Origin: United States

Cornetist Graham Haynes grew up in Queens, NYC, where he was surrounded by musicians, most notably his father, legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes. After his music studies at Queens College, he turned his attention to both classical and electronic music. The 1980s saw him collaborating with saxophonist Steve Coleman and recording his first album, What Time It Be? (1989). Haynes soon developed an interest in hip hop and sampling, releasing a series of albums, including 1994's acclaimed Griot's Footsteps. Constantly innovating, he issued the popular album BPM in 2000, blending drum'n'bass with classical music. Always in high demand, the musician continues to score music for movies, plays and various other projects. He released studio effort Full Circle in 2007.
