Elvin Jones


As we focus on Detroit across the week, we pay homage to one of the Motor City’s most influential drummers, Elvin Jones. His extraordinary jazz career saw him work with Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Charles Mingus and the classic John Coltrane Quartet alongside Jimmy Garrison and McCoy Tyner, and you can hear some of our favourite excerpts from his discography in this hourlong mix.
