Elvin Jones Trio, Featuring Jimmy Garrison: Sweet Little Maia (1968)

I don’t watch much TV, but I would if it was more like this 1968 clip from the Danish show Jazz Omkring Midnat.

The Elvin Jones Trio, consisting of drummer Elvin Jones, bassist Jimmy Garrison and saxophonist Joe Farrel plays the tune “Sweet Little Maia.”

The trio gets to really stretch out since there isn’t a chordal instrument, and Garrison really plays his heart out during his solo.
