Haynes, Roy – Cymbalism (LP – New)


Reissue of Roy Haynes’s Cymbalism, originally released in 1963. A very rare album by one of the master drummers in modern jazz. Recorded by the legendary Rudy Van Gelder in 1963, Cymbalism is among the albums that Roy Haynes provided for Prestige’s New Jazz series. This session finds the drummer leading an acoustic quartet with Frank Strozier (alto sax, flute), Ronnie Mathews (piano), and Larry Ridley (bass). An unpredictable hard bop-post bop transition album bearing different colors and moods. From Charlie Parker’s primary influence through some sort of Coltranish expanded sound. Without forgetting to mention a both unexpected and welcomed funky soul-jazz number as ending track.
