Dedicated to the memory of recently deceased jazz drum legend, Elvin Jones, this engaging swing original for proficient groups is a modal work that sets the tone for the drumming giants loose and open style of playing. Piano, trombone, and tenor saxophone are featured and John Fedchock's recognizable chord voicings are apparent throughout. Rousing background figures add to the excitement prior to the climactic finish where the drums are placed in the spotlight. The piece can end in classic "Elvin" style with a cymbal crash providing the perfect stylistic exclamation point. Don't miss this latest addition to the concert/festival literature! Duration 9:30. This piece appears on The John Fedchock Big Band recording "Up & Running.".
