CD Reviews

Greatest unsung Elvin Jones album
D. Rapport | seattle, wa United States | 03/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At This Point in Time is certainly Elvin's most experimental and probably most unsung album of all time. While most of his albums are wonderful and feature Elvin doing music in his Coltrane-period jazz style (although a little bit more straight ahead than most of the stuff he did with Trane) this particular album features intricate, percussion heavy compositions with harmonically-rich horn arrangments and some wonderful moog synth and fender rhodes work by Jan Hammer. I wouldn't exactly call the music fusion or free jazz (if only because it doesn't really have a funk or a rock edge to it and there aren't any freakout skronk moments) however a better term may be world jazz. The song structures feature a lot of African and Afro-Cuban style percussion along with some beautiful, catchy, modal-based melodies and some amazing drum solos. Probably the most interesting music of Elvin's career. Do yourself a favor and buy this album immediately if you like Elvin, or if you are a fan of different and good jazz-based music. I real gem!"
Heyhey! my favorite Elvin Jones album!

"Yeah, this is my favorite Elvin Jones album!
The Cd features excellent Jazz-Fusion compositions and Elvin has all the power down. His typical playing is set into another form, direction and league. Jan Hammer on keys, Candido Camero and Omar Clay on percussion, Pepper Adams and Frank Foster on saxes and Cornell Dupree on guitar - what a line up!
The result is more than convincing!
Killer cut: "The Unknighted Nations" by Frank Foster!Get it!"
Awwww eeeyea...

"Zip bang pow and slap the back a that hip trunk. That sounds like the blessed union of the greatest of jazz elements old and new and though dated some by this writing, holds up for all time. Where has this rich fudge been all my life? I been starving for sounds that funky and that sophisticated harmonically."
