Another great video interview from JazzVideoGuy Bret Primack. His channel on YouTube is full of cool videos like this one, check it out if you haven’t already.
There aren’t too many of the all time legends still with us. Today, Bret and http://www.midatlanticjazzfestival.org present an in-depth talk with Jazz percussion great Roy Haynes, with Nasar Abadey, at the 2012 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival. Roy talks about his first drum set, how he never played with Duke Ellington’s Orchestra, gigging with Charlie Parker and Lester Young, and other memories, as well as offering some of his tap dancing expertise.
