Elvin Jones and His Drum Therapy

Writer Adam Mansbach was Elvin Jones’s drum tech for six years. And six years on the road with someone is like a lifetime in any other circumstance. His tribute and personal experiences truly convey that sweet, devilish, warm personality of this brilliant and remarkable artist. Don’t miss this. You will feel like you knew Elvin even if you were unlucky enough to have never met him.

Horace Parlan Speaks His Piece

Marc Myers’ loving tribute to the underrated pianist Horace Parlan begins with his ubiquitous 1960 trio and runs beautifully through highlights of his career. There is a great 2000 video of Horace playing solo piano and talking about his life. The only detraction is a plug for the European “public domain” bootleg set of seven of his Blue Note albums from the early sixties, which cheats artists and labels and steals digital transfers and copyrighted art and photographs. Even in death, these musicians are getting ripped off.
