For those interested in watching Roy in action, these two DVDs are essential: The reunion of the "Now He Sings, Now He Sobs" trio, available here - http://www.amazon.com/Chick-Corea-Now-Sings-Sobs/dp/B000E1OIAI/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1215449553&sr=1-13
and the "Remembering Bud Powell" quintet, available here - http://www.amazon.com/Remembering-Powell-Chick-Corea-Friends/dp/B000BVNSAC/ref=sr_1_23?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1215449553&sr=1-23,
both part of the Rendezvous In New York series of DVDs recorded by Chick Corea and friends at the Blue Note in New York. Seeing Roy play in beautiful HD video and excellent sound is even better than hearing his CDs. And Marc wasn't exaggerating - he looks (and plays) like someone half his age.


Wow! This is the first time that I have been to this blog. The interview with Mr. Haynes is outstanding! Reading it made me feel like I was there, and I caught his vibe and energy (yours, too, Mr. Myers!)

I gotta check out both the "A Grand Night for Swinging" and "One Night Stand: The Townhall Concert" CDs.

Thank you for the inspiration, also.
