ABSTRACT
PETER KING & ALAN SKIDMORE Forever Elvin (Miles Music) IF NOT contempt, familiarity can breed complacency from the British public where its jazz stars are concerned. Even the best homegrown performers can be taken for granted, a tendency exposed as unjustified by this formidable album. Recorded before an appreciative club audience in Suffolk, it finds altoist Peter King and tenorist Alan Skidmore in blistering form. The music is dedicated to drummer Elvin Jones, with whom they both worked, and the John Coltrane quartet, who influenced not only them but a whole generation. The set includes originals by Trane (Blues Minor, After the Rain), McCoy Tyner (Passion Dance) and Elvin (Three Card Molly), all given a world-class workout by the coleaders and pianist Steve Melling, a master of Tyner's keyboard concepts, bass ace Alec Dankworth and the sadly missed drummer Martin Drew, whose last recording this was.
