Recorded on February 12, 1971 at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

One listen to Elvin Jones' Genesis will leave many listeners asking "How did I miss this record?" In 1971, the great years of Blue Note were in the past but the label was still recording superb sessions. The difference was that it often took years for the best recordings to be released and they were being overshadowed by more commercial sets from the label. Genesis fell through the cracks, making it one of the most exciting passed-over records from the late Blue Note period. 

Dave Liebman, Frank Foster and Joe Farrell, three brilliant and competitive saxophonists, battle it out on these performances with Elvin Jones setting a fire under every solo. Jones makes sure that not only is the fuse never put out but the music is absolutely explosive. Do not miss this remarkable recording the second time around!

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
