O’s Notes: 75 year old drummer Roy Haynes still keeps the rhythm well, anchoring a trio with Danilo Perez (p) and John Patitucci (b) for 6 studio and 4 live tracks. Roy is packing a lot of energy and it explodes throughout the session along with strong solos from each musician; most notably on Sarah Vaughn’s “Shulie-a-Bop” and Monk’s “Green Chimneys”.
