5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin'! Elvin Jones is a volcano of rhythm. 17 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Percussion powerhouse Elvin Jones, the rhythm dynamo who propelled the classic John Coltrane Quartet, brings his screaming intensity to his Jazz Machine in this stirring video that features Trane's son Ravi on tenor as well as veteran saxman Sonny Fortune and Chicago mainstay Willie Pickins on piano. Songs include "Is There a Jackson in the House?", "Ray El" and "Doll of the Bride". #1346 (58 min, Hi-Fi Stereo)

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Great! 11 Dec 2004
By Jucman - Published on
This is amazing footage... three songs, all of which Elvin takes solos on. Sonny Fortune literally BURNS through the last tune, and Ravi Coltrane is right there with him. Elvin is amazing, he is pushing the band on and on and his basist, Chip Jackson, is ready to amuse. Why four and not five stars? The sound quality, and the pianist. I just could not stand the pianist. Thankfully I don't know his name, so I won't lambaste him any further. Finally, the sound quality, of course I wasn't expecting much, but the sound is somewhat mushy. Elvin's solos sometimes seem a little repettitive due to the sound quality, and sometimes I would have to turn up to hear the base, and then down for the drums. But don't get me wrong, all in all, this is an awesome DVD from a drum master.

He is not just a drummer, he is what Jazz is all about. Pure Joy and Freedom of Expressive Poetry. Everyone should have this in their DVD video Jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars God bless Elvin Jones 25 Feb 2006
By Bill Allegretti - Published on

A must for Be-Bop lovers. Elvin Jones is the master and, regretably, there will probably never be another drummer who even comes close to his combination of talent, skills and ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars giant among giants... 24 Jun 2012
By Mark Zika - Published on
the performance begins with elvin jones counting out the time and then transferring that to one driving cymbal {i'm already excited} starting the band off with the opening theme to 'is there a jackson in the house'. soloists' are sonny fortune on tenor saxophone, ravi john coltrane, on soprano, willie pickens on acoustic piano, chip jackson on stand-up bass and last but not least elvin jones seated before a full drum kit. sonny fortune soulful tenor starts, performing on familiar ground in the post bop tradition. he has that full masculine tenor sound and approach; very confident and very passionate. leaves no doubt to his expertise on saxophone. ravi john coltrane follows on soprano not as aggressive as his predecessor, selecting notes more deliberately. not attempting to repeat post bop lines maybe, i can't say but; more deliberate style of playing, anyway. will pickens enters on piano. what a wonderful choice having pickens on board in this ensemble; his clean lines, clean playing; he too travels the post bop road and splendidly he does on this wonderful solo which takes us on a journey of wonderful chording, and he brings out the qualities inherent in the acoustic piano. chip jackson enters with bass solo. here is a man who really loves his instrument. he's all over the place and a passionate player he is. elvin jones performs his solo on full kit with fluidity and grace with such skill the european audience responds cheering and whistling... deep into a complex solo elvin is gone, or so it appears by the expression on his face; but, of course there is a smile present for elvin so loves to play. the band returns to the thesis and concludes with a rewarding opener.
sonny fortune on flute, ravi john coltrane on soprano, playing in unison opens second piece 'ray el'. flute solo by fortune is damn good. he flys all over the place like a bird with maximum control of the instrument. {i always think of and miss eric dolphy when i hear a flute solo in jazz; he was the best}. ravi coltrane follows on soprano playing notes not stream like, but leaps from note to note; hard to do, showing his skills on soprano. pickens plays very interestingly throughout his solo challenging the listeners; maintaining an exploratory approach but, at the same time right there and very inspiring.
'doll of the bride' is the title of song three. inspired by japanese folk song. elvin is very nervous as he speaks to the audience at this time but it is wonderful because his humility is so present. they say he was the nicest man you could ever meet. this third and last song is truly the climax of the evening. it opens powerfully and maintains this dynamic energy. such a hip opening melody too. it absolutely takes off and goes and goes splendidly in the world of jazz improvisation. beginning with pickens solo prompting us solidly into his ideas. into the solo pickens takes us into this percussive chordal journey which is nothing less than brilliant; what a performer he is! enters fortune on tenor. all solos on this piece are killers but this journey by fortune is like a history of jazz tenor; it goes so many places... and passion abounds. at one point the band choruses into a wild flurry and fortune reenters on his solo, bending into a really hip screaching upper register journey, which sends the audience into a flurry themselves. he really explores the lower and middle range, tackles everything he can, jumps again into the upper range and beyond brilliantly, and for the entire solo he has us captivated like a preacher in heat; he is relentless. chip jackson follows with bass solo. if you love the bass, you will love this solo. elvin then enters pulls out all stops and performs a long melodic drumming solo using cymbals, driving along in a complex and fascinating solo. the song closes exploratory in nature, with the two tenors together in unison. really an exciting jazz performance... yea ! mz
