Elvin Jones Drum Clinic Video 1984

Maybe this is old news to some of you, but I recently stumbled across a huge archive at the University of North Texas Libraries and found a couple of hours of footage from April of 1984 when Elvin Jones was there giving a seminar. I’m still in shock that I didn’t know this existed until today.

I’m looking forward to exploring this resource to see what other gems have been archived. Enjoy!
