Roy Haynes also recorded at the time with pianist Bud Powell.
He said about Bud Powell:
”Bud Powell could outfox anyone, another player
The drummer was going to make him sound good.
It was beautiful playing behind him. Cause he had so much rhythm. All you had to do is accompany him.”
From 1953 to 1958 he toured with singer Sarah Vaughan and also recorded with her.
He said about Sarah Vaughan:
”Usually I knew where she was going. But if she was scatting, naturally, that’s ad-libbing, and I’d have to figure it out.
She started introducing us on this tune she’d scat,and say, “Roy…dat-dat-dat…Haynes.”
Sarah Vaughan was the Charlie Parker of the vocalists during the 1950s. It was great.”
After that he played a plethora of extended gigs with Thelonious Monk (1959-60), recorded eight albums with Eric Dolphy (1960-61).
He had collaborations with Chick Corea since 1968.
He continues to blow people away when they hear his performance on the 1968 classic trio album by Chick Corea, ‘Now He Sing Now He Sobs’.
