Re: Elvin Jones
I did not know which Elvin Jones thread to place this question in, I decided on this one since it discusses a lot of Elvin as a man, and not just his great drumming.
I like purchasing CD's and Records to listen to music. It gives back to the artists a little that way, I feel. Well of course we lost Elvin a few years ago, but his estate would most likely benefit from the purchases.
I purchased Bill Fresell with Dave Holland and Elvin Jones. It is not a bad CD but Elvin does not sound like Elvin on this CD.
I've read a few reviews of this CD online, but other then commenting on Elvin's playing no one gave a reason. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light onto this and what made Elvin play so different on this CD.
I am not here just to keep the beat; I add color, timbre, and presence.
