it’s not been a great week for music, nothing has seemed right, so friday i pulled out a 6-night run by elvin jones at seattle’s jazz alley.  only made it around 4 hours into it by the end of the day (thanks, conference calls!), and am playing it with breaks until the full 13+ hours runs out.  these are pretty good audience recordings.  anyway, feeling much better now.  also bought a digital download version of will calhoun‘s celebrating elvin jones, “sight unseen” just to round out the week.

  2. FANTASTIC!…APPRECIATED!…
    HUGE THX!…

  3. AMAZING!! AWESOME!!

    I had a dvd of a concert by Elvin Jones at Vienne, France.
    I think it was this exact lineup.
    beautiful deep music. me and my friends we didn’t get enough of that, always consulting that session, discovering new details or just enjoying again.
    I miss that dvd.

    I can’t thank you enough for sharing this!!
    cheers

  4. This is a stupendous gift, Pete, and thanks very much. Always like and respect Elvin’s groups and how can you argue with one of the great drumming geniuses of all time??? Many thanks and hope you get to the end of your Elvinathon!

    • the elvinathon is 10 hours in & going strong. thought i’d listen to it over the weekend, but was too busy, and then more phone calls today… probably finish it tomorrow.

  5. A million of thanks!

  6. Wow! Merci beaucoup, Pete !
