Default Re: Elvin Jones

As you'll learn more about jazz drumming, and the importance of the drums as a solo instrument you'll understand the 'mechanics' behind what makes an Elvin or Tony solo initially sound so intimidating. Elvin for example favoured using three beat phrases, but could start these phrases anywhere on the 4/4 bar, amongst many other transformations.
