Transcription: Roy Haynes - It's Time - drum solo

Here's Roy Haynes's drum solo from the title track of a Jackie McLean record we visited a few months ago, It's Time. The solo begins at 5:31.

Pull up my Cliché Control page and start comparing this with things found in this and some other solos. I feel like I'm seeing a lot of the same stuff. This also contains a lot of patterns in 3, so there's some conceptual overlap with my Roy Haynes waltz lesson.

The tempo on the tune overall moves around a little bit, all within natural tolerances. The last three solos are Herbie Hancock, Cecil McBee, Roy. Herbie's solo starts at ~266, Cecil's solo ends at around 248, Roy's solo ends at around 280 or above. After the horns come in with the head out the tempo settles a little bit.
