“Kevin Haynes press Reviews * Posted by Egbe oduniyi productions on November 11, 2009 at 3:11pm * View Blog A deep, rewarding listen from a band who are probably even better heard in the flesh. Very fine indeed." Peter Marsh - BBC Jazz Review Their second album it's a giant leap forward - the band has never sounded more cohesive and together, now playing as one integrated unit as opposed to sections, Jazz and Afro-Cuban. Kevin Haynes has matured as a saxophonist displaying a clear pure tone and sharp attack on the alto reminiscent of Jackie Mcleans "Destination Out" Blue Note era... " Luby "Slavoloco" Jovanovic - Straight No Chaser Magazine Ori Ire and 1997 debut album Tomorrows' Path are excellent snapshots, but to really appreciate the music you have to see them live, where they can rip up dancehalls and raise the roof off the most polite jazz bar..." John Lewis - Time Out”

    SATURDAY 3RD AUGUST Passing Clouds presents AFRICA IN MOTION featuring ADESOSE WALLACE & IBILE KEVIN HAYNES & GRUPO ELEGUA*** (Bata drumming/ Nu World jazz) British-born Trinidadian-descended saxophonist/ percussionist/dancer Hayes possesses a sharp Jackie MacLean attack, mixing driving post bop with Afrocentric rhythms and folkloric influences. Mixing words that reflect the myths and beliefs of the Nigerian Yoruba tribe with trickles of jazz piano and sax with the intense, insistent rhythm of the bata (a Yoruba drum), Grupo Elegua offers a vivacious, original take on Afro-Caribbean musical influences. http://www.reverbnation.com/kevinhayneshisgrupoeleguaPassing Clouds 1 Richmond Rd, Dalston, E8 4AA London, United Kingdom
