    One of Elvin Jones' better CDs as a leader, HEAVY SOUNDS offers a plethora of aural pleasures. Whether it be Frank Foster's creative tenor work, or Richard Davis' fat, rounded double bass tone, this music really swings hard. With his sensitive, yet hard-hitting style, Jones himself is in superb form here.
    Highlights on HEAVY SOUNDS include a bass and drums duet version of "Summertime," and the beautiful ballad, "Here's That Rainy Day." On the former, Jones plays a particularly moving solo using timpani mallets. Jones also plays guitar (his first and only time) on this album--his old-fashioned delta blues style ain't half bad.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (2/00, p.76) - 3 out of 5 - "A curious set from '67, this one finds drummer Jones and bassist Davis leading a small group, featuring tenorist Frank Foster, through a set of blues and standards..."
