This is a stunning live performance of jazz legend Elvin Jones - the archetypical modern jazz musician - instinct not intellect. This is the kind of music he has played to perfection since his days with John Coltrane. There are some heavy-duty side-men in his present "Jazz Machine", Sonny Fortune and Ravi John Coltrane, the son of the most influential tenor sax player ever.
Master jazz drummer Elvin Jones is captured in a recent live performance, with Sonny Fortune (reeds), Willie Pickens (piano), Chip Jackson (bass) and Ravi Coltrane (sax). Selections include "Is There a Jackson in the House," "Doll of the Bride" and "Ray El."
