That's the weirdest thing I've ever read, how exactly does Elvin sound like Buddy, Gene, Max Roach, Philly Joe, Billy Cobham or Tony Williams (the list is endless), he sounds nothing like any of them but still probably influenced them all at one time or another. To quote Miles Davis "That cat could light a fire under the music like no other motherf*cker!".
