Liner Notes by Chico:
The idea for this project is to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest drummers, Elvin Ray Jones. All of the songs on this recording were compositions that Elvin Jones actually played on, wrote and/or were written for him by some of the most influential musicians of our time. Additionally, all of the musicians playing on this CD have either played with and/or recorded with Mr. Jones.

My personal relationship with Elvin also plays an important role here as well. It was my years with his band “The Elvin Jones Jazz Machine”, the fact that my first record date as a leader was given to me by Elvin and my first tours of Europe and the USA were with him. I had the great fortune of playing some of the most well known and historical jazz clubs in the world with him, The Keystone Korner in San Francisco, The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, The Village Vanguard in New York, The Jazz Workshop in Boston and Ronnie Scott’s in London to name a few. Not to mention the fact that I was having the opportunity to play with the drummer of the historical “John Coltrane Quartet”, a dream of quantum proportions and a great blessing received.

When Elvin passed away a great gap was left for us to ponder. He is and will always be missed. Every musician, let alone every drummer, owes him a great debt. I will ever be grateful for my time spent touring and recording with him, a great master and a beautiful, warm and giving person.


Die Idee dieses Projektes ist es, einem der
größten Schlagzeuger der Welt Tribut zu zollen:
Elvin Ray Jones.
Alle Stücke auf dieser CD wurden entweder
von Elvin Jones irgendwann gespielt, von ihm
komponiert oder von wichtigen Musikern unserer
Zeit für ihn geschrieben.
Ausserdem haben die Musiker auf diesem Album
alle mit Mr. Jones gespielt oder aufgenommen.
Chico Freeman tourte jahrelang durch Europe und
die USA mit “The Elvin Jones Jazz Machine”, seine
erste Plattenaufnahme wurde durch Elvin in die
Wege geleitet. Sie spielten in den berühmtesten
und historisch wichtigen Jazzclubs: The Keystone
Korner in San Francisco, The Lighthouse in
Hermosa Beach, The Village Vanguard in New
York, The Jazz Workshop in Boston und Ronnie
Scott’s in London, um ein paar zu nennen. Elvin
Jones spielte auch noch zwei weitere Alben
von Chico ein: “The Pied Piper” und “Tales of
Ellington”.
Die Kompositionen dieser CD stammen von
historischen Aufnahmen von John Coltrane,
Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner,
Elvin Jones, George Cables und dem Bandleader
selbst.
Als special guest hat Chico Joe Lovano gefunden,
einen Freund und genialen Kollegen (beide sind
Söhne großer Saxophonisten).
Die Aufnahmen wurden dort gemacht wo alles
begann: in New York City.
