Overview:

Fine 1973 solo album from the drummer best known for his role in John Coltrane’s Classic Quartet. Elvin’s sixth and penultimate solo album for Blue Note.

A varied set touching on Latin Jazz and post bop, showcasing two Elvin compositions (the title track, ‘One’s Native Place’), two by Perla (‘G.G.’, ‘What’s Up? That’s It!’) one by Liebman
