Elvin Jones kicks butt and then power solos

Great clip from a 70's Western featuring the legendary jazz drummer. Pretty surreal to see this but EJ does wupp on the drums pretty mightily.

I'm more entertained by the premise of this clip than the actual drumming, which is little more than a series of double stroke rolls - certainly not one of his best. Check this clip of 16 year old Brazilian drummer Eloy Casagrande (he was 14 at the time of this vid). Check out the polyrhythms he sets up between his left and right - and mostly single stroke rolls! Amazing!
