At the age of 85, drummer Roy Haynes hasn't lost any of his percussive force. He made his marks ---playing with Charlie Parker, Pat Metheny, the Allman Brothers and even as DJ on the video game Grand Theft Auto IV. Now Haynes brings his vibrant Fountain of Youth Band to Rose Theater. Wendell Pierce hosts. Check out Roy Haynes' JazzStories podcast, available June 27; also on iTunes.
