180-gram triple LP
Previously unreleased 1967 Elvin Jones album!
Captures legendary drummer's emergence as a band leader
Blue Note Records has released Revival: Live at Pookie's Pub, a thrilling previously unissued live recording of Elvin Jones' quartet that captures the legendary drummer's emergence as a bandleader at a little-known club in New York City where he had a weekly residency after leaving John Coltrane's band in 1966. Featuring Joe Farrell on tenor saxophone, Billy Greene on piano, and Wilbur Little on bass, Revival was recorded between July 28-30, 1967, just two weeks after Coltrane died on July 17. The album finds the band stretching out on expansive versions of standards and bandmember originals.
Revival: Live at Pookie's Pub is available here in a deluxe 180-gram 3LP set which includes an extensive booklet with stunning photos by Francis Wolff, Ozier Muhammad, Christian Rose, and others; essays by Grammy-winning author and co-producer Ashley Kahn, co-producer Zev Feldman, executive producer Don Was, and the original recording engineer Bob Falesch; interviews and statements by drummers Alvin Queen and Michael Shrieve, pianist Richie Beirach, and Elvin Jones band alumni Pat LaBarbera, Gene Perla, and Dave Liebman.
