Wednesday, May 19


All time great jazz drummer, Elvin Jones, passed away on Tuesday (5/18). Jones was best known as a driving force behind the John Coltrane Quintet ensemble of the 1960's. I had the privilege of hearing Elvin Jones play at the Chicago Jazz Festival last summer. Between all the marijuna smoke (not mine) and the music, it was a pretty good night. :)

Thanks for the great music Elvin! I'm pretty sure there is going to be some nice jazz in Heaven - and I hope to see you kickin' it behind that drum set.
