Smokin'! Elvin Jones is a volcano of rhythm.
07/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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)"
God bless Elvin Jones

"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."

"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.

"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."
