Thursday's Night Beat

Happy Birthday to Roy Haynes, born 89 years ago today!

Can't wait to hit at eight, sharing the music with YOU is my favorite thing to DO! On this evening's Night Beat:

Happy Birthday to Blue Mitchell, Terence Blanchard, Stephen Scott, and the ageless one, the Force of Nature himself, Roy (play-me-some-jazz-man) Haynes (right-now)! We could play 2 hours of music on every one of those cats (Hint: "Trio Music"), but instead we'll squeeze them all, and much more, into just the 2 hours. That's 8-10 Mountain DAYLIGHT Time. Don't Miss It!
