Elvin Jones news...

I just heard that Elvin Jones passed away yesterday. I understand that he isn't a horn player, but he played w/ many great saxophonists. He was an unbelievable drummer. I am just curious as to everyones thoughts about his life, career, or your favorite recording in which he played a part.

      Elvin. I just found out. Sad news for sure. One of the true, great masters. Coltrane's favorite drummer. So many great sax players worked with him: Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Joe Hen, Brecker, Lovano, Liebman, Grossman, Joe Farrell..., and many other greats. I think I'll listen to Speak No Evil, or The Drum Thing on Crescent, Inner Urge, Village Vanguard with Sonny, the Real McCoy, ... Wow. What a legacy.
