A truly special bean dedicated to a truly special drummer. Elvin Jones was among a handful of players who changed the definition of how a drummer is meant to function in his seismic five-year stint with the John Coltrane Quartet. His revolutionary style transformed the drums as a traditional time-keeping instrument. Employing a multilayered, polyrhythmic approach, Jones created a dynamic interplay with soloists unprecedented by earlier drum stylists. Jones is best remembered for pushing Coltrane into the stratosphere with his elemental power, dispersing and displacing the beat among all four limbs.
Tasting Notes: Strawberry, Black Grape, Saltwater Taffy. Like Elvin Jones, we truly feel this bean has changed the game.
