Album Notes
Joel Haynes is an emerging, dynamic drummer on the Canadian jazz scene. Since the age of 7, he has been playing and studying the drums with absolute dedication and determination. Joel has grown from his early community musical experiences in his hometowns of Hamilton and Burlington, Ontario, and has progressed to playing with some of the finest jazz artists in Canada. Highlights include being nominated for a “National Jazz Award” in 2003, and being invited to perform with Oscar Peterson and Dave Young for the Toronto Tsunami Relief Benefit in January, 2005.

Many influences have formed Joel’s musical styling. His jazz studies at Humber College, McGill University, and the University of Toronto have given him a broad base of skills and knowledge which have shaped him into a highly technical, defined, inventive and diverse musician. Instructors in Montreal and Toronto include: Andre White, Dave Laing, Chris McCann, Bob McClaren, Don Vickory, and Barry Elmes.

During and following his educational experiences, Joel has performed at many major jazz festivals in North America, South America, The Caribbean, and Europe. While in Ontario, he has played with many outstanding jazz artists, such as: Ray Anderson, Rob McConnell, Sam Noto, Dave Young, P.J. Perry, Cornelius Dupré, Don Thompson, Neil Swainson, Jim Vivian, Bernie Senensky, David Braid, Steve Koven, Andrew Scott, Billy Robinson, and Verve recording artist, Denzal Sinclaire. While Joel is admired for his skills within the jazz idiom, his diversity and excellent reading skills has enabled him to perform for popular musical theatrical shows such as: Cats, Urinetown, The Rat Pack, and West Side Story. Additional tours include an upcoming project with Darren Sigesmund’s Quintet with David Braid, touring Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghi, and various cities in Korea.

Minka,Kayla & Blue Balls

Super Jazz
This swinging session reminds us of...well US! together working as a Quartet instead of a threesome though. That in mind please stellar jazz fans:listen to the exemplary drum wattage. Joel Haynes is a hard-nosed-SUD! No doubt about it. His timing,rhythm and execution on the sticks is better than Blue Balls' on the mattress! The WIld Card member is the Sax-man Seamus Blake. His tone is smokin! Close to Eric Alexander we reckon! Yikes just buy our Dvd & The CD ok guys & dolls!! Almost as Good as a Score Group Production!

Don & Bob Chong

Cool Drums & Horn
Love the horn dog on this cd. Seamus Blake is better than a fog horn while bellowing on his reed. Classy and sophisticated tunes for the 9-5 working class heroes alike. Low brow humourists and university professors may indulge their horny fancies while listening to Joel Haynes' finest wares after work. Haynes is the constant gardener on the drums. His pace,hustle and delicacy is amazing. JH can also bust a nut on the snair drum too. Wow. Classy gents & house wives may even appreciate his slappy-happy harmonies. I know i did. Jolly good show Mr. Haynes!

Molly Yum Yum

I likes my Beer with a lot of Head. Molly loves men who can get it Up. Through the night preferably guys. This cd is not HIGH Octane fuel but it does offer sweet moments of passion inspired excellence. Like when Seamus Blake savours the solo on his horn. I am a post doc studies kind of Bitch. So when i need a hit of hydro or some music to party with my girls then i reach for this after a long night of fun. Usually in wee hours of the night. After i have smoked a BIG sweet Phatty...but before i a go down on Johnson. Yah dig it sisters! It's Miller Time for Molly! me out 420 action girls?

La Fin Du Monde 750ml Strong Beer
9% and Triple Fermented Music for sure fans! From Quebec to BC. Grab your Bud and get down to da Club. Hey you bionic rascals and corporate horn dogs. I want to tell you that Joel is tapping his instrument,whipping his cymbals in style. Yah want a Jazz Bomber after 4:20 then Hollar because Joel Haynes is your Pro on the skins people. BEST Jazz cd this Year! NO Doubt! Word Up. Mr. Haynes can scap and groove with the best of them! JH for Pres. Oh Yes, Oh Yah!
