  • Recorded when Elvin Jones was still a member of the legendary John Coltrane quartet (along with McCoy Tyner and Jimmy Garrison), ELVIN! is surprising in its lack of resemblance to the music that quartet was doing at the time. While Coltrane was increasingly leaning toward avant garde explorations, Jones took the opposite route as a leader by creating a program of smoothly swinging bop.
  • Elvin formed a sextet for the date starring his brothers--pianist Hank and cornetist Thad--along with a bassist, tenor saxophonist, and flutist. Elvin keeps the rhythm steady for much of the album (seldom erupting into the intense polyrhythmic thunder he was famous for with Coltrane), but the approach serves the music nicely. This is classy music that, while not groundbreaking, holds up very well.
