“Principally because of his role from 1960 to 1966 as the reactor at the core of John Coltranes quartet, Elvin Jones is considered by many to be the apotheosis of modern jazz drumming.
By 1971, aged 44, Elvin had, with the help of bassist Gene Perla, assembled the pianoless quartet represented on this disc. Coltrane disciple Steve Grossman had joined Miles Davis on soprano sax aged just 18 in 1970 before defecting to Elvin. David Liebman was another gifted young saxophonist and flautist from the church of Trane then in his mid twenties. Both frontmen were extraordinary players intent on taking Coltranes musical developments to the next level. Elvin had it seemed finally managed to assemble a front line that could approach the energy and intensity of his former employer.
At the time of this January 16th 1973 Jazz Workshop performance, broadcast by WBCN-FM radio, the quartet had been a unit for two years and had just released Live At The Lighthouse (a double Blue Note LP recorded the year before).”
