Blue Note Reissue series

A wonderful Elvin Jones session for Blue Note from 1970.On this one he deploys a double sax frontline of George Coleman and Frank Foster supported by Wilber Little on bass, Elvin on drums and the great Candido Camero on conga. Check out 5/4 Thing – as Leonard Feather puts it on the sleeve notes “A rhythmic circle of sound” and the Franck Foster classic “Simone”. Our favorite Elvin Jones album on Blue note, deep and spiritual. (courtesy of

Notre album préféré de Elvin Jones sur Blue note. Une superbe session 70’s du batteur de Coltrane,  avec deux saxophones, Georges Coleman et Franck Foster, accompagnés de Wilber Little à la basse et le maître congero Candido. Des poids lourds du jazz pour une formidable session, incluant notamment “5/4 thing” qui comme le décrit Leonard feather dans les notes de pochette est : “A rhythmic circle of sound”. 70’s jazz at his best!
