Elvin Jones: Jazz Machine

<< Previous in As Seen on TV Next in As Seen on TV >>
Price: $19.98
Item Number: 2346
Artist: Jones, Elvin

Legendary Jazz drummer Elvin Jones heads this live, full-length concert DVD entitled, Elvin Jones: Jazz Machine. Assembling an all-star band that includes Sonny Fortune and Ravi Coltrane, among others, Elvin plays with the thunderous power that reverberated throughout the Jazz community and influenced generations of musicians, such as Ginger Baker of Cream and Mitch Mitchell of the Jimi Hendrix Experience. He comes out smokin' and goes from there.

 

Touted by life magazine as "the world's greatest rhythmic drummer," and described by percussion icon Louie Bellson as “Mother Earth coming alive with syncopation,” it would be impossible to overstate the importance of drum legend Elvin Jones in the evolution of Jazz. His family is considered Jazz royalty, with his brothers, pianist Hank Jones and trumpeter Thad Jones, equally revered in the Jazz community. By the mid 1960s he was a member of John Coltrane's groundbreaking Quartet, playing on massively influential recordings such as A Love Supreme and Coltrane ‘Live’ at the Village Vanguard.

 

“…a powerful demonstration of modern jazz by one of music's  

 masters”                                             - Chuck Berg, Jazz Times

 

On this special DVD, Jazz veterans Willie Pickens and Chip Jackson brilliantly orchestrate the power of Jones’ drums, while young confrere saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and veteran Sonny Fortune showcase their skills while helping accentuate their mentor’s bold, free flowing style that helped move his boisterous instrument from the back of the club to the forefront of Music.
