AllMusic Review by

The definition of jazz journeyman, Roy Haynes has been drumming professionally since the 1940s, picking up collaborators along the way like Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. TE VOU!/PRAISE captures the eternally young Haynes on two of his 1990s albums. TE VOU! is a tasteful set featuring an all-star lineup of guitarist Pat Metheny, pianist David Kikoski, and bassist Christian McBride. Cool, colorful compositions like “Blues M45” feature Haynes’s nimble drumming as backbone to his collaborators’ flights of fancy. PRAISE finds him covering Charlie Parker on “My Little Suede Shoes” and Chick Corea on “Mirror Mirror,” adding his stamp to these classics.
