Elvin Jones was an icon of drumming, a powerful package of energy and inspiration and a true master of his craft. This historic live recording from 1981, released for the first time, shows the powerful and dynamic performance of this great musician in synergy with his superb band.
Jones called his own ensemble 'Jazz Machine' and this 1981 version included two tenor-saxophonists, Carter Jefferson and Dwayne Armstrong, guitarist Marvin Horne; and with the Japanese pianist Fumio Karashima, who added a noteworthy dosage of Far-East melodics and harmony to the concert. Together with Karashima and the well-tried bassist Andy McCloud, Elvin Jones had recorded a trio-LP just previously to the European tour documented here.
Personnel: Carter Jefferson, Dwayne Armstrong (saxophone), Fumio Karashima (piano), Marvin Horne (guitar), Andy McCloud (bass), Elvin Jones (drums)
