Five transcriptions of famous performances by master jazz drummer Elvin Jones, playing with saxophonist John Coltrane.
Best known for his recordings with John Coltrane, Elvin Jones is one of the great drummers in American music, or any music, and the deep emotional intensity of his playing is rarely matched even today.

A thorough understanding of his playing is a must for any serious drumming student.
