DBMITW: Elvin Jones

I was going to include this as an example in the jazz percussion post, but it really needs its own entry:

It feels wrong- totally point-missing- to bring it up, I couldn't help noting the little 5let figure that happens after 0:50. Away from the music it's easy to think of Elvin as playing a style, but when you actually listen he's always surprising you with little stuff like that.
