One of Elvin Jones\’ greatest records – a set that\’s quite different from both his work in the John Coltrane Quartet, and some of the powerhouse jazz sides he\’d cut later as a solo act! The vibe here is a bit hard to describe, but it somehow comes together in the \”midnight walk\” of the title – as there\’s a pulsating rhythm to many of the numbers – one that comes partly from the record\’s great use of Dollar Brand on piano on some cuts. But other players are great, too – and there\’s some wicked electric piano work from Steve James – who really gives a few tracks a sinister edge – plus tenor from Hank Mobley, trumpet from Thad Jones, and added percussion from George Abend. Titles include \”Midnight Walk\”, \”HM On FM\”, \”The Juggler\”, \”All Of Us\”, and \”Cross Purpose\”. A great album, and a real lost treasure from the Atlantic back catalog!
