The winner of the 1998 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance. For this spectacular album, vibraphonist Gary Burton arranged the first recording encounter between pianist Chick Corea and guitarist Pat Metheny, and recruited an impeccable rhythm section staffed by bassist Dave Holland and drum legend Roy Haynes. LIKE MINDS, the resulting album, ranks among these musicians best work, with the kind of soul-deep communication that is often expected but so rarely occurs on all-star sessions.

This recording is simply sheer brilliance.”Dave Hughes, All About Jazz

Roy Haynes is a legendary drummer who’s had a very long and illustrious career, and he is still going strong with incredible energy and vitality. For this album – now considered a classic – Eighty-Eight’s producer Yasohachi Itoh put together an all-star, intergenerational band around him: Kenny Barron and David Kikoski on piano, Dave Holland and Christian McBride on bass, Joshua Redman on sax and John Scofield on guitar.

These all-stars were all eager to play with Haynes, and their joy of making music together is infectious. Recorded by the legendary engineer David Baker in pure DSD and produced as a hybrid SACD, the sound quality of this disc is exemplary. Strongly recommended to jazz fans and audiophiles!

Out of the Afternoon is a splendid sounding 1962 set from the Roy Haynes Quartet — which, at the time, consisted of Haynes, Henry Grimes on bass, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Roland Kirk on saxes, manzello, stritch, and flutes. The album is a delightful mix of techniques in arrangement and performance, with all of the musicians delivering terrific work. Haynes’ drumming is absolutely wonderful here, lightly dancing around the other instruments; Flanagan’s piano playing is equally light and delicate; Grimes’ bass work is outstanding (during “Raoul” you have a chance to hear one of the few bowed bass solos on records of that era); and there’s no more to be said about Kirk’s sax and flute work that hasn’t been said a hundred times, apart from the fact that the flute solos on “Snap Crackle” help this cut emerge as particularly outstanding.
