Transcription by Steve Korn: Elvin Jones - Summertime

Here's an old favorite- Elvin Jones' solo on the tune Summertime, from John Coltrane's My Favorite Things record. I think this is one of the first Elvin things I attempted to transcribe back in 1988 when I was at USC- I didn't own a CD player, and I don't think I even had a cassette recording of this- I did it off an LP.

God only knows where that is. This version was done (probably with fewer mistakes) by Steve Korn, a fellow Origin recording artist, and a great drummer, teacher, and author from Seattle. I have some more things of Steve's I'll be sharing with you later on- he's got a lot of great stuff on his site.
