Elvin Jones A Different Drummer pt1
Jazz extrodinare Ron Carter says it best in this documentary, to understand the impact of Elvin Jones playing is to listen to drumming before Elvin and then listen drumming styles after Elvin hit the scene.
Jazz master Elvin is one of my personal favorites because of his impact of presenting polyrhythm to the world. His contribution to world of music is undeniable. In particular Elvin's work with Coltrane. If you have any doubts take a quick listen to "Love Supreme. Let the drums speak.
