Here's a recent Night Lights episode devoted to drummer Roy Haynes, focusing on the recordings he made from the late 1940s through the beginning of the 1970s with artists such as Lester Young, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, and Sarah Vaughan, in addition to his own dates as a leader:

Ohhh ....

Talking about "young" Roy Haynes, so you did not include any of his tracks from his first leader session in Sweden in October, 1954? And none of his recordings made under his own name a couple of weeks later in Paris for Swing and CfD either? (The Swing 10-incher has been reissued not long ago in that much-touted Vogue box set) What a pity. The Metronome sessions, in particular, have reached not quite cult status but are highly regarded among the expatriate recordings from that era here. And after all it was these sessions that put him on the map as a "young" leader - years before he recorded as a leader again. ;)

So these recordings definitely do not deseve to stay under the radar in his leader discography, paticularly when it comes to acknowledging when his career as a leader actually began.;)
