Just got a copy of Jazz Times and there is an article about Elvin Jones.
Elvin said:

" When I was teaching at Frank Ippolito's drum clinic on 50th Street in 1972, Jaimoe Johnson and Butch Trucks - they still play w/ the Allman Brothers Band - came in and said they wanted to take a lesson from me. So I took them upstairs to my studio, and I said, 'what do you expect from me? You're already professionals. I can't teach you anything!' I felt like an idiot trying to teach them anything about the drums, because the were already first-class percussionists. I'm just glad to know young guys like that - I've known Jaimoe now for years."

Those are pretty mad props indeed eh bro?!

And as Elvin said, what could I teach them? Indeed, people like Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, and most of all, you, Jaimoe & Marc...

Thanks for everything bro. Like Elvin said, it should be other drummers asking you guys what's up. You're the best.

Wow, I hadn't seen this. What a well-deserved compliment. If anybody knew, Elvin did.
