Elvin Jones was one of the greatest drummers in jazz history.
Born in 1927 from a large family in Pontiac, Michigan, he became a professional player in the 1940's.
In his long career Elvin Jones has played, in his unmistikable style, with many of the most famous soloists of all times,
from Charlie Parker to Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and many others.
His most well-known involvement is with John Coltrane's Quintet, from 1960 to 1966.
After the Coltrane experience, Elvin Jones played with the Duke Ellington's Orchestra, and then he formed his own band, Elvin Jones' Jazz Machine.
In the drum sheet you'll find his solo taken from Bye Bye Blackbird, from the album "Autumn Leaves" recorded in 2002 by The Great Jazz Trio.
