Default Re: Elvin Jones solo in Monk's Dream - Unity by Larry Young

Thanks a lot. I will try again by listening to cymbal beats. It may help to understand.

I am aware of the transcription in John Riley book, in fact that's how I found the song.

But rather than the transcription, I am interested in understanding how he feels the time and form while playing such complicated stuff.
At the end of the solo, they meet exactly on 1 with Larry Young, which means they were perfectly synchronized (mentally) throughout the solo. Even that seems so incredible to me. There must be a completely different way of thinking about it, a totally different approach to feel time. I hope to be able to understand a bit better.
