Indiegogo Campaign For: Craig Haynes Jazz In Dakar CD & DVD-Just One Week Left!

Happy New Year!! I am Craig Holiday Haynes (the drummer). Most jazz fans and muisc lovers know my legendary father Roy Haynes. Anyway, I'll be performing with my new band at the Dakar Goree Jazz Festival in Dakar, Senegal in February 2016, with Jay Rodriguez on saxophone and flute, Benito Gonzalez on piano and Essiet Okon Essiet on bass (with myself on drums). We have all worked together in the past but never in this congregation. (I'll post a video of us rehearsing, as soon as we can finally be in the same place and have time).

So ... being that we are extraordinary, world class musicians ...this needs to be well documented so I'm asking for help in recording and producing a CD and DVD of this project. (audio equipment, musicians and engineers payments, pre- and post production etc.) More than that, it will be my very first recording as a leader (since I passed on many such offers over the years)! This will also be my first time performing in Senegal and although I have many fans worldwide and hopefully YOU WILL become a fan, a contributor and maybe even an associate producer with me! What a great way to bring in the new year! Helping to make "real" great music and make the world a nicer place!

We were confirmed to appear at the concert rather late and my decision to record it came even a day later, hence the urgency of this funding campaign! It will ALL be very well worth the efforts though! Who knows? The main thing is that you'll be helping some great musicians make some great music, which is part of the healing process of this planet!!
