When Roy Haynes says that he's played with "everybody," it's not just a figure of speech: The 90-year-old drum legend's former employers include Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Sarah Vaughan, to name only a few. Haynes remains a galvanizing bandleader and garrulous crowd-pleaser, not to mention one of the hardest-swinging percussionists ever to pick up sticks. For this special celebration of his 91st birthday, the drummer teams up here with lyrical guitar superstar Pat Metheny.
