Transcribed by Doug Garrison

Elvin Jones needs no introduction to drummers. He reached prominence in the early sixties by way of his pioneering rhythmic concepts behind the late, revered tenor saxophonist John Coltrane. Elvin Jones maintains his position as one of the most dynamic and innovative players on the jazz scene, and has established himself as one of the most important names in the development of the instrument.
