Roy Haynes: living jazz history

Drummer Roy Haynes brings his Fountain of Youth Band to the Stanford Jazz Festival on Saturday, July 14. There are a million reasons why you shouldn’t miss this show, not the least of which being that the music will be fantastic. But now we’ll just focus on one question: Why wouldn’t you want to see a performance by the guy who had extended musical associations with most of the greatest artists in jazz history? Check out the list below, which is by no means exhaustive. And keep in mind he was with Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan, and John Coltrane for extended periods of time.
