Roy Haynes has been working with the musicians on the cutting edge in every decade since the '40s. His energetic style and the challenging sprit has never weakened, on the contrary, remaining very fresh (in his outlook too). His pick for the collaborating musicians is always finest, which brings the credit as "master drummer and the bandleader" of the world.

This album features two great settings: one date featuring tenor saxophone (Joshua Redman, Kenny Barron and Christian McBride), and the other with guitar (John Scofield, David Kikoski and Dave Holland). The format varies according to the piece; it can be said that the beauty of jazz music is condensed in this very album. The listeners will be enchanted by the versatile and flexible performance of each artists, including the amazing drums solo piece "Shades of Senegal 2". Haynes also pay homage to the musicians he has worked with in his early career by picking "Stompin' at the Savoy" in the repertoire - the legendary Savoy Ballroom was the very first club where Haynes has performed when he first came to New York in 1945. This coolest and dashing drummer surely "beats" our imagination - with his art of drumming.

Voted one of the Top 10 jazz albums of 2003 by The New Yorker.
