Roy Haynes – Just Us (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Just Us is an album recorded by American drummer Roy Haynes’s Trio in 1960 for the New Jazz label.

“Considering his stature, drummer Roy Haynes has led relatively few sessions throughout his long career. From 1957-1977, he headed just seven albums (none from 1969-77), including this fine trio set. Haynes sounds as if he enjoys accompanying the Red Garland-influenced piano playing of Richard Wyands and the obscure bassist Eddie DeHaas on six of the songs, and he takes “Well Now” as his feature. Haynes’ concise drum solos always hold one’s interest, and even though this tasteful date is far from definitive, the music is enjoyable. [Originally released in 1960, Just Us was reissued on CD in 2000.]” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
