Elvin Jones, John McLaughlin, Joey DeFrancesco: My Favorite Things
The common language of jazz is sublime, for those talented enough to speak it fluently. Jahn McLaughlin, Joey DeFrancesco and Elvin Jones stretch out on “My Favorite Things.” This is a song that Elvin played every night with John Coltrane from 1961 to ’65. His rhythmic conception and poetic agility define the performance. McLaughlin and DeFrancesco enjoy the ride and contribute their own brilliance within the confines of the concept.
