In addition to being a sideman, some feel that Haynes is one of the most original musicians in jazz history. He has a highly expressive, personal style ("Snap Crackle" was a nickname given him in the 1950s) and is known to foster a deep engagement in his bandmates, listening read more...

ROY HAYNES Out of the Afternoon

Out of the Afternoon is something of a hidden gem that I stumbled upon and can't recommend enough to fans of that 'driving' hard bop sound.

There's an astonishing amount of energy here stemming from Roy Haynes' quick and heavy drumming. Roland Kirk really out does himself on this record on the tenor sax (and occasional flute) with lots of forceful playing to the point of overblowing at times. Tommy Flanagan takes a few nice solos but he is frequently outshone by Kirk's intensity and drive. Haynes takes a few interesting and fun solo romps but this show was stolen by Kirk.

"Fly Me To The Moon" and "If I Should Lose You" are highlights; play this album when you need an energy boost or early on in a large get together.

Its hard to believe that we still have a living jazz musician whose career started with Lester Young, but the 86 year old Roy Haynes shows no signs of letting up on his latest release, “Roy-alty”. Its also nice that the good folks at the Dreyfuss label decided to record this without any gimmicks or trendy superfluous additives, instead what we get is no-nonsense hard bop recorded pure and live in the studio with no artificial reverb or sweetener of any kind. The recorded sound on Haynes’ drums is excellent, very dry and natural as if you were sitting next to him at a small club, and every nuance of his inventive playing comes through clearly. Roy is not big on flash like many post 70s cats, but instead prods the soloists with subtle poly-rhythms and smart interactions with their rhythmic phrasing.

There’s a nice choice of tunes on here with a couple old classics mixed with some newer material that may be original, but my copy does not have writing credits. A couple tunes feature a small Latin percussion ensemble for that Afro-Cuban/hard bop sound. Another interesting highlight is the cover of “They Call the Wind Mariah” which is done in classic Coltrane style modal drone, but unfortunately fades way too soon. Possibly the biggest treat is the appearance of Chick Corea on two cuts who plays in the pre-70s style of his youth. This is the Corea I remember from my early days of jazz exploration back when he would combine McCoy Tyner’s modalisms with Monk’s quirky dissonances into a bluesier answer to Herbie Hancock’s more neo-classical sensibilities. In the 60s, Corea was destined to be the new ultimate in abstract beatnik cubist hipster pianoisms, but then the 70s led him away from this style for many years.

This is a great CD, classic hard bop with just a little bit of modern sensibility in that they provide enough variety in the ensemble settings so that today’s more attention challenged listener doesn’t fatigue.
