Little Abi

After leaving Coltrane’s group, Elvin Jones spent much of the next 15 years touring with pianoless combos.  In 1972, however, he made time to record Hollow Out with bassist Gene Perla and pianist Masabumi Kikuchi at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio.  The album features five of Kikuchi’s original compositions and plenty of group improv.  I think the melody sounds especially good on tenor sax.
