Preview: Roy Haynes at the Litchfield Jazz Festival

Roy Haynes Performs at the Litchfield Jazz Fest

By Alex W. Rodriguez for the Hartford Advocate

Adding a notch to my freelancing belt with this one — thanks to Bill Carbone for the connection, and the opportunity to talk to another one of the music’s legends while in my temporary New England digs. Some quotes that didn’t make the final piece:

“I’ve always been a dreamer – in school I used to daydream, but now I know that every moment is to be cherished.”

“I don’t know what the heck I would have done if I wasn’t playing these drums since I was a teenager.”

“I am a natural born drummer.”
