Description
The great, innovative drummer was born in the Roxbury section of Boston on March 25th, 1925. He came up playing in Luis Russell's Boston-based big band as a teenager and upon moving the New York City in 1947 he worked with such jazz royalty as Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Bud Powell. It was during this time, in the heyday of bebop, that he earned the nickname "Snap Crackle" for his personalized and highly syncopated approach to the kit. From 1953 to 1958, Haynes toured and recorded with the great jazz singer Sarah Vaughan. He worked with Thelonious Monk in 1958 and in the '60s recorded with Stan Getz (Focus), Oliver Nelson (Blues in the Abstract Truth), Andrew Hill (Black Fire, Smokestack), John Coltrane (Newport '63), Jackie McLean (Destination Out!), Gary Burton (Duster). Chick Corea (Now He Sings, Now He Sobs) and Jack DeJohnette (The DeJohnette Complex). He formed his Hip Ensemble in 1970 and also toured and recorded through the '70s with the Gary Burton Quartet (featuring Pat Metheny and Steve Swallow) and through the '80s with Chick Corea's Trio (featuring bassist Miroslav Vitous). He appeared on McCoy Tyner's Grammy-winning Blues for Coltrane in 1987 and on Pat Metheny's Question and Answer in 1989. He released a string of acclaimed albums as a leader through the '90s and '00s and performed at Sonny Rollins' 80th birthday celebration at the Beacon Theatre (later released as Road Shows 2). This playlist features Haynes with the Newport All-Stars at the 1963 festival, as a special guest with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers at Central Park in 1973.
