On May 12 and 13 in 2002, Elvin Jones recorded his last album with his older brother Hank along with bassist Richard Davis as The Great Jazz Trio. Hank Jones wrote liner notes for Collaboration entitled "Elvin, my brother." An excerpt: "They say, The Good Die Young. I Agree. Thad and Elvin did. They dedicated their lives to what they loved and believed in, even if that meant shortening their lives. As a family member, I sometimes wonder if we could have done less and stayed together as a family longer. On the other hand, I wholeheartedly respect Elvins desire to live out his life (playing). Todays music world would not exist without him. The fact that he was a great drummer who influenced all those who came after him will forever remain in records and peoples memories".
