Drummer week at BBR Snaps and Crackles with Roy Haynes, which is appropriate because that was his nickname in the 1950s. Roy started his pro career at 17 in his native Boston and has now been working for 70 years as a jazz drummer, albeit one with a tribute from rock luminaries Jim Keltner and Charlie Watts. Here are Roy’s first albums as a side man:

1949: Meet Milt Jackson (Milt Jackson)
1949: The Amazing Bud Powell (Bud Powell)
1950: Stan Getz Quartets, The Complete Roost Recordings (Stan Getz)
1951: Miles Davis and Horns (Miles Davis)
1955: In the Land of Hi-Fi (Sarah Vaughan)
1958: Thelonious in Action (Thelonious Monk)
1958: Misterioso (Thelonious Monk)
1958: Portrait of Art Farmer (Art Farmer)
1958: Brass & Trio (Sonny Rollins)

Any questions?  We didn’t think so. Welcome to BBR drummer week Mr. Haynes.
