ROY HAYNES RECEIVED GEORGE PEABODY MEDAL

Legendary drummer and bandleader Roy Haynes received the George Peabody Medal for Outstanding Contributions to Music in America on May 24 at graduation ceremonies for the Peabody Conservatory, the highly regarded music school of The Johns Hopkins University. Jazz drummer and Peabody faculty artist Nasar Abadey (right) interviewed Haynes (left) at graduation. Haynes, who turned 87 on March 13, developed styles of snare drum and cymbal playing that influenced several generations of drummers.

He began performing with Lester Young and Charlie Parker in the 1940s and toured with Sarah Vaughan in the 1950s, later working with John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Chick Corea, and many other jazz greats. In February 2011, he received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award. A number of other jazz performers, composers, and producers have received the George Peabody Medal since its establishment in 1980, including Eubie Blake (1980), Benny Goodman (1982), Ella Fitzgerald (1983), Oscar Peterson (1987), Billy Taylor (1994), Wynton Marsalis (1996), Bobby McFerrin (2002), and Quincy Jones (2007).
