JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2012 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Roy Haynes Fountain of Youth Band at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

At 87 Roy Haynes would really rather just talk than play the drums. He tap danced as he took the stage and is living proof that music keeps you young. His band plays jazz the old fashioned way, not precious, not muscular but loose and swinging. They sounded their best on the ballads and that comes with age. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
