Elvin Jones was an icon of drumming, a powerful package of energy and inspiration and a true master of his craft. This historic live recording from 1981, released for the first time, shows the powerful and dynamic performance of this great musician in synergy with his superb band. Elvin Ray Jones was born in Pontiac in 1927, as the youngest of ten children and brother of pianist Hank and trumpeter Thad Jones. He was one of the most respected and successful jazz drummers of all time. His illustrious career included spending five years as the drummer for saxophonist John Coltrane, including playing on milestone albums such as 'A Love Supreme'.

Dynamic drummer Elvin Jones led two different units on the eight selections featured on this disc of late-'70s material. The first six were done in New York during 1978 and include Jones spearheading a great band with Art Pepper on three selections, backed by outstanding bassist Richard Davis and fine pianist Roland Hanna. This is first-rate quartet material with Pepper surging and the trio challenging him, then contrasting and complementing his solos with their own great work. The other two cuts were recorded in Tokyo and issued on a previous release. They include a turbulent, often evocative version of "A Love Supreme," a 26-minute-plus tribute with Jones driving the band. The music is not as special as the title indicates but is well worth hearing.

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. A stunning early set as a leader from Elvin Jones – both a tremendous demonstration of the free energy he let loose after the passing of John Coltrane, and a set that's also still got some key Coltrane-esque elements! As with other Jones albums to follow, Elvin's got some key reedmen on hand – George Coleman on tenor, and Frank Foster on tenor, alto, and bass clarinet – both given plenty of room to run around with long solos on the open space of the record – yet without ever blowing off their heads as much as some of the younger players who'd work with Jones. There's no piano at all on the set – just the rock-slid bass of Wilbur Little, and additional congas from Candido next to Elvin's drums. The tracks have a haunting quality that mixes modal grooving with spare moments, and titles include "Simone", "5/4 Thing", "Shinjitu", and a nice version of "Yesterdays".

A overlooked gem in Elvin Jones' Blue Note career – and an album that's virtually the blueprint for the Stone Alliance sound forged later in the decade by bassist Gene Perla and reedman Steve Grossman! Both players are working to full effect on this smoking little set – mixing some of the more spiritual modes of other group members with their own sharper-edged, funky-leaning styles – all held together perfectly by both Jones' tight work on drums, and his expansive musical vision! Other players are great too – and include Pepper Adams on baritone sax, David Liebman on flute and tenor, and Jan Hammer on acoustic piano – an instrument he handles with surprising subtlety and soul. Many cuts have a hard, choppy groove – and titles include a remake of "Gee Gee", plus "One's Native Place", "Mr Jones", and "What's Up – That's It".

For this 1978 album, drummer Elvin Jones brought along his Jazz Machine, a quintet with the somewhat unusual lineup of two saxophones (Pat LaBarbera and Michael Stuart both on tenor and soprano sax), guitar (Roland Prince), bass (Andy McCloud III) and Jones, of course, on drums. Sax player LaBarbera contributes four of the seven songs here. Ever popular, Jones and his Jazz Machine continued to tour and record right up to Jones's death in 2004.

Easily the most hard-hitting of Blue Note's 2LP Lighthouse Live series from the early 70s – and a record that really lets Elvin Jones and his group stretch out and play! The setting is a perfect one for Jones – given the boundless energy already present on his studio sessions for Blue Note at the time – really fierce work that goes beyond even his classic Coltrane performances – pushing the limits in a sweet blend of rhythm and reeds! The group here is Elvin's razor-edge combo from the early 70s – the one that features Gene Perla on fat funky bass, and both Steve Grossman and Dave Liebman playing choppy reeds along with the grooves – really amazing hornmen at this point in their career, blowing here with interplay that's simply fantastic!

Elvin Jones will always be best-known for his association with the classic John Coltrane Quartet (1960-1965) but he also had a notable career as a bandleader and continued to be a major influence in music. One of the all-time great drummers (bridging the gap between advanced hard bop and the avant-garde), Jones is the younger brother of a remarkable musical family that also includes Hank and Thad Jones. After spending time in the Army (1946-1949), he was a part of the very fertile Detroit jazz scene of the early '50s. He moved to New York in 1955, worked with Teddy Charles and the Bud Powell Trio, and recorded with Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins (the latter at his famous Village Vanguard session).
