Happy Birthday Elvin Jones (1927-2004)

One of the greatest of the great jazz drummers. The first video is from 1961 with the John Coltrane Quintet, featuring, in addition to Jones and Trane, Eric Dolphy (alto sax), McCoy Tyner (piano), and Reggie Workman (bass).

And here is Elvin playing a pretty incredible solo 30 years later.
