A four disc boxed set (3 CDs + 1 bonus DVD) celebrating the career of legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes.

A Life in Time not only tells Roy’s story – it tells a thrilling story of jazz, and all of its glorious changes. Featuring highlights of Roy’s work as a sideman and as a bandleader, this one-of-a-kind collection brings together a plethora of history-making recordings.

Roy was there: Bud Powell’s first sessions for Blue Note (“Bouncin’ with Bud”); Sonny Rollins’ first recordings as a leader (“I Know,” featuring Miles Davis on piano); Charlie Parker’s classic latin sessions (“My Little Suede Shoes”); Etta Jones’ break-out hit for Prestige (“Don’t Go To Strangers”); Eric Dolphy’s boundary stretching Outward Bound; Thelonious Monk with Johnny Griffin at The Five Spot (“Rhythm-a-ning”); John Coltrane changing the sound of the Newport Jazz Festival (“My Favorite Things”); Chick Corea’s breakthrough (“Matrix”); and the list goes on!

Equally as impressive are Roy’s great moments as a leader: with Phineas Newborn and Paul Chambers from We Three; with Rahsaan Roland Kirk on the classic Out of the Afternoon; the funky fusion of Roy’s early 70’s Mainstream recordings (“Equipoise”); great moments with Pat Metheny (“James”); Kenny Garrett, Roy Hargrove and Dave Holland featured on the all-star tribute to Bird (“My Heart Belongs To Daddy”); to his most recent Grammy Nominated recordings with the Fountain of Youth band.

Featuring a brand new essay by renowned author and jazz historian Ashley Kahn, and a wonderful bonus DVD (45 min) featuring exclusive interviews, a rare performance from 1973, and a jaw-dropping performance from the 2005 Modern Drummer Festival! A Life in Time: The Roy Haynes Story is the jazz event of the year!
