The Ultimate (Elvin Jones album). The Ultimate is an album by American jazz drummer Elvin Jones recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label.
By age 13, determined to be a drummer, Elvin was practicing eight to ten hours a day. In 1946 Elvin enlisted in the Army, and toured with a Special Services show called Operation Happiness - as a stagehand. Unofficially, however, he was honing his own musical skills and gaining confidence, playing at post social affairs. Jones was discharged in 1949, returning to a Detroit musical scene that was as vibrant as any outside New York.
