Saxophonist Steve Griggs convinced legendary drummer Elvin Jones to record a session with four Seattle musicians in 1998. His Jones for Elvin was covered in the November 1999 reviews section. He is back with additional tracks, more Elvin and great music. This edition has seven tracks, six Griggs’ originals and the standard “The More I See You.” Beside “Zones For Elvin,” this isn’t an all-E.J. date. Griggs is a solid Coltrane disciple and is complemented by Petersen and Thomas. You cannot help but focus on the sticks of Jones, though. Whether the band plays a straight bop line or exquisite ballads, I followed the great man’s drumming throughout. Check it out at http://www.hipcitymusic.com.
