Re: The Almighty Elvin Jones
He's amazing. Even when he plays simple, it's still just stunning.
Go find the track "Alabama" from "Live At Birdland". Wow. Mid-tempo time playing, mostly ride cymbal... but still an amazing and memorable piece of drumming. It has swing coming out of its eyeballs.
I must admit not being a huge fan of his soloing on A Love Supreme though.
