Some fine sax trio work from Elvin Jones, Reggie Workman, and Joe Farrel. I am a particular fan of alot of Elvin's post-Coltrane groups. A couple records that I think are great and absolutly worth checking out are:
- Elvin Jones - Live at the Village Vanguard (with Goerge Coleman, Marvin "Hannibal Peterson, and Wilbur Little
- Elvin Jones - Live at the Lighthouse (with Steve Grossman, Dave Liebman, and Gene Perla)
- Elvin Jones - Puttin' It Together (with Joe Farrel and Jimmy Garrison)
What a force behind the kit! Absolutely incredible footage. His time feel is so unique and abstract, but unbelievable how much he moves the music forward. Can't get enough of it!
Also check out how the drum set gets away from him during the drum solo, it's happened to all of us, right?!
