Elvin Jones has been celebrating his 70th birthday at the Blue Note this week. In the opening set on Tuesday, with a front line full of guests, the musicians reveled in simple, profound minor-key dirges taken from the post-1960 Coltrane school of hypnotism.
Important jazz musicians of the last 60 years in jazz were onstage: the trumpeters Harry (Sweets) Edison, Wynton Marsalis and Eddie Henderson, and the saxophonists Frank Foster, Sonny Fortune and Javon Jackson. It was a landmark show for the breadth of styles and histories in the horn players present.
