    Dance to the NEA Jazz Master drummer in a concert from the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater in Washington, DC.

    Roy Haynes is on JazzSet this Sunday, March 4, at 6pm and/or Wednesday, March 7, at 6:30 on WBGO. Or listen online at your convenience, here.

    Set list: "James" by Pat Metheny .. "Milestones" by Miles .. "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" (Roy's mallets are like a tympani) .. "These Foolish Things" .. "Summer Night" .. with a little soft shoe by the man himself, in cowboy boots.

    There's even a cameo appearance from Mr. Haynes in this promo:

    After the show, Roy and his Fountain of Youth Band were all smiles.
