Poly-Currents Review

by Scott Yanow

Poly-Currents features drummer Elvin Jones leading a sextet full of notables, who include the underrated tenor great George Coleman; Joe Farrell on tenor, flute, and English horn; baritonist Pepper Adams; bassist Wilbur Little, and Candido on congas. They stretch out on group originals highlighted by "Mr. Jones" and "Whew." In addition, flutist Fred Tompkins teams up with Farrell's flute, Little, and Jones on his own "Yes." Advanced modal hard bop with all of the musicians playing in top form.
