Elvin Jones: September 9, 1927 - May 18, 2004

AAJ pays special tribute to the life and legacy of drummer Elvin Jones...

"I feel very, very gratified when people are complimentary to what I have done or appreciated it with sincerity... It makes me feel that maybe I did do something that was proper and that was right."

~ Elvin Jones

The heaviest cat I ever knew... no question. He was way beyond the music—he really knew the deal! What a life he lived and what he gave to the world!!

~ Dave Liebman (on Elvin Jones)
