Roy Haynes Solo Study no. 2

Artist: Pat Metheny
Track: Solar
Album: Question & Answer

Here’s another example of some excellent playing by the jazz legend Roy Haynes. Although i’ve studied more ‘technical’ drummers, there seems to be an honesty and simplicity to Roy’s approach that can prove irresistible. These mini ‘solos’ are examples of Roy trading 12 bar choruses with Pat Metheny. Notice how the end of Metheny’s solo provides inspiration for the start of Roy’s.

Work through each chorus individually. The choruses start from 5:10
